Top 25 Teen Idols

The Top 25 Teen Idols Of All-Time - List Of The Day: "Who doesn't love a teen idol? After all, they're so young! And as we age and slowly become decrepit, we look back at our youth and wonder at the innocence of it all. For the most part, I tried to stick with performers who were actual teenagers when they inspired their peers. However, Davy Jones was clearly a bit older when he swooned Marcia Brady's heart and he is the very definition of a teen idol, as was David Cassidy. These days, we're much better at making sure our teen idols are teenagers. Or at least were teenagers. Funny thing is they eventually grow up--like Britney. And develop into fine, fine citizens of the world. Or not."

Thanks (I guess) to Doc Quatermass for the link.

Bobby Darin, Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell were the original teen idols. That's a ridiculous, uniformed, stupidly revisionist list...otherwise I liked it fine.
