You would think that a bonafide rock star like Sleater-Kinney member Carrie Brownstein would despise the pre-packaged, looks-over-music ensembles known as “boy bands.” But the Portlandia star admitted to having an unironic adoration of those teen-sational tunes while visiting with James Corden on the set of The Late Late Show.
When asked about her number one, go-to boy band, she didn’t hesitate with an answer: New Kids on the Block. In fact, Carrie was, in her words, “playing the long game” when it came to choosing which member she’d want to be with, opting not for the prettiest boy but the one the girls didn’t tend to go for.

You’ll have to watch below to see Carrie Brownstein’s revelatory statements about those plucky New Kids on the Block, as well as bonus clips of Carrie and fellow guests Joel Edgerton and Jane Lynch talking about celebrity guardian angels, officiating fan weddings and more.
