*NSYNC Flashback: 03/21/2000
Do you remember where you were, ten years ago today? Were you standing in line outside of a music store, waiting to pick up your copy of *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached? Were you pacing your school hallway while your parents/sister/aunt/grandma went to buy the CD for you? Do you remember the feeling of holding it in your hands, breaking the seal, unwrapping the cellophane, putting it in the CD player? Did you *squeal* at the first strains of “Bye Bye Bye” streaming through the speakers at volume 10, that Dolby Surround Sound kicking so much bass it shook the floor?
Oh, was that just me? Happy NSA DAY, Superfans! IT’S HERE!
It’s not only NSA Day, but it is the 10th anniversary of the release of No Strings Attached, the record breaking smash of the decade! Who knew that on this day, ten years ago, *NSYNC would make history as the first band to break 1.1 million units sold in one day, and more than 2.4million units sold in ONE WEEK! Trivia: Did you know that the only release to come close to breaking this record is………Celebrity??? Yep! *NSYNC holds the #1 and #2 spot. When they dominate, they like to do it right!
Join us for a day of looking back and celebrating a time when Pop was king and *NSYNC ruled. We’re listening to the album (if you pledged to pick it up at iTunes, please comment and let us know that you did! We want to know!), watching videos, chatting about the hits and one of the best days in *NSYNC fandom. If you have fan art or a contribution to add to our page at stillnsync.com/nsa, we’re still taking entries all week … you’re not too late!
Now, I don’t know about any other Superfans, but I am ready to get into some dirty pop! Happy NSA DAY!
