* {{Fanservice}}: We could spend a whole paragraph on this. It's probably enough just to note that there was a lot of it. Now that they're back together, it's even more prevalent. Conversely... ** MisaimedMarketing: The usual band merchandise like posters, t-shirts, buttons... and marbles, slippers, ''plush dolls'' (try not to [[FetishFuel think about that last one too hard]].) * HotterAndSexier: In spades since the reunion. ''The Block'' is very racy, and now that all five are in their mid-30s to early 40s, none are shy about showing off for the ladies[[note]]Jon generally being the exception, of course[[/note]].

** Mostly averted in their original run and on ''10''. ** ''The Block'' plays this very straight, depending on the song. ** In their solo material, Jordan uses this a ''lot'', with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Give It to You"]] being one of the best examples. Joey and Donnie also use it fairly regularly. Danny used it a lot more in his earlier material than his more recent albums.

** Pretty much a standard feature of the shows during the NKOTBSB and Package tours.

let's just do away with the mention entirely
New Kids on the Block, or NKOTB, are a [[{{Southies}} Bostonian]] Five Man BoyBand (do not mix with FiveManBand trope). For whatever reason, their [[ExecutiveMeddling Imposing Manager]] named the group Nynuk when it first formed (to this day, nobody is quite sure ''what'' he was thinking). Thank Donnie Wahlberg and Creator/ColumbiaRecords for the group's current moniker; Donnie wrote the song "New Kids on the Block" for the first album, and Columbia said they'd give the group a record contract provided they changed their name. The rest is history.

no, not of course. Removing misuse of Five Man Band trope, actually a rigid trope about team dynamics of highly stereotypical members with specialized contributions, it's not about musical ensembles; no relevant context; deprecated hero lead; the chick missing; see the FMB cleanup effort thread for questions/objections: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13401353520A80460100; also, Natter

* FiveManBand: Of course!\\ TheHero / The Sweet One - Jordan Knight\\ TheLancer / The Tough One - Donnie Wahlberg\\ TheSmartGuy / The Cute One - Joey [=McIntyre=]\\ TheBigGuy / The Cool Big Brother - Danny Wood\\ [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Jordan's older brother]] [[TheHeart Jon.]] ** Note that nearly every BoyBand since has had these roles or very similar ones -- it was even lampshaded [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Something_You_Can_Do_with_Your_Finger in an episode of]] ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did this [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Kids_on_the_Blecch too, but a year later and not as funny]]. ** Made funnier if you recall that in his acting career, Donnie actually fits more as "the cute one" personality speaking. Remember his role in ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' as [[TeamMom Sergeant Lipton]]? Or the MinionWithAnFInEvil in ''Film/{{Ransom}}'' who actually got hit with LimaSyndrome and bonded with their little hostage?
