NKOTBSB: New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys Songs

NKOTB vs. BSB: Can You Match the Love Song Lyrics to the Boy Band?

Backstreet's back and the New Kids are making a comeback this Summer on the NKOTBSB tour. And yesterday, Joey McIntyre welcomed another new kid to the family, when his wife gave birth to a girl. Back in the day, I was a total fan of the New Kids. I'll admit I owned a signed photograph and a jacket with the boys' faces on the back. It took me a while to warm up to the second wave of boy band craze that included the Backstreet Boys, but I managed to learn the lyrics to a lot of their hits over the years. Test your NKOTBSB skills now with our fun quiz. Just match each cheesy love song lyric to the band.

Yeah, 9/9... I went through a major boy band phase in my early tweens(tweeeens!). But then I hit 14, bought black eyeliner and a Nine Inch Nails CD and didn't look back. Apparently that information is still there, hiding in my head just ready to pop out for trivia's sake.

9/9, baby. I was a huge BSB fan back in the day and listened to their cds over and over and over. Putting it mildly, their songs are permanently lodged in my brain.

8/9 I haven't listened to BSB in ages, and I never listened to NKOTB, but I must say I like a good BSB, N*SYNC or 98 Degrees song when I'm in a nostalgic mood.

9/9...I'm kinda ashamed to say I'm a BSB fan lol. Well I used to be more of an N Sync fan but yeah also a BSB fan. But don't listen to NKOTB but the songs I didn't recognize I checked them as an NKOTB song.

9/9! It's awful. I had a BSB picture book that a friend and I would obsess over, and I could even recognize some of the blurred out pictures here.(Especially the last one!) So embarrassing.

Technically it's not a comeback for BSB since they have been releasing albums on a pretty regular basis and touring as well.
