Boy Bands: The Way They Were

Let's go back to a simpler time: when bandannas were bedazzled, tribal tattoos were hot, and boy bands ruled the world


Who? Drew Lachey, Nick Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre
Known for: having tribal tattoos, muscles and sweet, sweet harmonies
A rare quartet in the fab five world of boy bands – even rarer? They weren't created in a lab by a music producer – the foursome idolized Boyz II Men over boy bands. They were renowned for their brand of wedding dance-ready swoony ballads ("I Do (Cherish You)" and "Because of You.") And, of course, Nick + Jessica 4-eva.
