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 :)
There used to be a lot more boy bands and most of them were quite popular with the fans--mostly due to the fact that the fans always had their favorite band member that they thought was the cutest one in the group.
