Is One Direction A Backstreet Boys Rip-Off? AJ McLean Says …
Back in the days of TRL and a young Carson Daly, before there were television shippers, there were boy-band fan clubs. And trust us, they were just as intense (if not more so). In the 90’s, it was *NSync versus Backstreet Boys, and in 2012, it’s One Direction’s turn to go head-to-head with the much older Backstreet Boys.
Backstreet Boy AJ McLean recently spoke to TMZ about the idea that One Direction is nothing but a Backstreet knockoff. AJ pointed out that every song title on One Direction’s album was almost identical to a Backstreet lyric. And we have to admit that when TMZ put him to the test, he kind of proved his point.
Could he be right? Is One Direction a BSB rip-off?
But before we end this battle of the boy bands, we have to take a trip back in time, because TMZ also spoke with Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell, who challenged his interviewer to name five great *NSync songs. So we take it the feud isn’t a thing of the past?
We love these guys and their competitive spirit. Perhaps that’s why they’re still around and currently working on another record?
