15 Years Later, Backstreet Boys' 'Millennium' Is The Greatest Ever: Here’s Proof

If this doesn't prove it you, nothing will…

May 18, 1999 is a day that will forever hold a special place in my heart, and those of millions of Backstreet Boys fans.

Not only was it the day Millenium was released, it was also the start of a pop-music and boy band movement.

It made the Backstreet Boys some of the biggest stars on the planet --- not to mention a constant staple on MTV's "Total Request Live." The album sold 1.1. million copies in its first week, earned them five Grammy nominations and made Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson household names.

15 years later, the album is still the greatest boy band album of all time, and here's why:

It Gave Us Arguably The Best Pop Song Ever

Along With This Dance Move

A Solo For Kevin!

And The #3 Spot On TRL's Most Iconic Videos List

They Thanked Us For Being Their Biggest Fans... While In Space

Even Though Their #1 Fans Were There Moms

Which Showed Us The Meaning Of Being Lonely

But That's OK, Because Nick Melted Our Hearts With This Solo Song

It Had The Power To Shut Down Times Square

And Cause A Mass Case Of Hysteria

They Performed At The 1999 VMAs And AJ Wore A Crop Top

They Went On Tour Wearing Body Armor With Shoulder Pads

It Earned Them Artist Of The Year At The Billboard Awards

And It's One Of The Best Selling Albums Of All Time
