When it comes to boy bands, the first group that comes to mind for most is Backstreet Boys. The hit group of the '90s (to the early 2000s) took pop music by storm, closely followed by the similar N'SYNC. From platinum-certified albums to sold-out tours across the globe, these groups hit the scene hard. While these are certainly two of the biggest names in the history of boy bands, they are actually far from the only ones—and they weren't even the first in terms of boy bands. Sure, you have the more recent groups like BTS and One Direction, among a slew of Japanese boy bands, but the '80s also brought a small wave of boy bands to the scene, such as New Kids on the Block. But before that, we had two of the earliest all-male pop groups: the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds. Though each of these groups have released some great albums over the years, what will go down as the best boy band albums of all time?
Without a doubt, the Backstreet Boys' self-titled album will always have a top spot on a list of best albums by boy bands—not to mention Black & Blue. Even though they weren't the first of their kind, they brought a new meaning to the term and will go down as one of the greatest boy bands. Whether it was the music videos, the charm, or the killer, choreographed dance moves—they brought something new to the table. You might even say the same of N'SYNC with their No Strings Attached album. And while the '90s/'00s boy band wave quickly crashed, the 2010s offered a new array of these male groups who, again, started taking over the charts and selling out tours world wide. These are groups like the aforementioned BTS (possibly the most famous boy band of their time), 5 Seconds of Summer, and even BROCKHAMPTON. However, we can't forget the often-overlooked groups like A1, Blue, and Take That—all of which produced at least one top boy band album throughout their short careers.
Considering all this, it's time to cast your votes for the greatest boy band albums of all time.
