Whether it be a blockbuster release, game-changing performance, live mishap, or something in between, we’re here to dig through the archives and highlight some of the biggest moments in pop music history.

Millennium debuts May 18, 1999

Over two decades since their debut, the Backstreet Boys are thriving. They might not have hits ruling the Billboard Hot 100, but the business behind the pop collective still works just fine.
