Every boy band is a ripoff of a previous boy band. That's not new or surprising.

Any of you actually watch the video? They're comparing song titles, which was true. There's too many similar titles to be coincidences

*NSYNC was a knock-off of the Backstreet Boys. 2013 will mark the Backstreet Boys 20th Anniversary together.

Is it 1997 again? The only reason he cares is because he, along with the other Forgottens of VH1 Pop Up Video's dusty and cobwebbed vault is because he wants attention. It's music, everyone copied or was heavily influenced by others before.

How is BSB not a ripoff of bands before it? New Kids on the Block came before them and a number of other bands before them. Stop being so jealous A.J.
