Do you remember the time when there were dozens of boybands around? They are group singers who don't play instruments, just dance and they're really cute too - they were quite a lot in the 90s. Like A1, 98 Degrees, Blue, Backstreetboys, NSYNC, Boyzone...My favorite is Westlife, I just love all of their songs and I even memorize them until now.. It would be nice if they still made more songs these days.. they're still a bit famous.

My favorite boy band is Backstreet boys and Nsync. I'm big fan and I used to collect their albums and their pictures when I was in high school. They are so talented, they can sing and dance and even play instruments and compose music.

I remember my high school days every time I hear the word boyband. One of my favorite boyband is NSYNC, I bought 3 of their albums. The first one is self titled album NSYNC, then No Strings Attached and lastly Celebrity. These guys are so talented. Backstreetboys is one of my favorites as well, I love the way they harmonize, their songs are really heart felt. I still have their songs saved on my player.

Hi lady! This brings back memories of high school...^^ My favorite was Backstreetboys! I was really a fan then. I really loved their songs and their dances. If I remember it right, it was their song Get Down that we danced in one of our programs back in high school.^^ I remember me and my friends used to sing their songs during our vacant period when we were passing time in the school grounds. As long as you love me baby... Ah.. those were the days... of cheesy and corny things. ^^ And even BSB started losing popularity, I still wait for their releases. I liked their songs still when they started to mature. When they were reunited I was happy.^^ I guess until now, I'm still a fan. ?

Haha, I love Get Down- it's quite addicting, even though they were just repeating the lyrics, it was pretty fun. Yeah, even though some songs were cheesy, I still love them becasue their voices were so nice.

Oh yeah. Still have my Backstreet boys and nsync. I did grow up in the era of the one that was my first favorite though.. I was a New Kids on the Block fan. I'll still listen to them too. lol Boyz to men were good. You mentioned a couple I've never heard of. I think my favorite is backstreet boys. It's done in a way it doesn't seem old.

I just knew about New Kids on The Block a few months ago when they had a song with Lady Gaga, they really have a good voice. I still love Backstreetboy's song until now too.

There's only one boyband that I would actually admit to liking and they're from the eighties! I'm not even sure if any of you know Menudo which as my contemporaries know as the band that really launched Ricky Martin...if you're from the eighties, the first thing that would come to mind about Menudo would be their bright spandex pants and Robbie Rosa's really high-pitched voice. Ricky Martin was already very handsome then and there was no indication that he would grow up to be what he now claims to be. Anyway, their songs were really cheesy..."Like an explosion, my love for you..." but we were seriously gaga over them.

Yes, one mylotter here loved Menudo too, unfortunately i wasn't born yet when they were famous, but I do love Ricky Martin. The 80s was a good time, with all those good bands and boybands.

he is not insulting you nor the beatles. I love the Beatles too but they are not one of the boybands..they are a band. "monkeys dancing on the stage"- he's referring to the boybands, but not really in an insulting way.. Bybands are group of singers who do not play instruments at all and just sing and dance..

I'm not a Boyband fanatic but I also appreciate the music they are making. Backstreet Boys was once a personal favorite when I was 1st or 2nd year High School. I think they are the best Boyband and the most successful ever came out.

I loved all the bands you mentioned. But I only know a few N'sync songs- they were pretty cute but the only one I remember was Justin Timberlake. I love all of Westlife songs and they're still in my music player.

My age is quite near to you- that's why I only know a few boybands.. I like panic! at the DIsco too- but Ryan got out of the band and made a new one- but still love Brendon Urie..

100% my favourite boyband is Backstreet boys. I know a lot of their text and I still remember them. Of course I have a lot of their songs on my PC and I'm listening to them time by time. Thank you lady for remembering to me the boybands...I will play Show me the meaning now :)

Well, I guess it's like fashion. They should strike while the iron is hot. They may be famous today but next month they are already a memory. But there are others who made it though but there are some after some hits they disbanded and some members prefers to be solo.

