The Puerto Rican boy band Menudo, appealing to young Latina audiences, was founded in 1977.
All these artists were very successful on both the singles and albums charts domestically and internationally however with the emergence of Britpop and the commercial co-option of indie rock, many boy bands were ridiculed by the British music press as having no artistic credibility, although some boy bands, such as East 17 and Take That, did write most of their own material.
The group were one of the first bands like The Monkees before them to take the formula shown by The Beatles and apply it to a teen market.
The group achieved the same amount of success but for a limited period of time.
For instance, their music featured close harmonies from soul music and catchy pop hooks influenced as much as they were by Motown and acts like the Supremes.
All members of the band sang, which is a common convention of a boy band, as opposed to having a front man and the rest on instruments; thus, no one person dominated the stage.
