I think N'Sync deserve to be inducted. They still hold the record for most first week sales of an album for "No Strings Attached." I believe that if they make a comeback in the next few years that this will cement them as shoe-ins. They definately had a huge impact on a lot of people.

N'Sync did indeed sell millions of records, but they have next to no credibility in the rock critic establishment. No chance.

in order to be in the rock hall of fame you have to be rock and roll. great to see millions of 12 year old teenie boppers bought their record in the first week. sit and think about it. theyre a bunch of queers that lasted just a couple of years. never will they be in the hall

If you have to be rock and roll to be in the rock hall of fame, then why are there non-rock artists listed? They wouldn't list them if they hadn't made an impact of some sort on the culture of music in general.
And seeing as how you've all posted here, you've obviously been affected by them, too. Whether it's positive or negative, you can't deny the fact that when you saw their name on the list, you felt compelled enough to post a comment and vote.
I think that says a lot. Just because you don't like their music doesn't mean they aren't as deserving as some metal band. Their influence, record sales, and contribution to music as a whole during a certain period of time rings loud and clear. They led an entire generation for a period of time, and created a culture of positivity.
I think that in itself is enough for them to at least be considered for a hall of fame nomination.

ROCK AND ROLL. not hip hop

Absolutely yes! Although they have sales records to their fame, the real reason for their induction is simple. Their sound. Noone... NO ONE... has such tight harmonies. Their blend is unchallenged. They were the best in the business for their showmanship and artistry in sound as well as on stage. Ask anyone who's worked with them... *NSYNC was/is incredibly talented.

If getting millions of prepubescent girls (and probably not a few boys) to scream is a qualification for the Hall, 'Nsync and the Backstreet Boys (and Britney Spears) are guaranteed induction.

Would someone please check for me? I don't have the heart to check myself and risk finding that it actually is a bona-fide requirement.

Uh...no!!! Panty-chucking might be an Olympic event now, though!!

The idea of nysnc in the RNRHOF makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

Posted by Tom on Friday, 07.18.08 @ 19:33pm


ok...no. yes the sold records. yes they had 13 year old girls everywhere in love but we have to face facts... they were nothing but another backstreet boy copy cat attempt. they were more successful than other clones but still a copy none the less. they didn't last just like the rest. their unexplained popularity and slightly annoying music gave boy bands like backstreet boys and nkotb a bad name. don't get me wrong i have nothing against them individually... jc is a fabulous song writer and like him or not justin timberlake has done some great things in the industry. i'd actually consider inducting justin before nsync.

NO,NO,NO,NO,NO
AND 1000x NO

"ok...no. yes the sold records." I presume you mean "they", and sales doesn't guarantee you a spot.

"yes they had 13 year old girls everywhere in love" Just like the Backstreet Boys, ironically enough.

"but we have to face facts... they were nothing but another backstreet boy copy cat attempt." Weren't they both formed by Lou Pearlman, who in turn was copying Maurice Starr, so BSB is also a copy cat attempt.

"Their sound. Noone... NO ONE... has such tight harmonies."

*Don't try and translate that if you're dyslexic

"Their blend is unchallenged."

They were just another boy band. Artificial, designed by some suits for the masses and for some people to get rich. Lou Pearlman had already caught lightning in a bottle with The Backstreet Boys, so why not try it again? It worked. Again. He himself was just copying a business model that had done way earlier (some say done better as well, but that's at least subjective).

Say what? Sales, you've got it. Influence and contribution to music... I think you might have them confused with someone else. I'm not a hater by the way, just trying to keep things in perspective.

Ofcourse NSYNC should be inducted..They are the best group this world ever have seen..Im from South africa and they are way way better than any other group..They took Pop music to another level they are more talented than other groups i mean theyre harmonies are the best...You haters are pathetic metal heads so shut up..They are the best ever please inducted them..

Posted by Brenden on Sunday, 12.5.10 @ 14:34pm


Wow, South Africa must be getting some pretty shit music.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 12.5.10 @ 15:40pm


@GFW you cant believe NSYNC fans all over the world? u patthetic piece of crap...WHY IS PEOPLE DISS BOYBANDS?WHEN THERE ARE CRAPPY ROCK BANDS LIKE GREEN DAY AND KINGS OF LEO AND THOSE CRAPPY ROCK BANDS..NSYNC ARE THE ONLY BOYBAND THAT TOOK POP MUSIC TO ANOTHER LEVEL THEY EVEN PLAYED ON BET...NSYNC IS THE ONLY BOYBAND WITH PURE TALENT..

Posted by Brenden on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 04:38am


Brenden, you shouldn't have said what you said about Green Day. Brittany will be by soon to open a can of whup ass on you ;-)

Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 06:27am




"You haters are pathetic metal heads so shut up"

Yes and no.

"They took Pop music to another level"

What do you mean?

"WHY IS PEOPLE DISS BOYBANDS?"

