About This Quiz

Boy bands have a pretty long history that tons of people want to overlook. For real, what is a boy band anyway? Just a band of young guys? That's like every band ever. There used to be old school a cappella groups, and folk bands, and rock bands that were all young kind of hot guys for years now. It was only in the '80s anyone wanted to start calling them "boy bands" specifically and that was mostly directed at New Kids on the Block. That was the band everyone's mom loved in 1989.

If a group of boys makes good music then they're going to be popular and that just makes sense. But the thing is there are sooooo many of them now, how do you pick "the best" one? Can you? Maybe you don't need to pick. Maybe we can pick for you! Not necessarily your favorite band, but the ban that pretty much is you. You know what we mean. When a band is like...in your head. In your heart! A band that sings right to you. That's the band we're talking about. Think we know who it was? Well, pop in your earbuds and take the quiz!
