BTS’s Jin’s solo song “Moon” has been named one of the top five “75 Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time” by Rolling Stone.

On July 24, Rolling Stone selected and released the list for “75 Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time.”

Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” released in 1969, took the top spot, which is followed by N Sync’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” (2000), New Edition’s “Candy Girl” (1983) and Backstreet Boys’s “I Want It That Way“ (1999).

And Jin’s solo song “Moon,” a track from BTS’s fourth full-length album MAP OF THE SOUL: 7, took the fifth place.

Rolling Stone wrote, “It’s their version of that classic boy-band staple: the love song to the fans. The music is spacey guitar pop, and Jin sings about how the audience is his Earth, while he’s just the moon that revolves around it, orbiting and shining. ‘Moon’ sums up everything that’s made BTS massive. And they’re just getting started.”

Immediately after the release, the song topped the iTunes Chart in 93 countries, including the US.

Meanwhile, in addition to “Moon,” BTS’s “Spring Day” came in 19th, Jungkook’s “Euphoria” ranked 34th, and BTS’s “Fake Love” ranked 56th, drawing attention.
