New Kids on the Block was a boy band that enjoyed enormous success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Assembled in Boston in 1984 by producer Maurice Starr, the members consisted of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood. The group went on to sell over 70 million albums worldwide[1], generated hundreds of millions of dollars in concert revenues, and paved the way for acts like Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.

History

Early years

In the early 1980s, Maurice Starr discovered R&B/Pop quintet New Edition, and guided their early success. After breaking ties with them, Starr and his business partner, Mary Alford, sought to create a white counterpart act. Auditions were held around Boston, at which some 500 teenaged boys auditioned. Among them was 15-year-old Donnie Wahlberg, who immediately impressed Starr and Alford with his singing/dancing skills, and would become the first member. Wahlberg assisted in helping to recruit other local talents to audition. Among them were his younger brother Mark and his best friend Danny Wood, who was a skilled breakdancer. He coaxed schoolmate and neighbourhood friend Jordan Knight, who sang an exceptional falsetto, into auditioning for the band, and he was immediately accepted. Jonathan, Jordan's 16 year old brother, was also recommended to Starr by Jordan, and he made the group on the same day as Danny. Maurice Starr is a Boston-based musician and producer. ...

As the group began to take shape, Mark became disillusioned with its direction of clean-cut bubblegum pop and opted to quit. He was intending on working with a harder edge. Another one of Donnie's neighborhood friends and classmates, Jaime Kelley, took his place. Kelley, though, would eventually be dismissed for lack of concentration and discipline. Seeking a Michael Jackson-type singer to sing the high solos, Starr replaced him with 12-year-old Joey McIntyre from Dorchester, whom the other guys initially resented for being the one to replace their friend. With the final line-up in place, Starr rehearsed the boys diligently after school and on weekends and scored the group (which was being called Nynuk) a record deal at Columbia Records. The label, however, demanded Starr change the name of the group. Subsequently they settled on New Kids on the Block, after a rap song that Donnie had written and arranged for their first album.

1986: New Kids on the Block (debut album)

New Kids On The Block (1986)
New Kids On The Block (1986)

In April 1986, Columbia Records released the group's self-titled debut album. The album, almost exclusively written and produced by Maurice Starr, featured mid 80s bubblegum pop material. The first single, "Be My Girl" received minor airplay around the group's native Boston, but failed to capture nationwide attention. The album's second single, "Stop It Girl," fared even worse. The New Kids went on tour around the New England states, singing wherever Starr could book them: in bars, school dances, and strip club. Nevertheless, Starr remained diligent and persuaded the label to allow the group to record a second album. The album, however, would later go on to be certified triple platinum and sell over seven million copies, largely on the strength of the popularity the group attained with their next album.

1988-1989: Hangin' Tough

After the failure of the first album, Starr had the group back in the studio for most of 1987 and 1988 recording their second album. Each of the boys were disatisfied with the clean, cheesy bubblegum sound their first album, and they wanted to have more input on their look, direction and song material. As a result, Donnie, Danny and Jordan received associate producer credit on the final product. The new album's first single was "Please Don't Go Girl," a ballad released in spring 1988. Failure seemed destined a second time when the song became another that went unnoticed by the listening public, and Columbia Records made plans to drop the New Kids from the label. At the eleventh hour, however, a radio station in Florida began playing the song. Scoring listener approval, it soon became the most requested song on their play list. When Columbia caught wind of the positive response, they decided to keep the group on its roster and put more effort into promoting the single. National attention soon followed and it eventually climbed to #10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart—becoming the group's first hit.

New Kids on the Block's second album, Hangin' Tough, was released to modest fanfare in September. In the meantime, the group began making national televised appearances on such music programs as American Bandstand, Showtime At The Apollo, and Soul Train. They later landed a spot as an opening act for fellow teen-pop act Tiffany on the U.S. leg of her concert tour. Sales of Hangin' Tough steadily increased as the group's national attention slowly rose. At year's end, the album's second single "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" was released. The song was given a huge boost when MTV took notice of the group and began playing the video in regular rotation. By early 1989, it cracked the top five. The New Kids hit paydirt with their next single, "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)," which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart in June. The group had been scheduled to open for Tiffany once again on a second tour, but their sudden popularity caused a reversal, and she wound up opening for them (although the two acts were technically billed as "co-headliners.")

More top five singles from Hangin' Tough followed into the summer and fall, including: the title track and "Cover Girl." Columbia Records also released, from the groups previously overlooked debut album, "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind)." The song went top 10 on the strength of the group's popularity and effectively jump-started the sales of that album as well. By the end of 1989, Hangin' Tough had climbed to #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and had gone eight-times platinum. They, subsequently, became the first 'teen' act to garner five top 10 hits from a single album.

Meanwhile, a top ten charting holiday album, Merry, Merry Christmas, was released in the fall—spawning another top 10 hit, "This One's for the Children" and going 2x Platinum in the US. The proceeds were donated to United Cerebral Palsy, the New Kids' favorite charitable cause.

