Is One Direction copying the Backstreet Boys’ style — and their titles?

In the 1990’s, boy-band feuds were a dime a dozen — back when TRL was filled with screaming girls who wanted nothing more than to be serenaded by the likes of ‘N Sync, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees. But today, TRL is no more, and boy bands aren’t nearly the fad they used to be.

That hasn’t stopped the multiplatinum U.K. X Factor breakouts One Direction from making a whole new generation of young girls scream at ear-piercing volumes. But is One Direction borrowing a little too blatantly from the still-active Backstreet Boys?
