Girls have their hormones all in a tizzy over this international band of young boys with skinny jeans and weird hair and as much as I shake my head and *tisk tisk* at their silliness, it totes reminds me of myself at their age when my world revolved around a REAL boy band.....
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK, bitches.
I was a 13 year old girl obsessed. On fire. Infatuated with all of them and their music, but most especially, with Jordan Knight. And can I just add something right now that supports my early assessment of his hotness? He's still mothereffing hot. MORE SO today than back then. Evidence:
NKOTB was my very first live concert. They replaced the Corey Haim and Bon Jovi posters on my walls. I cried to all their songs and videos. I was RIDICULOUS you guys. Embarrassingly ridiculous.
To me they were the boy band to define the genre.
But there were more to come....
I recall my college years when boy bands such as the Back Street Boys and 'NSYNC were super popular. I was old enough then not to be swept up by their boyish looks and melodies but my younger relatives weren't so immune.
