With the Jonas Brothers split up and grumblings from One Direction members about “solo projects” we might be witnessing the twilight of the post-millennial boy-band era. But this is hardly the first time we’ve swooned over post-adolescent males with falsetto voices and embarrassing hairstyles.

Sure you remember “I Wanna Sex U Up” and “I Adore (Mi Amore),” but do you recall CMB’s groundbreaking appearance on Beverly Hills 90210?

This Ohio quartet scored a Number One with “Gimme Just One Night (Una Noche)”, but we’ll always remember Nick Lachey as one half of the MTV Show Newlyweds.