1990-1991: Step by Step

Step By Step (1990)
Step By Step (1990)

By early 1990, New Kids on the Block had become one of the most popular acts in the world. The following May, they followed up Hangin' Tough with Step by Step, which featured slightly more than half of the songs co-written and produced by the members themselves. A New Jack Swing sound and a Michael Jackson style became a new part of their repetoire. They started incorporating live instruments into their songs and concerts. The first single, the title track, raced to #1 on the Hot 100 Singles Chart and became their biggest selling single. It was followed up with the top ten "Tonight," which extended the consecutive top ten singles chart run to an amazing nine records.

The group performed an estimated two hundred concerts a year, with an extravagant worldwide concert tour that summer, called The Magic Summer Tour, sponsored by Coke. Their pay-per-view special was the biggest in cable-TV history to that date. During this time, the group became heavily merchandised; more than one hundred and forty products that were licensed with NKOTB trademarks. These included lunch boxes, packing trunks, sleeping bags, pillow cases, T-shirts, comic books, dolls, and even a Saturday morning cartoon in their likeness. That series was on ABC from 1990-91 (with reruns the following year on Disney Channel). Though the band appeared in live action clips, the voices of the New Kids were done by other voice actors (two of them also did Captain Planet).

New Kids on the Block's official fan club had a membership of over one hundred thousand names, and received thirty-thousand letters a day. Approximately one hundred thousand calls per week were dialed to 1-900-909-5KIDS, the Official NKOTB Hotline, as well. The group topped Forbes list of highest paid entertainers of 1990, beating out the likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna. Further capitalizing on the fame, at year's end, Columbia Records released No More Games/The Remix Album—a compilation of the group's biggest hits remixed. Sensing their audience was growing up, Donnie led the group in remixing their songs into a more rap, hip hop style.

By 1991, the group had become very over-exposed, and public and commercial backlash started to form. Now calling himself "The General," Starr began repeatedly reinforcing that he had written, produced and played on all their albums. Sensing that it was time to give the American market a break, the group released no new material that year, but they went overseas and continued to tour throughout Europe and Asia. That summer, Wood and Wahlberg co-wrote and produced the debut album from Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch—headed by Mark Wahlberg, Donnie's brother and former New Kid.

1992: Allegations of lip syncing, and waning popularity

As their touring itinerary was nearing its end in early-mid 1992, the group released a new stand-alone single, "If You Go Away." The song became a top 20 hit, peaking at #16 on the charts. Although relatively popular, it was not as big of a hit as their previous material. Meanwhile, as the music industry was still reeling from the Milli Vanilli lip-synching scandal, the group found themselves accused by a former engineer of not having sung all of the 1988 hit album Hangin' Tough. They immediately struck back, going on a minor publicity blitz to refute the allegation. Culminating with an interview and live performance on The Arsenio Hall Show, they managed to successfully quell the claim. Eventually, their accuser confessed to fabricating the claim out of spite. Nonetheless, it still didn't stop them from noticing that their popularity had waned as teen-pop had now gone out of fashion. With Gangsta rap and Grunge becoming more popular, the group went into hibernation while plotting their next move.

Face The Music (1994)

Faced with the constant derision of people outside their teen market and the maturation of that base, the fact that they themselves were no longer teenagers, and that the type of music that had once made them famous had faded from the lexicon, the group split off from Maurice Starr and signed with Columbia Records. Since the name "New Kids" had an overexposed following, they shortened their name to NKOTB, at the request of the label. They attempted to make a comeback in January 1994 with Face the Music.

Their first studio album in close to four years, Face the Music, was a musical departure from the group's previous efforts. All of the members sang lead, nearly all the songs were written and produced by the group, etc. In spite of some positive critical reception, the album was not a commercial success. The group's final single to chart was "Dirty Dawg" (which featured a rap cameo by Nice & Smooth.) The video was banned from Canadian music video network Muchmusic, due to its suggested violence and misogynistic imagery.[2] Nice & Smooth is an East Coast rap duo from New York, composed of Greg Nice (Greg Mays) and Smooth B (Daryl Barnes). ...

NKOTB went on tour to support the album, but faced with the reality that their time as pop music icons had peaked, were forced to play smaller venues such as clubs and theaters, as opposed to the arenas and stadiums they had become accustomed to playing when they were at the height of their fame. Group member Jonathan Knight, meanwhile, departed the tour early after increased panic attacks and anxiety. As a cover story, it was explained to the media that he had fallen off his horse and injured his back. Shortly thereafter, the remaining four decided to cancel the rest of the tour, and the group disbanded altogether in June 1994. A panic attack is a period of intense fear or discomfort, typically with an abrupt onset and usually lasting no more than 30 minutes. ...

MTV | New Kids on the Block - Profile and Biography (364 words)
The result was New Kids on the Block, which quickly eclipsed the popularity of Starr's previous group.
Comprising Boston-area singers Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jon Knight, Danny Wood, and Joe McIntyre, the New Kids were awkward and enthusiastic on their 1986 debut, which wasn't surprising considering that the oldest members were barely 16 years old.
New Kid mania continued with 1990's Step by Step; even if it sold five million copies less than Hangin' Tough, it still sold three million copies.
