* ''No Strings Attached'' went platinum its first ''day'', selling 1.1 million, and ended its first week of release with 2.4 million records sold, making it the fastest selling album in the US.
* While ''Celebrity'' did not sell as well as ''No Strings Attached'', it also set a record of 1.8 million sold in its first week. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fastest-selling_albums_worldwide Ten years later and these two records have yet to be broken]], and most likely never will be considering how much the industry has changed since then.
* Their 2001 [=PopOdyssey=] tour, which had them touring ''football stadiums'', had them flying out over their audience on zip wires and riding mechanical bulls for "Space Cowboy" and fighting off a evil wizard for "The Game Is Over".
** JC even sings the first verse of "Space Cowboy" ''upside down'' as they zip down.
* Their 2013 reunion at the [=VMAs=]. While it was shorter than fans would have liked, it was awesome enough to prompt Music/LadyGaga to jump out of her seat and flail around excitedly while Music/TaylorSwift started crying TearsOfJoy.
** Their reunion led to a huge sales spike on iTunes, with several of their albums suddenly charting on the best sellers list. Their ''Greatest Hits'' album rocketed up to No. 18, while ''No Strings Attached'' reached No. 29. While they didn't chart as impressively, their self-titled ranked at No. 61 and ''Celebrity'' reached No. 100. They received similar sales spikes at Amazon, with ''Greatest Hits'' and ''No Strings Attached'' reaching No. 10 and No. 11 respectively on the "Movers & Shakers" chart.
* Their memorable 2000 VMA performance, best known for the iconic TV heads during the "Bye Bye Bye" section of the medley.
* Their 2001 VMA performance featured a dance performance from ''Music/MichaelJackson'' himself.
** The same year they were invited to perform for Michael Jackson's 30th Anniversary Concert, singing "Dancing Machine" along side Michael and the briefly reunited Jackson 5.
** If that wasn't enough, they also had the honor of inducting the King of Pop into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
* They were invited to sing the national anthem at the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pIaFRta8Qc 2000 World Series]], which they performed a cappella. They were booed until they started to sing, at which the crowd then fell silent and then started raucously cheering when the song was finished.
** Even more impressive, during an appearance on Rosie O'Donnell's talk show they mentioned that there was a 2 second delay on their ear monitors, meaning throughout the entire performance they couldn't tell if they were all singing in time.
* They can play instruments, they just choose not to. Their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75zSz5eMGAo tribute]] to the 60s and wholesale ShoutOut to ''Film/ThatThingYouDo'' had JC and Chris on vocals with Chris on guitar, Justin on bass, Joey on drums, and Lance on keyboards.
** One clip of them on MTV had Justin and Lance messing around with a piano, but it's clear from other angles that Lance is the one actually playing, while Justin was just tapping away at a key or two.
* They were the first and only all-white group to be on Creator/{{BET}}'s 106 & Park, with "Pop", "Gone", and "Girlfriend" getting regular rotations on the show.
* Their joint performance with Music/{{Aerosmith}} for the SuperBowl XXXV Half Time Show in 2001, especially the "Walk This Way" finale when they were joined by Music/BritneySpears, Music/MaryJBlige, and Nelly.
* They not only performed for the 2002 [[OlympicGames Olympic]] Concert Series, but were invited to sing the NationalAnthem for the closing ceremony.
* Their a cappella tribute to Music/TheBeeGees at the 2003 Grammys garnered a standing ovation from the audience, especially from the remaining Gibbs and Maurice's widow.
* These rearrangements of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjuyaecWXIE Bye Bye Bye]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1I0aTsuMqk It's Gonna Be Me]]" prove that, though it was something they were known for, they didn't need an elaborate production to put on a good show.
* Their cover of Music/JanetJackson's "That's The Way Love Goes", especially since they recorded the song and filmed a video for it in one day.
** Somewhat related, their first single, "I Want You Back", was also recorded in one day.
* When asked to do an impromptu version of their cover of "More Than A Feeling", they initially hemmed and hawed as they had not performed the song in a long time and claimed they were rusty. They [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tjb2jwA0YCY nailed it a cappella]].
* The fact that Lance was able to complete Star City's rigorous cosmonaut training, despite not being able to go in space and that it made him the butt of many jokes, is pretty astounding in itself since he had no prior experience. He's also claimed it was easier to train for that than his stint on ''Dancing With The Stars''.
** Even more impressive is the fact that he had to condense a full years worth of training into a little less than 6 months due to prior commitments to *NSYNC.
