Give anything 20 years...

...and it comes back in style.

Just ask NKOTB. Summertime is their new hit. It was #1 on VH1's Top 20 Videos this morning.

Never did I think I'd see the day when NKOTB was back together, let alone back on top of ANY pop chart.

I never thought I'd see people in leg warmers or leggings again either.

Just further illustrates how STUPID society/pop culture is!

No offense if anyone reading this LOVES NKOTB!

well, that certainly dampers my enthusiasm for the fact that i am TOTALLY GOING TO SEE THEM when they come to providence in november.

i'd actually be quite insulted, but i didn't get to see them when they were popular in the 90s, so i am considering this one of Those Things that Must Be Done to help reconcile the fact that while i am no longer a kid, i AM a reasonably intelligent adult with disposable income and a weakness for "the right stuff."

actually, i'm an adult with disposable income and a weakness for "funky, funky christmas," but that gem probably won't hit the set list. :)

lol. I seriously loved the Christmas album. And although I was lucky enough to make it to a New Kids show the first go 'round, I TOTALLY wish I could go to the reunion tour! If only I had dispensable income. Not only would I go to the show...but I'd come to Providence to see it with you.

Seeing them was my first concert ever. I think I was like 10 and my dad took me. I remember being totally embarrassed because they were doing all kinds of pelvic thrusts, and there I was with my dad in his fanny pack. Which he still wears to this day.

How could you go wrong with lyrics like these...

"I think about you in the summertime. And all the good times we had, baby. It’s been a few years and I can’t deny the thought of you still makes me crazy."

Same here Joey, same here.

lol Rachel...I would have to agree. It has been a few years, but Joey is still my fave. And Danny is till very scary to look at.
