Back when music was full of boybands, there was no escaping them! Saying this, the majority of us loved them at some point growing up; possible still to this day. Some may call these musicians mentioned below a “guilty pleasure” but there’s no shame when it comes to listening to whatever puts you in a good mood right? For sure! Flicking through the music channels and hearing these classics amongst chart favourites makes me realise how much fun music was back then, in terms of catchy-ness (highly doubt that is a word but is now ha) and how little picking of certain aspects of the track there was from consumers unlike now where people go to lengths to find a negative in pretty much anything.
Some of these groups are not ‘boys’ as such in these videos but do we really need to go into that haha. So let’s have a look back at what I think are just some of the greatest boyband anthems.
Backstreet Boys – ‘I Want It That Way’
Boyz II Men – ‘End Of The Road’
N Sync – ‘Bye Bye Bye’
Hanson – ‘MMMBop’
The Jackson 5 – ‘ABC’
Five – ‘Keep On Movin”
Take That – ‘Never Forget’
Westlife – ‘Flying Without Wings’
Blue- ‘One Love’
