Some secrets will follow you to the grave. Others, get unleashed as the years pass by. It happens to everyone, especially if you're the Backstreet Boys, who have been keeping one of their darkest secrets for more than 15 years until now.
The beloved '90s boy band is making headlines for recently celebrating 20 years since the debut of their second studio album Backstreet's Back. Hits such as As Long As You Love Me, Everybody, and All I Have To Give, live in this album.
In honor of their big day, officially on August 11, the boys have revealed one of their biggest kept secrets. BSB fans everywhere, brace yourselves.
Turns out that there's a fart hidden in one of their songs and no one ever noticed!
In an interview with Billboard, A.J. McLean fessed up. "So when we were in the studio with Max making the song 'The Call,' Howie [Dorough] was in the booth and we were doing that vocal break down, [sings] 'dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun.' Max gave Howie his harmony, and I think he was just putting so much air into the vocal that as he was singing, he went 'dun, dun' and he farted—but he farted not only on the beat but in key. So Max tweaked it and made it sound like one of his patented bass sounds, and it stayed on the record."
The Call, for those non-hardcore BSB fans out there, is actually the second single off their 2000 album Black & Blue.
"Howie’s fart became an instrument and is on the record for the rest of our lives," McLean added. "[Max] could turn a fart into a bass sound, that's pretty damn genius if you ask me."
And again, for the non-BSB fans, this is the culprit.