Oh boybands! I grew up lsitening to their music. I even used to believe that someday, one of them is going to be my husband. Hahaha! My favorite is Westlife too and second favorite is a1. Too bad Bryan left Westlife and Paul left a1. But still, i'm forever a boyband fanatic. :)

Yeah, I don't even get why they would leave their group, they were lie family, and Bryan leaving was really sad.. WHy did he leave anyway? I though it was to take care of his new family but then he began singing solo..

Ah yeah, don't forget about New Kids on The Block (NKOTB). They are awesome. I love their songs and I could still remember it was way back in the 80's when my brother bought me a video tape of their concert and imagine, I still had it, but I don't have any video player now. If I watch their first clip "I'll Be Loving You Forever" when they were a bunch of teens and watch them now singing that song in their adulthood, it always gives me goosebumps! I grow up with their music and watching them now still hot make me fall all over in love with them again hahaha..

Yes, New kids on the block- i only heard a few songs by them though. I just knew about them a few months ago since i haven't really been born in the 80s, I thought they were new, but they sing their songs well still.

Of course I remember. That's my generation.LOL It was the boyband era and most if not all songs are of sappy love songs with cheesy lines and unforgettable melodies.^_^ Still, I loved that time. My favorite boyband personally is Blue. They have a new album out now in case you're wondering and a new song "I can" which can be viewed in Youtube or on their Facebook page. It was kinda disappointing when they had a short boyband life. They were together for only 4 years and their peak time was only 2 years. Most of the boys had personal lives (got married and had kids) and some of them pursued solo careers which were successful in UK. Im glad that they're back but the intensity of my love for them has waned. Anyway, my all time favorite boyband would definitely be The Backstreet Boys. They were my eldest cousin's generation but I love all of their songs. Even to this day, when I hear just the intro to their songs, I just cant help but scream like a fan girl. It's also nice that they still come back to make good music but nothing beats their 90's songs. In summary, my favorite boy band because of the members would be Blue and my favorite boy band because of the songs would be The Backstreet Boys.^_^

Yeah, even if the lyrics were cheesy I still memorized them by heart. I love Blue too- but I only got to hear a few of their songs and then they separated. I'm definitely going to check out their new song. thanks for sharing .

My friend was also a fan of Westlife and would always sing along when Westlife songs play. I am a fan of backstreet boys back in the days. I enjoyed boy bands before but now I don't see them often.

Yeah, it's sad that a decade ago they were so famous all over the world- and now i rarely see them. I hope the boybadn era would come back. hey made better songs that what I hear now..

Yeah, I guess most of them had disbanded and others go solo but there are some who once in a while does concert tour.I like them too, the way they sing and their synchronized movement as if one person.I like NSYNC too and Boyzone.I hope others do reunion concerts once in a while because they are missed.

Yeah, when one of the members of band go solo, they either replace him or all of them disband. I have heard that some boybands like Westlife and Backstreetboys are having a concert this year , forgot where it was.

Boy bands don't seem to stay around for too long. Just when you get to liking one more than another, they break up or are never heard from again. I will always have a special fondness for the backstreet boys. I really enjoyed a lot of their music.
@lady1993 (13049)

Yes I love the fast paced music of the Backstreetboys too. But there are bands who really stay together and get famous for a long time, like backstreetboys and Westlife, who still had new songs this past few years.

Lol i remember those bands from my childhood.. I don't like most of them, my be cause i am a guy, any way i think that Five was the best.. It was very funny to see one guy sing every time and the other boys dance around him... Now the most of the band broke up and the really good singers start their own careers Like justin timberlake, robbie williams, george michael and more..
@lady1993 (13049)

Yeah, when I see their concerts, it's usually girls who watch them and crowd around the boybands..I haven't even seen one guy at all. I am not really familiar with 5ive- thanks for your response.

Oh yeah and that was during the mid-90's. In fact I just recently started a discussion about the 90's and how I miss stuff from that decade - including stuff from these groups. My favorite would definitely be N*SYNC. They're really talented - they could sing and dance very well. Guess it would really be great if they could perform altogether again but I doubt if they could stick as one again.

Yeah, I like N'sync too because their music makes me want to dance and their voices are cute. But nthey also have those slow songs that make you fall in love like what ilovechocolate quoted.
