    I never consider them a boyband. They are very different from a boyband. They are a unique band, no one like them.

    Nothing’s more pathetic than a boyband that’s trying to run away from the fact that they’re a boyband.

    Never considered them to be a boyband. They play instruments and write all their own music. Fanbase doesn’t make them something they are not.

    Absolutely NOT a boyband. I’ve seen them in person, they are a band in all senses of the word. Nick is actually an excellent guitarist and in person Nick & Joe have much better voices than what was captured in the studio. Great voices in fact. Kevin does his job, too, as does the rest of the guys (& girls) in the band. When I saw them sing “Drive My Car” by the Beatles, the Beatles might as well have been there. (and I love the Beatles, so I don’t say that lightly)

    They’re just a band of “boys” (men) , not a BOYBAND.. They play their instruments, make their own music, write their song, and has their own music style. THEY’RE NOT A BOYBAND, THEY’RE BIGGER THAN THAT.

    Boybands typically can’t play a single instrument and do dance routines on stage (BSB’s and *NSYNC). I’ve never seen the Jonas’s do that. They play instruments..sooo idk that’s just what I think..

    If they want to see boybands see The Wanted or One Direction they took over where the BSB’s,98 Degrees,and *NSYNC left off just saying.

    They’re not a boyband, they’re a band. Mind you a band of brothers like Hanson…

    Justinsuglyglasses is bitter lol!

    Not bitter. I think OceanUp is bitter with all the sarcastic posts about the Jonas Brothers lol. I’m just calling out the obvious. Did the same for Justin and Selena. I am a bit stunned about the comparison to Hanson. If people knew the career history of Hanson, they’d never make that comparison. Again, google Hanson & Jeff Fenster.

    Boy band or should i say washed up boy band.

    No, the Jonas Bros are not a boyband. And Britney Spears does not lip sync, Rihanna does not use sex to sell her music and Selena Gomez does not exploit Jelena for publicity.

    Are you freakin’ kidding me Jonas Bros?????? As I said in another post, you can’t change history. Between 2007-2010, the Jonas Brothers were the quintessential boyband. They sang bubblegum pop. They had Disney shows and Disney movies. They “dated” fellow teen celebrities. They toured with the queen of Disney in Miley Cyrus. They talked about every detail of their love life in teen mags. They promised to remain “pure” until marriage. They merchandised the hell out of their name from lunch boxes, to pillow covers to pens to everything in between. All hallmarks of boybands from NKOTB to n’Sync.

    I actually think it is unfair to compare the Jonas Brothers To Hanson. The Jonas Brothers became what Hanson refused to become after mmmbop. Hanson gave up the prospect of immediate fame and fortune in return for their musical integrity. Just read about Hanson and Jeff Fenster to find out more. The Jonas Brothers sold out for immediate fame and fortune, i.e. see Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2, see Jonas Brother pajamas and comforters.

    After having shamelessly sold out, the Jonas Brothers now want to have what Hanson has but without having made that sacrifice. I’m offended. Hanson should be offended. Every young artist who has had the courage to sacrifice immediate fortune in order to maintain their musical integrity and who have refused to exploit their personal life for cheap publicity should be offended.

    This is exactly why I respect David Archuleta so much. He is by no means as successful as the Jonas Brothers but in 2009, on his high profile tour with Demi (Sonny With a Chance) Lovato, he did not allow himself to be controlled by Disney and treated as a product to be merchandised on lunch boxes and set up in a showmance with Demi or Selena. David Archuleta could go the Hanson route when he gets back in 2014 in a way the Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber and One Direction will NEVER be able to.

    David Archuleta deserves our support way more than the Jonas Brothers. Agree OceanUp?

    OF COURSE they are a boy band.

    They are male, and are a band!

    Uuh, they’re not a boyband. Just because they are boys and they’re in band doesn’t mean they are a boyband. It’s like saying Hot Chelle Rae are a boyband or The Beatles were a boyband (I’m not comparing the Jobros with them). NKOTB and the Backstreet boys are boybands.

    Nick speak for your self! I happen to like the way they were dancing on stage!

  • yesaella

    theyre not a boyband.
    they are a band. kevy plays guitar as does nick who also plays drums whilst they sing.
    boybands dont do that.
    although they are eligible to be dissed/treated like a boyband since theyve been promo’d their whole life like one.

    Due to their fans I consider them more of a boyband than a band.
