Don't play: You still jam out to Hoku from time to time.

We need to have a serious conversation about the B-List pop stars of the late ’90s and early ’00s. When it comes to Y2K bubblegum music, we know Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC reigned supreme. However, what about the sugary acts who almost reached the success of these titans? Where do they rank alongside the A-List heavy-hitters? Let’s find out.

It was a daunting task, but we sifted through all the tightly choreographed videos, obnoxiously catchy choruses and matching costumes that dominated the millennial pop scope and ranked the 10 best acts. Before you freak out, we should disclose what acts we also considered to be A-List (and, therefore, not eligible for this competition): Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, LFO, 98 Degrees, Aaron Carter and S Club 7. While not as white-hot as the four supernova A-Listers, we felt these five acts had enough success to join the club. We also didn’t consider artists that emerged after 2002 like Hilary Duff and Avril Lavigne because we felt they were indicative of another generation.

So, without further ado, here are the best of the (almost) best Y2K pop acts:
