Haha you almost got me.

My guilty pleasures are 1D, NSync, Backstreet Boys to name a few. For the record I think the Backstreet and NSync are more nostalgic thing for me (I'm a 90's kid). 1D has a few catchy songs, that get stuck in my head every once and a while. paul-mccartney

As for The Beatles being a boyband:

Depends on your definition of boyband as to whether or not they were one. Brian helped style their image etc but they weren't formed by a record executive, wrote their own songs, played their own instruments, and had a say in what they did not being solely directed/ordered by their manager (tho they did listen to and respect Brian a lot). You could also say they were completely ripped off regarding royalties per sales but that was more to do with the era. 

Exactly. Also, just because they had a lot of screaming fans means nothing. A lot of bands back then had a lot of screaming fan girls. Look up The Rolling Stones appearances on Ed Sullivan. You wouldn't exactly be calling the Stones a boy band. If you want say the music was poppy, well yes it was, but that was also the era. You can't expect it to go Doo Wop to Metallica over night, can you? Thats one of the great things about The Beatles, they had different era and helped change music.
