These so-called boy bands have proven to be quite the craze for young teenage girls who invest their time creating loyal followings (fan bases) for them by promoting their albums, making signs and waiting in lines for hours just to see them in concert. Each generation has their fair share of successful boy bands. For me, it was *Nsync and for my sister ,it’s One Direction.
