New Kids Slam Backstreet Boys

Newly reformed NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK have hit out at fellow boyband BACKSTREET BOYS - insisting their comeback will be much more successful.
Backstreet Boys have taken several breaks from the music scene throughout their career, and each time their return has failed to replicate the success of their heyday in the 1990s.
New Kids On The Block recently reunited after 15 years away from the pop market, but they insist that their comeback will eclipse the recent efforts of the Backstreet Boys.
Singer Danny Wood says, "Backstreet's records sound the same as before - their music didn't evolve like ours has. They never spoke too highly of us and said if we had talent we'd still be around. They should've probably kept their mouths shut!"

Their is absolutely no comparison between the 2 groups. Each guy in BSB can hold his own....... can't say that about NKOTB.

The truth is stranger than fiction ... when you're a walking contradiction ... BSB was NEVER GONE! But NKOTB, well ya'll need to go back where you were, stop bashing BSB. STOP trying to say they followed you back out into the spotlight, YOU guys are the copy cats, not BSB. BSB announced their world tour for Unbreakable which came out almost a year ago now, in January!(cd was out October of 2007) You guys just decided you were going to come back. This year in 2008You better think about you said and you better be ready to go head to head with BSB. But one things for sure, Sick as your secrets .. you will eat your words !

Wow! I too am a BSB fan. I heard about Kevins comments as well and while i dont think it was something that should have been said im sure that it was out of frustration from being compared to New Kids. Also I dont think what Danny said was very professional, especailly since in recent coments the BSB have been giveing props to New Kids. There shouldnt be rivelry. Arent we all adults here??

Elishia BSB FOREVER!

W T F ??? Who the hell does New Kids think they are ??? They left the music scene for 15 year!!! 15 years!!! Abandoning there "fans" Just because sucess got to be too much for them ?? And they got to rich ?? So NOW They decide to come back why ??? Are they broke already ?? Did they go thru all there money that fast ?? They are not coming back for the music, they are coming back for the Money. Backstreet on the other hand, HAS NEVER LEFT THE MUSIC SCENCE. They have NEVER broken up, so they took a few years in between most artitsts do, that doesnt mean they are broken up ?? They are sucessful and more loyal to their fans then NK will ever be. So NK Better shut there mouths cause your comeback is too little too late.P.S How Old are NK now anyways ?? 40 ?

hi. i understand that everybody has their own opinion about things but talking bad about another group doesnt get you the right publicity you need to get your new music following. I was a huge fan of all the boys bands but i can tell you from experience BSB and NSYNC will always be #1 concert performers way better then New kids. I give them mad respect to try it again but our music has changed so much then what it was in the 80's and 90's. I say good luck and hope you have a blast.

What the heck! How can Nkotb say that about Backstreet boys! They have been away for 15 years, bsb NEVER LEFT sure they took a break they deserved one they were touring for like 9 years straight. BSB is way more sucessful then new kids! BSB is also more gracious to their fans they sing for the fans not for the money I met them this year they are the nicest people and are so appreciative for the fans staying with them for 15 years. BSB are so much more talented then new kids, they put on an amazing live show and have always put out amazing records sure maybe they don't change their sound, they tried that with their 2004 cd NeverGone and they found that that did not go over very well that's why they stick to their original sound that is what they are known for, their not trying to be something they're not. How can new kids sat that bsb does not support them, they said that they are behind new kids 100% and they think it's great they are back because new kids opened the door for groups like BSB. All BSB said was don't take the criticism personally just ignore it and do your thing. All I can say is new kids better watch what they say, and I can't wait for BSB to have a new album and new tour so they can show new kids who has more staying power. Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive!

There are several reasons (but I will resort to naming three) why NKOTB will be more successful than BSB and here they are:*A hell of a lot more money going towards marketing and promotion (Hello NKOTB is signed to Geffen Records - home of PussyCat Dolls)*More money invested in production; NKOTB has a ton of features on their new album: Pussycat Dolls, Lady Gaga, Akon, and Ne-Yo. All current chart toppers...How wrong can you really go when you have 5 features and a song about summertime that comes out in wait SUMMERTIME...Very difficult this success recipe.*Finally, backstreet boys never really left so you can't call that a comeback. The only reason you barely heard about them is cuz their label is too busy with Chris Brown nowadays and they kind of don't care about BSB all that much. They are bound to them by contract but hey as long as their obligations are minimally fulfilled no one can go to court. NKOTB however, well this is an actual comback. I mean I was 3 (in 1988) when they were at their peak. Since then they all had failed solo careers and were probably beginning to starve and thought hey - they Spice Girls did it, let's do this!Ultimately yes NKOTB will be more succesful in their comeback however you cannot compare this with the success of BSB who happens to be the #5 best selling act of the 90s in case you don't know your data. The comparison cannot be made because for BSB this is NOT a comeback, it's a constant creative process as for NKOTB well I'll let you decide that for yourself!
