We can put this down to the perverse side of human nature that suddenly decides it prefers Pepsi to Coke or 'Miami 7' to 'LA 7'. They are wrong. *N Sync may have been first off the boy band blocks (very big in Germany since 1972 apparently) but it's how you play the game, run the race, every loser wins, or whatever.
