Exclamation What's up with boy bands?

What's the deal with these no-talent boy bands who sell millions of records, despite having no real musical talent? How do the Backstreet Boys, N'Sync and the other garbage bands sell so many albums? Are there really that many 13 year old girls in the world, or are there closet Backstreet fans among the adult ranks? Opinions please.

They obviously sell so many records because so many people like them; "A place for everything and everything in its place" and all that...

Mebbe its cause they all look like those Ken dolls you can buy... They all look the same, they all look like every 13 year old gals dream. Why not buy their record if theyre hot? You dont need to listen to it, its just to show that youre cool and you know who they are.

They sell a lot of albums because a lot of people are too dumb & mindless to realize that there's far better music out there.

Either that, or maybe they actually like that music? Its hard to fathom, but people really do like it. They can have it...
