If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It

New Kids on the Block stopped by The Today Show to perform some old hits ??? key word being “old,” because it’s just not the same as it was back in 1991. That whole thug appeal of Donnie Wahlberg waving his arms around while singing about “The Right Stuff” isn’t the same when it’s 2008 and he’s in a suit on a morning show.

Click through for the video, if you care to ruin your fond NKOTB memories of yesteryear.

I thought it was fantastic.
If crap artists like Britney Spears can have a career then, why can’t NKOTB?
Watching the clip makes me feel like I’m 10 yrs old all over again.
Can’t believe it’s been 16yrs….

I can’t wait for the NJ show!

I cant help it…i find them totally hot!! Hotter than they were as teenagers. What i dont find hot is the strange looking heavy-set mom-jeans wearing women that are in that crowd. Geez!!

For the record…i never bought any of the albums. Wait..did they have more than one album?? lol.

OMG! That brought a huge smile to my face! I loved these guys (Jonathan was always my favorite, btw) and I totally agree they are hotter now than they were then. I feel like I’m 14 again, hanging tough.
