98 Degrees: Then

Unlike most other boy bands of the 1990s, 98 Degrees (pictured in 1998) wasn't assembled by a super-producer -- this soul-influenced quartet rose to fame the old-fashioned way, by playing talent shows and sending out demos. The group came together in L.A. and was made up of former Ohio residents (from left to right) Jeff Timmons, brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, and Justin Jeffre. After breaking through with the song "True to Your Heart" on the Disney soundtrack for "Mulan" in 1998, the group released two multi-platinum albums, "98 Degrees and Rising" (1998) and "Revelation" (2000), before going on permanent hiatus in 2002.
