Think of late '90s/early '00s pop music, and chances are that one of your thoughts will be of *NSYNC. Formed by Lou Pearlman (the same guy who brought you the Music/BackstreetBoys), *NSYNC first started out by touring in Europe before reaching world-wide fame with their album ''No Strings Attached''. Formed circa [[TheNineties 1995]] with JustinTimberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Joey Fatone, the band went on hiatus in 2002.
In the end, they turned out to be pretty damn successful. ''No Strings Attached'' currently holds the record for highest opening week album sales (2.4 million), they've sung with Music/BritneySpears, performed on ''SaturdayNightLive'', and have their own wax figures. Not too bad.
