New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) rose to fame in the late 1980s and sparked what became the boy band phenomenon. Later the release of their album Hangin’ Tough in 1988, teenage girls everywhere had posters of Jordan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jonathan Knight, and Danny Wood adorning their bedroom walls. Their goods were in every store.
In the mid-nineties, the Boston band broke up and the guys went their separate ways, but they got back together in 2008 and released their seventh album. Since then, they’ve made even more music, completed several successful tours, and organized several cruises for die-hard fans. Despite most of the band members now being in their late 40s or 50s, NKOTB shows no signs of slowing down.
