Nanthan Followill, ‘Kiddy Pop Or Hip-Hop, That’s Pretty Much What America Is..’

Kings Of Leon have criticized their fellow Americans for their taste in music.
Drummer Nathan Followill insists that UK people are more receptive to rock music, while Americans prefer teen pop performers:

‘Most music gets ignored in the States unless it’s hip-hop or Hannah Montana or Disney music like the Jonas Brothers. Kiddy pop or hip-hop, that’s pretty much what America is. You may turn on the radio and you hear maybe one out of..

..10 songs that you’d consider decent. The UK is more open to all kinds of music. The fans are just insane in the UK, they are music lovers. You have
kids going to shows to see the bands, not going to a show to be seen there.’

    You don’t smell it? I smell it. Where the heck could it be coming from?” Nick demanded, glancing quickly up and down the hallway, seeing nothing but students, no clues to be found. The scent faded as Joe stared, and then was gone. Nick sighed.

    “Are you okay?” Joe asked, just as Kevin arrived.

    “Why isn’t Nick okay?” Kevin asked worriedly. “Are you sick, Nick? Do you have a fever?” Kevin pressed an anxious hand to Nick’s forehead and breathed a sigh of relief. “Nope, no fever.”

    “What smells like coffee?” Nick wondered aloud, ignoring his oldest brother.

    “Oh, I know this,” Kevin said. “Coffee.” He smiled like he’d won Jeopardy.

    Nick shook his head. “No, I mean, other than coffee.”

    “Coffee candles?” Joe offered.

    “Coffee cake?” Kevin said.

    “What about coffee cake?” Stella asked, appearing out of thin air, as usual.

    “Nick wants to know what smells like coffee, other than coffee,” Joe informed her.

    “Oh. Well, there’s coffee body spray, coffee lip gloss , coffee candy and I’m pretty sure they make coffee scented incense,” Stella informed them. “Why?”

    Kevin and Joe shrugged and looked at Nick expectantly.

    “I keep smelling coffee, but I don’t know where it’s coming from,” he told them.

    “Maybe someone spilt coffee on themselves earlier,” Stella suggested. “Though if they did, they should have immediately taken the garment off and applied stain remover; coffee stains are the most stubborn stains on the planet, excluding perhaps blood stains.”

    Joe raised his eyebrows flirtily. “Are you a part time assassin, Stella? Having trouble getting blood out of your ninja suit?”

    Stella deadpanned him. “Really, Joe, you should pay more attention in health class.”

    Joe blushed.

    Stella was probably right, Nick decided. If someone in his classes spilt coffee on themself, then it would make sense why he kept smelling it. And if it was now just a dried out stain, there was no point in looking for it. He sighed. How disappointing.

    Nick managed to make it through the day without going crazy each time the scent drifted his way, which happened with surprising frequency. He tried to ignore it, but it tempted him. He was glad it was so faint, if it had been any stronger, he might have given in. But, he considered himself strong-willed and resisted the urge to get a cup of coffee.

    The day was over and Nick was at his locker grabbing his books, when the scent came back, stronger this time. He looked around but saw only Macy at her locker a few feet away. He sniffed inconspicuously in her direction. Unfortunately, she noticed.

    “Did…. Did you just sniff me?” she asked nervously. “I don’t smell bad, do I?”

    “No,” Nick said, stepping closer as Macy’s eyes widened. “You smell like… coffee.”

    Many was standing with her back against the lockers now, Nick closing in front of her. He bent over so his head as next to hers and sniffed. And promptly went crazy.

    He grabbed her shoulders and her eyes widened ever more, as fear and surprise, plus the knowledge that Nick Lucas of JONAS was touching her, battled in her mind. He peered into her deer-in-the-headlights eyes and asked frantically, “Did you spill coffee on yourself today??”

    “N-no, I’m not that clumsy-” she answered before he interrupted.

    “Are you eating coffee candy?” She shook her head. “Wearing coffee scented perfume?” Another no. His mind went back to what Stella had mentioned earlier, and suddenly it clicked. “Coffee flavored lip gloss.”

    Macy hadn’t even finished nodding before Nick’s lips came crashing down onto hers, muffling her surprised squeak. He could taste the coffee on her lips and, just like an addict, wanted more. So he pushed her against the lockers and deepened the kiss, his mouth moving against her still one until she remembered herself and kissed him back.

    He’d closed his eyes, but opened them in surprise as she began to reciprocate. He even forgot about the coffee for a moment, cause Macy was a good kisser.

    They stood that way for a while, one of his hands against the lockers and one at the back of her neck, hers tangled in his curly hair. They kissed long after the coffee flavored lip gloss was gone, long after Nick had forgotten why he’d kissed her in the first place. When they finally broke apart, gasping, Macy remembered something.

    “Wow,” she said. “I didn’t faint.”

    Nick laughed, then smirked at her. “And it looks like I have a new addiction.”

    He’s from America. But it really is obnoxious of him to be ripping apart fans in his own country. Maybe he and his band should just move to the UK and we’ll see how successful they all are in a few years. Because I hate to break it to KOL, you don’t achieve world-wide success without hitting it big in America.

    Sweaty. Shirtless. Sexy.

    Those were the three words going trough Mia’s head as she watched the gardener pushing the lawn mower on the scorching hot summer day. She of course was up in her room, in the nice, cold air-conditioned room. She was peeking out the round window that was right next to her bed. Her laptop was sitting next to her, receiving instant messages from one of her friends. However, she was too occupied with watching the curly-haired hottie with an unbelievably toned body, walking back and forth one story below her.

    He was just being cruel. Being that hot with that little amount of clothes on, it should be a crime. She was having the worst fantasies right now, with the thought of running out there and doing it right there in the front yard. She thought about all those movies and television shows she’d watched and thought about those kinky scenes where the girl walked out of the house wearing the smallest sundress and held a pitcher of lemonade, while the guy automatically threw himself at her.

    She actually was beginning to think that would be a good idea. However, when she looked down to see her pajamas still on, she knew that wouldn’t work. She quickly got up and ran to her closet, searching frantically threw it for the dress she used to wear down to the pool in the old apartment building. It was probably meant to be worn with a bathing suit underneath it since the length of it was so short, but a thong and bra would do just as nicely when trying to seduce somebody. She put on a pair of flip-flops and shook her hair out into what would be considered sexy hair. After spraying her favorite coconut perfume on herself and skipping to the kitchen to make a glass of iced tea, she opened the door to see him, standing by his truck, putting the lawn mower away. He was wiping sweat off his forehead and she couldn’t help but bite down on her lip as she looked up and down, examining every single visible inch of his bare skin.

