Are These The 20 Best Boy Band Songs of All-Time?

Rolling Stone has put out a list of ‘The 50 Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time’ . . . and it hits everybody from The Monkees to One Direction, so it isn’t just ALL the easy stuff from the late ’90s and early 2000s.

They specifically left out Hanson (which Chantel was not happy about). Boyz II Men, All-4-One, and Color Me Badd were also omitted, because they were, quote, “too close to the Motown vocal group tradition.”

Here’s the Top 20:

1.  “I Want You Back”, The Jackson 5  (1969)

2.  “I’ll Be There”, The Jackson 5  (1970)

3.  “Saturday Night”, Bay City Rollers  (1975)

4.  “I’m a Believer”, The Monkees  (1967)

5.  “I Want It That Way”, Backstreet Boys  (1999)

6.  “Bye, Bye, Bye”, ‘N Sync  (2000)
