If there's one thing the Gen-X and Millennial crew loves, it's revelling in '80s and '90s nostalgia. Which is super easy to do when when artists release works that harken back to those good ol' days.

With the music video for their new single, "Bring Back the Time", they certainly brought back a lot of memories for those of us who were around back in 1989.

The song is STACKED with familiar faves.

You're telling me that Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Astley, and En Vogue took part in this song and music video? Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

And it takes that '80s/'90s vibe to a whole new level.

The music video makes so many references to videos of the time, like Madonna's "Vogue", and "Whip It" by Devo. See how many you can recognize.

All in all, it's pure fun.

It's probably exactly what we needed in 2022, even though the sound is totally retro. Who cares, though? A bop is a bop.

But honestly, that's part of the fun.

Or, most of the fun, really. Even as trends rise and fall, there's always going to be room to kick it back old school.

It really has something for everyone.

Even if you weren't around back in '89, or you were too young to actually remember that year, this sound feels pretty universal.

There's no age limit for good music, after all.

It's amazing how New Kids on the Block can make a song that draws up so many memories, and yet feels new at the same time.

"Bring Back the Time" comes out ahead of their upcoming tour.

That's right. In case you didn't already know, the group is going on their Mixtape Tour 2022 this year!

And if this song is any indication of what's to come...
