Larger than life : a history of boy bands from NKOTB to BTS

Sherman, Maria (author.).

Summary

Summary: Long after Beatlemania came and went, a new, unstoppable era of the boy band emerged. Fueled by good looks and even greater hooks, the pop phenomenon that dominated the '80s, '90s, and 2000s has left a long-lasting mark on culture, and it's time to celebrate it. Larger Than Life is the definitive guide to boy bands, delivered with a mix of serious obsession and tongue-in-cheek humor. Informative, affectionate, funny, and never ever fan-shaming, this is the only book of its kind.
