After several attempts to revive their glory days as one of the hottest boy bands, the Backstreet Boys are back, alright?  And now they’ve done their own riff on the ‘Harlem Shake’, the viral dance craze set to a techno track by DJ Baauer that has taken YouTube by storm in the last month.

The 90s boy band recently released their video rendition of the Harlem Shake, which features a bunny costume, Nick Carter in his underwear, AJ McLean adorning a Spiderman costume, and even a tutu, Entertainment Weekly reported.

All five founding members – BSB has been a quartet since 2006 when Kevin Richardson left to start a family – added some group choreography, which Mashable suggested was to prove that the Boys still have it.  Although, maybe the video is preparation for their fifth comeback tour since they released their album “Never Gone” – but who’s keeping track, right?

The Backstreet Boys are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new album available April 20th and a “Fan Celebration” in Hollywood, Calif.  Two days later, they’ll be inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and at the end of May, BSB will kick off another world tour.

"BSB has been a quartet since 2006 when Kevin Richardson left to start a family" .... but Kevin came back last year, not just for this video, and they are officially a quintet again.

Not sure the April release of an album is accurate. I think it's supposed to be this summer.

"maybe the video is preparation for their fifthcomeback tour since they released their album 'Never Gone'" ... this confuses me... They did a tour for Never Gone (with Kev), then for Unbreakable, This Is Us, and NKOTBSB (without Kev), and yes they are preparing for a tour, but not sure how that translates into a "fifth comeback tour" ?????
