Boy band reunions - cute or desperate (re: NSync reunion announced today)

NKOTB, BSB and now Timberlake and Friends all getting back together this year to perform. Is it a big nostalgia fest or a desperate grab for the old days (by the bands or the fans)?

  • What would make Timberlake think this was a brilliant career move?

    I'm wondering if it's like the Jacksons' Victory tour - where the brothers hounded and guilted Michael into doing one more album with the brothers since he got so famous from Thriller.

  • weird. BSB & Nsync were the boy bands of my generation. Their music doesnt really speak to the 12 year olds of today, and those of us that are pushing 30 have moved on.

  • Desperate.

    Bret Michaels plays here once a year and the people that go see him are so pathetic. They act like it's the most amazing night of their lives. Drinking Coors Light and listening to this one trick pony. Sad.

  • Desperate grab for the old days for both? It seems that way to me, but I've never been a huge fan, and I was a preteen/teen when they were big.
