If you thought American boy bands were kind of ridiculous back in the day, you haven’t gone looking for 90s boy bands from Europe! While they all have the same elements that shot Backstreet Boys and NKOTB to the top of our charts, European boy bands did it better…and with an accent!
Let’s focus on the French boy band, 2Be3.
The group of friends came together as 2Be3 in 1996, producing three studio albums and touring Europe until they disbanded in 2001. They even starred in a television show on a national Francophone network called Pour être libre, or “To Be Free” which ran for 40 episodes. While the whole thing might be in French, its easy to tell how these three friends were superstars in their homeland. Click here to watch an episode from the show. Too bad we didn’t know about this years ago…we would have moved to France just for them!!!
2Be3 did have one English-language single aptly titled “Excuse My French” and we can’t stop giggling at how ridiculous this all seems now but back in the 90s…the music and the clothes were a big deal!!
Is it just us, or does the one in the middle look like Channing Tatum a little bit?
