Happy *NSYNC Day to one and all!!!
18 years ago on this date, a young man named James Lance Bass, shook hands with Justin Timberlake, J.C. Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick for the first time!
And the world became a better place!
Lance was the last member to join the mega boy band on that day, October 1, 1995.
(Fun fact: the second "N" in their acronymic name is actually for JasoN Galasso, an original member of the group; Lance's initial was never recognized! Poor Lance!)
No matter what their name was, their music was AH-Mazing, with three studio albums, two Greatest Hits records, two Christmas albums and nine Top 20 singles!
Today, Mr. Bass sent out a throwback pic to his fans on Instagram of him and the *NSYNC guys back in the day, along with the caption:
"18 years ago today I met @realjoeyfatone @jtimberlake@jcchasez and @iamckirkpatrick Our dysfunctual family is pretty kick ass."
Kick ass, indeed!!!
Ch-ch-check out all of the old school *NSYNC photos we dug up below!
OMG! We want these 5 back! That VMA reunion just wasn't enough!
