Backstreet Boys: Then

Yet another record-breaking group formed in Orlando, Fla., Backstreet Boys (pictured in 1997) are still the best-selling boy band of all time, and one of only three musical acts in history to have their first seven albums reach the Billboard Top 10. From 1997 to 2000, the Backstreet Boys -- made up of (from left to right) A.J. McLean, Kevin Richardson, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough -- dominated the U.S. pop charts with hits like "Quit Playin' Games (With My Heart)," "I Want it That Way," and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)." The group went on hiatus in 2001, in part to support McLean's decision to go into rehab. They decided to reunite after an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" a few years later.