    Those perfect abs, muscular arms, sexy long legs, and that intense face, this boy was clearly taken right out of one of her dreams. He looked up to see her staring and immediately smiled at her. He started to walk closer to her and she wanted to pounce.

    “Lawns mowed, hedges trimmed, flowers watered, and the mess is cleaned up.” He explained to her as he removed his dirty gloves and put them in his back pocket.

    “Oh, you must be so thirsty.” She said, as seductive as she could be and handed him the glass.

    “Oh, well, thank you.” He said with a sincere smile. As he titled his head back and chugged the drink, she just continued to stare at him, watching every muscle move in the slightest way. He finished with a loud “Ahh” and handed her the glass back, never once dropping that gorgeous smile of his.

    It was then he got a good look at her. The low cut dress that showed off her cleavage, the ruffled bottom that stopped mid-thigh, and the ribbon around her waist that showed off her curves. He stood awkwardly, trying to hide the bulge in his shorts.

    “I’m sure you’ll be wanting your pay now?” she asked, slyly smiling with the idea sizzling in her head. She played the act though and pulled out her purse.

    “Well now, I’m sure there must be another way you could repay me.” he must have caught her act, either that or scene the same shows she had.

    “Well, why don’t you come in and we’ll negotiate that.” She stepped aside and let him walk in. Once the door was shut and the blinds we closed, she jumped onto him and kissed him with the most force and intensity she could. He didn’t hold back either, quickly sliding his hands up her dress and removing her thong as she worked to untie the halter top around her neck. He placed her on the floor and slipped the dress off her. Once she sat up, she was undoing the button to his pants and they dropped to his ankles. He kicked his shoes towards the door and they bounced off the wall. He stepped out of his shorts and she dropped his boxers as he tore off the last piece of her clothing. Her hot pink, lacey bra.

    She was on her knees and he was leaned against the dinning room table. Moans, groans, grunts and all types of noises were filling the empty house. He could barely keep balance when she stopped and pulled away while her mouth made a pop noise sliding off him. That alone caused him to drop onto his knees on the floor.

    “My name’s Mia by the way.” She was able to breathe out as he quickly and swiftly slid into her.

    “Nicholas. But I’m called Nick.” He said followed by a moan as he continued to thrust.

    One hour, thirty minutes, and a million moans later, Nick ended by collapsing on top of her dropping both hands on either side of her head. Her back was arched up and she dropped to the floor with a thump and her breathing uneven and spastic.

    seriously though.

  • eh

    do we play pop? yea. america is definitely guilty of being pop driven but i wouldnt say kiddy pop. i have yet to hear jonas on either one of my top 40 radio stations (atlanta) since S.O.S. maybe heard burnin up a couple times. ‘the climb’ has been doing well but before that miley got played maybe every once in a while.

    i do think the UK is more receptive of rock, but not ALL genres like he makes it seem otherwise you would see the hiphop, the country, the pop, etc like you do here. but even then, some people just aren’t into music like that. i know if i want to find better music, top 40 is the last place to be. you are going to have to do some scouting yourself. eh. whatever.

  • Tashahahaha

    I live in the UK and its crap, they always think they’ve discovered the next big band, theyre all big head nobodys really and i’d much rather turn on the radio and hear Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana.

    Wow. I agree that we need more variety on American radio. I rarely hear any of my favorite music on the radio. That includes rarely hearing JB unless I request and lots of times they still don’t play it. He’s picking on JB and Miley to get his point across because they are big but not so big on the radio. It was kind of rude to throw out specific names. He could have a little more respect for a band he’s actually met and likes his music.

    “I’ll be over again in two weeks.” He said as he made his way to the door.

    “I’ll mark my calendar.” She called back and before he closed the door, he winked at her.

    I think everyone left but, time for my last word. What I really hate about JB is the songs they promote. Like, all their other songs on their record are so much better than Paranoid (except What Did I Do To Your Heart and Don’t Charge Me For The Crime) I mean, the best song they EVER promoted was WYLMITE. Hold On and S.O.S. were good too. But WYLMITE was MEANINGFUL and those are the songs I wish they would release as their singles….anyways. Haha. I’m done.

  • lauren

    this makes me sad because JB, MIley, Demi and almost any of the disney kids have all been quoted saying they like Kings of Leon…that probably hurt them a little.

    I do see where they’re coming from though.. but this isn’t the UK this is the United States. besides.. I don’t understand where there complaints are.. Kings of Leon has a higher demographic than Miley and JB have… so it’s not like they’re losing any possible fans to Miley Cyrus.

    at the same time.. I don’t know what he’s talking about because on normal radio (not radio disney) I never hear any of the Disney kids on the normal radio because they can’t get picked up for it. The only DIsney kids songs I think I’ve ever heard on normal radio is When You Look Me in The Eyes (it used to come on a lot like 2 years ago) See You Again, and The Climb. otherwise, I’ve never heard any… the only people played on the radio now are people like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Chris Daughtry. then again, doesn’t it depend on what type of radio station they’re listenting to? why can’t they just listen to a “rock” radio station, that way they can ignore any “pop” stuff to begin with.

    I love KOL, but c’mon guys.

  • Lauren

    okay, you cant hate on jonas brothers and hannah montanna for being successful. i love JB for there talent they show us.

    its not fair how KOL said that about them. Jonas brothers are big because they worked at it for their whole lives, without complaining like KOL is doing now.
    yeah they are stating an opinion, but they are attacking JB for being successful?
    thats jealously right theree.

    && to tell you all the truth, when an artist goes big, it all depends on who they work with, and how much time they spend on them.

    and thats true bc i was listening to that in an MJ interview.

If you want to be taken seriously in the music industry, you can’t be with disney. Simple as that.

    I sorta agree I guess. The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus are deff teen pop. However, I don’t usually hear them getting alot of airplay on major radio stations. You hear a song or two from them every once and a while, but there’s no way they get as much airplay as the rest of the brilliant artists out there. That being said, they’re successful, and you’ve GOT TO respect ANYONE that can reach the amount of success they’ve gained.

