Jonas Bothers

1) They got signed by Disney. That to start off with is a failure.
2) There are four people in their band other than them:
John Taylor - Lead Guitar
Greg Garbowsky - Bass Guitar
Jack Lawless - Drums
Ryan Liestman - Keyboard
The Jonas guys actually only play guitar. Rhythm guitar. In their own band. Apparently Joe Jonas plays drums occasionally, but everyone would really rather he not, seeing as it's a rudimentary caveman beat that a 4th grade band student could achieve. None of them play bass. None. They at least ATTEMPT drums and guitar. But none of them even play bass. Or keyboard.
3) The voice. Sweet Jesus (sorry to the Christians), it's horrible! Honestly, I looked up a song by the Jonas Brothers on YouTube just to see what the hype was all about. I couldn't listen to the whole thing through. His voice is just horrible. And I honestly feel bad for him. If you listen a little more into the vocals, whoever lead vocals is actually has some talent. He isn't that bad of a singer. Honestly, he's pretty good. But something (possibly the tighter than skin pants) is making him contort his voice and go so ridiculously high and whatnot that it just sounds lousy. He actually has a bit of talent, and I kind of feel bad that he has to be dragged down by the band's style and the rest of the lack of talent. Only, I don't. Because he is in the band of his own choice, and sucks at guitar.
4) People defend them for "being so young." Honestly, I've heard you Jonas fans. "LEVE DEM ALONE!!1!! THEIR RLY YUNG AND HAV WAY MOR TALENT THEN U EVR WILL!!!1!!235!! UR JUST JEALOUS!!!!eleven!!!" Really, now? I think the oldest was seventeen at the release of their first album? Metallica was eighteen when they released "Hit The Lights" (their first demo.) [EDIT: I was wrong. Metallica was 15. And I believe it was called "No Life 'Till Leather"] Don't try to play the young card. I personally know musicians infinitely more talented than these kids who are way younger. I am totally jealous of their inability to solo, sing, or have children for wearing too tight of pants. Yep. You just hit the nail on the head, Jonas fans.
5) The tight pants and the hair. The pants are castrating them. They spend more time on their hair than their music. Enough said.
6) Even with all of this...the lack of talent, annoying fans, inability to play anything more complicated than "Happy Birthday," and horribly tight pants...I don't think most people would have a problem with them. Most people don't go looking for bands to hate and pick fights with fans. The horrible part is that they're popular despite all of this. People like this garbage. People listen to this garbage. People pay to see this garbage. The fact is that they are more popular and widespread than tons of far more talented bands who deserve a lot more acclaim than they're getting. It's the fact that they're stealing the spotlight from far more worthy people.

Overall, the music is lousy, they have a horrible image, and they shouldn't be popular.

I could write more, but for now I think that's enough to get some fans to yell at me.

Okay...The Jonas Brothers all play guitar and Nick can play the drums and keyboard beautifully. And if he can play guitar, chances are, he's learned bass by now. If you are just looking for an argument...Well, your points are invalid. Why does it make a band any less talented to be signed by Disney? Honestly, how on Earth would that affect their talent? They write ALL their own music and play their own instruments...and honestly. There are THREE brothers. Can you expect them to play EVERYTHING they need? So they have the rest of the band. They never claimed to be able to play everything and they give credit to their band, as well. Nick's voice is beautiful. I highly doubt he would've been on Broadway at such a young age if it wasn't. Do you honestly think they would've got this far if they had no talent? And you say that Jonas fans are annoying...It's because of peolpe like you, criticizing them with no ground, that Jonas fans jump at the chance to defend them. And is it really annoying that their fans like them and respect them enough to defend them? EVERY band's fan will do that. This "article" had no point whatsoever. If you don't have anything nice to say about them, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. And the fact that you said, "I could write more, but for now I think that's enough to get some fans to yell at me," just disgusts me.

and besides, if Disney is giving them a chance to write and record THEIR music, not what another record company WANTS them to sing, I give them props.....I could care less that they're signed to Disney......

where did you hear they don't write or perform most of their songs?? Yeah, they do! Look, I'm not trying to be mean, but you honestly don't have you're facts straight. I don't care if you don't like them, but don't go saying stuff that isn't true.....

It's fine that you like them. I didn't say that's a bad thing. This is my take on their sound, image, talent, and overall situation.

Even if you like their sound, most of my points still stand strong, however. They still got signed by Disney. They still don't play or write most of their own music. They still have irritating fans (then again, most bands do). They still get defended for being "young" when they really aren't. They still care more about appearance than music (which could be said for some 80's or hair metal bands, but still). Lastly, they still steal the spotlight from undeniably more talented musicians.

It's fine that you like them, I am not ragging on you for that by any means. I am, however, ragging on the Jonas Brothers. Sorry.
