I don't see the Hype, do you guys?

Ok. So in the 60s & 70s there were the Beetles and Begees. Check. 80s maybe New Edition and New Kids on the Block. Check. 90s: Hanson. Check. Now: The Jonas Brothers. Guys, perhaps it's ok to compare them with these people but I think it's an insult to do so. I get the fact that they're cute. I agree. I get the fact that their hit "Burning Up" is catchy...it took me a while to think that, but after being in a dorrm where 3 doors down is a 16 year old girl who is OBSESSED with them, hanging posters up, singing songs, playing songs, drooling over them, saying she wants to have their kids, etc--I think that one song is catchy. But I really don't get the hype...this is almost like all the Zac Efron hype about HSM, Hairspray and now he's getting the lead role for the remake of Footloose.

What do you guys think? If there are JB fans here, help me out. I don't get it.:mad:

Comparing The Beatles to the fucking Jonas Brothers is blasphemy.
The The Beatles are legends!!! The 3 gay brothers will be forgotten.

I hope those cheese dicks get mauled by a pack of gorillas. :)

I thought so too...I thought it was insulting...but people are saying those groups I named before are like them of this generation.


Cheese dicks? :confused:

there will never be another Beatles.

the Police came close but they broke up before getting to that status.


thing is - there is too much diversity in music today for there to ever be another Beatles ..

the one thing they achieved (and the Police did briefly) was to appeal cross-generationally. these days there doesnt seem to be more than 100 people that agree on any one thing. these new kid bands come and go in the blink of an eye - only supported by young kids. by the time the 3rd album comes out - those kiddie band fans have grown up and moved on.

Well apparently their genre is pop-rock and have some rap in their tracks..so technically is that "cross-genre" maybe not cross generation, but they they released their second album in August, had a bunch of sold out concerts, and have a movie coming out soon.

I don't see the hype....so I agree with being conservative on their superstardom...

TIME OUT.

I was a Spice girls fan in 1997....we had a group in school and imitated them...they were our idols....in 2008 I'm still a spice girls fan.....they recently had a reunion tour last summer and released a new greatest hits cd with their vids...

I doubt Jonas's will have fans 11 years from now--like they still do.

I hate the Allman Brothers Band!

I picked The Jonas Brothers as the worst band of all time. :)
