They wanted to come to our show," says Bloodhound Gang-banger Jimmy Pop about 'N Sync-sters Lance Bass and Joey Fatone showing up for a BHG concert in Atlanta. The pair of teen dreamboats even joined the Gang onstage for its version of the Sync's "Tearin' Up My Heart." "It was probably the craziest show I've seen all year," says Bass. "We hung out with them after the show and had a really fun time." Pop elaborates: "Before I knew it, it was five o'clock in the morning and we were drinking Jägermeister and Long Island iced teas like there was no tomorrow." Pop is a big fan. "They're proud, getting laid and making money," he says. "What else could you ask for?"

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
