It is a widely accepted tenet in pop music that every generation needs its own young stars to scream for.

Clearly the members of NKOTB recognized that few people (even those of us old enough to own "Hangin' Tough" on vinyl), can resist the simple pleasure of five talented, upbeat guys singing and dancing in unison. It's been true since the Jackson 5 ...
