This a decade that brought us Britpop, grunge, superstar DJs – and a whole lot of terrible boy bands.
Boy bands ruled the music industry from the late ’80s all the way to the early ’00s, selling millions of records and touring stadiums across the world. Then pop-punk took over, soon bowing to hip-hop and the ladies of pop who rule today. As the boy band era ended, Nick Lachey signed a reality TV deal, Justin Timberlake moved into acting gig, and most band members waited in their turns, ready to jump on a comeback whenever opportunity knocked them.
But in the last few years, with bands like the Jonas Brothers and One Direction taking center stage, we’ve seen a resurgence of boy band love.
With the recent resurgence of boy bands both new and old, we’re bringing you back our favorite boy bands of the ’90s, the decade where those sweet, sweet harmonies (and even sweeter dance moves) all really started.
