** 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 hiphop/eletronic material than his pop rock albums.

Originally conceived as a [[RaceLift white version]] of Music/NewEdition (seriously), they enjoyed several years of major success in the late [[TheEighties 80's]] and early [[TheNineties 90's]], but declining sales, internal strife, and accusations of lip-syncing and other issues led to the group disbanding in 1994. Most of the members went on to solo musical careers, and Donnie Wahlberg became a successful actor. They got back together in 2008, released a new album, and held a very successful [[http://www.thenewkidsforever.com/ reunion tour]] and a tour in 2011 co-headlining with the Music/BackstreetBoys. A new album was released on April 2, 2013, along with a joint tour with Music/NinetyEightDegrees and Music/BoyzIIMen.

They also had a short-lived [[WesternAnimation/NewKidsOnTheBlock animated series]] in the early 90s.

NKOTB is one of the TropeMakers (or, at least, {{Trope Codifier}}s) for subsequent {{Boy Band}}s.

* {{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.

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.

* 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?
