Jonas Brothers


My three year old daughter was just singing a song I had never heard before, so I asked her what it was.  She told me it was the Jonas Brothers and she loved the Jonas Brothers.  James chimed in that the Jonas Brothers stunk.  I was left confused.

I have never heard of the Jonas Brothers and I can't believe I'm clueless about my daughter's favourite band.  Luckily for me, Wikipedia is here to rescue me, and I just learnt a great deal about the Jonas Brothers.

The Jonas Brothers is an American pop-rock band from Wyckoff, New Jersey made up of three brothers, Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas. All three brothers attended Eastern Christian High School in North Haledon, New Jersey. They have released two albums - It's About Time in 2006, and Jonas Brothers in 2007, and will release A Little Bit Longer in 2008.

What the heck did parents do before the Internet?  Was there a top secret parents network they'd call to find out about the latest fads?  The Jonas Brothers is a typical non-threatening boy band that three year olds would love, so I'm not concerned, but without the web I'd still be clueless as to what a Jonas Brother is all about.

And thanks to YouTube, I can quickly hear their wares for myself.  They're awful!  Listen for yourself.

I'm sure she'll outgrow this crud soon enough, and in the meantime, I'll keep forcing The White Stripes and Neil Young down her throat.  That always works!
