The NFL’s continuous pursuit to make the Super Bowl halftime show an unparalleled pop culture spectacle has led them through a multitude of iconic performers, from Boomer-favorites like U2 and The Who to pop sensations like Katy Perry, J-Lo, Shakira, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. Then came a lull, marked by top acts declining the invite, relegating the stage to Maroon 5.

There are younger fans who’d be ecstatic to see Harry Styles, and unquestionably, K-Pop has a massive global following. But for many women in their 30s and 40s, the mere hint of bands like NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, Boys 2 Men, Bell Biv Devoe, and Color Me Badd sharing the same stage could stir up intense nostalgia.

I’ve observed this passion firsthand. Be it former colleagues or acquaintances from Barstool, there’s a palpable excitement, especially around bands with a Massachusetts connection. The allure of boy bands is more than a mere phase for these women; it’s akin to a lifestyle. Their knowledge on the topic is so vast that trying to stump them with a boy band trivia question is nearly impossible.

Imagine a scene reminiscent of ‘The Brady Bunch Movie,’ where Davy Jones’ school dance performance sends teachers into a frenzy:

Personally, I’m intrigued by the idea. While I’ve never been the target audience for boy bands, and often couldn’t distinguish one from another unless they embark on solo journeys like Timberlake or venture into acting like the Wahlbergs and Styles, the sheer spectacle of a generation bonded by shared boy band memories is tantalizing. The only request? Perhaps the NFL could sprinkle in a brief performance by my all-time favorite boy band, Fingerbang, as a nod to the gents:
