Am I being dramatic when I say that I would cease to exist without boy bands? Yes, probably, but you need to understand how personally relevant they are to me and how socially irrelevant they are to a majority of the population in 2013.
In honor of me going to a Backstreet Boys concert tonight, I thought it’d be more than appropriate to share some ridiculous photos of boy bands from over the years. Any idea can be turned into a photo-shoot for a boy band: puppies, tin foil, mac and cheese, absolutely anything. These photos will leave you asking “who hated them that much?”
The prime of the boy band was the 90’s, but that’s not to say our hearts are done throbbing over Justin Timberlake, Nick Carter, and Nick Lachey.
Boy bands are made to make us giggle and swoon at the same time. With matching color-coordinated outfits and choreographed dance moves, it’s actually ridiculous. So perfectly ridiculous. And let’s be honest, we all love a man who can really dance.
Sidenote: I would just like to remind everyone that The Beatles are indeed a boy band. One of the first!
Boy bands featured (in order): Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, BBMak, New Edition, Lyte Funkie Ones, O-Town, Jonas Brothers, Big Time Rush, One Direction, The Beatles.
