Before the Age of Beliebers, before Team Edward or Team Jacob, girls across America swore their allegiance to one of two boy bands: '̶N̶s̶y̶n̶c̶ ̶o̶r̶ or The Backstreet Boys.

It's been over 20 years since the greatest boy band of the '90s wormed their way into our hearts and ears. In celebration of that, let's take a look back at some of their greatest moments.

1992 - The Beginning

Check out this video the boys posted to Facebook for their 20th anniversary three years ago. Why they didn't stick to the suits is beyond me.

1996 - Backstreet Boys

This was the year the boys released their first album with Jive Records and started their steady ascent to the top.

1997 - Backstreet's Back

...not that they ever left.

1999 - Millennium

Thus begins the era of BSB's international stardom.

2000 - Black & Blue

2005 - Never Gone

After Black & Blue, the boys disbanded for a little while, but then reformed to put out their aptly named fifth album: Never Gone. Unfortunately, Kevin would ultimately leave the group at the end of their tour in 2006.

2007 - Unbreakable

Despite being down a boy, the band put out two albums: Unbreakable and This Is Us.

2009 - This Is Us

2013 - In A World Like This

Guess who's back??? The prodigal Kevin returned home in 2012, in time to put out the group's most recent album.

2015 - Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of

A journey like theirs can only accurately be captured in documentary form.
