Boys Who Cry
Boys Who Cry is the fictional boy band in Spongebob. They're very popular, their fans include Pearl Krabs and her friends. They can be seen in the episode: Whale of a Birthday when Mr. Krabs sends SpongeBob to buy Pearl a birthday present. SpongeBob ends up getting them to play at Pearl's 16th birthday. Pearl had a daydream about Boys Who Cry after waking up and had the band's new song in the dream.
In Mall Girl Pearl, Pearl is looking at them in a magazine.
- They are probably a parody of the 1980's one-hit wonder band Boys Don't Cry or the movie also called Boys Don't Cry.
- In Pearl's dream world in Sleepy Time a few fish who look like Boys Who Cry are shown in a painting.
- Their appearance in the magazine in Mall Girl Pearl could be a reference to how bands update their looks for more mature audiences.
- They're based on Boyz II Men, NSync, Backstreet Boys, and possibly a male equivalent of Spice Girls.
