But the artists we're most excited about has to be the Backstreet Boys.

And if you're wondering why the hell the Backstreet Boys want to celebrate Montreal's birthday, it's because they kinda got their start here.

In 1995, a radio host on Mix 96 heard the Backstreet Boys song We’ve Got It Goin’ On, which was only playing in Europe and he decided to play it on the air. Later he also played the song Get Down. The songs were so well received that it essentially launched the Backstreet Boys’ career in North America.
