Today is April 30. That means tomorrow, "It's Gonna Be May."

And *NSYNC will never let Justin Timberlake forget it.

To those who don't have that song stuck in their heads yet, allow us to educate you on the evolution of those infamous memes of Timberlake.

Back in Timberlake's boy band days, a meme was born from *NSYNC's song "It's Going To Be Me," from their "No Strings Attached" album. The pop sensation added some flair to the 2000 hit when he sang "me" as "mayyy."

Now every April 30, fans brush off their curly-haired JT memes to remind the world of "It's Gonna Be May Day," and the internet has never been the same since.

The official *NSYNC Twitter account teased the occasion Thursday with a tweet that said, "One more day and..."

Since the trend began, even Timberake's bandmates have shared memes on social media.

Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone have both shared nods to "It's Gonna Be May Day" on their social media pages. Lance Bass appeared on "Good Morning America" to celebrate the "holiday" last year.

The only *NSYNC member who hasn't seemed to join in on the trend — on social media, at least — is JC Chasez.

"We tease each other daily on our group text, but today is definitely one of our favorite holidays," Bass told GMA.

Last year, Bass also shared a meme on his Instagram that he had never seen before — a dog with ramen noodles on its head, meant to make fun of the bright blonde curls Timberlake once had.

"I'm so sorry, Justin," Bass said.

The good news is that it looks like Timberlake has a sense of humor.

In the past, he's shared a clip from the music video that cuts off just before the iconic lyric, leaving true fans to fill in the blanks.

"YOU ALREADY KNOW," he wrote.

It's gonna be...fun? It's gonna be...now? It's gonna be...?
