You ready for it? Here goes....
I used to have a really popular Backstreet Boys website when I was about 12.
That's right. Backstreet Boys.
For those of you who know me, or have been reading la blog long enough to know my likes and dislikes, you are already well aware of my love for metal, "rock", classic rock, alternative etc - and my general disdain for most things "pop".
The same was true when I was younger. For me, the heavier the music the better.
I had a Backstreet Boys site.
To be fair, I also had another site dedicated to metal bands and the lovely long-haired men who were in them.
But the Backstreet Boys site absolutely blew up. It was INSANELY popular, and I cannot even tell you why. This blog hasn't seen even a fraction of what that site got. My guestbook was huge, the chatroom was always full, and my fan mail never stopped.
My poor little heavy metal site suffered in comparison.
I think the main reason I liked those damn Boys of Backstreet was due to one AJ McLean:
He was the "bad boy" out of the 5, and I was pretty much in pre-teen love with him. (Didn't he end up with a drug problem? Sigh...)
I just thought I'd share that little bit of info with you. I had forgotten about that site until the other day - when I googled it, I found write ups and info about the page that no longer exists.
Ah. It feels good to get that off my chest.
Blog friends that share together, stay together. But if you judge me, you will endure my wrath.
