I'll say! Bandanna's rock...and you know why?
That pop sensation of the early 90's (New Kids on the Block)wore them.
They had a huge following of fans, but sadly i wasn't one of them,
although i do vividly remember this fashion mistake, and i have to say, i think it scarred me for life.

Some people are trying to forget things like this... I don't see why you had to go and remind everyone!

I still say that NKOTB and Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees and NSync are the EXACT SAME GROUP!

From the same mould, definately. I think there's a production line somewhere...

I think the longest part of the process is coming up with a name for the group!

what'd you thik they do, write up the stupidest names they can think of and draw them from a hat? Oh, i heard something funny the other day! These news guys were intereviewing an Elvis impersonater, who'd just seen something by NSync on TV. Elvis: "I thought these were the NKOTB" News guy: "No, that's NSync" Elivis: "Yeah, in the sink and down the drain!"

Well, you can tell they're finding it harder and harder to come up with new names as they're having to make words up now! It's a definate case of style over content and a demonstration of the skills of the marketing department which is all very very sad.

Well how else can you explain the success of these groups?

Good point! I wonder if they do a survey and see what possible names are most attractive to girls aged 10-15?


NKOTB

Doug Dastardly

Of course they do. They must have done loads of research before putting all their eggs into one basket and mass producing so much of the same product! They'd not waste all that money unless there was a substantial return.

Really! Ever wonder how much those guys get paid not to sing anything lower than tenor?

Given the choice, how much do you think they would get not to sing at all smiley - winkeye.

Haha, I just read your entry. Of course teenage girls are far too busy screaming to actually hear the music. It's not the music that's important is it?

smiley - smiley Glad you liked it. I submitted it for rejection, I can only hope...Nah, the music doesn't matter a bit to 'em. I should know, I live with a fan of theirs...Posters covering her walls, knew all the songs, but couldn't tell you most of the words, knew all of the singer's lives by heart..It's pathetic...

Well, I'm convinced that it's all a kind of selective brain washing. There's got to be a reason for it, but one that I fail to understand.

Why would they brainwash the teenaged girls? Oh, wait, they already have them trained to attack any person who dares criticize their group...Great. An Orwellian society of girls aged 10-15, now there's a scary thought!

I'm sure it's more to do with money! You must have seen all that merchandising! I mean, all those posters etc... it's crazy! They sell more *stuff* than they do music!
