Music snobs aside, fans know that top boy bands are incredibly talented and creative and - in most cases - deserve all of the fame and attention they get from fans. However! Not all boy bands are created equal, so we must rank them. This list of the top boy bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution and is an up-to-date and current list that is ranked in order of best to worst.

All the top boy band bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the boy band band names themselves.

The list includes all types boy bands from yesteryear to today, from Hanson with songs like "MMMBop" to K-pop.

No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent boy band bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best boy band bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest boy band musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular boy band bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
