Extreme 250

Extreme 250 (Extreme CCL) were the world’s first boyband. Named after the God, Extremulous, these five men were said to be worthy of the Gods, with the voices of the angels.

It was early in 39BC that these four men, one from Camulodunum (Colchester, Essex, UK), one from Deva (Chester, UK), one from Corinium (Cirencester, UK) and two brothers from Verulamium (St. Albans, UK) got together in a horse shed to practice some pop songs.

No further information on the band survived beyond the collapse of the Roman Empire, though it is believed the 250 in the name Extreme 250 came from the men’s combined weights. 50Kg in 39BC was certainly nothing to be sniffed at, with the average human being being a lot smaller than what we have come to expect today.
