    (1989- )
    Born in Boston, Massachusetts
    Ricky Bell (September 18, 1967- )
    Michael Bivins (August 10, 1968- )
    Ronnie DeVoe (November 17, 1967- )
    Spun off from New Edition
    Recorded the albums 'Poison' (1990), 'WBBD--Bootcity! The Remix Album' (1991), 'Hootie Mack' (1993) and 'BBD' (2001)
    Recorded the singles 'Poison' (1990), 'Do Me!' (1990), 'B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me)' (1990), 'She's Dope!' (1991), 'Word to the Mutha!' (1991), 'Gangsta' (1992) and 'Something in Your Eyes' (1993)
    They liked exclamation points in song titles!
    'Do Me!' was described in 'Rolling Stone' as 'a landmark in priapic obsession.'
    Their follow-up albums were nowhere near as successful as their debut.
    They described their sound as 'Hip-hop smoothed out on an R&B tip with a pop feel appeal.'
    The three members keep going back and forth between BBD and New Edition.
    The 'Poison' album topped the R&B chart, went Top five on the Pop chart and was certified quadruple platinum with sales of over four million.
    DeVoe said about their success, 'Everyone was looking for Ralph [Tresvant] and Johnny [Gill] to be the stars coming out of the group, so we kind of snuck up out of nowhere.'
    Their records had a harder, funkier edge than New Edition's.
    After the success of BBD, Bell went from being primarily a background singer in New Edition to lead singer on most of their singles.
    Bivins discovered and managed Boyz II Men, Another Bad Creation and 702.
