    They gave us Bobby Brown.
    The group was put together by Maurice Starr, who wanted to create an urban Jackson 5.
    Their first single, 'Candy Girl,' is an obvious rip off of the Jackson 5's 'ABC.'
    When New Edition left Starr's independent label, Streetwise Records, for MCA Records, he sued New Edition for their name (he lost).
    In retaliation, Maurice Starr began seeking out a white version of New Edition as possible rivals. This would lead to the formation of New Kids On The Block.
    The group split up into numerous projects, got back together, only to split up again.
    They are credited as being the first boy band (i.e., 5 young men who sing and dance, wear ridiculous outfits and play no instruments).
    During the Bell Biv Devoe years, Michael Bivins produced a side project called Another Bad Creation, 5 young boys who were New Edition wannabes. The name says it all.
    They wised up and replaced Bobby Brown with Johnny Gill.
    New Edition introduced a new sound to the music industry called 'New Jack Swing,' a mixture of hip-hop and R&B.
    Unlike many of today's boy bands, they never designated characters in the group (i.e., 'shy one,' 'cute one,' although Bobby took on the full-time role of 'trouble maker.').
    They were the inspiration behind Boyz II Men.
