19 *NSYNC Songs That Defined Your Tweenhood

Whether it be a Total Request Live hit or an album deep cut, listening to a song from *NSYNC's catalog in 2016 is like taking a ride with a space cowboy back to The Early Aughts Pop Era; whenever I hear the boy band's delightfully turn-of-the-millennium sound, I am teleported to a time before the quintet of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass went on "hiatus." Remember when we thought the post-Celebrity "break" was truly a break? Were we ever so young?

I've carefully selected 19 *NSYNC tunes that will most certainly take you back to your childhood (or tweendom) (or teendom) (or however-old-you-were-in-the-late-‘90s-and-early-'00s-dom). These tracks will transport you to a time when the air was thick with Juice Bar Cotton Candy Refreshee Spray. To a time when the beverages hailed from a mythical land called Fruitopia. To a time when we listened to music not via streaming services we downloaded off of the World Wide Web (our dialup connections shudder at the thought), but through the portable compact disc players we purchased at electronic superstores like Incredible Universe and Best Buy. I recommend that you buckle your ears' seatbelts.

Are you ready? Are you sure? Because yes, yes, yes, here we go. These *NSYNC songs will forever have the flow.