Because they're prefabricated. Made by suits and controlled by suits in order to get rich. There's no changing music here, just a highly succesful business venture. Justin Timberlake turned out some alright stuff on his own though.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 12.12.10 @ 07:04am


I would choose NSYNC over any rock band..NSYNC ARE FIVE BRILLIANT SINGERS THEY CAN OUT SING ANY CRAPPY ROCK BAND..NSYNC SONGS ARE MORE MEANINGFULL AND SOPHISTICATED..NSYNC ISNT YOUR EVERAGE BOYBAND THEY ARENT LIKE BSB..BSB ARE A KARAOKE GROUP THATS PATHETIC..NSYNC HAVE REAL POP MUSIC AND THEY CAN SING ANY MUSIC GENRE THATS HOW BRILLIANT THEY ARE..NSYNC ARE A 5PART HARMONY GROUP

Posted by Brenden on Sunday, 12.12.10 @ 09:13am


Woahh... Brenden is one schizophrenic maniac. Harmonys arent that amazing and if NSYNC can sing any genre well then I have a challenge for you. Find some NSYNC acapellas, shouldn't be too hard, and try it. Set it to Beethoven, Dead Kennedys, Bob Marley and Massive attack. Bet it dosen't work. Prove me wrong fgt.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 12.12.10 @ 15:23pm


"BSB ARE A KARAOKE GROUP"

Then why wouldn't N'Sync be one?

Posted by Sam on Friday, 12.17.10 @ 10:13am


Becuase NSYNC ARE DIFFERENT FROM BSB..NSYNC ARE MORE TO DO WITH THEIR VOCALS AND HARMONIES THATS WHAT SEPARATES NSYNC FROM BSB..NSYNC WERE MORE A HARMONIZING GROUP....NSYNC HAVE MORE MEANINGFULL SONGS AND ARE GREAT SINGERS..WHY ARE U STUPID PEOPLE HATING ON BOYBANDS?WHY WHY WHY IF U DONT LIKE BOYBANDS ITS YOUR PROBLEM..

Posted by Brenden on Friday, 12.17.10 @ 11:53am


Brenden this works two ways.

WHY IS U STUPID PERSON HATING ON ROCK MUSIC? WHY WHY WHY IF U DONT LIKE GOOD MUSIC ITS YOUR PROBLEM

Posted by GFW on Friday, 12.17.10 @ 12:36pm


Justin Timberlake has a better chance of getting inducted than NSync according to this website

Posted by rdall on Tuesday, 11.1.11 @ 23:56pm


They had a HUGE infuence on a whole generation of teens and kids... You can still hear their influence in modern teen pop, and they spawned Justin Timberlake... Yes *N'Sync deserves to be included in the hall of fame... Along with the Backstreet Boys.

Posted by Micheal on Sunday, 05.11.14 @ 18:28pm


There are dozens of non rock&roll artists in the hall, and *//\\//sync can, should and will be inducted. They absolutely deserve it they are the greatest vocal band of all time. They are NOT "just some queers that lasted a few years". You make fun of them yet they're more talented vocally than even the beatles, as well as the monkees and BSB. *NSYNC were undoubtedly all around phenomenal. Someone like the Beatles are HUGE and more successful than *NSYNC but not more talented. Beatles weren't vocally capable singers, NSYNC was and still are. Talent trumps success, just look at one direction. They're HUGE but we all know they're trash. That's not the case with *Nsync and BSB. NSYNC deserve it just as much as beastie boys, Run Dmc, michael Jackson and countless others. They lead an entire generation and hold the record for not one but two albums (NSA/Celebrity) for first day and first week sales. Their tours did amazingly well and they were always the main event at award shows even when they just came out. Nowadays it's chris brown who everyone looks forward to perform. BSB used to be considered like the second coming of the Beatles (so was *Nsync), thing is they both started over seas in Germany where BSB had multiple albums out and they were HUGE. NSYNC comes along with only two singles (I want you back/tearin up my heart) and they're the biggest act over there in multiple countries with only two songs. Back then, that meant something because in those days almost ever artist were considered amazing talent unlike today. NSYNC are and always will be AMAZINGLY. They'll be inducted in no time and I can't wait.

Dumbasses saying "harmonies don't matter" hah! You don't know singing. The majority of rock lead singers as well as the guitarists that song backup suck ass. They have no singing capability and rock for the most part is just yelling into the mic. Same with rap, it's just talking and yelling (ex: meek mills). *NSYNC were one of the , if not the best live performers of all time. Michael Jackson lip synced almost 100% of the time while on tour and especially his super bowl half time shows and Vma performances. So again, just because you really popular and successful, does NOT make you more talented than someone who's less successful. Examples are someone like Justin bieber, Austin mahone and Cody Simpson of today who are huge but can't sing to save their lives and then back in the early 2,000's it was usher, craig David, and Justin timberlake who were the real talent who deserve to be inducted. And especially *Nsync. Jc Chasez is one of the greatest male vocalists I have EVER heard in my entire life. John Lennon and Elvis can't out sing jc and Freddie Mercury. He's much more popular for sure but not a better singer. People talk about boyband being gay queers yet you mean to tell me that wearing makeup, having long hair like a woman, sometimes cross dressing and wearing tight cli thing is manly!? Hah! Who ever says that is a fag and doesn't have a clue on what it means to be a man. Rock bands are just as corny, whack, tacky, cheesy, "queer". So please tell me how rock bands are "cool" but boy bands aren't. Also any and every rock band is just as much "not deserving to be inducted" as any boyband. Anyone and everyone can be surpassed. Michael Jordan > Kobe > lebron, Frank Sinatra > Elvis > michael Jackson > usher > craig David > Justin timberlake, arethra Franklin > Whitney Houston > Celine Dion > Christina Aguilar & Beyonce and so on. *NSYNC lead and started a generation of music and that influence is still heard today.
