Demographics & Psychology of Boy Bands

All of a sudden boy bands became such a big thing again. People wonder why girls are so crazy about boy bands. Maybe it’s because of their good looks or their songs. But it’s not just their pretty faces that get them to where they are; it’s their fans. Boy bands usually market to the female population between the ages 10 through 19. Now, the way I see it is that many of the teen girls say the boy band has “saved their life.” I wonder why that is. For example, One Direction the biggest boy band in the world has had a big effect on the female teen age population. No other boy band has caused so much hysteria beside the Beatles and that was all the way in the 60s.

According to the article from the Guardian it states that, “Psychologists say girls get together and scream at boys as an expression of their fears about reaching sexual maturity. They can't imagine feeling desire for anyone, least of all the kids at school, so they fixate on unreachable, unthreatening stars – usually clean-cut, pretty lads – and practice feeling lovelorn and rejected in a group therapy context instead.” What that means is that girls prefer so “in love” or obsessed with a boyband then with a real boy from school. Also a neuroscientist explains that these girls get shivers, they scream, and cry but that doesn’t mean that the girls are crazy they are just excited.

I think that the type of girl that listens to boy bands is someone who is shy, not very confident, or maybe feeling sad. Like I said in the first paragraph, some girls have stated that boy bands have saved their life. On the social media website Twitter, I have seen many teenaged girls express their feelings about boy bands and what they did for them.

N Sync

N sync, a all American boyband from Orlando, Florida started in the mid 90's. Members being Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass. the boys of N sync did not have instant success it took them a while to reach fame. Then in 1998 they released their first album *NSYNC, which was the album to get them to the beginning of their career. Later in 2000 they released their 2nd album No Strings Attached.They had hits like 'Bye Bye Bye' and 'Its Gonna Be Me' topped the charts. Later on they seemed to be having problems and they later broke up.After the break up, a few of the member tried going solo but it didn't work out for some. The only one that kind of did have success was Justin Timberlake.

In 2013 during the MTV VMA, N sync made an appearance as a group again during Justin Timberlake's solo performance. They preformed together a few of their hits from back in the day. The performance as a group only lasted about four minutes. Then Justin continued to preform by himself. Even though the performance didn't last long old fans on N sync were very happy this happened.
