Many boy bands have come and gone, but a lot of them left a mark on our hearts, our minds, the margins of our notebooks during study hall, and, of course, the VMAs.

There’s no doubt this year’s only headlining boy band, 5 Seconds Of Summer, will do the same — just don’t call them a boy band, OK?

From memorable performances to questionable red carpet attire, these pop groups have consistently stood out above the rest of their peers — though unfortunately, not always for the right reasons. I’m looking at you, Justin Timberlake’s turtleneck. And ramen curls.

Before the 2014 VMAs kick off on Sunday, let’s take a trip down memory lane with a look back at some of the best boy band moments in VMA history.
