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. The top bands on the list are truly the greatest boy bands of all time, since the most famous boy band artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best boy band music.

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.

If you like New Kids on the Block or 'N Sync, then make your voice heard. All important, significant, and iconic names in boy band music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely.

The list includes all new boy bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of boy band, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into boy band music. 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. Tweet this or Facebook it to make sure your friends weigh in too.
