1992 Edition: Boy Bands and Powerhouse Ladies

 1992 was a year that saw the rise of the first big boy band of the decade in Boys II Men, who topped the charts in the US with End of the Road. 
Meanwhile, Sir Mixalot released Baby Got Back, which would become the cause of so much awkward white people dancing in the years and decades to come. Speaking of, one hit wonder Irish rap group House of Pain also gave us Jump Around this year. 
Angry teenagers continued to mosh to Nirvana and Metallica, while the world of kareoke would never be the same after Whitney sang I Will Always Love You. 
A year of extremes from heavily-produced rnb to garage rock bands, a contrast which would become definitive of the decade itself.
