Top Ten Boy Bands Ever: From 'N Sync to New Kids on the Block and Menudo

Back in the 90s, boy bands were a dime a dozen. We would flip on MTV to see who made the cut on Total Request Live, only to find that 90 percent of the videos featured three to five pouty-lipped Ken Dolls with frosted tips.

10. 'N Sync
Maybe we would have ranked these Lou Pearlman pretty boys higher if Lance Bass had actually become the first gay ex-boy band vocalist to float in space.
