In other words, boy bands across the globe have taken the music world by storm throughout the 2010s, dominating the music charts and selling out tours everywhere. While much of their fan base may be under the age of 18, that doesn't take away from the fame these boy bands are experiencing. Of all today's popular boy bands, however, who is the most famous?

However, Kpop groups aren't the only ones making waves in the music industry, as groups like Why Don't We and Brockhampton could also be considered some of the most famous boy bands right now. Of course, this is all up to you fans to decide.
