The Best Boy Bands Of All Time  was originally published on

1. The Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys

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 Men

Boyz II Men

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 Block

New Kids on the Block

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 Edition

New Edition

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 5

The Jackson 5

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 […]

6. N’Sync


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 Brothers

The Jonas Brothers

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 Direction

One Direction

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.”

9. 112


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?

10. B2K


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 Degrees

98 Degrees

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.
