In an age where impromptu-choreographed dance routines thrived and movie soundtracks were, uh, rad, the music industry became saturated with earworm-y singles from artists that, for whatever reason, never took off. Disney, too, was churning out potential pop stars left and right. They came at a time when the album and the stores they were sold in (Sam Goody and F.Y.E.) were on the out and the single .mp3 was on the rise. Perhaps if the industry weren’t holding out hope that consumers would still buy full-blown CDs, their star would have burned just a little longer. But ‘lo, that was not the case, and nostalgia will hold them forever. Ahead, find out where some of the biggest names are now. We all might not remember the artists, but we definitely remember the songs that gave them their 15 minutes.
