Backstreet Boys Tweet ’90s-tastic Throwback VMAs Photo

Backstreet's back, all right!

How ’90s is the VMA throwback photo that the Backstreet Boys just posted to Twitter? Let’s count the ways.

1. The “Matrix”-inspired black trench coats and shades. I’m thinking it’s not a coincidence that the movie came out a few months earlier.

2. The one (at least) confirmed case of frosted tips. (Lookin’ at you, A.J.)

3. The matching combat boots.

4. Nick Carter. All of Nick Carter.
