*NSYNC Reunite For JC Chasez's 40th Birthday

It's been a long, painful 14 years since *NSYNC said 'Bye Bye Bye' in 2002. In a year where everything from the 90s is making a comeback to cash in on our sweet, sweet nostalgia, *NSYNC has been noticeably absent. So many other boy bands from that era have announced some sort of reunion in the past year, from Backstreet Boys to 98 Degrees, and even O-Town. Meanwhile *NSYNC fans have had to make do with an all-too-brief 90 second performance at the 2013 VMA's. On Monday, Justin Timberlake managed to rekindle the dreams of 90s kids with one of the most exciting Instagram posts ever made.

Why yes, that is in fact all five members of *NSYNC in a single photo that WASN'T taken over a decade ago. Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick got back together with JC Chasez last night to celebrate his 40th birthday. And yes, I did say 4-0, so let's all take a moment to feel absolutely ancient.

Understandably, any prospect of an *NSYNC reunion has the Internet losing its collective mind.


And obviously, the photo is trending everywhere.


While Justin's caption "And, if you don't know, now you know..." has got everyone hoping that they'll give us the reunion tour we've all been wanting, the chances of that happening any time soon are pretty slim. For now, at least, we have that photo to give us life and keep the dream alive. C'mon *NSYNC, don't you know we want you back?

10 Of The Weirdest Objects Michael Jackson Kept At Neverland Ranch

You've all heard of Neverland Ranch, and if you haven't...well then I'm not sure you live on this planet. Owned and occupied by Michael Jackson, Neverland Ranch was based off the fantasy island of Neverland from Peter Pan, where boys never grow up. The property became pretty controversial, after allegations of sexual assault against Michael Jackson started circulating. In 2003, the Neverland Ranch was searched by 70 police officers after accusations arose that Michael Jackson had molested children on the premises.

There's A Scientific Reason The Music You Loved As A Teenager Is Better

If you take a look at your most recently played songs, what shows up? Is there anything that has been released in the past 10 years? Unlikely.
