What, you expected us to choose between the twins? Did anyone prefer one brother over the other or did they come as a package in your mind? Bros of course also originally had Craig Logan as a member but he quit in 1987 after struggling to cope with being in the limelight.

New Kids on the Block consisted of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg (brother of actor Mark Wahlberg), and Danny Wood. We remember Joey being the big favourite here, but we could easily have also included Jordan Knight. Who was on your bedroom wall?

Simon is of course best known as the lead singer, lyricist and musician of the band Duran Duran, but ok, we admit that we’re stretching it slightly calling them a ‘boy band’.
