Johnny & Associates[edit]

Being founded in 1962 this agency should be mentioned as an early boy band manufacturer. Interstingly they are older than the jackson 5, the article is too anglo and centered around a random date. Are we sure there were not what would nowadays be considered a full boy band (formed by an agency and all) before the 60s? Mirad1000 (talk) 18:21, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Beatles[edit]

Why y'all don't include The Beatles on the table of "List of best selling boy bands"? -GogoLion (talk) 21:30, 15 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Half this article is a debate about what a boy band is. The History section debates whether or not The Beatles are a boy band. It seems that nobody could make up their mind on either point. HiLo48 (talk) 00:00, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding BTS[edit]


The BTS page shows they are both a boy band and have surpassed 40 million albums.

Umm.... okay and? -GogoLion (talk) 17:42, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They should be added to the table? If the table is claiming it shows boy bands who've sold over 40 million and doesn't actually represent that, it's a problem. 2600:100C:B035:4DAD:0:49:4359:5F01 (talk) 18:27, 31 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They have approximately 75 million (only counting certified sales so the number is probably much higher). I've been compiling sources here but so far I have almost 50 which I'm not sure people will like, although I would argue that the more detailed the better. In the current table the sources simply claim sales without offering any sort of proof, and some are not even listed in WP:RSPSS. So I'm not sure what carries more weight when adding a new entry. - Ïvana (talk) 00:19, 1 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A Pasting[edit]

The edit includes an accidental? pasting — changing ″Broadcasting″ to ″Broadband is not 6ft to a particular location casting″, which has not been rectified. The ″H″ at the end did disappear, after a busy evening … — (talk) 00:40, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
