With the recent resurgence of boy bands both new and old, we've decided to look back at our favorite boy bands of the '90s, the decade where those sweet, sweet harmonies (and even sweeter dance moves) all really started.
If you almost climbed through your TV when the Kids' Choice Awards aired to steal Ariana Grande's '90s Nickelodeon-themed purse or have recently felt the overwhelming urge to start papering your walls with centerfold posters from Tiger Beat magazine, you're not alone. The '90s have come back with a vengeance.
UPDATE: 5ive have since rebuttled against 98 Degrees, with member Abz Love telling TMZ that he and " J were talking about who in the hell gets their band name tattooed on themselves and concluded they must all be jockstraps!” and saying the band "sucked ass and probably still do." (Watch the video below.)
NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, who are on the road together as the Package Tour, brought the '90s to the 'Today' show this morning (May 30) in New York City. The boy bands, who were at their respective peaks in the 1990s, proved that they are incredibly viable two decades later by demonstrating flawless dance moves while delivering their delightfully harmonized pop.
There are tons of awesome album releases slated for May 2013, from Demi Lovato's much buzzed-about, eponymous LP to Daft Punk's first studio album since 2005. Obviously, from that comparison, there's a bit of everything in the mix, so pop, R&B, electro and rock fans are sure to have lots of new material on their iPods or Spotify playlists. But, out of all the albums due in May 2013, which are you most excited for?
98 Degrees reunited last August and recently scheduled an upcoming arena tour with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, but one thing Nick Lachey and company hadn't given their fans was brand new music to enjoy ... until now. The foursome revealed that on May 7, they will release '2.0,' their first album of new material in 13 years.
Children of the '90s, rejoice! Less than a year after wrapping up their hugely successful boy band tour with the Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block will try to repeat that success by heading out on the road this summer with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. And this isn't just a nostalgia tour — NKOTB announced that they have a brand new single and album on the way too!
Everyone's taking quite the trip down memory lane lately. First we had the Spice Girls performing at the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony, then it was 98 Degrees reuniting on 'The Today Show,' and now it's 98 Degrees again, performing with the Wanted and New Kids on the Block at the first-ever MixTape Festival in Hershey, Penn. We're not really complaining...
Get ready, boy band fans. 98 Degrees will be reuniting for the first time in over 10 years when they hit the stage this August at the 2012 Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pa.
