New Kids On The Block Take You Back To The 80s

Written by on March 18, 2022

New Kids On The Block just released their new song Take Back The Time and the video clip is a tribute to the 80’s. It’s that gentle reminder of a time where mullets were cool and even the simplest dance moves could go viral.

Fans of the’80s one-hit-wonders will recognize references to music videos for songs like “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley, “Whip It” by Devo and “Mickey” by Toni Basil mixed in with hits like “Rio” by Duran Duran, “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by Twisted Sister and more. Even if you weren’t around in the ’80s, the sheer meme potential alone is worth every second of this hilarious video.

The tribute comes just a few years after NKOTB gave us a┬áhistory lesson in boy bands with their “Boys in the Band (Boy Band Anthem)” video. Sensing a theme? Watch the full “Bring Back the Time” video below to see how many classic ’80s music video references you can spot.

If anything you can tell how much fun they had in shooting the video as it should be!
