History Early history The earliest forerunner of boy band music began in the late 19th century as a cappella barbershop quartets. Barbershop quartets were popular into the earlier part of the 20th century.

A revival of the male vocal group took place in the late s and s with the use of doo-wop music. Doo-wop bands sang about topics such as love and other themes used in pop music.

The earliest traces of boy bands were in the mids although the term boy band was not used. African American vocal group The Ink Spots was one of the first of what would now be called boy bands. The term boy band was not established until the late s as before that they were called male vocal groups or "hep harmony singing groups". The rock and pop band started a career in music after their songs from the TV series released as records resulted successful. The Jackson 5 and the Osmonds The Osmonds Although the term "boy band" was not commonly used yet, the earliest predecessors of this format were groups such as the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds which helped form the template for boy bands.

For instance, their music featured close harmonies from soul music and catchy pop hooks influenced as much as they were by Motown and acts like the Supremes. The group also incorporated choreographed dance moves to their performances.

All members of the band sang, which is a common convention of a boy band, as opposed to having a front man and the rest on instruments; thus, no one person dominated the stage. Menudo, New Edition, and New Kids on the Block Other antecedents apart from those already mentioned exist throughout the history of pop music.

The genre has been copied into languages and cultures other than the Anglo-American. The Puerto Rican boy band Menudo , appealing to young Latina audiences, was founded in Menudo had a convention unique among boy bands: The members of Menudo were generally aged 12— The Bay City Rollers were a Scottish pop band who were most popular in the mids.

The group were one of the first bands, like The Monkees before them, to take the formula shown by The Beatles and apply it to a teen market. The group achieved the same amount of success but for a limited period of time.

At the peak of their popularity in the UK, comparisons were being made to The Beatles. Also by this time, Bay City Roller fans had a completely distinctive style of dress, the main elements of which were ankle-length tartan trousers and tartan scarves , the group using the benefit of merchandise and promotion.

Vocalist Eric Carmen later commented, "It was not hip for people to like us, because their little sister liked us. Bros abbreviation of the word "brothers" were a British boy band active in the late s and early s, consisting of twin brothers Matt and Luke Goss along with Craig Logan. Formed in , they scored multiple top 10 hits between and and in became the first modern era—style boy band to have a multiple platinum-selling album in Britain, with Push , still one of the most successful boy-band albums in the UK.

Bros were marketed and pitted against Take That as rivals with a harsher attitude, style and sound. Since reforming in after a decade-long hiatus, Take That have become one of the most successful groups in British music chart history and their albums and singles have also charted internationally, especially in Europe.

Irish music manager Louis Walsh , who had witnessed the impact of these British boy bands, put out an advert for an "Irish Take That", thereby creating Boyzone in Let Loose formed in , MN8 and formed in , and Damage formed in were also successful boy bands in Britain; however, by the late s all these bands had run their course and split up.

All these artists were very successful on both the singles and albums charts domestically and internationally; however, with the emergence of Britpop and the commercial co-option of indie rock , many boy bands were ridiculed by the British music press as having no artistic credibility, although some, such as East 17 and Take That, did write most of their own material. The media attention was then placed on the "Battle of Britpop", and the bands Oasis and Blur replaced the importance and rivalry of Take That and East 17 as the two new biggest bands in Britain.

However, boy bands continued to find success in the late s, such as Five , Another Level , Point Break and Westlife. Although being American and the sons of Tito Jackson , a member of The Jackson 5 , 3T had several hits singles across Europe in the mids, despite limited success in the US, and finished the second biggest selling act of in Europe behind Spice Girls.

The group enjoyed tremendous success, selling over 35 million records. Backstreet Boys sold over million records. Boyz II Men are also the most successful boy band act on the U.

Hot as well as the Australian Singles Chart. Although they had success on the Billboard charts, they were not marketed towards youth but more towards adults. This late s marked the height of boy band popularity in North America, which hasn't been seen since.

Arguably the most successful boy band manager from the U. Backstreet Boys and NSYNC became the two biggest boy bands in the late s until the early s, and Backstreet Boys went on to tie The Jackson 5 as the best-selling boy bands in history with over million records sold. Westlife was created by Irishman Louis Walsh as a replacement for Boyzone and was initially managed by a former member of the band Ronan Keating. In , the Official Charts Company revealed the biggest selling singles artists in British music chart history with Take That placed 15th overall and the highest selling boyband act 9.

