February 1999


This month was dominated by the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync (no surprise there). However, near the end of the month, about the time I started my log, "Freak on a Leash," by Korn, was beginning to break the constancy of the boy bands at the number 1 and 2 spots. (FINALLY!) This was a very exciting time in my early TRL career.
