Backstreet's back, all right?

Celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new album and world tour, the iconic boy band recently premiered their latest music video, "In a World Like This," on ABC's Good Morning America.

In addition to all five original BSB members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A.J. McLean, and Kevin Richardson — who still look great shirtless — the video features a scene in which a lesbian couple grasps hands while watching news footage from the first same-sex wedding performed in L.A. after Prop. 8 fell. 

“The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything,” said A.J, noting that the video explores three huge moments in U.S. history: the moon landing, 9/11 attacks, and marriage equality. “Marriage equality is an ongoing issue for years. BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married."

It might be their gayest video since their "Harlem Shake."