International boy bands would also occasionally spring up, such as the Moldovan band O-Zone better known today as an Internet meme , and Overground. American Christian boy band Plus One also enjoyed brief remarkable success during this time. At the height of boy band popularity in North America , MTV created their own parody boyband, 2gether. Like The Monkees in the s, they were a manufactured act composed of actors. Since , the dominance of traditional boy bands on pop charts began to fade in the western hemisphere, although Gil Kaufman of MTV has described "new boy bands" that are "more likely to resemble My Chemical Romance , Sum 41 , and Simple Plan.

Their popularity spread throughout Asia. Also in , a new all-male pop band and dance group boyband hailing from Japan called Exile debuted under Avex Group's label Rhythm Zone with 14 members, putting them on par with Super Junior , a South Korean boy band, who had 13 members at its peak. Other boy bands like JLS and Mindless Behavior also emerged and experienced remarkable success around this time. However, apart from them, boy bands haven't seen the commercial boom experienced in the genre from the mid to late nineties in North America.

The mid s, especially the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, saw the continued longevity of nineties boy bands such as Backstreet Boys and Westlife before they disbanded in , and the successful comeback of Take That in , Boyzone in , and New Kids on the Block in Some sections of the press have referred to these acts, particularly those who have reformed after a previous split, such as Take That, Boyzone, and 98 Degrees , as 'man bands'.

One Direction and rise of K-pop One Direction rose to fame in In the Philippines, a major boy band has been formed by bringing the first reality boy band search of the country called Pinoy Boyband Superstar which held mid , after all the series of auditions, rigorous training and competition, the winners formed as a group called Boyband PH a five-piece Pinoy boy band which managed by Star Magic In South Korea, boy bands have been commercially successful.

The key factor of a boy band is being trendy. This means that the band conforms to the most recent fashion and musical trends in the popular music scene.

Typically, each member of the group will have some distinguishing feature and be portrayed as having a particular personality stereotype, such as "the baby," "the bad boy," or "the shy one. In most cases, their music is written, arranged and produced by a producer who works with the band at all times and controls the group's sound — if necessary, to the point of hiring session singers to record guide vocals for each member of the group to sing individually if the members cannot harmonize well together.

However, for clarity of each voice, recording each voice individually is most commonly the norm with most modern vocal groups. In recent years auto-tune has become a popular tool for boy bands who are unable to sing to a high standard. Some boy bands have come under fire for this issue of using auto-tune. Some have also come under fire for lip syncing in their performances as well, for example New Kids on the Block. Boy bands generally do not compose or produce their own material, unless the members lobby hard enough for creative control.

However, some bands were created around the talent of a songwriter within the group like Gary Barlow of Take That or Tony Mortimer of East It is not uncommon to find extra songs on an album written by one or more of the band members; however, their producers rarely use these as singles. Since the 21st century, however, boy bands have been expected to write or at least contribute in some part lyrically to songs. Apart from the groups mentioned above who all had at least one primary songwriter from their beginning, other groups soon caught up.

From the late nineties, members of Backstreet Boys who had previously used writers like Max Martin during their early albums began writing their own songs. Newer groups from late s such as JLS have all made a point from early interviews that they write their own songs and hold their own image as this is an important part of marketing. Some bands like The Wanted have even spent time learning the craft of songwriting.

Usually this signals the end of the group until potential future reunions. Sometimes the most successful solo star from a band is not the most popular member such as Robbie Williams as opposed to lead singer Gary Barlow from Take That. Some boy band members have gone on to successful careers elsewhere in the media. South 65 and Marshall Dyllon , for example, were both country music boy bands.

Il Divo , created by Simon Cowell in , are a vocal group that performs operatic pop in several mainly Italian languages. Since there has been some crossover with power pop and pop punk from bands that play live instruments. Just recently some boy bands decided to go back to their original doo-wop roots, most notably, The Overtones.

Controversy Since the s, groups such as Backstreet Boys and LFO have disliked the term "boy band" and have preferred to be known as a "male vocal group".

27 Mar In the late '90s and early '00s, boy bands ruled all. Though these pop stars were preceded by the likes of the Beatles and followed by the mania.

Such criticisms can become extremely scathing. Best-selling boy bands The following is a list of the best-selling boy bands based on claimed sales figures of over 40 million records:
