The ABCs of Boy Bands

The ABCs of Boy Bands

Your reaction to reading the title of this post was probably one of three things: a horrific cringe, an indifferent “meh”, or an earth-shattering fangirl squeal. And whether you admit it or not, you’ve most likely jammed out to some boy bands at some point, whether it was One Direction or Boyz II Men. And whether you like it or not, boy bands are here to stay! So as a part of society, we should all be aware of the vast variety of boy bands.
