New Kids on the Block pay tribute to history of boy bands
Get ready to make some noise and share some laughs as the New Kids on the Block go back to school in the new video for “Boys in the Band.”
The tongue-in-cheek vid highlights the band’s newest track, taking a new generation on a journey through the history of boy bands in a classroom session.
Pop-culture music icons Lance Bass, Naughty By Nature, Debbie Gibson and Bell Biv Devoe of New Edition all appear in the fun romp.

Donnie Wahlberg says of the new video: “I wrote the lyrics to the song as a homage to boy bands, but you can’t truly pay tribute to boy bands, visually, without a little self-deprecating humor. Nobody has thicker skin than boy band members.”
NKOTB will embark on The MixTape Tour with guests Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Debbie Gibson and Tiffany this summer. The tour makes a June 23 stop at Pittsburgh’s PPG Paints Arena.
