Most Influential Boy Bands

The Top Ten
Westlife Westlife were an Irish boy band, formed in July 1998 and disbanded in June 2012. Originally signed by Simon Cowell and managed by Louis Walsh, the group's final line-up consisted of Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, and Shane Filan.

Westlife is the best boy band in the world for me... They really diserve for being most influential boy band because their songs are great to hear and very memorable once you play it. I've never seen any failure in this boy band. They are very successful because they're so popular in world wide. One of my biggest dream is to meet them someday, I'll go to Ireland and I want to meet them one by one personally. Especially I will be the most happy person if when I meet my idol Mr. Nicky Byrne, it will be the day that I will be treassure and memorable for me :) Westlife is the best! Even they are already split up, for me they will be in my heart forever and never be forgotten. I Love them so much... :) ♡

Greatest band ever! I grow up listening to their songs such a great privilege to be a fan! God! I just love them so much! Can't wait for the reunion concert! I just want to make this out! ILOVEWESTLIFE! I LOVE NICKY some say love it is a river but I say love it is WESTLIFE! true fan can only know and relate in the lyrics

Westlife is number 1 for me forever, there music was my comfort throughout my cancer treatment and I will always be grateful to them for that, they are truly an amazingly talented bunch of guys. And it also doesn't hurt that they are all totally gorgeous. xxx

No Words are needed they were & always will be the best, they're very sadly & sorely missed as a band but I'm delighted for them all doing amazingly well with their solo careers & they'll carry on doing well wishing the guys & their families all the happiness health & success 2016 & onwards! #ProudLifer #ProudFilaner

Backstreet Boys The Backstreet Boys are an American vocal group, formed in Orlando, Florida in 1993. The group consists of AJ McLean, Howie D., Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.

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...

They are truly amazing and I think that they should be #1 on the list so many of their songs are so influential and inspirational and they are still going strong for 22 years!

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.

One direction copies music they can't make their own

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

I don't get it. How is 1D INSPIRING? - Minecraftcrazy530

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 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.

Seriously, 1D shouldn't be on here. Have they made albums as influential as Abbey Road (In my opinion, the best Beatles album and the best album of all time! Just my opinion. ), the White Album, Sgt. Pepper's, or Rubber Soul? Name one album. You can't cause 1D is just a crappy boy band with no talent and will not do anything to revolutionize music. But The Beatles did. For example, that dirty guitar in Revolution created hard rock. Helter Skelter created heavy metal. And The Beatles influenced most artists after them to take up the sword of music, One Direction among them. And who did One Direction influence? Nobody! The Beatles deserve the top spot and although they ended their career as a rock band, they started off as a boy band and paved the way for other boy bands. 1D are not even halfway close to the influence of the Beatles. The Beatles were, are, and will be the best for centuries to come and will continue to influence people. One Direction will be forgotten in a few years and ...more

They should be number one
