2 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys

Don't agree? Listen to their songs such as: "Show me the meaning of being lonely", "Incomplete", "Never Gone", "Unmistakable", "Inconsolable", "Show 'em what you're made of". Those are just a few examples of the deep messages within Backstreet's song lyrics. You have to understand that their music has come a long way and continues to influence groups of all ages.

They are awesome. Show me the meaning, As Long As You Love Me, Incomplete and still counting. They are the best.

The are THE BEST... No words to say...

3 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a 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 more.

They are extremely inspirational while being pleasing to the teenage female eye. You probably have no idea how many girls and maybe even guys have problems out there. I've heard SO MANY stories of teens who have been going through a tough time, just like the boys. Listening to them and what they've been through has helped them as well. I think One Direction is a 100% Influential band.

They inspire me and tons of other girls, and they influenced you to comment here even if it was hate.

One direction copies music they can't make their own

1d is a boy band odf the uneverst

10 Take That Take That Take That are an English pop group from Manchester, formed in 1989. The group currently consists of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, and Mark Owen.

The best band in the world.. They Rule...!

They have influenced other boy bands since their sucess in the 90's. Without Take That there would have been no Boyzone, Westlife, Five, Blue, The Wanted, One Direction, etc, etc.

Well.. EVERY pop band from Britain female/male has cited TT as inspiration and most across Europe.
They were the inspiration for Boyzone and highly cited by Backstreet Boys and NSYNC who had witnessed early on the dominance in Europe and Asia first hand (Backstreet Boys only became a big act after Take That departed and struggled during TT presence/domination).

The Contenders

11 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.
