The '90s were the golden age of boy bands , but recent years have been treating them well, too. While some reunited just for a quick performance (*NSYNC), others have released new albums (Backstreet Boys), and others are aiming to take on the world again (O-Town, minus Ashley Parker Angel ). It's hard to keep track of all of these nostalgic favorites, so we've rounded up a status update on all the biggest boy bands, including favorites from the '80s and '90s. But let's be honest — it will always be *NSYNC vs. BSB  in our hearts.
