Remember those incredibly popular Boy Bands that were all the talk back at the turn of the century?
Well they’re back. Except, now you can more accurately label them “Man Bands.”
Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, and Hanson are all coming back with new albums this year. Actually, the 98 Degrees album was already released back in May, but who even knew? Here is their lead single:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmCJguRGXyA[/youtube]
Next up: Hanson. You remember this Boy Band for their worldwide hit MMMBop. Well their new album just came out TODAY. ‘Get The Girl Back’ is their lead single, and it’s not bad if you ask me.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh8mQU-tNyM[/youtube]
Now the Backstreet Boys, the most popular of all Boy Bands is also coming out with a new album this year, set to be released July 30th. No songs have officially been released yet, but their lead single ‘In a World Like This’ is to premiere TODAY on the Z100 Radio Station. Back Street’s Back (again).
The return of these groups has me wondering: Have these boy bands matured as their fans have? Are they trying to retake old fans or get new young fans the same age we were when we listened to them? And can they compete with the new pop stars out there like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Beyonce, and One Direction? We’ll find out soon enough!
