ESSENCE Poll: Which Old School Boy Band Did You Go Crazy Over?

(Your secret is safe with us if you're still not over them)

Have you heard the news? One Direction heartthrob Zayn Malik has left boy band, and teen girls across the globe are weeping. 

So much so that wax museum Madame Tussauds in London has been forced to hire a tissue attendant to stand at the boy band's wax figures. No, seriously. It is actually someone's job to hand out Kleenex to weeping fans. Seriously. (The museum ordered 150 boxes of tissues, which they expect will last 24 hours.)

Oddly, this isn't the first time the museum has brought on a "tissue attendant" for the One Direction exhibit. When the wax figures were first introduced two years ago, the position was created to distribute tissues to emotionally overwhelmed youngsters. 

You may be rolling your eyes, but be honest: There was that one boy band who you would go gaga over. You know—you owned all their albums, wore t-shirts emblazoned with their faces and had you gotten the chance to meet them, you would've been ugly crying.

Who was that boy band for you? Were you a New Edition devotee, or was Boyz II Men more your style? Take our poll, and leave us a comment saying who you will still go crazy for.
