Backstreet Boys =-)
Totally, ariedana, Take That have hands down the best band story, IMO! Even if you weren't attached to their first go round (I wasn't either). Their post reunion albums are so enjoyable and their shows…love!
@ariedana What the what?! 5ive are getting back together?! Goes off to Google Land…!
I never heard of them when they were actually a boyband, but now that they're a manband I am a huge Take That fan. They also have one of the best band stories of all time.
I also really love 5ive and can't wait for them to get back together next year.
@misspeg pleasure, I take my boybands seriously! Great songs.
Lynrd Skynrd and Led Zeppelin, except they were Man Bands.
@Sarah Thanks for coming forward haha glad I'm not the only one! I liked Blue (Fly By) and Another Level (Freak Me) too. Some of my favourite songs!
Hey, I'm old.
Duran Duran! LOVED THEM! Had all of the buttons, my locker door was covered with their pictures. Going through some stuff recently I found those buttons. Good times!
@misspeg I have a soft spot for 5ive (Jay!), and Westlife (Nicky!), plus Blue (Lee!), and Another Level (Bobak!) but I don't think any of them were popular outside of Europe.
What the what?! Not one of you guys mentioned 5ive?! Oh god, I loved Scott so much (the one with spiky hair). I remember how much I wanted to be his gf when I was in high school *hangs head in shame*
I also liked BSB, N'Sync, 98 Degrees (Invisible Man *swoon*) and Westlife (how come no-one mentioned them as well?).
Nice to see some love for the "Prefab Four" aka The Monkees!
They were a boy band definitely, but they became much more. Went from being assigned instruments to play onscreen, to actually playing them. So many of their songs were incredible. Echo & The Bunnymen, their hit "Do It Clean" sounds an awful lot like The Monkees' "Stepping Stone." I'm not complaining, though… I love both!
Allteration is why. Boy bands and girl groups. It is silly that they can be called a band when none of them play the instruments.
no. and i don't get why they are called bands, when no one plays any instruments.
Jeez where do I start?
I loved Wham!, but thought Andrew Ridgley was cuter than George (what did I know, I was 14).We all know that DD were not technically a boy band but were there any boy bands in the early to mid 80's? New Edition, I guess. They were just not as mature and Brittish as DD. Sorry ladies, Simon is mine. Get in line.
"Never trust a big butt and a smile"- words to live by
Okay, Duran Duran were not, and never will be,m a "boy band" you guys. Love them, but no.I loved BSB and I was an adult in my twenties, lol. I never got on the NSCYNC train though. I was not into boy bands when I was young. Just Wham!. I really don't think they were considered a boy band either. George Michael was the man I was going to marry. *sigh*
Motley Crüe. They kinda qualified, since Tommy was 17 when they started out. Otherwise, the closest thing I've got is Duran Duran.
bsb…. "as long as you love me" is a guilty pleasure
@jax my younger self is envious! You could have sold your story – everyone thought he was gay then
@g. strathmore – ABC, BBD, the east coast family…that girl is poi-sonnnnnn
Oh, Hell yeah to the Bay City Rollers! My very first concert, at age 14! Right before they came here, Ian left, so I went to one of the first concerts with Patrick. Got to kiss Woody before I got tossed off the stage.
Duran Duran for me, too! I still hope to one day become the second Mrs. Simon John Charles LeBon.
Add me to the D2 crowd. I've seen them a few times, but the best was at First Avenue. I went by myself, so I was hanging out with a group of girls, and one of them had screwed Nick in the bathroom during their previous arena tour, lol.

Dunno if they are "boy bands" like what we consider today. But I had their albums and enjoyed them…..
Started with NKOTB, then Hanson, BSB, NSync… Yah I was a boy band fiend in my teens and pre-teen years!
Duran Duran. Almost got to see them this summer, but the concert was cancelled due to health issues.
jackson 5/Jacksons (still like a lot of their music) and Bon Jovi (not so much anymore, what can I say, I was an impressionable teen…)
@flirtychick74I STILL say" Ima hungry muchacho, Ima hungry". Do you know what I'm talking about, or do I just sound crazy? Menudo, baby
Bay City Rollers then THE Osmond brothers,
Boyz 2 Men for me…
Oh, Boyz 2 Men.. still makes me swoon
depeche mode…lol they started out really teeny bop synth pop
The Beatles, those lovable mop tops!
Before my time but I love them.
Oh wait, do the Monkees count, because they started out manufactured? If so, they'd be my first, but….nah…
And rock bands aren't boy bands even if they are all guys, you cheaters! 😛 And neither are emo bands even though they do kind of feel cheesy, esp when pretty,and I am def a bit embarrassed to admit it when I like them…
Never. Unless you consider CSN&Y a boy band…
The one redeeming feature of "Rock of Ages": when Julianne Hough tells the young man how crappy her life has been since they broke up, and, he tells her "I'm in a boy band", and she replies: "You win".
INXS was a boy band?? …. Loved Michael Hutchence tho…I had a door- sized poster of him and bought some docs since he wore them…rip michael…
Oh and Five!
Backstreet Boys! I also remember going to see 98degrees at a shopping centre and Nick Lachey actually touched my hand and I thought that was the coolest.
oh Sarah…i got a "snog" from Matt when I met him in 1990. They weren't very big out here but my brother lived in London and would send me the UK magazines.
And yes, I do follow Matt Goss on twitter..lol.
Duran Duran when I was really young and the NKOTB. I'm 37. 🙂
Boyz 2 Men!!!
Not a single. fucking. one.
@jsierra love that song, and the JLH Girl on TV. Very sad when Rich died
@karrots all kinds of jealous, although I do hope it wasn't with my future husband
