Into every generation, a Boy Band is born (despite what some people might think).  They may change genre slightly, but they are still boy bands by definition. Here’s a brief Wiki-history (before you automatically dismiss this post- it’s worth reading.  these aren’t just my opinions).  I’m also not comparing each group’s music- just providing a little historical perspective.  The ‘boy bands’ above are:

The Beatles (1960s)
Menudo (1970s)
New Kids on the Block (1980s)
Backstreet Boys (1990s)
Good Charlotte (2000s)
One Direction (2010-present)
