List Rules Teen pop acts from the 1990s to the 2000s that are no longer relevant.

What to say about the teen pop movement. Beginning in the late 1980s, the teen pop phase in music has always been an infectious, fun, and upbeat guilty pleasure. The songs stay in your head, though often times annoyingly, but as for the artists that made them? Every boy-band you can remember from the '90s have virtually disappeared. Justin Timberlake, of *NSYNC fame is probably the only former boy-bander that was able to find success well into his adult life. Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees is a regular on reality TV, but wasn't able to capitalize on his boy-band success since the group broke up. The Backstreet Boys are still together and working on material, but nobody cares. The women of that time fared much better. Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce (of Destiny's Child), and Pink all became megastars. Mandy Moore continues to make records, but has been more successful in other endeavors, as has Jessica Simpson. For the most part, however, the sub-genre produced a large number of here today, gone tomorrow type acts. Does anyone remember LFO with their hit "Summer Girls" in 1999? What ever happened to Willa Ford, teen pop's first "bad girl"? Where did S Club 7, the British pop group with a successful ABC Family show of the same name, ever go? Those names are foreign to a generation of Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus, but luckily (or unfortunately), someone has remembered these acts and more and we will vote on which act we remember and miss the most. Some of these acts you can say are underrated, and some of them you may never want to see again. Anyways, this list is for anyone with '90s nostalgia and shameless enough to vote!