    Also, I happened to take a look at the top 40 singles chart in the UK a week ago, and practically ALL of their songs were songs by American artists. They do have some great acts and artists out there, but America has such a WIDE selection of genres and popular songs. From Country, to R&B, pop, soft-rock, alternative rock, contemporary,techno, soul, jazz… just everything. Kings of Leon have to understand that they’re competing with artists from every other genre out there.

  • Anonymous

    Kol aren’t bashing JB. They just called them kiddy pop. Which to an extent is true. And all you do hear in America is Lady Gaga and Flo-Rida. The UK does appreciate rock more than America. This is coming from a KOL and Jb fan.

    “Because I hate to break it to KOL, you don’t achieve world-wide success without hitting it big in America.”
    thats so true. honestly, do you think the beatles would have been as big as they were if they were only known in england? thats not me downing their talent or music, im just saying they became massive when they got to the US.

    ————————————-
    The Beatles popularity exploded after they came to America. Bands can be popular in their own countries but if they are not popular here, they do not become huge successes.

    Like I said, if KOL doesn’t like the tastes of American music fans, then they should just move over to the UK – since they seem to think people over there are much more “appreciative” of music. Let’s see how the money rolls in for them just living and performing over there.

    And yes, I think what they said about JB is insulting. JB has done nothing but talk those guys up over and over again – which, in turn, I think can only HELP to get KOL music exposed to a different audience. Fuck them for categorizing JB the way they did.

    Sorry, but this is very true. Money is the only thing that drives music in the US. Smaller more talented groups are often over looked because they don’t have the pretty young band members. Open your minds and let the music flow.

    I’ve been to over 30 Jonas shows and they don’t even compare to a KOL show.
    Kings of Leon have staying power and won’t fizzle out. They sold out
    Madison Square Garden even faster than Jonas did, and play the same arenas
    all over the world and they BOTH sell them out. KOL aren’t from the UK, they’re
    from here and what Nathan said is right. And for everyone saying JB’s music isn’t
    kiddy pop? Look at the age demographics.. All kids and teens. But KOL on the other
    hand, they have a a wider age range of people listening to them.
    They speak their mind.. JB doesn’t because they would get in trouble with Disney.
    So everyone saying that KOL should just shut up, why don’t you? So because somebody
    criticized your precious Disney music you now hate that ones who criticize it?
    Grow up, please.

    i dont think KOL dislikes miley and JB (well they probably do) but i dont think thats what theyre trying to say. theyre just saying that whenyou turn on the radio all you usually hear is kid pop. which is basically true. whenever i turn on the radio its usually miley playing. not saying im not a huge fan of the “disney kids” (i.e JB, miley, demi, selena) but im saying that KOL has a point. a very good point

    sucks that he would say that because JB is a fan of kings of leon

    He’s from America. But it really is obnoxious of him to be ripping apart fans in his own country.

    “Because I hate to break it to KOL, you don’t achieve world-wide success without hitting it big in America.”
    thats so true. honestly, do you think the beatles would have been as big as they were if they were only known in england? thats not me downing their talent or music, im just saying they became massive when they got to the US.

    My point was that he’s dissing the tastes of American music fans. If he thinks so poorly of the American music audience, then I suggested he just stay over in the UK and see how popular and successful KOL stays. In my opinion, this guy is biting the hand that feeds him. The American music audience is a huge reason for the success of his band.

  • awwhh. jomilla is love.

    seriously i love jonas brothers and KOL.
    KOL are MASSIVE over here the UK, they sell out arena tours, where as JB can’t even sell out a few dates :\
    i’m sorry but its the truth over here we have such a variety of songs on the radio, and WAY less teenie boppers.

    UGGGGH i hate these sorts of posts when the answer is just so simple !!!
    “kiddy pop music ” or not .. JB AND MILEY PONES KOL i don’t care about uk or not ( though that jb and miley are known worldwide .. but that’s not the point ) the point is that whether kol likes them or not you can not denie that jb and miley are the biggest thing and at the top right .. so if their drummer wants to state his opinion let him say it it’s not like his mind is gonna change jb’s and miley’s popularity !!! and KOL is not bashing the jonas brothers cuz they had an interview once and said that they love jb and that they met them and thought that they were the nicest guys ever and so down to earth

  • asdfghjkl

    i love how some people on this are going to stop listening to KOL because they don’t like the jonas brothers.
    grow up, guys. it’s music. most bands have douches for lead singers, but if they write beautiful lyrics and you like their sound, why can’t you like the band?
    im not saying KOL are douches, but it shouldn’t matter. It’s not like they’re your friends, but if you enjoy their music.. are you really gonna stop listening to them because of their opinion?

    I’ve been to over 30 Jonas shows and they don’t even compare to a KOL show.
    Kings of Leon have staying power and won’t fizzle out. They sold out
    Madison Square Garden even faster than Jonas did, and play the same arenas
    all over the world and they BOTH sell them out. KOL aren’t from the UK, they’re
    from here and what Nathan said is right. And for everyone saying JB’s music isn’t
    kiddy pop? Look at the age demographics.. All kids and teens. But KOL on the other
    hand, they have a a wider age range of people listening to them.
    They speak their mind.. JB doesn’t because they would get in trouble with Disney.
    So everyone saying that KOL should just shut up, why don’t you? So because somebody
    criticized your precious Disney music you now hate that ones who criticize it?
    Grow up, please.

    Kol have a point here.People in the U.S will listen to a catchy song and say it’s genius. Let’s face it, people think thatHannah Montanna is for a younger audience, butwe don’t see 5 yr olds going around listening to Hannah Montanna on their high tech ipods. Well, at least theyre not supposed to.Just face it, JB and Hannah Montanna are ameateurs.People think of JB as pros, but they’re not. All they do is put some easy chords together to make it catchy and then find some words that ryhme and put it together. The lyrics are meaningless. When you listen to a JB song, you only listening to the catchy beat.
    Songs that are well written, professionally composed, and sung from someone’s heart is not credited enough in the U.S. I just hope that people start reconigzing the real musicians in the industry.

