Seriously…what’s going on with these New Kids on the Block revival/reunion/whatever it is? They’re pushing 40, so they’re hardly “kids” and they’re not fooling anyone going by “NKOTB” either. They should change their name to “Middle Aged Guys Having Midlife Crisis” which can eventually become “Old Guys in the Home”.
You can listen to their “hot” new single…
I’m not a big fan of the revolving background rhythm, the vocals, the lyrics, or the melody, but other than that, it’s OK. They’re better dressers than they were in the 80’s. I admit it, I was a fan when I was in fifth or sixth grade. I even had one of those ginormous New Kids On The Block pins, which I wore proudly. But then I grew up and moved on to the “90210” guys.
Then & Now: Man, I can’t believe I ever had a crush on these guys. I thought Jordan Knight was the hottest thing in the whole world. I love those wiggly suspenders though.
What’s next, a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Reunion or bringing M.C. Hammer out of retirement?
