The Backstreet Boys drove us all insane with their 1999 hit single “I Want It That Way,” and now they’ve got new music on the way. We’re here for it.
2. Boyz II MenSource:Getty
This group of smooth brothers took our breath away with classic songs like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love To You,” and “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.” They were truly an R&B force to be reckoned with in the early ’90s.
3. New Kids on the BlockSource:Getty
These cool cats were all about the ladies and we don’t blame ’em. With their hits “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” “Please Don’t Go Girl,” and more, New Kids on the Block made its mark on the late ’80s-early ’90s.
4. New EditionSource:Getty
Let’s not forget about the men who brought us “Candy Girl.” New Edition hit their peak in the ’80s, but were so good they still get radio play today. We also love them for a few other hits, including “Mr. Telephone Man” and “Can You Stand The Rain?”
5. The Jackson 5Source:Getty
We can’t talk about boy bands and not mention this historical bunch. Starting in the ’70s, Michael Jackson and his brothers brought us hit after hit, including tracks like “ABC,” “I’ll Be There,” and “Blame It On The Boogie.” Of course, Mike would eventually have his own solo career, but this is where it all began.
N’Sync is a late ’90s-Early ’00s boy band to remember. With hits like “Bye Bye Bye” and “I Want You Back,” Justin Timberlake and his boys rocked our world.
7. The Jonas BrothersSource:Getty
A more recent boy band, these brothers had the looks and the zest it takes to make it. Hitting us with songs like “Burnin’ Up,” “When You Look Me In The Eyes,” and more, the Jonas Brothers definitely did their thing.
8. One DirectionSource:Getty
Oh hey, One Directioners. Zayn would eventually leave, but it doesn’t take away from the magic these young guys made in recent years. We’ll always love “What Makes You Beautiful” and their 2013 cut “Story Of My Life.”
There’s no listing all of the hit songs 112 brought us, but to name a few: “Peaches & Cream,” “Only You,” “Anywhere,” and “Dance With Me.” And who didn’t love Slim?
B2K ran into some well-documented trouble during their early ’00s boy band journey. Still, they are loved and recognized for several hits, including “Bump Bump Bump,” “Badaboom,” and more.
11. 98 DegreesSource:Getty
Finally, 98 Degrees, another one of our favorite boy bands. No one could resist singing along to “I Do” or “Because of You” in the late ’90s. They were on to something.
