I was pumped when I saw the link-up for this. I love me some boy bands. It brings me back to a sweeter time in my childhood when all men danced in sync with each other, wore similar outfits and made me swoon with one little wink. Why can’t all men be this cool?
First up, of course, N’Sync. You were either Backstreet Boys 4 Life or N’Sync…I was more of an N’Sync girl myself. Not that I don’t appreciate the Backstreet gang, I just have this unrealistic expectation that J. Timberlake wants my lady bits.
Why yes, I will be your girlfriend.
Backstreet Boys – I love that they’re called Backstreet, like you’d totally see them in a gang on your way to buy dope or something and they’d deter you from buying with their smooth vocals and amazing dance moves. Backstreet saves lives, my friends.
Blink 182 – I don’t know if you could say they’re a “boy band” because they were a little more alternative than pop, but they’re all boys and I had a poster on my wall – so I’m going to count them.
And don’t you think I forgot about you Hanson. You mmmbopped your way into my heart and have never left. Like seriously, you’re always on my running playlists.
What was your favorite boy band? Or is? Or did you despise boy bandness with every fiber of your being?
Because if so, I’d like to know how – I mean, that shit is catchy. I don’t think I could say no to one of their tunes even if I tried.