    I absolutely LOVE Kings Of Leon n I’m from UK. I have to admit we do have more of a variety on the music side & sometimes it seems like we appreciate good / differant music more.
    I am fond of abitta JoBro I have to say but not CONSTANTLY
    I completely adore Demi & Miley though
    Demi is just in a totally differant league in my opinion, they’re all talented but she’s just brilliant.
    I guess if you wanted to get a glimpse of how the US & Britain are differant

    at the same time.. I don’t know what he’s talking about because on normal radio (not radio disney) I never hear any of the Disney kids on the normal radio because they can’t get picked up for it. The only DIsney kids songs I think I’ve ever heard on normal radio is When You Look Me in The Eyes (it used to come on a lot like 2 years ago) See You Again, and The Climb. otherwise, I’ve never heard any… the only people played on the radio now are people like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Chris Daughtry. then again, doesn’t it depend on what type of radio station they’re listenting to? why can’t they just listen to a “rock” radio station, that way they can ignore any “pop” stuff to begin with.

    I love KOL, but c’mon guys.

    the only other places ive heard them on is top twenty; sirus hits. hmph. lol

    You guys are about the dumbest comparing a teen pop group to an alternative group. Have you ever noticed that the music industry caters to younger audiences who don’t know shit about music or the art of it? See this is why I dislike my generation sooo much because you guys don’t know shit about what good and artful music is. Who cares about who sold more and who did what more. That doesnt matter. What matters is who is going to have more longetivity and I say Kings of Leon is because they are not a boy band. Jonas Brothers is a boy band and everyone knows that boy bands last for a certain amount of time and then little girlies move on to the next big boy band, which will happen. That’s why JB always say they are afraid that they won’t be a huge boy band because they know its going to happen. KOL is absolutely right about the music industry here. We know nothing about creativity, while the rest of the world does. That’s why The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elton John, and the Spice Girls became global phenomenons while the only American acts that became global phenomenons was Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Britney Spears. American music scene sucks monkey balls and as a proud American, I’m ashamed of it. That’s why the only song that is a summer smash is Boom Boom Pow and I got a feeling. Then MJ died and people realized how much they missed the good music and its sad that it took someones death to realize it.

    I’m sorry I wrote this long ass paragraph, but you guys bashing KOL for speaking nothing but the truth shows me how ignorant and retarded this generation truly is.

    what exactly is considered as “decent music”? decent music is just a matter of opinion. I may say Miley is considered decent music to me and someone else says it’s crap. Heck, I may say Celine Dion is considered decent music and someone will say her music is crap. It’s all a matter of opinion. I’ve never heard any JB songs on the radio, and the only Miley songs I’ve ever heard are See You Again and The Climb.. otherwise I have to rely on my ipod to be able to listen to their music.. so what does he mean they’re the only thing played on the radio? maybe he’s listening to the wrong radio station.. maybe he needs to stick to the rock radio station. I do agree that hip hop/rap is played ALOT on regular mainstream channels though. but it sounds like he’s just listening to the wrong radio stations.

    I agree with them to a certain extent.It really depends on what radio station you listen to and where you live cause where I live it is more rap music and hip hop played but alot of rock too. I do think it’s rude of them to point out other artistslike that. JB used to be kind of disney but their new music is kind of breaking out of that. I love Kings of Leon though. I personally listen to more metal and hard rock but I listen to a little of everything so they shouldn’t point at all Americans.

    Umm…what they’re saying is kind of true.

    I love JB and Miley, but they are pop artists (lol @ those of you who think they qualify as rock) and majority of their fans are 16 and under (I am aware they have older fans, but most do fall into this age group).

    Therefore, they sing kiddy pop. I don’t think that that is necessarily a bad thing. I mean I can relate to a JB or Miley song much better than KOL. However, KOL are speaking the truth.

    regardless of who you are, you shouldn’t be taking things for granted. and this guy from KOL needs to shut his mouth already because i’m tired of hearing them talk shit about everyone else in the music industry. if they don’t like it, then they shouldn’t be in the business. have some respect because this is how you lose fans. UK bands are fucking annoying :) coldplay is the worst band i’ve ever heard because their lead singer is the biggest cry baby in the world. i think i can now place KOL at number 2 on that list.

  • Jonas 4 Canada

    No, the Jonas Brothers could change their band name, I don’t know.
    Just people have already labeled the Jonas Brothers as a bad group.
    If they like rename the group, people wouldn’t be so quick to judge.

    I don’t know, I love JB, and I know they are respected by a lot of people.
    I just hope they gain more respect in the future.

    It’s really immature for some of you guys to completely rule out King of Leon just because they said something about the JB. They’re entitled to their own opinion, and honestly I didn’t think what the drummer said was rude. Maybe the whole generalization of Americans was rude, but the whole Disney act thing is true. Sadly, no matter how much the JB tried they’ll always be associated with Disney.

  • ~annonny.

    Changing a band’s name does not get you respect.
    if you think that’s the way you earn it you’re
    WRONG.

    MY CAPS LOCKS ARE BROKEN…lol. But seriously Kings Of Leon are a lot bigger than Jonas Brothers & in the majoritys opinion more talented. I’m not saying that the majority are always right but Kings Of Leon are a much bigger band. I’m sure Jonas Brothers would love to emulate them someday.

    absolutely LOVE Kings Of Leon n I’m from UK. I have to admit we do have more of a variety on the music side & sometimes it seems like we appreciate good / differant music more.
    I am fond of abitta JoBro I have to say but not CONSTANTLY
    I completely adore Demi & Miley though
    Demi is just in a totally differant league in my opinion, they’re all talented but she’s just brilliant.
    I guess if you wanted to get a glimpse of how the US & Britain are differant
    youtube The Brit Awards 2009, n you’ll see how differantly stuff gets done over here ..The Brits were EPIC this year.
    ——————–
    Haha so true! But tbh demi isn’t really known over here yet. Hopefully she will be soon. Mileys and Jb are starting to do a little better but they aren’t that popular. Ye brit awards were good this year…It seems like our award shows are totally different to american ones.

