Kid Of The Day: New Kids On The Cock

New Kids on the Cock is an American boy band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band currently consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood.

New Kids on the Cock enjoyed success in the late 1980s and early 1990s and have sold more than 80 million records worldwide.

In April 1986, Columbia Records released the group’s self-titled debut album. The album, almost exclusively written and produced by Maurice Starr, featured mid 80s bubblegum pop music.

After the failure of the first album, the group went back in the studio for most of 1987 and 1988 recording their second album. Dissatisfied with the excessively bubblegum sound of their first album, the group wanted to have more input on their look, direction and song material.

New Kids on the Cock’s second album, Hangin’ Tough, was released to modest fanfare in September. In the meantime, the group began making national televised appearances

They, subsequently, became the first ‘teen’ act to garner five top ten hits from a single album.
