Before One Direction topped the music charts and gained the admiration from young fans worldwide, we already have an impressive list of boy bands that won the hearts of teenage girls since the 60’s. Boy bands are generally created by their managers and record companies not only for the music, but also for the continuous money input from tours, merchandise and many more.
Most often than not, fan girls do experience a monumental ‘breakdown’ once their favourite boy band member marries a real-life girlfriend or if they decide to quit from the group.
Are you ready to scream and shout? Here are the Top 10 Best-Selling Boy Bands of All Time counting down from number 10…
#10 Take That
Who would have thought that five lads from Manchester are about to make young fans fall for their ‘boy next door’ image during the early 90’s? Product of an ambitious manager Nigel Martin-Smith’s vision, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams started performing in numerous gay night clubs before scoring their first hit. Before you know it, they’re already singing and dancing their way to super stardom. The departure of Robbie Williams from the group in 1995 pushed the group to disband eight months after.
The original members of Take That released the critically-acclaimed reunion album ‘Progress’ in 2010 much to the delight of their loyal fans. Members of the group are currently focusing on their solo careers, but promised to reunite for a brand new album in 2014.
