If my 11-year-old sister asked me to name the members of One Direction, I would be foolishly stumped. The only one I know of is Harry Styles, and I would not even be able to recognize him on a magazine cover.

A.J. McLean, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Nick Carter, however, I could ring off in a moment’s time, as if I were still a squealing tween who melted at the sound of any track off of Millenium.

Assuming you know who I am referring to since you are still reading, let’s just take a moment to bask in the nostalgic memories of the fleeting 1990s, when we begged our mothers to let us buy the newest Backstreet Boys album and fought over who got to marry the beach blonde Nick Carter.

Though the Backstreet Boys has had a few reunions over the years, their biggest comeback is about to hit us all. According to USA Today, the seven time Grammy nominated pop group has announced plans for a BSB Documentary that is set to be released in 2014. In addition, the BSB is working on an eighth album in honor of the band’s 20th anniversary!

While a part of me is excited for the upcoming documentary, another part feels sad and old. There is a limit to how great this BSB re-vamp will be since pretty much nothing can top the glory of the group’s golden days. Looks like I will be catching this flick not with my sister, who will never find joy in buying a CD, but with my friends, with whom I still break into spontaneous renditions of “I Want It That Way.”
