#BadBoyBandNames via Hashtag, You’re It!: The Top Picks By @BrandNewMcMann


Boy bands are not a new concept. Most people will point all the way back to the popularity of the barbershop quartet. You know a barbershop quartet right? They’re a group of 4 guys, singing, wearing matching outfits, with choreography, and songs about wooing women. Sounds familiar doesn’t it. But like most popular things it was eventually replaced by other types of singing groups like Doo-wop groups. Although the term “Boy Band” wasn’t used until the late 80’s bands that easily fit the definition had been around for decades. The Beatles took America by storm in the 60’s. Kiss started their own army in the 70’s. Menudo brought us a Latin version of a boy band in the 80’s. *NSYNC sang to “Everybody” in the 90’s. We’ve all grown up with byo bands. We’ve seen them come and we’ve seen them go. What makes a good boy band is really hard to predict. But what makes a bad boy band can be as easy as a terrible band name. That’s why for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I asked Twitter for their ideas for some #BadBoyBandNames. So check out the list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
