Joey Fatone & Lance Bass Are Still Ashamed of These *NSYNC Songs

*NSYNC produced some of the best boy band jams of all time, and some songs that even the members were embarrassed about. On December 12, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone released *NSYNC songs that still make them cringe more than two decades later.

In an interview with People at the Bilt Rewards 2023 Winter Holiday Party in New York, Fatone expressed his disapproval of the significant cuts to "Riddle," "I Need Love" and "Here We" from his 1997 self-titled debut album. Go" regrets. Bass agreed. "Those are kind of wrong..." he added. "We like the rest. It's not our style. We're not a technical group."

Fatone went on to explain that the band made these 90s techno-style songs to satisfy the European market. "It was basically European dance music at the time, and obviously the crux of the matter was in America," he said. "We tried to do what we liked in our atmosphere, but they wanted to do more dancing."

In fact, one of the songs, "Riddle," was so inspired by European pop that it didn't even appear on the American version of the album.

More new*NSYNC music

Needless to say, if *NSYNC went on a reunion tour, these three songs would not be on the setlist. However, it's unclear if they will reunite for more music, let alone a full tour.

The band recently reunited to write a new song for Justin Timberlake's film Trollz: Band Together , which also featured Fatone, Bass, JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick voicing the boy band members. The five-piece have reunited multiple times to promote the single, but there's been no sign of anything more to come.

Bass told People magazine that "in a perfect world," new music "would be great," but Fatone was more cautious. "Everyone has to have time in the studio," he said.

"We spent a minute singing the Trolls song. Everyone has their own lives now. A lot of people are getting married and having kids. We want to do it, but it needs to integrate all of that in Together."
