Can you believe that New Kids On The Block are getting back together?

New Kids on the Block sold millions of records in the late '80s and early '90s.

The boy band New Kids on the Block, which sold 70 million albums in the 1980s and early '90s, has reunited and plans to release a new album and go on tour. The reunion comes 20 years after the release of the group's multiplatinum album, "Hangin' Tough."

"The fan response to this has been incredible," band member Donnie Wahlberg told the Boston Herald.

Wahlberg said he was persuaded to get back together with his former bandmates -- Joey McIntyre, brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood -- when they decided to record new music. Wahlberg said he wrote 80 percent of the new material with McIntyre and Jordan Knight.

"I had no interest going out on a nostalgia tour and singing the same material," said Wahlberg, 38.

But he added: "We absolutely will do the old songs for sure."

Producer Maurice Starr formed the group in Boston in the 1980s, hoping to recreate the success he had with another teen group from Boston, New Edition.

At the height of their popularity, New Kids sold out world tours, marketed millions of dollars in merchandise and spawned a Saturday morning cartoon.

The group disbanded in 1994. Wahlberg has acted on television and in movies, while Jordan Knight, McIntyre and Wood released solo albums. Jonathan Knight became a real estate developer.

I almost puked last time around. I can't believe they may actually go through with it.

Who's cuter, Joey or Jordan?
I totally used to think that like, Jordan was the cutest, but then I found out he had like real bad social anxiety, and it totally took away from his mystique, or something.

Like, back off bitch...Joey's totally mine!

Seriously though, what makes them think this is a good idea? I thought they already tried this reunion thing a few years back, didn't they??? At any rate, they need to give it up. The fan girls who used to like them have matured and moved on to better music (hopefully), and they are too old too appeal to the current crop of middle-school aged girls who are into "boy bands". In fact, you can't even call them a boy band anymore...they are a middle-aged-men-trying-to-relive-a-long-dead-dream band.
