You are my fire.

Words by

Arianna Lucente

The matching outfits. The curtained hair. The broken hearts.

You may think every boy band is the same, but you’re wrong. Don’t even joke about these things.

A boy band ain’t just a regular band. They’re a hunky group of young male dreamboats with killer dance moves and heart-melting pipes.

Boy bands have characterised the music industry since the 1960s. Think of the Jackson 5, The Monkees and The Four Seasons as the first of their kind. Then there was New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys and NSYNC… right up to current heartthrobs, One Direction.

Baggy jeans, shiny jackets, bombers, caps and wife beaters.

Mmm…(bop)
