Boyz 4 Now fans everywhere are dying to know if the beloved group will appear in the upcoming release of The Bob’s Burgers Movie. Whether it’s a guilty pleasure or a proud proclamation, many people are fans of boy bands, and that’s why they are so often satirized and replicated in fictional media.

From cartoon classics to live action shows and movies, there are plenty of fictional boy bands to dream about and sing along to. Even from fictional groups, the songs are always catchy because boy band songs are absolute bops. However, the best way to measure a fictional boy band’s greatness is by observing their dedication to the genre, the way they relate to each other, and how they treat their fans.


9 Party Posse – The Simpsons

The Simpsons is rife with satire, so it only makes sense that the show would address the boy band craze that has swept many nations for decades. In the season 12 episode “New Kids on the Blecch,” the Party Posse is formed.

It’s a lot of fun to see Bart Simpson and a group of his friends and nemesis turned into a boy band. They’re great at what they do, however, because of the nature of The Simpsonsit’s over when the episode is over, which makes Party Posse less authentic when compared to the other fictional greats.

8 The Oh Boyz – Kim Possible

The Oh Boyz appear in season 2 of Kim Possible in the episode “Oh Boyz,” in which they are kidnapped by Señor Senior Senior to blackmail their record company, Defteen records.

Much like the name of their record company and a lot of their song lyrics, the Oh Boyz exist more to mock boy bands than to pay tribute to them. However, it is impressive that two of the members of the Oh Boyz are voiced by Joey Fatone and Lance Bass of ‘N Sync fame.

7 Boys Who Cry – SpongeBob Squarepants

When Pearl finally convinces Mr. Krabs to spend money on throwing her a birthday party in season 4 SpongeBob SquarePants episode “Whale of a Birthday,” Boys Who Cry make their debut in the popular 1990s cartoon.

However, they don’t make it easy for their fans. The Boys Who Cry charge a million dollars to appear at the party. Even though Mr. Krabs can somehow technically afford it when SpongeBob takes the liberty of making a payment, it is still pretty steel for showing up for their biggest fan. Real boy bands have done more for less.

6 Boyz Next Door – Girls5Eva

While Girls5Eva is all about the ladies and getting their girl group back together, there is a boy band element to the show to really paint a full picture of the time Girls5Eva is coming up.

Not much is known yet about Boyz Next Door, and it’s unclear if more will be revealed, but as of now Andrew Rannells plays the only member the audience knows. However, Andrew Rannells as Kevin Hamlin is enough to get an incredible window into the Boyz Next Door with his sweeping bangs and amazing song “Boyz Next Door (Puber-Dude).”

5 Connect3 – Camp Rock

Any kid who grew up in the mid-2000’s knows Camp Rock and the boy band in the universe of the movie, Connect3. Anyone who has not seem Camp Rock might still recognize the image as the Jonas Brothers, a real-life boy band.

The boys do an excellent job playing a fictional boy band and singing the songs, but Connect3 lacks the full charm of the Jonas Brothers. The movie starts with them not getting along, and the three of them feel pretty disjointed, which is primarily because it was written for a singular pop star and turned into a band to add Kevin and Nick into the movie once Joe booked the role.

4 The Boyz Style – Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a lesser known comedy movie that parodies the feature-length pop music documentary genre brilliantly and stars The Lonely Island of Saturday Night Live fame.

It’s one of the best fictional interpretations of boy bands because The Style Boyz are the real deal. They have great music, a signature style, a signature dance, and they put a lot of stock in their connection to each other as band members. They’ll have the hard conversations about friendship when they need to.

3 Boyz 4 Now – Bob’s Burgers

Some of the best episodes of Bob’s Burgers are those that feature the hit show boy band, Boyz 4 Now. They’re so good at what they do that even Louise gets on board and goes to the concert with Tina, which is success that speaks for itself.

Their greatness is further displayed in their hits like “(I Wanna Hear Your) Secrets” and “I Love U So Much (It’s Scary)” that play more as the type of parody is a love letter to boy bands simultaneously. The crew takes care of each other, like making sure Boo Boo is in his booster seat, and they’re pretty nice to Tiny and Louise when they’re on the bus.

2 Boyz N’Motion – That’s So Raven

Boyz ‘N Motion from the season 3 episode of That’s So Raven entitled “Boyz ‘N Commotion” are a boy band force to be reckoned with. Their signature song “Boyz ‘N Motion” has been stuck in fans’ heads for decades.

They check all of the most important boy band boxes. They are dedicated to their genre and work enough to burst into song and their choreography whenever they’re reminded of one of their songs, they are clearly close to each other, and they are humble enough to go to a casual restaurant like the Chill Grill and are kind to Raven and her family when they get stuck in their home.

1 4 * Town – Turning Red

The most recent addition to fictional boy band land is 4 * Town from Disney / Pixar’s Turning Red. Clearly, they’re a worthy addition since they have the others beat.

4 * Town is so true to life that they even have two members, Aaron T and Aaron Z, that go under-appreciated by fans in favor of the other members. Beyond that silly addition, they have incredible songs written by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell, and they really deliver and help Mei in a huge time of need, which is the ultimate gift that boy bands give their fans.
