MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : SMASH HITS – 29.9.1993

In this week’s edition of Smash Hits, Bad Boys Inc have a confession to make.

In fashion Stakka Bo offer fashion tips for fans who want to dress like them.

Smash Hits goes behind the scenes at the shoot for Bad Boys Inc video for their new single Whenever You Need Someone, giving it two pages of coverage.

Take That go one page better, as they get three pages as Smash Hits publishes their diary from a busy summer.

There was more Boy Band action as New Kids On The Block got three pages as well, though they weren’t really new kids by the time 1993 came around.

It wasn’t all about Boy Bands, as Smash Hits spent a girl’s night in with Eternal, in a double page spread.

In reviews, fashionistas Stakka Bo were Best New Single for Here We Go Again.

The magazine ends with an advert for the next edition, which comes with free tattoos.
