Top 10 Best Boy Bands and Girl Groups of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Super Junior Super Junior is a South Korean boy band. Formed in 2005 by producer Lee Soo-man of S.M. Entertainment, the group comprised a total of thirteen members at its peak.

I have seen lots of bands, but Super Junior has a unique feeling when watching and listening to their songs.

You've completely stolen my heart, all of you. When I listen to your voices, I feel happy. Since the first time I've seen you, I was reborn. I felt that I was alive.

Super Junior is a talented and wonderful band. I hope they remain in first place. E.L.F. must ensure that Super Junior's name is always first.

2 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... read more

The first time I heard about them was their first X-Factor audition online. I fell in love! They are amazing. Their lyrics are so good, anyone can feel them. They are amazing in every way, and it's not just because they are famous. In the X-Factor, the songs they chose had meaning. They were amazing and still are.

Their style is what I love most. They are perfect in a human way (perfection isn't real). They are the best boy band in the world, and they should be in a higher position. They are amazing. Thank God this isn't Twitter, because it's hard to describe them in 140 characters. They are amazing, and I never want it to end. But it will, and we Directioners will have to face that truth. I'm really sorry for saying that, but it will hurt more if we don't accept it. Let's keep them together for now, and thank God they are together. I love them, and I am in love!

3 Little Mix Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Why aren't Little Mix number one? They are by far the best and do not deserve to be in any place but first. They show caring, protective, and true friendship. They keep their music varied (bubbly, fun, calm, peaceful) and they are smiley, positive girls. They also rock all the music out there. No one can beat Little Mix. They are the best singing group in the world, for sure.

I'm glad that they're one of the top 10 best boy/girl bands in the world, but I think they should be in a higher position. They're popular, their songs are perfect, and they're talented. They dance like professional dancers! I love Perrie's high note and Leigh-Anne's solo!

Whenever they win an award, it makes me so proud. I'm sure they have a bright future ahead of them!

4 Girls' Generation Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, was formed in South Korea, in 2007. The current members are Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. Jessica left in 2014. They are known as the second best selling girl group of all time, Korea’s National Girl Group, and one of... read more

Girls' Generation is the best! No one can beat them! Many people ask me why I listen to Girls' Generation when I don't know what they are speaking, but it's all about the talent here, not the language.

They are the queens of K-pop! Even though I don't understand Korean, I was really drawn by their talent in dancing, singing, rapping, and some of them act too!

They are the most beautiful girl group in K-pop. They have a lot of hits such as Gee, Genie, Hoot, OH!, Run Devil Run, Mr. Taxi, The Boys, Paparazzi, and more. They are cute, friendly, and sexy.

5 Blink Indonesia

Their voices are amazing. Their skills, especially their voices, are impressive. They are the best girl band in Indonesia. They consist of four girls, each with their own talent.

Blink is the best band from Indonesia. They have good voices and a good attitude. Blink, we love you.

6 Big Bang Big Bang is a South Korean boy band formed by YG Entertainment. The group consists of 4 members: G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung.
7 Big Time Rush

Best boy band with quality music and a positive message for the kids out there. No inappropriate language in their songs either! They have worked hard to get their name through the show and deserve double credit for that.

This band has been on television. When I first saw them on TV, I fell in love with them. They really inspire me, like One Direction does. They are not splitting up yet, but One Direction is splitting up next year, 2015. That is sad.

They are the best. So humble and nice despite all the fame. I love you, BTR. #rusher_for_life

8 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.

No one can be compared to them. They are legendary. Their songs are the best, their vocal harmony is unique, and they produce their own music. They are the best-selling boy band in history.

Doesn't matter if they're this far down on the list. They are on top forever, that's for sure!

My favorite American boy bands:
1. Backstreet Boys
3. New Kids On The Block (More 80s/early 90s. I only really know "Hangin' Tough," which was early 90s, like the British boy band Bros, which was 80s/early 90s, but are back with "When Will I Be Famous.")

All-time best boy band. Don't agree? Listen to "Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way" three times. See if you like it.

9 Wonder Girl
10 SM*SH
The Contenders
11 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.

EXO is the only Korean-Chinese boy group that has sold over 10 million albums for XOXO in 2013. EXO is divided into two groups: EXO-M and EXO-K. EXO-M works in China while EXO-K works in Korea. Even though EXO-M works in China, there are two Korean members.

The leader of EXO-K is Suho, who is also the overall leader of EXO. The leader of EXO-M is Wu Yi Fan, also known as Kris, a Chinese-Canadian boy.

13 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony was an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

Oh my God. For crying out loud, why on Earth are all these other bands above Fifth Harmony? They're new and don't have many fans yet, but one day they're going to be bigger than all those other stars like Katy Perry, Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber. This band should at least be in the top ten. I mean, come on!

One Direction is number one? They're so overrated and they think they're all that! They're just five boys, and I'm surprised they have so many fans.

Fifth Harmony is the best girl group ever! Forget K-pop, Fifth Harmony is a talented group of girls who can actually sing. Big Time Rush isn't even a real band. It's a TV show! If that weak BTR stuff goes above this, I will throw my computer in the trash. The Jonas Brothers? Same thing. Fifth Harmony is amazing. Just listen to Bo$$! Best song ever!

And seriously, 1D, you make a song called Best Song Ever to get attention? Anyone could make a song called Best Song Ever and it would never be the best. Now I am done here. I have one thing to say to Directioners: Screw you!

14 2NE1 2NE1 was a South Korean girl group consisting of Bom, Dara, CL, and formerly Minzy. The group was formed by YG Entertainment in 2009.

Most internationally renowned Asian girl band. Each member has their unique talent, charisma, and swag. They are so much better in live performances than any other K-pop girl group. They are not stuck in one concept, kind of melody, or type of music. Every comeback is a daebak performance.

Love 2NE1 so much. They are great artists and very talented!

15 SHINee Shinee is a South Korean boy band formed by SM Entertainment in 2008. The group is composed of four members: Onew, Key, Minho, and Taemin. Originally a five-piece group, vocalist Jonghyun died in December 2017.

I love SHINee. I hope SHINee wins!

16 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.

I just can't believe that Westlife is at number 26! They have unique voices, amazing songs, kind and funny personalities, many records, handsome faces, and more! How can Westlife be at number 26, behind Korean and Indonesian boy bands?

17 BTS BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed in Seoul in 2013. RM is the leader and the other members are V, Jimin, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook

Excuse me, but BTS is the most famous K-pop band in the world and also the first one to be on an American TV show. So, I think BTS should be at least in the top 5, better than any other K-pop bands.

I respect all other groups' success. However, with the success BTS has gained after coming from nearly nothing, I personally believe they should at least be in the top 20.

18 Spice Girls The Spice Girls are an English pop girl group formed in 1994. The group consists of Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Mel B (Scary Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice).
19 2PM

They have good looks, amazing dance moves, and voices. They always give their best to our fans.

They are the hottest boys ever.

They always have unique moves.

Love you, 2PM!

20 Cimorelli

Beautiful and so talented!

I hear their music every day!