  • HI

    im sorry, but the fact that nick ‘writes songs in 5 minutes’ proves how shit they are.
    no one can do that. they don’t have meaning or feeling. im not saying they aren’t catchy, but im 15 and i’ve already grown out of catchy bands. i want meaningful stuff because music is meant to be art.
    you might be different, but i’ve left my boybands in the past and the jonas brothers could never compare to KOL.

    no actually it’s not !! did you ever see any kol posts here ?? do you think that this post of their drummer would’ve got 300+ comments if he didn’t talk about the jonas brothers and miley ?? NO !! i know you must be a kol fan but you can’t denie that miley and jb are the biggest thing that they can be right now !!! i mean come on even miley cyrus ( who is having alot of hate these days ) though all of that her tweets are news and everyone is intersted in her

  • Carolinaajobrosfan(:

    Okay there’as a few wrong things with the post in general.
    They called Miley Hannah Montana, Ouch! but even though I’m a huge Jb fan, I agree with him with what he said about America and the Uk
    But for the people commenting here, guys why the fuck are you putting Demi/Miley/Jb in the same level?
    I mean miley and jb are HUGE, this guy probably doesn’t know ho demi is, lol she’s not as big.
    Anyway I agree but it’s kinda rude what he said about “decent” music, I think Jb’s music is amazing and fuck him if he can’t see that.

    Guys, KOL didn’t tell the Jonas Brothers that their music sucks and is shit. They said that they’re kiddy pop/Disney I think you guys are confusing those two. He didn’t criticize them by saying they sucked … They just generalized them … I mean I was defending JB up until I hear comments on here saying that they’ve basically told JB that they sucked, which they did not. READ CLEARLY. Now I feel bad because THEY DIDN’T. Stop putting words into HIS mouth.

    I really like Kings of Leon and I think their music is great, but i think it is completely unfair to group JB into the ‘kiddy pop’ genre, their music is much deeper, lyrically and musically, not to mention it is completely created by them. Just because they were made famous by Disney doesn’t mean that their music is for little kids and is all manufactured,because anyone who has listened knows that it is not. I agree with his statement (although Im canadian, its pretty much the same here) because that is all music has become, however JB does not belong in that catergory.

    Kings Of Leon are amazing.

    And they’re right.

    Music these days is POPULAR, but not GOOD.

    I’m a 90’s kid.
    And the 90’s had THE best music.

    We didn’t have Soulja Boy, we had 2pac and Biggie.
    We didn’t have JB, we had Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

    And we didn’t have this shit that Disney calls music.
    **********************
    you’re a 90’s kid? how old are you exactly?
    I was born in 1989 and tupac and biggie were killed in like 96/97…and I don’t remember that happening at all (I WAS LIKE 6)….and Kurt Kobain died in 1994 and I definitely don’t remember that happening (I WAS LIKE 4) so how old are you if you lived when all that was happening and you actually remember when it happened?

    and even better question..should you be on oceanup if you’re over the age of say 22 or 23? probably not..

    Good now I can stop buying and listening the Kings of Leon music. Since they have done pretty well here in the US, either they are stupid for criticizing their money-paying listeners or their music also falls into one of those same categories of music that all musically-challenged Americans listen to. Sounds like sour grapes for having to work too hard for their accomplishments in the US. Historically, UK acts have had a much easier shot at the US markets than US acts have in the UK.

    Well this all depends on what radio stations you listen to right? I mean if you turn on radio disney then ya all you’re gonna hear is disney pop

    If you turn on Kiss FM all you are gonna hear is hip-hop.

    I listen to Star 98.7 and they play mainly alternative and there is also KROQ which plays rock music.
    I like rock and alternative but I also like pop. Everyone has different tastes and to say that America only like hip hop and pop is wrong.

    Ya Disney kinda exploits their stars, but that’s because they have the money to do so. So blame Disney not the musicians. JB’s music has gotten sooo much better over the years and they don’t need Disney anymore to do well since they have accumulated a fan base.

  • http://M Anonymous

    I think JB need to leave Disney otherwise they won’t be respected as musicians. And I’m sure they can do WAY BETTER on their own. Because they DO got talent, they can sing and they can write good songs.
    So, I hope they leave Disney and it’s not that I hate it but if JB leave it, they’d have a more serious career. Same with Demi, maybe not everyone notices it, but her voice is beyond amazing.
    That’s my opinion.

    and im not paying 100 dollars to go to their show just to “show my face”. im going because its going to be a great show.

    why dont YOU sell out some shows here in america then come talk to me.
    theres like a couple million people in the uk
    theres almost half a billion here in the united states.
    so dont think your all that just because a couple of people like you in the uk.

    I know he’s going to be a great dad, so will Kevy!
    Don’t know about Nick yet, I think he’s too young to feel that way about kids.
    Like Joe and Kevin are older, so they think about kids and treat kids like that. Nick doesn’t seem mean to kids, but he’s not all fatherly with them yet.

    JB i kiddy pop you guys. AND THAT’S NOT A BAD THING
    I’d rather have my little sister listen to them than Lil’ Wayne rapping about pussies and weed. the JB is geared towards family, young kids. Remember what Joe said in the rolling stone article,

    “Personally, I’m not in the band to say, ‘Hey you need to respect us, take us seriously,’ because that’s kind of stupid. We’re doing it because we love it, and we don’t care what age group we attract. If they like our music, and if they don’t, fine.”

  • Anonymous

    Well I agree that Miley has young fans but Jonas brothers have fans of ALL AGES from the age of 10 to 21, and I mean it I’ve been to 7 concerts and they have fans of all ages while Miley has teen fans but anyway unless this guy listens to Radio disney he’s bullshiting, Jb’s music is NEVER played on Radio stations well my radio station is playing Paranoid like crazy now but the only Jb song you would hear EVERYWHERE was S.O.S and the only Miley songs played in many radio stations, See you again and The climb so Idk what he’s talking about lol.

    On my radio station, its all mostly hiphop, pop (as in Lady Gaga) and alternative, not much from pop.
    The only other artists outside that genre that are played are Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift.

    Well he has a point.
    Whenever I turn on the radio, it’s mostly pop or hip-hop.
    And from what I’ve been hearing, it sounds like in the UK it plays a variety of music.
    Oh and he was not bashing JB or Miley.
    He was just saying they are kiddy pop.
    Maybe he just doesn’t listen to them.
    It doesn’t automatically make him a hater.

