and Justin Bieber
monopolized the teen scene, boy bands ruled pop culture. Remember those days when your middle school girlfriend would jabber on about *NSYNC
guys amongst her friends while you sat right next to her at lunch? We do (and we're still bitter, obviously). We also remember how we then broke it off with her and ended up single, lonely, and playing Resident Evil
on Friday nights. But we digress. From The Jackson Five
and New Kids On The Block
chart-toppers Backstreet Boys
and *NSYNC, boy bands once had the power to send the entire female population into the nearest Target to purchase underwear with their boyish faces splattered all the fronts.
Yet, over a decade into the 21st century, singing and dancing mama's boys in matching turtlenecks have become obsolete. What's left now are the residuals of a quick Jonas Brothers aftershock and a completely random New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys collaboration album, NKOTBSB, which hit stores yesterday. Though they've still got their sound, they no longer have as many groupies, which is fine given most of them, including their groupies, are either married or over it.
Back in the day, though, they had the star power, which Joe Jonas has somehow inherited, to attract some of the hottest "It" women of their generation. For nostalgia's sake, let's take a look back at the 10 Hottest Women Who Have Dated Boy Band Members.
