Do you remember when you first started hearing about boy bands? When people of our generation hear the term “boy band,” we almost immediately relate that phrase to the pop sensations of the late 1990s, such as the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.
However, way before the teenybopper phase that some of us went through, New Kids on the Block existed as one of the original five-member pop boy bands. Many of our peers have no idea who NKOTB is. Some only know them through LFO’s famous “Summer Girls” with the lyrics “New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick.”
