Band Name Origins:

  • There used to be a place in Orlando (where the group is based) called 'The Backstreet Market'. At the time, (the mid-90's) it was a popular hangout for teens and so they used it and added 'Boys' because they said "no matter how old we get, we'll always be boys!" Submitted by: Heather
  • From the Backstreet Market in Orlando, some of the boys' original home. Submitted by: Shadow Phoenix

Stupid Band Names:

I try to hide it so that no one knows

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Everybody (Backstreet's Back)"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Am I original? (yeah yeah)
Am I the only one? (yeah yeah)
Am I sexual? (yeah yeah)
Why They're Insincere:
ok, first of all, the backstreet boys suck! And, this doesn't make any sense at all! Am I original? no. New Kids on the Block were the first boy band! Am I the only one? no. hellooo, ever heard of N'sync???? Am I sexual? no! Their fans are pre teens, and here they are saying they're sexual?! Thats just wrong.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

The Misrhymed Lyrics:
And my heart did time in Siberia
cause it's all so dark and mysterious
Why They're Misrhymed:
It's original, but it's amazing how you can manage to change pronunciation to make a rhyme kind of work
Submitted by: supernixi
"I Want It That Way"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Tell me why, ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why, ain't nothing but a mistake
Why They're Misrhymed:
The accent on 'mistake' is shifted to the first syllable, when it should be pronounced 'mis-take', not 'mis-take'. It may rhyme, but there's no ***flow*** to it! A very smooth song otherwise. Too bad they had to put it in the chorus, where it gets repeated over and over :P

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Helpless When She Smiles"
The Insulting Lyrics:

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Don’t Want You Back "
The Dirty Lyrics:
You hit me faster than a shark attack And you were more than just a pretty face But how you fooled me, I am still amazed But I should have know that I would be another victim of your sexuality You started going out with so-called friends Baby, do not bother telling me your reasons why
Why They're Dirty:
First and foremost let me just say this song is basically about cheating. It all makes sense once you break done the lyrics and read them thoroughly. Make sense doesn’t it?? Anyway lets begin. The first four verses talk about. How one of the boys meets a girl and he had feelings for her. But if I’m correct she only used him for sexual things. Well you know what I mean... And then the girl starting hanging out with other guys. And when I mean hanging out I mean doing very questionable things. And at the end when she tries to give her many reasons why what she did. He’s not taking any of her bullshit and they ended the relationship. BTW, I did another one of these on this same page but I’m not saying which one I did HA!
Submitted by: My name doesn’t matter
"We've Got It Goin On"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Just can't hold it back no more. Creepin up and down now. It's time for me to let it go.
Why They're Dirty:
It's really horny but has a dry spell to it. Well anyways be my guest and go watch the video on YouTube.

How your love's affecting our reality
Everytime we're down you can make
it right and that makes you larger than life

"Backing Out Of Their Management Contracts"
The Backstreet Boys were taken under the tutalage of Louis Pearlman who was boy band swengali and the band's creator when they suddenly realized that they were making more money than they getting The Boys ended up suing Trans-Continental Entertainment to get out of their management deal with Pearlman. After a full year of legal wrangling they were let out of their management deal with Trans-Con and were free to sign on to Wright Entertainment Group to handle their money. The group alledged that Pearlman took more money than he was entitled to.
