Fun Facts

The term "boy band" was coined in the late 1980s and gained popularity in the 90s with the rise of groups such as the Backstreet Boys, Hanson and New Kids on the Block. These bands were known for their sugary lyrics dedicated to the girls they loved, heavy hair gel use and frosted tips.

Boy bands have evolved to match the modern day music scene. The formation of One Direction marked a new generation of boy bands. While they retain the same pop styling and penchant for love songs, the newer boy bands seem to value musical ability and each member's unique identity over sensational group performances.
