Methodology: According to Billboard, these are the ten biggest boybands from 1987 to 2012. They are who I used, because I don’t have time to sit here and go through every boyband in history (although in case you were wondering, the best member of O-Town is 110% Ashley Parker Angel. Jacob doesn’t count because he is a white guy with dreds.)

And, no: The Beatles are not a boyband.
