In the summer of 1990 New Kids on the Block released album "Step By Step". The kids were one of the biggest pop acts on the scene with girls and boys alike wanting them, or wanting to be them. The single released by the same name as the album title was a huge hit. You'd see the merchandise everywhere, bed sheets, posters, clothing similarities, haircuts and people singing it in school. The group had popularity prior with albums like "Hangin' Tough" at the end of 1989 reaching #1 in USA on the carts. However they gained worldwide fame after this album and if it's nostalgia or not, you'll never forget some of The New Kids on the Block singles, even if you don't want to admit it. They enjoyed multiple platinum albums and have been touring lately under their revamped name NKOTB proving they were not just a fad that would fade away.
