10. Willa Ford – She she wanted to be bad. Well, she wasn’t bad, wasn’t good, but was just mediocre enough to make the list. She had one hit, tried hitting on Carson Daly and then was outty. She tried to pull of the slutty image but it was overshadowed by her butterface.
9. Cleopatra – They’re comin atcha! They have the most street cred on the list for the mere fact that when all of their braids stretched cumulatively, they were able to stretch from New York to London, where they just so happened to hale from.
8. Joey McIntrye – Probably the biggest bust of the list. Some know him as the JaMarcus Russell of pop music. Post-NKOTB Joey could have been JT before JT was JT. He was the soft spoken, cute, curlyheaded, heartthrob we were yearning for in 1996.
7. S Club 7 – Personally, I think they sucked. I am strong disagreement of co-ed pop groups. And to be honest, I only put them on the lisr because the have a “7” in their name.
6. Robbie Williams – Definitely the most arrogant chap of the bunch. He had one smashing hit that was major major, dated supermodels, and had his castle featured on MTV Cribs. So, I feel like he was entitled for a grade of 65%.
5. Dream – The original Bad Girls of Bad Boy. They were the first unsuccessful group Diddy produced and they sure as hell weren’t the last. However, I do want to give them credit where credit is due. And a little something inside of me says the paved the way for the future of female pop mediocrity. Such as: 3LW, The Pussycat Dolls, and Danity Kane.
4. Jordan Knight – Ahh the JC Chasez of mediocrity if you will. Jordan had a couple of World Premiers and Making the Videos on TRL, but those were sadly the last times they were aired. Because well they were wack. Instead of “hangin tough” like his boy Donnie, he chose to stay in Boston and drink too many Sam Adams Summer Ales, which we all know are high in calories with all of those grains of Paradise. Basically he got fat.
3. 5ive – 5ive is my personal favorite on the list. And I still listen to Slam Dunk the Funk when I hop fences and play dunkball on elementary school hoops. They had good voices, attitude, and were popular worldwide for 3 months, literally. I still remember when I got their self-titled album for 50% off at K-Mart because I bought Lauryn Hill and they cashier said I could get one more for half off. Not to mention the fact that their song was featured on the Disney Channel Original Movie, “Smart House.”
2. Lou Bega – Lou Bega was actually the first Latin American Artist in the post Ricky Martin era, to have a Billboard #1 single and then vanish into thin air, unlike a Criss Angel Magic tricks because you can see the ropes. Now, I don’t really know if that is true or not but now “Mambo Number 5″ will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
1. 2gether – When people think of 2gether, they think of ” You Plus Sign Me Equal Sign Us”! But most people do not think back to the their origin. They were brought together to mock the many other boy bands of the times in an MTV movie but in reality became more popular than most boy bands. I put them at the top of the list because I think it’s funny that Mickey Park at 30 years old ended up making more money than everyone else on this list and is still acting as a character on MTV’s show “The Hard Times of RJ Berger”.
