Then: Anybody that attended a school dance in 1994 is well aware of the pop quartet All-4-One. That was they year they released their cover of John Michael Montgomery's "I Swear." The song went absolutely nuclear. America was between boy bands at that moment: The New Kids On The Block had crapped out, and meeting the Backstreet Boys was a few years away. There was only Boyz II Men, and All-4-One were like a cheap knock-off. That's not meant to take anything away from All-4-One; it's just that Boyz II Men ruled the world at the time, and All-4-One just couldn't compete. In 1995 they scored again with "I Can Love You Like That," but soon enough Hanson and the Spice Girls entered our world. It was the beginning of a new teen-pop era, and All-4-One seemed like dinosaurs.

Now: You've got to give it up to All-4-One. They never broke up. They never even lost any of their original members. They have fewer than 1,500 Twitter followers, but they still tell their fanbase things like "Election night in America is looking like a tight race!" Who knew they were political? You can catch them November 1st in Yonsei University Amphitheater in Seoul, South Korea.
