i think it's a good question... Why do sooo many people hate the Jonas Brothers?

they're having great success........ if anything, we should be happy that they're making it in music...

Uhh, how about the fact that they're poster boys for corporate pop music?

Nobody should respect pointless power chords and nothing really that musical except a catchy melody and cliche lyrics.

Noone cares.
I dare you to go to the "Rivers of Gore" forum and post a thread about the Jonas Brothers.
I'll piss my pants laughing.

Yeah the only reason they have sucess is because their music is only bought by young kids and they're just like fall out boy but they're going to be worse and they already sell outs in their first year

Apparently they don't actually play their instruments live.

Just what I heard. I know next to nothing about them, so I can't really back that up.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

they r totally just doing it for the cash, in a year win f-ing disney channel doesnt play them anymore they probably will never be heard about again, half their fans r only fans because mtv and disney channel tell them too so its the in thing to do according to them so they listen, once again a year later the jbs will b dead! they have so much undeserved success, COMPLETE SELLOUTS, im done ranting now =D

I just dislike them because they are a front. A media machine. They are just a means for disney to push it's values and ideologies onto young naive children who latch onto the pretty looks, 'badboy rockstar' image and catchy music, and immitate what the jonas brothers do (or rather are told/payed to do by disney).

It's common knowledge that children copy their idols, whether they be elder siblings or 'musicians' on the TV. Disney use this to manipulate children into: A. Buying disney merchandise, including CD's of the various 'artists' disney have crafted to different demographics, and B. Take morals and values from these influential figures.

Feeding these positive ideologies to the children keeps disney in the parents' 'good books', and they will continue to buy disney merchandise for their children, and allow their children to continue watching the disney channel and through 'Pester Power' influence their parents to buy yet more 'must have' accessories.


If an idea or value in society changes (such as the example of hybrid cars being encouraged, as fossil fuels cause polltion), corporations like disney who have a monopoly on their respective market have to change the products and ideologies they present so that they fall in line with society's new ideas. If they DO NOT change the veiws they are presenting, they will lose popularity and eventually be overtaken by a different company which DOES hold and present the morals and values parents want their children to be exposed to.

they're in a movie called "camp rock" without any rock songs, now thats pretty f***ed up.
and they just do it for the image

They're hate that a band they don't like is making MASSIVE amounts of money.

That's pretty much the jist of it. I have absolutely no problem with teenagers playing music and making money. To be honest, I don't give two ****s if they're only in it for the money. That's why people have jobs. 'Musician' is just a high-paying job with room for creative expansion.

They only want to look good in magazines, posters... There are so many better bands that don't get as much attention.

Not sure, they can sometimes appear to be a girly bunch. But I respect them as musicians.

I doubt they write any of their stuff.

And their music is crap (just my opinion. If you like it, fine. But just about all of those complaining about them couldn't stand 10 seconds of one of their songs. I ran my ass out the room when they played the Cowboys halftime show)

Ass whatshisname said, they are a device from disney, and only have a future if it suits disneys purposes.

They're very image-driven, and could care less what their music sounds like.

I doubt they can actually play guitars. And if you can't play guitar, don't pretend to. I have more respect for N'SYNC than the Jonas Brothers because they don't pretend to play guitar. And as we all know, a guitar helps with the "cool kid" image.

And that's why the suck

lol

with a multi-billion franchise backing them... suuuuuure.

i think tons of people have said this: they're not playing because they want to play music. they're playing because they're moneymakers. they care more about their corporate image than how the music actually sounds...

... which is why 100% of it is complete crap.

I just dislike them because theres so many other musicians out there with more talent who are struggling to make ends meet while these mediocre musicians get pushed by mtv and disney so hard.

Exactly.

I can name many bands that have worked harder than them, and gotten nowhere near the money or respect they did.
