NKOTB Toughens Image

Still attempting to shed their teenybopper image, the New Kids on the Block have once again changed with the times, officially altering their collective stage name to “Natural Born Killers on the Block,” or “NBKOTB.” This new “gangsta” image is a departure for the group, who at one time released an album consisting solely of Christmas tunes. Now, however, with the release of their new record, tentatively titled “Shotgun Blast To Your Mother,” the Kids want to show a slightly tougher side. Said band member Donnie in a press release, “Peoples all like up in our face, n dissinn shit, `n thas all bullshit, muthafucka.” Expert speech analysts are still attempting to decode the cryptic message.
