No matter what decade it is, the boy band recipe works on any generation of teenage girls. You see girls fall for the same formula over and over again, and music executives make tons of money out of them.
Boy bands were quite lame for a while from when The Backstreet Boys and Nsync disappeared up until One Direction was created. But they never last a lot, I hear One Direction is taking a "break" next year.
Why are all the boy bands now a days caucassion thin wavy haired young boys. I know that classification may not specify every single person in a boy band, but come on. let's have our black boy bands and our puerto rican boy bands up in the mix
I have been on a weird boy band kick lately. Maybe trying to recall my childhood? LOL I created a station on Pandora that plays Backstreet Boys, Nsync, 5ive, Hanson, and any other "boy band" types I could think up. Even Brittany Spears has popped in the mix now and then. It has been a fun station to get me productive for cleaning.
Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and NKOTB were my favorite boy bands and of course I had my favorite guy from each band. From BSB is was Nick Carter, NSYNC was Justin Timberlake and NKOTB was Donnie Wahlberg :)
