1. Backstreet Boys

Backstreet Boys may be the most iconic boy band, at least in the sense that if you asked anyone on the street to describe one, you'd basically get something closely resembling them. The five-piece scored several huge hits, but their 1999 smash "I Want It That Way" is a genre-transcending classic.