    I’ve been to over 30 Jonas shows and they don’t even compare to a KOL
    show. Kings of Leon have staying power and won’t fizzle out. They sold out
    Madison Square Garden even faster than Jonas did, and play the same
    arenas
    all over the world and they BOTH sell them out. KOL aren’t from the
    UK, they’re
    from here and what Nathan said is right. And for everyone saying JB’s
    music isn’t
    kiddy pop? Look at the age demographics.. All kids and teens. But KOL
    on the other
    hand, they have a a wider age range of people listening to them.
    They speak their mind.. JB doesn’t because they would get in trouble
    with Disney.
    So everyone saying that KOL should just shut up, why don’t you? So
    because somebody
    criticized your precious Disney music you now hate that ones who
    criticize
    it?
    Grow up, please

    nooooo. indie music isn’t boring at all.
    specially indie rock. go listen to all of bloc party’s old albums and they’re amazing.
    their new stuff isn’t as good, but they used to be phenomenal.
    and i only date models are probably one of the best bands i’ve heard all year.
    but if you go onto their myspace, they haven’t been commented since april or something.
    i just think it’s sad that some bands don’t get the support they should.

    To everyone who says that JB isnt kiddy pop. They are.
    Also to everyone who said theyve matured. They probably have but not enough to be taken seriously.
    Face it, KOL have fans aging from all age groups and both genders. They are taken beyond seriously in the music industry. Jb not so much. A bunch of 12-16 year old girls who think they’re the best and can’t actually accept that there ARE better bands then them. I mean even i cant take u seriously.

    I live in Australia and I prolly heard paranoid three times in 2 weeks [including tv and radio] and thats about it. Whenever i turn on the tv or radio KOL is playing or about to be played.
    Face it, JB arent as big as you think they are.

JB introduced KOL to ALOT of people. and KOL is american. you dont bite the hands that feeds you boys.

    Music these days is POPULAR, but not GOOD.

    I’m a 90’s kid.
    And the 90’s had THE best music.

    We didn’t have Soulja Boy, we had 2pac and Biggie.
    We didn’t have JB, we had Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

    And we didn’t have this shit that Disney calls music.

    How old are you dude? like 35?

    ***********************************

    thats what I’m saying! seriously.. I consider myself a 90’s kid because I was born in 1989, and I remember their music being played..but not when they were actually still alive. Tupac, Biggie, and Kurt Cobain were all dead before I knew who they were..I grew up with the Spice Girls, BSB, NSYNC, and Britney Spears….so that person has to be atleast 3 or 4 years older than me to remember that..

  • Johanna – Sweden

    I’m from Sweden and I must admit with the UK comments here here. Miley, Demi and JB aren’t so famous here in
    Sweden either. The music here is much more varied
    and You never hear JB, Miley (except for “the climb”) or
    or Demi on the radio or MTV. I think it’s because as
    you all say, it’s because they’re in Disney, and they need to get out of there.

    I love Demi and JB and they’re great musicians and songwriters and I really hope that they will be more respected and taken seriously in the future.

    Swedish music is also very popular outside Sweden so Swedish music is played a lot here and more rock music like The Killers, The Hives, KOL, and RnB..

    Can people just stop comparing JB to KOL??
    First of all, KOL and JB ARE NOT THE SAME AGE! The band members of KOL are like in their late 20’s or early 30’s. So OBVIOUSLY their music would be more mature. Joe, Nick, and Kevin are still very young, and I’m so positive that once they’re KOL’s age, they’ll be HUGE. But still, if you actually give JB songs a chance and listen to their lyrics, they’ve already matured as artists at such a young age. KOL’s music is very good, but I just don’t feel connected to their music as I do with JB. I am disappointed with what Nate said, because the JoBros are definitely NOT kiddy pop. If you actually go to their concerts, you don’t really see a lot of 5-10 year olds; it’s sorta rare. No offense to KOL fans, but I don’t think their concerts compare to JB’s. The boys are entertainers as well, and you can tell they’re having so much fun on stage. Their vocals are crazy amazing live. They’re just overall amazing musicians. So all in all, everyone has their own opinion, but there’s no need to bash others for their style of music. Why do I need to like what others would like? And why am I judged for the music I do like? That doesn’t make sense. I’m a HUGE JB fan, but it’s such a shame that people think of me as a teenie just because of it. But whatever… say what you want, but that’s not going to stop me from loving JB.

  • dfyhtgfs

    oh well i guess they arent very good themselves,
    considering they are played on my radio all the time,
    also while a couple other great songs play.
    that was a fail on their part.

    and also yes, we do have TERRIBLE taste in music,
    but i can tell you one thing
    first of all- the jonas brothers are not kiddy pop,
    i dont care what anyone says. you can tell me they are
    gay, say they arent talented, whatever. not. kiddy. pop.
    they are anything but. sure, they have some pop music,
    but they are talented and play so much more than that.
    hannah montana sure, but even miley cyrus i guess you
    could say shes a little more than that. i dont like her,
    but even i wouldnt call her kiddy pop.

    i personally think the whole hip hop part is true.
    i dont see how anyone can get enjoyment from just rap music.
    but now i feel bad for JB, since they like worship them lmao

    it annoying that he made it seem like they are soooo much more receptive though. when they are not. most of the UK is rock and various types of rock, modern, alternative. they are no better. the states are the home of country music which is something that has never been big there. yes, we are a pop culture but because of pop culture we got greats like ‘michael jackson.’ and yes the hip/r&b does play a big part as well. if anything i see more acceptance of difference sounds then they do. or at least, on the same exact playing field. and if anything, even though jonas and miley get pimped out to know end, its not like they both get crazy airplay or number 1 singles. soo. i think hes a tad confused.

  • http://myspace.com/8101973 abcdefaly

    i completely agree with nate. america isn’t very receptive of rock music or a lot of other genres of music that aren’t typically forced out through the media. don’t get me wrong, i do like the jonas brothers and i love demi, but music, as an art, has so much more to offer than what you hear on your local top 40 radio station…the stuff you hear on the radio and see on tv is usually very generic, and it’s unfortunate that a lot of hardworking and talented artists and bands don’t get the recognition and attention that they deserve.

    haha agree
    i’m actually from mexico but no one here actually know who is kings of leon or whatever they’re called… And you can ask anybody who are the Jonas Brothers and they may hate them but they know who they are.

    It’s sad Kings Of Leon hate Jonas Brothers.
    Jonas Brothers said they really like their music.
    Haha JB fans (like me) listen to it (KOL) cause JB likes it. But now that they say they hate JB… bye-bye Kings Of Leon!!

