Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block have revived their music careers with successful North American tours, and a European leg on the horizon. But there’s one more boy band plotting a comeback.
2gether - the fake MTV group behind hits like “U + Me = Us (Calculus)” and “The Hardest Part of Breaking Up Is Getting Back Your Stuff” - is hoping to reunite.
The group’s resident “bad boy,” Alex Solowitz, told TMZ that the band has discussed filming a parody documentary, which would capture the band's reunion, as well as a new tune.
On November 9, Solowitz posted to Facebook: “All right peeps, I'm going to need everybody's help far and wide. If you guys want this show to happen it’s going to take a mass group effort. Break out you [sic] old 2gether albums … TELL EVERYONE!!!! We're back.!!!!!!!”
And it seems all the guys are in.
The band heartthrob, Evan Farmer, who currently hosts “CMT’s Top 20 Countdown,” tweeted, “I'm on board!”
Sadly, Michael Cuccione, who played Jason 'Q.T.' McKnight, passed away in 2001 after a long battle with cancer. He was 16 years old.
TMZ reports that 2gether will donate a large sum of their proceeds to his foundation - The Michael Cuccione Foundation for Cancer Research.
Now it looks like the ball is in MTV’s court:
“Think it's time to go knocking on MTV's door,” Solowitz posted to Facebook on Monday. “Let’s see what happens? I really want to thank everyone. This has taken a huge group effort so keep on doin’ it! The more people we get the harder it is for them to turn us down.”
Would you like to see a 2gether reunion? Or are you having trouble recalling the spoof boy band? Perhaps this video will jog your memory:
