Put down your crimper, throw on your belly shirt and grab your Discman because the sound of the 1990s has come back to life and we want you to be prepared to hear it.

More than two decades since they all first slid on to the music scene with their frosted tips and coordinating distressed denim, members of famed boy band groups the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, 98 Degrees and O-Town have lent their vocal stylings to a brand new song. 

Titled "In The End," the track is a theme song for the upcoming film Dead 7, written by BSB's Nick Carter and starring Carter, 'N Sync's Joey Fatone, O-Town's Trevor Penick and Jacob Underwood and a handful of other former members of the four bands.

As for the track itself, it plays like an ode to a long lost era before Justin Timberlake was a dad, Fatone was starring in the sequel of My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Carter's little brother Aaron was singing about throwing a party behind his mom and dad's back.

With the pulsing beat, the pitch-perfect harmonies and catchy chorus, this tune is just as catchy as "Bye, Bye, Bye" and "I Want It That Way" combined.  

While members of 'N Sync and earlier boy band New Kids on the Block have gone on tour and recorded songs together in the past, this is the first time members of these four groups have collaborated on not only a song but also a film. While it was often speculated that the groups were rivals of each other, it seems nothing could be further from the truth. 

"I wanted my friends in the film with me," Carted previously told E! News. "What is more fun than riding horses and being zombies shooting things? Even as a kid I loved horror films, this was always something I wanted to do." 

The movie poster is intriguing, the song is already stuck in our heads and the cast is our childhood wrapped in a big red bow. With the film slated for release on April 1, we're just crossing our fingers that this is not one epic April Fool's joke!
