New Edition have reunited a few times over since their Eighties heyday. In 1996, the group got back together for the album Home Again, and more recently in 2004 for One Love. In the time since, they have periodically reunited for one-off events such as performing a medley of Jackson 5 hits on the BET Awards in 2009.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
