New Kids on the Block to Stage a Comeback

Are The New Kids on the Block Hangin' Tough Again?

"I Remember When" the New Kids on the Block were the coolest band in every oversized-T-shirt-and-jelly-bracelet-wearing girl's record collection. Jonathan, Joey, Jordan, Danny, and Donnie definitely had "The Right Stuff."

But, more than a decade after the band called it quits, can they once again "Hold On" to their 80s-era fame? According to People, the New Kids are coming back, following in the footsteps of the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls. People said an announcement would come in the next couple of weeks, and the band's official site is active again. (No word yet on whether the official fan club will follow.) Update: Danny Wood reportedly issued a MySpace bulletin denying the report.

I have to imagine one New Kid (but which one?) woke up one morning, surveyed the remains of his entertainment career, and started to wonder, "Where Do I Go From Here?" Do you think all the New Kids were ready for a reunion? Or did one have to plead with the rest: "Let's Try It Again." "Time Is On Our Side!"

"What'cha Gonna Do About It"? Do you think NKOTB will have to "Face the Music" with an ill-fated comeback? Or will you be loving them (forever)?

Ahh the memories, all my friends and I (who coincidentally all liked different members) gathering in my living room waiting for the pay-per-view concert. I think my mom still has my jacket which she was convinced was going to be a collectors item someday, lol. Those are some memories and some baaaad hair back then.

I would so go. I saw (and met!!) Joey in April and oh my gosh, my dreams were totally fufilled. My friends always wonder how in the world I liked them since I was so young (about 5 years old)...I was boy crazy early on in life.

Seems like a comeback could be in the works based on their (updated) Web site. It's nkotb dot com. (I checked it out "Tonight" - lol)

Jonathan would have to get over his really bad stage fright. Remember when he was on Oprah years ago and had a panic attack on stage just coming on stage with her?

Maybe they will stage a comeback since so many seem to be interested.

Wow! Kudos for working in so many song titles into this post! I'm totally impressed! And the Cartoon? "Call it what you want", but I loved it.

I completely forgot about the cartoon until you just mentioned it. If they DID have a reunion tour, I would probably go.

Apparently it's a load of bs and there will be no reunion. These were my first boy band crushes, I even loved their cartoon. The memories, I remeber on independence day one year in my country when it still rocked we watched a live broadcast of their concert one of the coolest things at the time lol.
