New Kids on the Block will be hitting the road this May on their “Mixtape Tour” which features Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Astley and En Vogue. So, it’s only appropriate all four acts collaborate on a new song and a video that honors some of the most iconic videos of the 1980s.

Embedded below is “Bring Back the Time,” which was written by Donnie Wahlberg and Lars Jensen. While the video will get a ton of attention for all of the music videos it spoofs — from A Flock of Seagulls to Journey to Toni Basil —¬† the song should receive just as much attention, because it’s really¬†good!
