why does everybody hate the jonas brothers so bad?
sure, they may have shitloads of obsessive, stupid fans but i mean...

i don't like them as people themselves, their very self-centered and arrogant, and they have tons of product placement and the such, and i hate that,

but music wise,


a few of their songs sound like ordinary, harmless pop rock, some even decent,

so whats the deal?
why is it cool for everyone to flame the jonas brothers?
might as well go flame every single other pop rock band.

I'm just not a fan of their music. Besides, not everyone here bashes them, I just ignore them.

I think people flame them because what they are doing isn't anything special yet they get attention and millions because their dad or whoever it is with the Disney connections got them a deal hundreds of other bands worked harder for and deserve more.

I am surprised you say some of their songs are alright..shouldn't you be saying the songs written by a team of 15 Disney salaried songwriters were good? Bands that rely on corporate songwriters to write their lyrics, music and fabricate their own image are what is sucking the life out of modern music.

I'm tottally ambivalent towards the Jonas Brothers, I have ony heard of them in passing on web forums, and have no real idea who they are, other than the fact that they are some Disney sponsored crap.

i dont hate them.
some of their songs are very catchy
i just hate their 13 year old idiot fans who argue to the death over which one they're gonna marry
#13
nothing wrong with them they are honest about their commerciality and boy band ness. i dislike rock and metal bands who try to appeal to the girls and emo fags with their eye liner etc while still contending their 'brutality'

It's not hard to understand why a bunch of musicians who work their asses off to get any recognition at all get pissed off by people who apparently aren't that talented and get success handed to them with little effort.

people hate them because they and a shitload of others symbolize what's wrong with America: people who garner undeserved amounts of attention by having others write shit and take glossy posters and have parent corporates turn them into a brand.

+1. I do think that the Jonas Brothers are probably a bit over-hated, still, you can't help but be a little bit pissed that they're rich, famous, and untalented.

Meh, depending on what genre your in that's debatable, theres still a lot of talented people selling records, they just have to do it witout MTV or the radio.

I highly doubt that, even if they get writer credits that just means the songwriters have work for hire contracts.

I wouldn't call corporate-manufactured pop-rock harmless.
People who actually care for music and pour their souls into it get shafted, but these bone-heads get massive amounts of attention for doing basically nothing worthwhile.

Hell, I'm content with Megan Fox badmouthing Disney (which offically makes her the hottest chick of all time). Her comment on those big-wigs destroying kids lives for 15 minutes of fame is spot on. Spot on.

Pretty much, they are the anti thesis of what a musician should be. They aren't skilled musicians, they can't write a lyric to save their life, and they get dressed up by 50 year old corporate adults. They are a packaged group appealing to generic kids who will unfortunately grow up brainwashed and not thinking for themselves, spawning another generation of warped corporate money makers. In short, the soul has been sucked out of music.
#27
people hate them because their music is exactly what you said it was: harmless pop-punk. There are a TON of bands who play that exact music but never make it big. The thing is, the Jonas Brothers completely sold their souls to Disney from the get-go of their musical career, they probably put in the same amount of work in a month as the average band does in one day. All they have to do is walk on stage, play 5 to 10 simple songs, and walk off. And the result is that millions of girls are obsessed with them and they are teenage millionaires.

yeah, but not shitloads of records.

if you think about it,

a SHITLOAD of guys hated the beatles,
because all the girls were obsessed with them,
and they were rich and famous,
and they played simple rock and roll

now several decades later, everybody loves them.

This. And also, they don't even play their songs live. They walk around the audience (tv shows i've seen, unintentionally) wooing them while the muscians in the background play and yet nobody notices them.

Yeah, but the Beatles could write eallyamazing songs and weren't corporate tools, chances are people will have largely forgotten about the Jonas Brothers in about 5 years, unless they escape the clutches of Disney and start doing thier own thing.

as for the shitloads of records thing, It doesnt matter al that much realy, record sales tend not to do crap for most artists anyways, they just serve to enrich the CEOs at the record labels.

Because they are the epitomy of the term "soulless FUCKS". They embody everything that I hate in society.
I would call them sell outs, but that would imply that they had some sort of street cred.
