Take That: Greatest Boyband?

A new poll has said that Take That has been voted the greatsest boyband ever, beating The Beatles.

Music - News - Take That beat Beatles in boyband poll - Digital Spy

I agree with this, but that is probably my age, if I was older I would no doubt think that The Beatles were. Dont get me wrong though I do like The Beatles, just like TT more.

Whats everyone elses opinion on this?

Na nout to beat the Fab Four, not only for their work but L & M song writing as well, Take That arn't bad for a modern day band but there were lots better in the 60s and 70s

Re: Take That: Greatest Boyband?

definately not Take That, although I did like them.

I'm with Emzy, (incidentally theyve gone back to New Kids on the Block). They were the modern time Ultimate Boy band, however I would love to have experienced Beatlemania

Re: Take That: Greatest Boyband?

whoever called the beatles a "Boy Band" is a thick git, they had worked a couple of years on the Hamburg circuit, also toured in uk as support fer bigger stars.

I don't mind Take That but am not too sure about being the best BoyBand,
same goes for New Kids On The Block aswell,
think they are all about the same really, Westlife, Boyzone, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC

Exactly, sir.

Isn't "greatest boy band" a juxtaposition anyway? Who on earth would even want that title?

Re: Take That: Greatest Boyband?

I'd never have put the Beatles as a boy band. Ok, admittedly they were a group of 4 fairly attractive men but not a boy band - if you're going to call them a boy band then pretty much every other band that's ever existed would fit in that genre too - Rolling Stones, Oasis, Radiohead - boybands? I don't think so.

A boy band is surely a group like Take That, Boyzone, New Kids, etc - who are put together as a song and dance group.
