There might not have been?

This article will definitely raise your eyebrow... and will make you ask, "Oh, really?" Well, if you are a fan of The Moffatts!

Still fight in the Boys
Thu, November 6, 2008
When all the other boy bands they helped spawn have come and gone, the Backstreet Boys have reinvented themselves -- again.


Touring to support Unbreakable, Backstreet Boys return to JLC.

On this tour, the Backstreet Boys give new meaning to hitting the stage.

A boxing ring is rolled forward onto the stage as a hammed-up fight announcement is issued from the speakers, introducing the band: Nick Carter. Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and A.J. McLean.

Clad in boxing robes, the band bounces around the ring and kicks into Larger Than Life, a hit off its 1999 Millennium album. Within seconds, the Boys return in leather jackets and black T-shirts and launch into Everyone off their Black and Blue record.

Sometimes, Dorough wears a Black Sabbath T. Well, it is a different look for the still-influential Boys.

You could argue that if it weren't for the Backstreet Boys, there would not be an 'N Sync -- or a Justin Timberlake. Well, you could argue that.

More safely, you could say if it weren't for the Backstreet Boys there might not have been Boyzone, 98 Degrees, React, b4-4, Westlife, Plus One, Dreamstreet, Wave, 5ive, O-Town, a1, the Moffatts, Savage Garden, LFO, Marshall Dyllon, I.D., 2Gether, mytown, soulDecision, BBMak, 911, Take 5 or McMaster & James. (Fans who recall that the last Moffatts concert ever took place at Centennial Hall on Aug. 25, 2001, can take a bow here.)
