Entertainment Special: 15 Awesomest Boy Bands" premieres on July 24 at 9 PM ET/PT.

    Select Quotes from this special include:

    "You want it what way? What way do you want it?? [That] song makes no sense..." AJ McLean, Backstreet Boys

    "The feeling that you get when you're standing on the stage and there are 10,000 screaming girls... it can become addictive." - Brad Fischetti, LFO

    "When we went to the radio station they're like, ‘you're not 98 Degrees, you guys are white.'" - Jeff Timmons, 98 Degrees

    "We left Radio City and there were hundreds of girls running after the bus through traffic." - Niall Horan, One Direction

    I kind of missed the whole "boy band" phenom - it's generational. But I liked MmmBop by Hanson; and I like their entire "Shout It Out" album from a few years back. They did a really good homage to "The Blues Brothers" in their video for "Thinkin' Bout Something".

    Why is the Wanted so low icon_sad.gif

    The guys from One Direction are rather douchy, or so I gleaned. They were staying at the same resort in San Diego when I went skydiving. Before I arrived, my friends were hanging out poolside and they all came down. Apparently they don't like their pictures taken as my buddy was approached by one of the security details with them... he politely informed them that they're on public property and snapped a few more pics.

    Yeah, I'll admit. I was a boy band junkie!

    Color Me Badd's cover of "Wildflower" still blows me away.

    And please let me be the filling in a Kevin Richardson and Jeff Timmons sandwich, pronto. Add a side of Joey Fatone

    lol. The only thing they have in common with boybands is that they're all guys. If that was the definition of a boyband, even the Strokes would be considered a boyband. But a boyband is a commercial product made to appeal to teenage girls (which happens to be the exact same market that targets gay guys).

    Westlife just had 1 hit single back in what 2002, is it? They weren't really hot imho, so that's why they're not on the list?

    The terms "best" and "boy bands" should never be in the same sentence.

    E! should do the top 10 or 15 Asian boy bands ! or leave that to MTV Asia, I think the problem is most *Asian boy bands sing in either Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Tagalog or Vietnamese (in their own languages), there is no Crossed-Over English Asian boy bands, that's why they're not on the list, too?

    Although there is one cute Chinese? dude from O-town, he made it through the final round and got cut?

    The only Asian boy band I can think of is Far East Movement. They're ok, mostly they sing hip-hop though.

    No mention about the Jackson Five. This list is a bunch of bullshit

    Without them there would be no new kids on the block, Nstank or Backstreet Boys

    I'm request to add Westlife to the list. They are one of the few boy band who sing very very good rather than just a style/pop icons.
