    The Top 25 Boy Bands Of All Time

    The results are in. Who is the greatest boy band?

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to rank a large list of boy bands on a scale from 1 (“They’re not good”) - 5 (“They’re the best!”). Here are the results:

    Via amazon.co.jp

    How the results were tallied: Percentage of votes multiplied by the number associated with that percentage. Only rankings of 3 and higher were counted.

    Example:

    Band X: 35% voted 5, 25% voted 4, and 10% voted 3.

    35x5 + 25x4 + 10x3 = 305 (Final Score)
