Boy Band顧名思義是由幾位男生組成的樂隊。在90年代早期到新世紀中期的歐美樂壇中Boy Band一直是最受歡迎的模式，也出過不少組合。代表組合有BACKSTREET BOYS、NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK、BLUE、BOYZONE、WESTLIFE等組合,由于經濟人的包裝使得90年代后期boyband式的組合在歐美樂壇中不斷涌現,所唱歌曲也形成了具有較統一風格的Boy Band式曲風,是20紀末較有影響力的一類曲風。A boy band (or boyband) is loosely defined as a vocal group consisting of young male singers, usually in their teenage years or in their twenties at the time of formation. Being vocal groups, most boy band members do not play musical instruments, either in recording sessions or on stage, making the term somewhat of a misnomer. However, exceptions do exist. Most boy bands dance as well as sing, usually giving highly choreographed performances.Some such bands form on their own. They can evolve out of church choral or gospel music groups, but are often created by talent managers or record producers who hold auditions. Due to this and their general commercial orientation towards a female audience of preteens, teenyboppers, or teens, the term may be used with negative connotations in music journalism. Boy bands are similar in concept to their counterparts, girl groups.
