Funny, I actually once thought Nick Jonahs was cute and wondered if he could sing. Turns out he turns me off... And yes, I remember the Backstreet Boys and N'Lysce. Those good old days... And the Dreamstreet Boys, too.

I really loved boy bands when I was a preteen/teenager, but now I think most of them are just OK (except the Beatles, the Beatles will always be awesome!) And yeah, I really like "What Makes You Beautiful," too. Excellent job, Face! PS: Wow, and I thought MY dad was cheap!

The Beatles are the greatest band of all time.
I was guilty of liking the Jonas brothers for one c-d. Everything after that I didn't really like.
What makes you beautiful? yeah, I agree. I like that song, but it is really corny.

Loved it. You went way back in time here and really nailed the origins of this particular meme in music. I enjoyed most of these bands back in the day and I still do. And oddly enough, I remember that Scooby Doo episode as well. O_O

Awesome one Face. Seeing how I'm a boy, it feels awfully awkward to have listened to NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys when I was in grade school, but I wasn't alone, and I'm not alone today in thinking they're both very corny bands.
