In 2018, it's sometimes hard to not feel a little deprived when it comes to boy bands. Back in the '90s, the U.S. had the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, while the U.K. and Ireland had Take That, Boyzone and Westlife. It was a feast—nay, a cornucopia—of hair gel, dance moves, winks and fingers pointed at camera lenses.
The current undisputed boy band kings are BTS, though truthfully, with their trap beats and big hooks, they are significantly cooler than the cheesier boy bands of yore. But one boy band isn't enough to fill the void, so we're left to wish that these parody boy bands from television were real.
Boyz 4 Now, Bob's Burgers
Probably the greatest recurring characters on Bob's Burgers are Boyz 4 Now. With catchy tunes like "I Love U So Much (It's Scary)," "(I Wanna Hear Your) Secrets" and "Coal Mine," Boo Boo, Allen, Matt and Griffin aren't afraid to get real about love, the private things you do in the bathroom and the commercialization of Halloween. Sadly, Boyz 4 Now disbanded in 2016, after Boo Boo left to pursue a solo career, with "Tall Enuff 2 Ride Your Heart." Typical!
