If you were a tween in the early 90s, chances are you had a thing (and a doll) for one of the New Kids on the Block. The boy band reached epic levels of super-stardom selling more than 50 million albums, gathering legions of fans and becoming a worldwide sensation before disbanding in 1994. Hell, even LFO name-dropped them in some lyricsand lets face it, once LFO mentions you, you know youve made it. Well, eighteen years later, the boys are still Hangin Tough and theyve made it to the point of a reunion tour. Sure, they may not be as young, attractive or limber as they once were, but Jonathan, Donnie, Joey, Danny and Jordan are back to prove to loyal fans that theyve still got it (the right stuff).
