Backstreet Boys - Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) (by BackstreetBoysVEVO)

@AlyssaRosenberg: Boy bands, creepier than you realized 

Our default assumption tends to be, I think, that boy band songs are substanceless trifle meant to make girls feel all lovey-dovey. But listening to this stuff through the years is a reminder that when boys talk to girls about love, even and maybe especially in commercial packaging, things can get awfully creepy.


@PaleGirlSquad: I don’t care. I’m never going to stop loving the one that’s the best boy band video featuring monsters.

@cleolinda: Well obviously, same here. I mean, I need to be shown how they’re going to bring the flavor. It’s an eternal question.