    KOL just popped out of no where all of a sudden and now they’re ‘Gods’ wtf? I heard about JB back in early 2006 when they were on MTV on that ‘Upcoming bands’ special. BEFORE THEY SIGNED ON TO DISNEY. Columbia had to drop all their artists for some reason, and they had no where else to go besides Hollywood Records.

  • Emily Ford

    i completely agree with nate. america isn’t very receptive of rock music or a lot of other genres of music that aren’t typically forced out through the media. don’t get me wrong, i do like the jonas brothers and i love demi, but music, as an art, has so much more to offer than what you hear on your local top 40 radio station…the stuff you hear on the radio and see on tv is usually very generic, and it’s unfortunate that a lot of hardworking and talented artists and bands don’t get the recognition and attention that they deserve.

    —-

    But it totally depends on what station you’re listening to. Like me and my brother never agree on stations. I listen to the mainstream. He likes the more rock. So it really depends on what station.

    While I do agree all the radio plays is hip hop and Pop music with computerized voices, I don’t agree how they called JB “kiddy pop”. And actually my music collection is spread out completely.

    And this folks is why JB/Miley/Demi fans needs to settle whatever stupid “beef” that exists on OceanUp and other sites.

    ALL of these guys needs our support. We need to stand up against fuckers who try to bash on them like this KOL douche, and not against each other. Some of the world does see them as not legit. All 3 fanbases should “unite” and support/promote them to the world. Make your You Tube videos. Set up a blog. Branch outside of OceanUp and Twitter and really use logic and intellecutal design to show the world why we love them and why that is a good thing.

    As long as their fans are seen as jealous, petty, hating on other people teenies? …no one will take them (or us) seriosuly. Time for the fan bases to grow up and pay it forward in support of these 3 acts who have brought so much joy to our lives with their music. PEACE!

    Summary: Macy has fallen head over heels for Nick. Problem is, she’s in a relationship but not any normal relationship.

    “Do you know where my chem book is?” Stella asked going through both her lockers.

    Macy coughed getting the blondes attention while holding up her book.

    “Thanks, where was it?” Stella smiled grabbing it from her.

    “ It was on top of you locker.” Macy said laughing

    “How did it end up there?” Stella asked looking up at the top of the lockers.

    “Beats me.” Macys replied as they headed off to lunch.

    “YO YO YO” Joe said heading towards them followed by the rest of the Lucas brothers

    “Hey” They said while waiting for them to catch.

    :”Hey baby,” Joe Said smiling and putting his arms around her and giving her a quick kiss.

    “Hey.” She smiled back and turned her attention “Hey Nick,Kevin.”

    “Hey.” They replied

    “Hey guys” Macy said

    “Hey, Mace.” Kevin said giving her a hug and Nick doing the same.

    Macy smiled but inside there was pain that struck her when they hugged her.

    “Guys I’m soooooo hungry!” Macy exclaimed putting her hand on her stomached trying to get it off her mind.

    Everyone laughed

    “That’s why were heading to lunch right now.” Stella laughed; she took Joe’s arm off her and stood next to Macy putting her arm around her.

    “Best friend have I ever told you how adorable you are.” Stella smiled while the two walked ahead of them.

    Macy laughed “Oh, maybe one or twice but hey I’m not complaining.” She looked back making sure the boys were right behind them, and she saw Joe pouting. “Best friend I think boyfriend is sad you left him for me.”

    Stella turned around and looked at her boyfriend “Aww baby, you know I love you.” She walked towards him and gave a peck on the lips. The peck turned to a make out session.

    “Whoa!” Nick exclaimed “ Kevin, Mace lets go before I lose my appetite.”

    The three proceeded they’re way to the cafeteria. Stella and Joe joining them minutes later.

    “Macy where’s Andrew?” Asked Stella

    Macy cringed at his name “Um I don’t know, I didn’t see him all day.” She looked around for him and sighed in relief she didn’t see him.

    “You ok?” Asked Nick “That was a big sigh”

    Macy smiled “Yeah I’m fine, I just miss him.” She lied right through her teeth.

    Nick nodded in agreement but he had a feeling that there was something wrong, but he shook it off. For now.

    A Coffee-Scented Mystery

    Nick frowned. He lifted his pen and scratched his head with it, then pressed it to his lip, leaving behind a thin black line. He frowned again.

    He was in a rut. The paper in his hand was blank- no cheesy love song, no cute pickup lines, void of inspiration. He sighed.

    This was what happened when he didn’t have a crush. Not to say that he needed a crush to write new music. It was just that Nick wasn’t feeling especially angsty or philosophical. Angst, love, and philosophy all guaranteed good music.

    It didn’t help that he was also a tad crabby. Without coffee, it was like the day hadn’t really started yet. Black coffee. Yum…

    But the nutritionist claimed it wasn’t good for him, so off went that habit. Or, at least, he was going to try.

    Only, he wasn’t doing so well. It had been sixteen hours (yes, he’d counted) since his last cup, and already Nick needed more. But no, he couldn’t give up so soon. He didn’t need coffee, or so he told himself. He was Nick Lucas, for goodness sake! Coffee? Psh.

    …Oh no. Now that he was thinking about it, now that the idea was in his mind, he wanted it even more. His taste buds screamed for it, his stomach grumbled, and he knew that only coffee could make them stop. Black coffee. Maybe just one cup–

    But no. He shouldn’t. He’d quit, after all. Coffee, just like sugar, drugs, and alcohol, was addictive. He was just an addict craving a fix. A bitter, hot, caffeinated fix. Oh gosh, he needed it.

    Maybe he could write a song about coffee…

    Wow, that was a stupid idea. He really needed some caffeine, his brain couldn’t function properly without it. His nutritionist hadn’t mentioned anything about diet soda, had she?

    Smirking to himself and feeling clever, Nick sipped the diet coke he’d gotten from his school’s soda machine. His head was starting to come back to him. Perhaps this no-coffee thing wouldn’t be so hard after all.

    As he settled into his first period class (math), Nick remembered that he needed to write a song. He’d been so distracted by his coffee needs that he’d completely forgotten. So, while his teacher rattled on about logarithms and that funny E symbol, Nick tried to think of lyrics, rhythms, and beats.

