Angry jonas brothers, the next Beatles

I was watching tv and some reporter claimed that the Jonas Brothers were going to be the next Beatles. . . . .



i really hate the jonas brothers, i think comparing a bunch 13-17 year olds that can't even sing, let alone write music to revolutionary rock legends is extremely far fetched.

They say that about every new band that has came out since Beatlemania. When I was a teen, The New Kids On The Block were the next Beatles.

Something to consider: People scoffed when the media said the Beatles were bigger than Elvis.

Pretty much every new band that comes out are 'The next Beatles', so it's pretty much made the comment a joke. Within a few years they'll be added to the obsolete 'Next Beatles' pile with every other band you can't remember the name of.

It's just a marketing ploy; a line that publicists use to try and generate a headline for their act.

Yeah, they said something similar about that infamously annoying High School Musical people...

But, in order to be the next Beatles, shouldn't that mean people older than 5 to 13 year olds should have heard and love them too?

If a band were the next Beatles, you'd be hearing about their great talent in the news stories, not just their great popularity.

Even if a new band became as popular as (or more popular than) the Beatles, they wouldn't be "the next Beatles" unless they were backed up by music as good as that of the Beatles.

Jonas who?

In 1964, there was a Beatles article in the paper every day.

I'm not going to bag on three brothers that want to play rock stars, I had never heard of them until now, so I looked at one of their videos on youtube, I couldn't distinguish them from all the other pop bands out now. However, I will say what a twit Paul O'Grady is for mentioning on his show while interviewing them, that I think we're going to have a bit of beatlemania with you three. Since they're three brothers, maybe they should shoot for being the next Bee Gees.

Thanks on the info, Nick. I agree it's not polite to make fun out of them. If I did so myself, I apologize!

You know come to think of it, Paul O'Grady being from UK and an older gentleman, I can see why he mentioned Beatlemania re the Brothers Jonas, since the girls in the audience were screaming like they did for the lads in their heyday. But the next Beatles? No, not even the next Brothers Gibb. Enuf said.

Don't sweat it. Every single "kid" band that comes out everybody goes head over heels for them for like a month then next month it's "Who were the Jonas Brothers? The (insert singer/band name here) are the next Beatles!" The Jo. Bros will be on Where are they now? by the end of this year if not sooner.
