"After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together.
The band’s Web site, www.nkotb.com, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks.
The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.
The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early ’90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994.
Eighteen years later, they’re still “Hangin’ Tough.” The oldest “Kid,” Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band’s demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight’s brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record."
This news just made my night xD

Hey now, I used to hang with the Kids and Marky back in the day. I'm sure if they do reunite, it will first be for "business" reasons and then maybe because there is still a little slice of enthusiasm to perform again as a group.
Joe, Jordan and Jon were always very nice. Jordan is actually quite funny. Donnie was hit or miss. Somedays he was cool, other days he was a smart a$$. Danny once said something really sleazy to one of my girlfriends and ever since then, I had no use for him. Mark, however, well he is just gold! You couldn't ask for a nicer guy, truly! I think that is why he has gotten as far as he has. When you're genuine, good things come your way! Just my two cents. I had to represent...haha! NKOTB 4eva!
