On July 24th, Rolling Stone released an article titled "75 Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time."

The list consisted of many legendary boy bands from N'Sync to One Direction and even the classic Jackson 5. Of course, we can't leave out our Kpop boy bands if we're going to talk about the greatest boy band songs. There are multiple Kpop songs that Rolling Stone has chosen to be part of their 75 greatest boy band songs of all time.

Here are the songs from Rolling Stone's "75 Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time."

#5 BTS - Moon

Rolling stone chose Jin's solo song "Moon" which was a track from BTS' seventh album 'MAP OF THE SOUL: 7' to be at rank #5. The song "Moon" expresses Jin's fondness towards his fans as he refers himself to be their moon. The Rolling Stones claimed that this song "sums up everything that’s made BTS massive."

#14 SHINee - Sherlock

"Sherlock" was the song made popular as it was the remix between SHINee's song "Clue" and "Note". With a catchy beat, it captured the heart of many listeners and impressed them with their signature choreography at the beginning of the song where the boys spread out across the stage.

#19 BTS - Spring Day

Another song from BTS made the list. "Spring Day" is an all-time favorite song of many. This song perfectly melts the feelings of longing as the lyrics express "When will spring come...it's still winter in august..." and poetically expresses the coldness of loneliness.

#31 Big Bang - Fantastic Baby

Big Bang's "Fantastic Baby" made the ranking at number 31. The song made an impression on the netizens domestically and internationally as Big Bang released this song. This song is still-to-this-day a party favorite as the upbeat electric song heats up the vibe.

#34 BTS - Euphoria

BTS made the Rolling Stones ranking a third time with their song "Euphoria". This song was a solo song sung by Jungkook. He was able to intricately and beautifully express the love which brought "Euphoria" to his world and brought him to paradise. This song also tops the list of favorite songs of many fans.

#39 TVXQ - Mirotic

TVXQ made the Rolling Stones ranking with their song "Mirotic". TVXQ was the hit sensation from the second generation of Kpop. They made the top charts and received much love from fans. This song was made popular but also had to go through a relyric process because the part "I got you under my skin" was too controversial at the time.

#43 Seo Taiji and Boys - Nan Arayo (I Know)

Seo Taiji and Boys is largely considered the godfather of Kpop. They gained explosive popularity as they sang songs with lyrics that were speaking for the youth at that time. They can be seen as the pioneers for the Kpop industry.

#55 INFINITE - Chaser

INFINITE made the charts with their song "Chaser", a song with a catchy beat that was loved by many. Infinite received much love with this rock, electric song.

#56 BTS - Fake Love

BTS makes the charts again at #56 with "Fake Love". The song "Fake Love" can be the most recognized song by international fans. It became the first song to reach the top 10 on a U.S. music chart.

The only reason why I don't exactly trust Western media (even though I'm American) when it comes to covering K-Pop is that a list such as this one excludes H.O.T's "Candy" or Super Junior's "Sorry Sorry".
