*NSYNC Is #2 on E!’s “15 Most Awesomest Boy Bands” list

Submitted by on July 25, 2012 – 3:30 pm31 Comments

Just like in the late 90s and early 00s, it came down to a battle between *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys on E!’s “15 Most Awesomest Boy Bands” list last night. Basing their rankings on boy bands of the past 30 or so years (which exclude arguable boy bands like The Monkees and The Beatles), could there really have been any other outcome?

Unfortunately, selling 1.2 million in one day and 2.4 million albums in one week wasn’t enough to oust BSB, who we assume took the top spot because they are still touring and currently recording an album.

Here’s the complete list:
15. The Wanted
14. Color Me Badd
13. O-Town
12. Menudo
11. LFO
10. Take That (also known as the band Robbie Williams was in)
9. Hanson
8. 98 Degrees
7. Jonas Brothers
6. 1 Direction
5. Boys II Men
4. New Edition
3. New Kids on the Block
1. Backstreet Boys

What do you think? Did they get it right?

    I’m trying to figure out how in the world The Jonas Brothers are #7…

  • Mandah

    BSB sold 5 million albums in a week worldwide for Black and Blue so Nsync’s 2,4 million is really doesn’t hold a candle.

     SERIOUSLY!? are u fucking kidding me? since when is 1 direction even a good band? Its filled with justin bieber wanna-bes. what about fucking maroon 5? not only is Adam Levine sexy as hell but at least they’re original. I dont want to live on this planet anymore if people think this list is even remotely correct.

    • Tricia

      Yes, Maroon 5 is great, Adam Levin is totally sexy, but they are not a boy band.  they are a genuine Rock band.

  • WinWin

    This list considers only boy bands popular in the US. I guess that makes sense since E! compiled it..but I wish they had given honourable mentions to bands like Boyzone and Westlife who are HUGE in the rest of the world. 

    • WinWin

      Oh..forgot to say – NSYNC should have been #1! I definitely think music wise they had some really good tracks when compared to BSB.

    • hihihihihihi

      um one direction is an English/Irish boyband…? They’re popular everywhere not just the US dumbass

    • Carressa

    If BSB really sold 5 million albums in a week. Why No Strings Attached is the most sold album of decade?
    I Hate BSB fans. Backshit boys try to do what *NSYNC did.

    • Lana

      Except no strings attached is NOT the most sold album of the decade, check your facts,

  • TW Prisoner

    Eh. The Wanted will always be my number 1 ♥ top 15 list or not.
