While we’re all about the girl groups and boy bands of today — oh yeah, Little Mix & One Direction! — we can’t help but reminisce over the forgotten mixed music acts from the mid-’90s/early ’00s; as in co-ed groups. Do any exist now? Eh, not really. To remind you of some of the best, here are eight that only a true child of the ’90s/’00s would remember:
S Club 7 (1998–2002)
MOST KNOWN FOR: “I’ve Never Had a Dream Come True”
Sure, there’s an S Club 3 around somewhere, but it’s not the same.
Scene 23 (2001–2002)
MOST KNOWN FOR: “He Said, She Said”
Eden’s Crush came from Popstars; Scene 23 came from Popstars 2 — the time of great music reality TV shows.
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Upside Down”
THE ABBA tribute band.
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Barbie Girl”
Still get this song stuck in our heads every time we see the Mattel toy.
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Spinnin’ Around”
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom”
I want you in my room // Let’s spend the night together // From now until forever
American Juniors (2003–2005)
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Sundown”
Look, it’s little Lucy Hale!
MOST KNOWN FOR: “Around the World (La La La La La)”
FUN FACT: ATC stands for A Touch of Class. Who knew?