    And then, it happened. Ever so faint, but distinct to his well trained senses, he caught the scent. It came on a breath of wind and was gone almost instantly. But he’d smelt it, and now he needed it. Coffee.

    Where had it come from? He looked left and right frantically, but he saw no coffee cup, no one wiping their lips as if after a sip. Just his classmates, all equally bored. So where had it come from??

    He once again forgot about his song writing in the face of a coffee-scented mystery. The math lecture was lost to Nick as he spent the rest of the period trying to find the source of the elusive fragrance. He caught it only one other time during class, and then again after the bell had rung as everyone filed out the door.

    It drove him crazy. He attempted to convince himself that he’d imagined it, but to no avail. His senses didn’t lie, and he knew what he’d smelled.

    Coffee.

    He didn’t smell it in history, but it came back in English, and a few times in the hallways. Each time, he’d frantically searched, but each time, he’d found nothing. His brothers, however, had noticed, and evidently thought he’d gone insane.

    “Hey, Nick,” Joe said cautiously before lunch as Nick caught the scent again. “What’s up? Are you looking for something?”

    “Do you smell coffee?” Nick asked bluntly, not bothering to pause and explain. It was driving him crazy!

    “Uhm… No?” Joe answered. “Besides, even if I did you couldn’t have any, our nutritionist said

    TO THE PEOPLE SAYING THAT KINGS OF LEON JUST PLAY IN CLUBS AND ARE JEALOUS OF JONAS BROS. SHUT UP. KINGS OF LEON ARE FAR BIGGER & JUST PLAYED MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. THEY ARE ONE OF THE BIGGEST BANDS IN THE WORLD SO GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT
    ____________________

    Madison Square Garden?
    The Jonas Brothers have played there also …
    It’s not too much big of a deal when you’re comparing them to that arena.

    ———————–

    yeah actually, jonas brothers played THREE, SOLD OUT madison square garden shows.
    so dont try to make it seem like a big deal that kings of crap played one dinky show there that wasnt even sold out there.

    i know most JB fans were like, “Oooh Kings of Leon are awesome!!!” cause the boys told them to about their music. Now they’re taking KOL’s side. it’s retarded.

    yeha, there not big in america because they suck.

    we actually do know good music.
    i rarely hear anything from disney on the radio.
    jonas brothers: they played sos in 2007 and really they dont play their music now. i only heard paranoid for about a week before the stopped.
    they NEVER play hannah montana music. they only play miley occasionally, and its only the Climb.

    this makes the UK seem so rude. maybe they should actually sell out some big arenas and then criticize us.
    someones bitter they are only known in america BECAUSE the jonas brothers and “hannah montana” said they liked this band.

    I heard Paranoid on the radio yesterday and today…
    You fail.

    um i live in new york, and z100 the 2nd biggest radio station in america. i listen every day and i havent heard paranoid since may. even when i request it.
    so i agree with the first person.
    and you fail.

    I live in NY and I heard paranoid yesterday on z100 on my way home from Target.
    and I heard it this morning.
    im just saying.
    i fucking know what i heard. dont tell me they don’t play it when ive heard it with my own ears.

    they could have worded that differently. I love KOL but that was kind of rude. Not everyone in America likes just one type of music. I don’t look at the genre when I’m listening to a song. If the song is good…then it’s good. It doesn’t matter what the genre is, I’m open to all kinds of music. Music is music, a way to express yourself that’s what it’s supposed to be. So they really had no buisness saying that. And that person up there is right the jonas brothers love KOL and they just dissed jb. Which was uncalled for because they don’t know them personally and jb did nothing wrong, and KOL probably hasn’t even listened to a whole song by the jonas brothers, so he really had no right to say that. Anyways I”m done with my rant, just my opinion.

    lmao. Miley’s gonna be pissed when she sees this. She said she was a Kings of Leons fan and they’re criticizing Hannah Montana.

  • Mandy

    I hate kings of leon
    Kings Of Leon and all those dumb “rock bands” that insult JB do that for publicity, cause they’re nobody.
    JB are waaayyyyy more famous than them and they don’t actually need to insult anybody.

  • Katie

    OKayyy these dudes have way to much anger
    at the jonas brothers! THEY SHOULD JUST LET
    IT GO THAT THEY PPLAY SMALL CLUBS AND JB PLAYs
    BIG ARENAS.

    IF THEY HATE AAMERICA SO MUCH THEY SHOULD MOVE THEY
    WONT BE MISTED!

    this is kinda sad.
    honestly i think that
    all america listens to
    is r&b and rap.

    that’s what’s all over the
    billboard charts & itunes.

    plus jb and miley are pretty
    popular in the uk.

    kol have disappointed me.

    You guys are about the dumbest comparing a teen pop group to an alternative group. Have you ever noticed that the music industry caters to younger audiences who don’t know shit about music or the art of it? See this is why I dislike my generation sooo much because you guys don’t know shit about what good and artful music is. Who cares about who sold more and who did what more. That doesnt matter. What matters is who is going to have more longetivity and I say Kings of Leon is because they are not a boy band. Jonas Brothers is a boy band and everyone knows that boy bands last for a certain amount of time and then little girlies move on to the next big boy band, which will happen. That’s why JB always say they are afraid that they won’t be a huge boy band because they know its going to happen. KOL is absolutely right about the music industry here. We know nothing about creativity, while the rest of the world does. That’s why The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elton John, and the Spice Girls became global phenomenons while the only American acts that became global phenomenons was Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Britney Spears. American music scene sucks monkey balls and as a proud American, I’m ashamed of it. That’s why the only song that is a summer smash is Boom Boom Pow and I got a feeling. Then MJ died and people realized how much they missed the good music and its sad that it took someones death to realize it.

    I’m sorry I wrote this long ass paragraph, but you guys bashing KOL for speaking nothing but the truth shows me how ignorant and retarded this generation truly is.

    Finally! That is exactly what i thought, i just couldn’t be bothered to type it out!

    that’s kind of sad for JB since we know that they really like kings of leon.

    and KOL are basically saying that JB’s music isn’t good…

    —————

    It’s true so there is no denying it. Plus, KOL didn’t say they we’re bad. They just said it’s kiddy pop. Which is also true -_-

    Wtf?
    Who does this asshole think he is telling me I don’t know good music?
