The Top Ten

1 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

One direction is the most amazing boyband ever, they are cute, they sing really well, and their songs are just perfect! I can honestly say I am a Directioner! I think that they will become one of the greatest artist ever. Because on their own they are good, but when they start singing together they are just AMAZING!

I knew one direction would be in the top 20! They are one of the best new fresh boy bands we have had in a very long while! They are so young and have such an amazing future a head of them. The fact that they have one of the biggest fan bases worldwide prove how good they are!

They are really amazing especially zayn, he really makes their band more alive when he sings, his the human echo.

Why are the untalented people #1 when 21 Pilots is a thing? - lovefrombadlands

3 The Jackson 5 The Jackson 5 The Jackson 5, or Jackson Five, also known as The Jacksons in later years, is an American popular music group. Formed in 1963 under the name the Jackson Brothers, the founding members were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon.

Although The Beatles may get the most votes, I do believe that the Jackson 5 Were great performers as they had great dance routine's as well as singing.

All individually were/are still talented, their songs are still very popular to this day, I at least here one jackson 5 song in so many hollywood films (commercials too) tito had more talent in his pinky than most of the members of 1D (I'll give harry and zayn some credit), their routines were always exceptionally flawless, and hell michael jackson was in it! They get an automatic win for that! Owner of the best selling record of all time, Thriller, was the MOST innovative artist, King of Pop, must I go on? And the fact that this group molded him into the incredible man he was, no group could be better.

The Jackson 5 worked beyond hard, and they didn't take the easy way out.

Great band... - EliHbk

The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take ...read more.

I'm a huge directioner but I think that 5sos should be on the countdown too because even if they aren't a boy band they are really good.

These boys really amazing! I think they should be at least 1st or 2nd I mean they are too awesome!

I love all of these guys like they are them selves their own person and they all are best friends Luke, Michael, Calum, and Ashton and they are all pretty good looking like wow how can that happen but unfortunately it did and I also like One Direction but I just love 5 Seconds Of Summer

I just loveee this band
They are amazing and should be in top 5. Their songs are relatable. I ❤️ them so much!

5 N Sync

Best choreography, best outfits (even though the 90's style was weird), best voices, best routines, best videos, most talented members (Justin Timberlake, I mean come on), and best songs. No boyband these days even come close to that. I honestly don't understand how One Direction is 2nd and Nsync is 6th. "No Strings Attached" sold 2.42 million copies on it's first week while the most albums One Direction has sold is 546,000 in it's first week. Also Nsync is rated the 8th best selling boyband ever (which is quite impressive considering they've only released 3 albums, while One Direction didn't even make the top 10 and they've released 5 albums and didn't have any competition whereas Nsync was rivaled with Backstreet Boys and other boybands during the 90s. All One Direction does is run around the stage, pointing, singing, and looking like they came out of a Gap commercial. Nsync is dancing, running around the stage, adding dialogue to their songs, involving the audience, AND singing. ...more

Great voices, catchiest tunes & awesome dance moves! N'Sync COME BACK!

How the heck is NSync not number two on this list? I can deal with them being behind the Backstreet Boys, nothing less. Especially not behind One Direction and especially not NUMBER SIX! These boys were a part of my childhood and I will always love them. Great music and amazing men!

So much better than most of the bands out there.

8 New Kids on the Block New Kids on the Block New Kids on the Block is an American boy band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band currently consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood.

Half of this list wouldn't be here if it werent for NKOTB.

They have proven to be the best by having such a successful comeback 20 years later. How many boy bands have done that? And their devotion and love of their fans cannot be compared! I say it proud when I declare myself a Block Head for life! Whoot Whoot! :-)

I love em 5 guys, so cute and talented! Plus they're touring w Backstreet Boys nw and the 2 boy bands make a awesome collaboration

They should at least be in the top three

9 Boyz II Men Boyz II Men Boyz II Men is an American R&B vocal group, best known for emotional ballads and a cappella harmonies.

Harmony like no other. Most albums sold by any band.

You are put at number 12 because the new generation missed the opportunity to listen to the greatest voices of this band. I salute you, we salute you.

These guys sing better than all the other boy bands combined, and with perfect harmony.

#1 #1 come on people.

10 Blue Blue

Current boy bands and artists should really look up to BLUE because they're music's seriously FANTABULOUS, catchy and with meaning! Plus there's Lee, Anthony, Duncan and Simon, what else d'ya want! I'm so glad they made a come back (':

I just found them on YouTube and once I listened to their songs, I fell in love with the hot Blue band! I'm relieved they got back together, my life just got better. I can literally listen to the hot, talented, and handsome singers my whole day! BLUE IS THE BEST!

This song should be at the number 1 spot, They are better than all of those at the top.

The Contenders

11 Jonas Brothers Jonas Brothers

Such an amazing band! Not only are their voices amazing, their lyrics deep, their looks gorgeous and their personalities so kind, but they write all of their own songs, and the music too! They all have big hearts and make some of the deepest, most beautiful music. They are so talent, they can all play the piano and guitar! And little nick who wrote most of their hits when we was only 14 - can also play the drums!

HOW CAN THEY NOT BE NUMBER 1? THEY ARE THE BEST. NICK'S VOICE IS UNIQUE AND EVERYBODY KNOWS JUST WATCH HIM SING "HAVEN'T MET YOU YET" AND "WHO I AM" AND JOE'S VOICE IS so HOT AND AMAZING AND KEVIN IS SO ENERGETIC AND ROCKS THE GUITAR. JONAS BROTHERS ALSO WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS AND PLAY THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS.

