I can hear the phone call now: "Jordan, stop! Don't cut your mullet - we're getting the band back together."
Why is this monumental news? Here's some background from their website:
... People...now see our place in pop history. We’ve read that we `begat the boy bands” like Backstreet Boys and N’Sync.... But hey, what about New Edition? There would be no New Kids without them. And of course, the Jackson Five begat New Edition. So I guess we were really just the first white boy band.
That's right. The first ever white boy band is getting back together after fifteen years. Fifteen long, empty, meaningless years.
