    Please don´t define the beatles or the beach boys as “boy bands” – while technically all male they are not “boy bands”.

    Beach boys were not a boy band. That lame sappy crap started in the late 90s.

    And group of cute guys that girls are infatuated with and assembled by record labels? The Monkees were the first.

    If she had a brain, she’d be dangerous.

    Hmmm. Can’t see myself telling Dr. Brian May that he was in a boy band…

    A boy band is typically young men (teen or 20’s) who sing in harmony and dance, but usually don’t play instruments. According to Wiki, “the Beatles set a precedent for boy bands to follow both in terms of marketing to young girls and certain aesthetic and musical conventions.” Sorry, but maybe the Beatles weren’t exactly a boy band, but they were very close to one.
    It doesn’t matter how big and legendary a music group is, they may have still started out as a “boy band” (as much as it hurts to admit it).

    The “Boy Band” topic will keep Holly busy for years! And, of course, she’ll whine to Ms. Wingit about needed more time to actually write the paper so she can do the “proper” research!

    Actually, boy bands started back in the 60’s, eg The Monkees. Wikipedia lists some examples by decade: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_band

    All your comments about “Boy Band” history be great for Holly to write on. Holly is only thinking as a teen girl. Joan will help her.

    The problem is she may not know much about them other than her impressions of their looks, which wouldn’t make much of a paper.

    Hmnn the Monkeys were a Fake band…. at the beginning they (except Micheal Nesmith) couldn’t play any instruments or even sing their “own” songs. It was all done by studio musicians some of whom had even auditioned for the parts (Steve Stills).

    Well you could do contract analysis such as distribution of wealth – cause and effect on breakup when one members becomes more popular than the others – what happens to the other ones. A topic can be a serious as you want to make it.
