To help me out with JCM20's excellent poll about what the best song is from both a Boy Band and Girl Group, I had to sit down and brainstorm what groups there have been over the years.

Ok I guess I've got a bit carried away with this catalogue of boy bands and girl groups.

Perhaps I need some rules to narrow down the results;

For example what constitutes a boy band or girl group?
How many members should be in the group as a minimum/maximum?
How many chartworthy songs should they have had in the UK as a minimum?
What music genres should the list be limited to?

Thoughts anyone? unsure.gif

Just noticed DNCE listed as a boyband, not technically true because they have one female member!
