90's Boy Bands Were Filled With Naughty Boys

So during my 4 hours in the car alone on Monday, I was jamming. Full blown American Idol audition in my car.

And of course, for a good hour I was jamming to my 90's playlist. I mean, duh.

I remember being 12 years old and knowing EVERY SINGLE WORD to some of these songs. My parents have a video, hopefully hidden, of me at 10 singing and dancing to Genie in a Bottle. Swear. I knew every word to these songs and even now, I sing them and I know all the words. But have you ever really listened to the words? Listened to what you're saying? Because it's dirty.

90's boy bands were full of naughty boys! I can't believe my parents let me even sing some of these things. For example..


NSYNC -  Up Against The Wall

Lyrics -->
She took my hand
We never said a word at all
We starting grinding
Shorty had me up against the wall

**I sang those words as a child. Can't believe I wasn't sent to the Principals office more often**


 BACKSTREET BOYS - Get Down (You're The One For Me)

Lyrics -->
Come on girl and get down
Smack it up
Flip it
And move it all around
Here it is if you wanna get with this
Put you on the top of my list, uh

**Other lyrics worth mentioning: "You're the one for me, You're my ecstasy" Because it totally makes sense for a 10 year old to say ecstasy.**


DREAM STREET - Let's Get Funky Tonite

Lyrics -->
Turn down the lights
And feel the rhythm
I'll give you everything
I'll take you to heaven

**They'll take me to heaven? I wonder what I thought that meant back in the day**


98 DEGREES - Can I Touch You There

Lyrics -->
Let me lick you up and down
We'll make the sexy sounds
If we set if off tonight

**This one is apparently so dirty that I couldn't even find a YouTube video of it. But just look.. the sexy sounds? Can't believe I was in 5th grade singing that**


BACKSTREET BOYS - If You Want It To Be Good Girl (Get Yourself A Bad Boy)

Lyrics -->
If you want it to be wild
Gotta know just who to dial baby (that's me)
If you really like it hot
Find someone who hits the spot honey (oh yes)

**I used to JAM to this song. I remember boys singing this song and saying they were bad boys. Hahahah, I die**


98 DEGREES - Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)

Lyrics -->
Give me just one night, una noche!
I'll give you the time of your life!
(the time of you life, ooooh)
(I'll give you the time of your life)
(oooh baby yeah!)

**At 11 what did "the time of my life" mean to me? Good Lordy**


O-TOWN - Liquid Dreams

Lyrics -->
I dream about a girl who's a mix of Destiny's Child
Just a little touch Madonna's wild style
With Janet Jackson's smile, throw in a body like Jennifers'
You've got the star of my liquid dream

**I just.. I can't.. I don't have any words. I was actually allowed to listen to this? And what the hell did I think this meant?**


NSYNC - Digital Get Down

Lyrics -->
I love the things you do for me so late at night
So turn me on yeah
It's like I'm right there next to you yeah

**I was beyond obsessed with this album and this song! I know every word to every song on the album.. and this one is about phone sex. Really you need to look up all the lyrics if you don't know the song, because they're classic**

So there you go, the boy band boys were dirty boys! And now I know I didn't fully appreciate them at 12.

  1. Hahah this is awesome! I used to jam to the Backstreet Boys songs and I kept thinking "man this sounds bad but it can't be because it's BSB!" haha

  2. It's like when you watch a TV show you watched as a kid, but as an adult and the story line or what the characters had to say meant something completely different than what you thought. I'm guilty of listening to the dirty boys too apparently.

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!!!! I literally just muffled-laughed for 10 minutes at my desk at work reading this post! Lately when I listen to old songs, I think the same thing! I mean, I was OBSESSED with the Spice Girls, but gah! That was some crazy stuff! 2 become 1!! Seriously? How did my mom not rip the headphone off my head and tell me to quit being such a pervert?? Thanks for this post! I totally got an ab-workout trying to stifle my laughter!


  4. OMG love this post! I was totally in love with NSYNC and knew all the words...and thinking back, they are dirty! And I had no clue what they were about when I was singing them hahaha. It actually makes me want to go back and watch all the videos and listen to their songs again!!

  5. I was thinking about this the other day...the lyrics in some of those songs! Haha.
    May I add to the list: "I Will Show You Mine" by LFO (I don't think it was a single but it was on their first album)

  6. Lol...this made me laugh. so true, though!! What were our parents thinking??

  7. but for reals. who didn't love FIVE! even if they were dirty haha

  8. Yes!!! I realized this and was like O_o OMG "Digital Get Down" is my favorite and "Liquid Dreams" totally blindsided me when I found out what it really meant. I felt so dirty lol

  9. The things that went RIGHT over our heads then are hilarious!

  10. Isn't it funny how things to a child mean something different than things to an adult? Gosh, I remember loving some of those songs myself growing up and I know I definitely wasn't thinking about how dirty the lyrics were. Crazy!

  11. I remember being 8 or 9 at the skating rink listening/singing to Everybody by BSB and thinking that I should NOT be singing these lyrics.

    "Am I original?
    Am I the only one?
    Am I sexual?

  12. It's funny because I'll hear One Direction's newest song on the radio and think "how can parents let their kids listen to this dirty trash?" and then I'll put my own music collection on shuffle and hear some classic Britney or BSB and wonder why my parents let *me* listen to some of that stuff!

  13. This is soooooo true.
    I just got SAT radio, and listen to xm10, the 2000-2009 station.
    Some of the early 2000's songs come on, I sing along until I realize what I'm singing and get all embarrassed.

    To think, my parents let me buy these albums!


I love you people! Let's be friends.
