22 Big Bang

Probably the hippest boyband in the world right now.

Big bang is so strong and fierce and their songs are the most addictive in the whole wide world.

Best of the best. so good, so talented, I just love Big Bang. Very talented. Again, look to Seoul for incredible talent. Not Hollywood.

Loads of views on youtube

23 Infinite

They are just one of the most hardworking idols I've ever seen. They love their fans a lot. I don't know what to say just once u get know them for real u won't be able to leave them fandom. I JUST LOVE THEM! And I really want them to get the attention the deserve for their hard work and talents.

I loVe INfinite forever!

Go infinite!

Because even that they're famous they're still act just a normal people even they're off or on stage, AND if they're in front of anyone they're friendly/Kind/Respectful even they are IDOL (i'm just being honest I am not theire real fan but I'm coming there )

They're just the most awesome group out there. Too underrated and wish more people could see how amazing and beautiful their songs and dances are.

25 Jackson 5

The Jackson 5 are defiantly not 21 they are quite good actually. Better than one direction that's sure. I love Michael Jackson he's the best if you go on to top ten male singers I can prove it.

They are just a classic that is one of the best bands ever! Including two famous people today. Michael and Randy Jackson

They are the greatest of all time... truly the most talented boy band in history. Fact!

This is UNFAIR Justice should be made, The Jackson 5 are way better than that One Direction
People consider this, Unfair that the band that introduced the legendary Michael Jackson is 24

26 EXO EXO Exo is a South Korean-Chinese boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively.

12 angels sent from exo planet to protect tree of life and ruin our lives. Their singing will take you too another level and so will their dancing. All 12 are unique to themselves in their own quirky way. They sing in Korean. So what? They're music speaks for itself! Anyway this ot12 are so lovable, talented, cute, dorky, derpy, etc. you can't help but not love them! - daedonut

Exo is a South-Korean Boy Band came from SM Entertainment. They had 8 Koreans and 4 Chinese Members. They are divided into 2 sub- groups namely EXO-K and EXO-M. For me they are the best Boy Band as of this ERA, no offense meant people. Okay? I just say that they are because they just debuted last year and they gain popularity and awards in just a matter of time. The said group are not just compose of 12 HOT, SEXY, MIND-BLOWING, and HANDSOME MEN, they are also compose of 12 SMART, TALENTED, KIND, FRIENDLY and GOD- FEARING MEN. They sang songs in different languages just like Chinese, Korean, English and even Filipino songs and I bet they are good on it, sounds angelic and they are not that obvious if they sang it even if they are Koreans and Chinese. That's why I really really love them despite of all the false news that bashers were spreading.

EXO are really talented they trained for almost 7 yrs. just to know how to dance, sing, host, and even spoke fluent language both ...more

They are good in looks and they have amazing talents. Each member is literally god gifted. Even though 2 members have already left they are still continuing with what ever they have. Each member cares about the fans and the fandom and also each member has a different style of showing themselves. I believe exo should have been at least 5th place.

They won more than 70 award in 4 years
The most famous boy group in kpop
Their songs will stuck in your head forever
They have the biggest fandom named exo-ls
Their conserts sold out in moments
They have songs in korean, Chinese and japanese versions
They never use extra dancers their dancing is enough
Sometimes they eat two meals in two countries in one day
And they can act too
They won the biggest award for 4 times in a row and they are the only ones how done that
The only other group that broke their records are thim

28 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

The reason that the Beatles is #1 is probably that people attach the term boy band with low quality. Why then would you think of the Beatles? But they are definitely the most famous band of all time.

The first "boy band" and still the greatest, I thing the Beatles are so low on this list because people forgot they started out as a simple boy band. - Doom

They should be in number one because all of the boy bands they are the best.

Wow, this should seriously be number one. Not 1D. - eventer51314

30 IM5

I have loved them ever since Disney dudes especially Dalton I cried when he left but Fly Away Heros is AMAZING too

I got to see the in person... and when I saw Will I forgot how to speak English... before that I had tripped in front of Dana... if that wasn't bad enough Cole saw and pointed it out to me and 5 other fan girls

I really hope they get bigger and go on tour again

Ever since I've discovered them, I can't get enough of them. Their songs are amazing - especially Superman and Everything About you - and they're funny and they are so talented and they always make time for their fans. They're just that awesome. I love them so much!

Im5 is a great band some of the music they do is different than the music you would typically hear from a boy band they are all extremely talented in there own ways and are all hilarious and very nice especially Dalton if you have not already listen to there song superman it is great.

I'm obsessed with there song 'Touchdown Dance' Dana is from the same place I am and sheared the same birthday as me. Also Cole is a Leftie like me. I LOVE AND MISS IM5! 😭💜 once a Fiver always a Fiver.

32 BTS

Bangtan boys is a group of seven with ages ranged from 18-24. They have a wide range of song types, and yet they always keep their style. It is always BTS. They write their own songs and lyrics, and they are terribly talented dancers. Their songs always have a mix of rap and vocal. They put their heart and soul into everything they do. You can tell they take their jobs seriously, but they have such fun. Even though their songs are in Korean, you can't help but feel the emotions in their songs and get caught up in their performances. They have their sexy/serious sides and they playful happy sides. Basically, they're the whole package. They always let their fans know that they care about them.

BTS might seem like the stereotypical boy band but they are much more. If you can get past the language barrier, see their personalities, and understand their music, they will steal your heart

BTS is a combination of your sexy boy/man, your little brother, and your older sister. All of them can have their sexy moments, but most of the time they are little balls of energy, and sometimes, they can't be bothered (MinYoongi). But the dancing, singing, and craziness is something everyone should give a chance to watch

They should be in the top ten seriously they are awesome

40 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

What the heck has happened to good taste in music?

Imagine Dragons, consisting of vocalist Dan Reynolds, percussionist Daniel Platzman, guitarist Wayne Sermon, and bassist Ben McKee, are surely one of the most heartfelt, meaningful, upbeat, and tasteful boy bands of all time.

I would like to say a few things.

1. I am 11 years old, and even so, I have a very mature and tasteful personality. Listen to a few songs of Imagine Dragons's if you don't believe my brief essay.

2. Imagine Dragons's songs are heartfelt and meaningful. Ask me to prove it, and you'll get a retort of several songs such as I Bet My Life (Dan reflecting on his unstable parental relationship), Demons (written to help cancer charities), Shots (Dan apologizing to those he may have hurt), and Radioactive (Dan overcoming several massive problems in his life). There are more, but this will take too long if I do that.

3. Most people don't know what meaningful music is. Well, if you want an ...more

One direction better than Imagine Dragons? Where is justice? -nowhere - LZN

All songs are great of imagine dragons if you won't belive go watch any of there songs you will become there fan

Imagine dragons, is a amazing boy band, is very very original, is better that one direction

I love imagine dragons I love ethan
