8 Forgotten Music Acts That Only a True ’00s Kid Would Remember

By  | 

While we’re all about the girl groups and boy bands of today — oh yeah, Little Mix & One Direction! — we can’t help but reminisce over the forgotten mixed music acts from the mid-’90s/early ’00s; as in co-ed groups. Do any exist now? Eh, not really. To remind you of some of the best, here are eight that only a true child of the ’90s/’00s would remember:

S Club 7 (1998–2002)
MOST KNOWN FOR: “I’ve Never Had a Dream Come True”
Sure, there’s an S Club 3 around somewhere, but it’s not the same.

Scene 23 (2001–2002)
MOST KNOWN FOR: “He Said, She Said”
Eden’s Crush came from Popstars; Scene 23 came from Popstars 2 — the time of great music reality TV shows.

MOST KNOWN FOR: “Upside Down”
THE ABBA tribute band.
