I cant believe us slackers didnt define this better sooner!

A group of 5 pop singing hotties from Boston who caused mania in pre-teen and teen girls worldwide. They gained popularity in 1988 producing multiple awards, #1's and top 10 hits until disbanding in 1994. After the band split, blockheads (NKOTB fans) were left with empty hearts, and buttons, dolls, shirts, and albums were placed away into their personal time capsule.

Time caplules were opened up in 2008 A reunion tour and album was made. Expected by some, very unexpected by others the NKOTB have been causing mania once again, in their female fans. Fans NKOTB shirts dont fit anymore (Though some try) but years of memories, photos, buttons, cassetes, videos, and emotions have been brought back out.

The band membersare all still delicious looking. They are Jordan Knight, Jon Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Donnie Wahlberg.

They have done an amazing job at welcoming the fans back into their lives, and have made alot of effort to meet their fans, something that was just a dream the first go around.

A belated urban welcome back boys!
Lyrics-New Kids on the Block-1986
"Cause once we start to jam, you'll be in a state of shock
Clear the way party people, we're the new kids on the block"
