Take That: Then

The boy band phenomenon wasn't just an American thing, as proven by these five teens from England. Assembled by producer Nigel Martin Smith to be like a tongue-in-cheek New Kids on the Block, Take That (pictured in 1992) made a huge splash across the pond. Between 1992 and 1996, Take That -- made up of (from left to right) Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Jason Orange, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald -- had eight No. 1 singles on the U.K. charts, including "Pray" and "Everything Changes." The group began to unravel after Robbie Williams left in 1995, and they announced their break-up in 1996.
