Every 90s kid dream is finally coming true. In 2016, no one has to fight which boyband has a better song as members of the Backstreet Boys, ‘NSync, 98 Degrees and O-Town collaborate on a song.
The once-famous singers’ new song is titled “In the End” and is in conjunction with their new SyFy movie, “Dead 7.”
US Weekly reports that the pop power ballad features the killer talents of ‘NSync’s Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick; the Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean, Nick Carter and Howie Dorough; 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons and O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada.

Rolling Stone writes that “Dead 7” is a futuristic zombie Western movie that features mostly of the Nineties and early millennium boy-band stars that the millennials have grown up to love.
In an exclusive clip from the film, a narrator explains the premise and introduces the main characters.
The trailer also explains the mysterious epidemic that ravages the world and leaves the undead in charge, A.K.A. the zombie apocalypse.
The video then introduces Apocalypta, the ruler of this “Mad Max”-like hellscape who gives survivors a choice: “Become cattle for the army of the dead … or become warriors and fight against the growing darkness.”
During an interview with the website, McLean revealed his hopes that the film could gain the same level of notoriety as another SyFy feature, Sharknado.
“Movies like this can turn into cult phenomenons, and that’s what Sharknado happened to be,” he said. “I watched it, I’m like ‘OK, this is ridiculous, but I’m still watching it and I think it’s awesome.'”
Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter wrote the film and plays its gunfighter protagonist, Jack. He’s joined by his bandmates Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean, N’ Sync’s Joey Fatone (as “Whiskey Joe”) and Chris Kirkpatrick, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons and O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada.
