Many people often make fun of those who enjoy listening to boy bands from the 1990's such as N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, and New Kids on the Block since they are considered to be "uncool" by today's society. However, clearly many of these boy bands must have had a particularly significant amount of fans in order to become as popular and as wealthy as they did. And, even though the boy bands of the 1990's have disappeared, new and improved boy bands, such as One Direction, the Jonas Brothers, and Big Time Rush have recently made a comeback in the 2000's. Yes, everyone likes to make fun of them, but it seems as though the world just can't get enough of them. So, what exactly is it about these musical groups that make them so appealing to us? Well, one of the reasons that boy bands become so popular and successful is due to the fact that the lyrics and beat of their songs are extremely catchy. And, whether you would like to admit it or not, you have most likely sung along to at least one song that was performed by a boy band. In addition, the boys who are members of these bands are also very attractive and sing gushy love songs, making them much more appealing to girls. This may be the reason most men highly dislike this type of music, thus providing an answer as to why boy bands have developed the reputation of being "uncool" by society's standards. But, regardless of whether you like or dislike boy bands, they will most likely remain popular for quite a few more years to come.
