If there was one thing that screamed ‘90s, it was the never-ending string of boy bands. I’m picturing them now, all strung up like those paper dolls that you could hang up by the hands — there were certainly enough of them back then to make one of those paper things. In the ‘90s the only thing more common than boy bands were mom jeans and crop tops. And the love that fans felt for their boy band of choice was strong. Maybe it’s because there were so many of them, but I remember people being either devout loyalists or anti-boy band altogether. There was no in between when it came to loving boy bands.
But the other thing about boy bands was that the band you devoted all of your time, love, and locker space to said more about you than you probably even realized. Because the girls who loved *NSYNC were nothing like the girls who loved the Backstreet Boys, and you know it. No divide has ever been wider or more apparent.
Just take a look at this list below. Because which ‘90s boy band you crushed your heart out over says way more about who you are today than you probably ever realized.
A true ‘90s girl, you were into boy bands before boy bands were really a thing. You are ahead of the times, always have your finger on the pulse of what’s cool, and are probably always into things long before your friends are. You also probably have a weird thing for androgynous guys as a result of your Hanson love, but there isn’t anything wrong with that. I promise.
And you thought boy bands were a thing of your past! Little did you know, they have shaped your entire life — right down to the inner workings of your very personality.
