OVERRATED: Tough boy-band fans

In a story that seems ripped from the pages of the Onion, one-time teen pop star Aaron Carter claims he was beaten up by some loyal fans of Boston's New Kids on the Block. Although it's easy to admire the concept of "Boston Strong" taken to richly absurd levels, such antics seem inconsistent with the boy-band genre. If some lost souls really needed to work through some music-based regional aggression, wasn't there a Dropkick Murphys show nearby?