Jonas Brothers are the most talented Band of the world. Three Brothers from New Jersey with million of fans around the world. And Their Music make people happy.

They had music on T.V. and live. T
hey can sing act and play instaments.

12 The Wanted The Wanted The Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

Besides the fame and everything. They are a band who absolutely love their fans and show appreciation to them in every way they could with weekly mailers and videos. They would come out to their fans and give hugs and interact with them. Just generally very nice and sweet lads. Not many celebrities do this for their fans. They are very honest people which some people do not like about them however, it just shows they are being themselves and speak their opinions.

The WANTED don't only make great music they are also great people and aren't just pretty faces like one direction. They are different and amazing and I know that some people don't like them but I do and always will!

I LOVE THE WANTED! And all you lot should to because they are AMAZING! If you have not yet heard one of their songs then go on you tube and check them out! Every single one of them are absoulutely gerogus! But my favourite has to be the youngest and cheekiest, NATHAN SYKES! Seriously guys check them out, I am telling you that you will like them and if you don't then - no affence but there must be something wrong with you! Xx Please it will be worth it! X

Guys, no offense, but I've never heard of them other than that they are a wannabe One Direction (who deserve #1). I dunno if they deserve to be in this list.

14 Monkees

Amazing and one of the most important bands of all history, incredible comedy and WONDERFUL music, sure, they used studio musicians on the first 2 LP, but hey, Headquarters is one of the top 5 greatest albums ever, still making impact today. The only band I would ever dare to compare with THE Beatles.

The Monkees are an awesome band - Judo05

Beautiful band, great harmonies, just a bit like the Beatles, but they are still fantastic.

Fantastic songs and great stage presence

EXO a group with twelve members but with one heart. They work hard for their fans despite of their injuries. They make us, their fans, proud. Even though there are haters, they continue to work hard and prove that they really are one of the BEST BOYBANDS out there.

16 Shinee Shinee

I love them! They are hot, sexy, and stylish they have great music that easy to dance too I hope they make it international some day

The 5 shining boys have more achieved then most of the Britain babies. Super Junior, Fighting. SHINee, Fighting!

What can I say about SHINee? Their names say it all! Onew, Jonghyun, Minho, Key and Taemin are not only five singers in a band but are five member of a family. Moreover, they shine in everything from variety to dramas. Also, both their dance choreography and vocals are out of the world. Not only that but they have never ever lip-sync in any of their performance! So therefore, they are a band that I cherish and look up to the most!

They will shine forever. SHINEE fighting.I love you shinee

18 The Vamps The Vamps The Vamps are a British pop rock band consisting of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.

I love the vamps! Besides 5SOS and 1D they are awesome! So talented! Catchy music, I bet they'll be recognized for it soon!

These boys may not be as popular but man if you listen to them you would understand why they've come so far. like really they are so sweet and great friends with awesome aussie and british bands (1D and 5SOS)

I agree that the vamps are superb... They should be in top 5... But please one direction is not bad influences... They are the best and will be... I should agree the vamps are really good

They are very talented

19 Union J Union J Union J are an English boy band consisting of members Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett, Jaymi Hensley, Casey Johnson and previously George Shelley.

I KNOW that UNION J is the best boy band. They are actually #1 but they are a new boy band and they are just getting started! What I know is that there voices are VERY BEAUTIFUL and there music ALWAYS touches my heart! I know that 1D is really famous & I know why! They just had a good timing! But if you just listen to them live, only 2 of them can sing & 3 DON'T! I know 100% that one day Union J will stand in the top 10 boybands & even maybe the FIRST BOY BAND, and why? The answer is simple... ALL FOUR CAN ACTUALLY SING LIVE! They have funny & beautiful personalities. & for the Directioners this is my openion that not all of them can sing live, not only my openion but a lot of people think that too, so don't get me wrong. UNION J IS VERY TALENTED and if you don't believe me, go to YouTube and listen to one of there songs LIVE! Then you will see how wonderful they can actually sing!

Union J is such a true boy band. They are honest in their music and you can actually feel what message they try to get across. Even if they didn't win in XFactor 2012 I know that they will be big. They have already released 2 singles called Carry You and Beautiful Life.

To me union j are 1st, yeah I am a huge jcat, and when directioners and other fan bases call them union j it makes me so angry that I think of one direction and other bands as a dot! I know other fan bases will disagree with me on this and to be honest I don't really care! The first time I saw triple j and just monkey loving George, I I instantly fell in love. So I have been there from the start along with a billion other jcats. I know union j aren't the next Beatles for all you, they are to us jcats. Union j don't copy one direction for all you liars out there thinking it! They did say they are the next one direction. But they didn't mean personality and crap they meant in the charts hitting number one! Get union j to the top!

Yeah.. Union J is also a good boy band... They sing good songs but not more then one direction and 5sos... But they are very.V. V cute and handsome boys

20 McFly

They are amazing and I never thought that a band could help you get through things by just singing. They are all great guys and they will forever be my favorite band, so mcfly all the way!

They're not a boyband, not in the sense of the other 'bands' in this category. They're so much better than that, they still have haters 8 years on but they are just ignorant of McFly's most recent work. The days of writing songs like Obviously and All about you are long gone. Check them out now people and live, you're sure to be a fan soon if you do.

They are an amazing band. Their songs are amazing. Their songs cheer me up whenever I'm feeling low I just listen to mcfly and I'm happy again. Even their old songs are still so popular with fans. They appeal to all ages. I've loved them since the begining and they have only gotten better

This is love! Go go go goo! FIGHTING
