After THIRTY years in the music and a bunch of hits, New Kids On The Block were finally honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
On Thursday, the band showed up in suits affixed with pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness to receive the monumental award. Also in attendance were thousands of the band's fans, proving that the NKOTB is still popular as ever.

NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg gushed:
"We've been together for pretty much 30 years. We've been friends for longer. We've been through the droughts of droughts, the highs of highs. We've been through things that most people could never imagine. 'I think I speak for all of us in saying that I would not have wanted to spend one moment of the last 33 years doing this with anyone besides this team right here."
Aw! We really adore NKOTB's close bond!
Wahlberg also took the time to thank NKOTB's fans:
"I think I speak for all of us in saying that I would not have wanted to spend one moment of the last 33 years doing this with anyone besides this team right here."
Congrats, NKOTB! The honor is much deserved!
