Looking at The Beatles as their source of inspiration, Jonas Brothers do not want to compare themselves to the legend.

When asked how it feels to be compared to legendary The Beatles, hot teen band Jonas Brothers say that they are honored but refuse to compare themselves to the legend. "It is an honor but we definitely do not compare ourselves to the Beatles. They are our idols," they wrote on their MySpace page.

Elaborating their statement, the trio continue explaining that John Lennon and friends truly become their inspiration. "We look to them as a source of inspiration but we don't think anyone will have the impact that the Beatles have had on music," they added.

Most recently, the Jonas boys are seen in San Pedro, California filming their "Lovebug" music video with beautiful actress Camilla Belle who reportedly makes a cameo appearance in the video. In related news, the band are also confirmed to hold a Los Angeles' special concert in addition to all the shows that they've been doing. The show will be held on November 14 to celebrate the launch of American Eagle Outfitter's new kids line, 77Kids.

The person who came up with this comparision was (A on crack)(B needed a brain operation)or (C never heard proper music in their pathetic lives, The Jonas Faggots will never be the Beatles and should not be compared to anyone before 2005 and to sum this whole thing up all 3 of the Jonas Faggots don't have the talent of John Lenon'pinky fingernail.

"John Lennon and friends"? What you can't spell out Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr? They are just as imporant to the group as John was.

So I googled this topic, because yesterday my brothers girlfriend was over. And they were in my brothers/my(we share :() room, I've covered my half of the room in beatles related stuff. Such as posters, CD covers etc... My brothers girlfriend felt the need to express her disgust for The Beatles and for The Jonas Brothers, then futher more stated they were very much alike. I laughed at this, because it was the most ridiculous thing, I've ever heard in my entire life. The Beatles have been famous for many, many years.. and I'll just say I'm generally young.. The Beatles were not my.. "era". But I wish more than anything they were, and that I could of been to one of their concerts. But let me tell you, The Beatles WILL be around.. in the hearts of people.. of all ages.. forever. Some people come into your life, and leave quickly. Some people come into your life, and leave permanent footprints and your never the same. The Beatles touched the lives of many people, and will always continue to do so. Whether it be through the recent Rockband game, or Across The Universe. I know, my generation can and do love The Beatles. They are the greatest band to ever exist, and they will continue to be the greatest band EVER. Because really? the jonas brothers? can they even begin to touch the impact on the world, The Beatles had. They can't, not even with a 20 foot pole. So really, there should be no comparison needed. Because, The Beatles are five-hundred-million times more than the Jonas brothers ever will be.

The jonas brothers are simply a fad, that will past.. like most new music. The Beatles are classic, they are indeed legends. I find it insulting that they are being compared to such a cliche, degrading, deafening band such as the jonas brothers. Also, you have to understand the jonas brothers, are indeed brothers. The Beatles were not related, naturally siblings would have a better connection both musically and generally. The fact, that The Beatles worked so amazingly together and everyone THOUGHT they were b

Okay hello people! They said it themselves that they cannot compete with the Beatles but that the Beatles inspired them like they inspired so many of you apparently. Get off their backs they can't help how people judge them! Geez they are just young men trying to live their dream. AND they are great role models to todays youth. Why are you so negative about them! If you don't like them turn off the radio. Love in Jesus, Carrie

During the week of 4 April 1964, The Beatles held ten positions on Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, including the top five positions. Neither feat has been matched by any other artist to date. Try that JB if you can.

To JB, you come close to the Rolling Stones, then maybe you can come close to The Beatles.

im angered to see that people could compare these bunch of sorry no talent fucking faggots to the beatles. they will never compare to the bealtes. speaking as a musician.. i could write better music then them in 2 minutes

@jonasss the jonas brothers are in no way better than the Beatles. the Beatles have more than a couple of good songs (in fact they have tons of great songs). the Beatles have inspired tons of musical artists (who have the jonas brothers inspired? or will ever inspire) the jonas brothers are latest obsession of young girls which will eventually wear off and as to the whole good role model thing (there are alot of good people in the world who aren't as recognized, but the jonas brothers just use this to their advantage to not only gain the attention of their current fans, but the attention of the parents of these fans as well) @whoever compared the jonas brothers to the Beatles. -no one will ever quite compare to the Beatles period.

I know the comments about how if you hate something keep it to yourself or whatever but really i just plane hate Jonas brothers, it pisses me off that they can call themselves a band. No they can't compare to beatles because the beatles were actully a band, jonas brothers are just a means to target a market of young girls. And they try to call themselves rockstarts...

i am a huge beatlemaniac but i 'll tell you something right now the jonas brothers can suck my big furry balls the beatles rule i hope these fools can realize they only appeal to young prepubesent girls unlike the beatles the beatles have so many good songs

the beatles are musical gods and these clowns are nothing more then some 5 minute fad the beatles will go down in history and these imatators will be forgotten tommorow
posted by Bob on Feb 26, 2009
I have had enough of these clowns posing as the jonas brothers...they claim they refuse comparisons between themselves and the beatles, yet everytime I see these fools they are mimicking some epic beatle imagery. The theater I go to sports a huge cardboard cutout of the jonas brothers stepping off a plane (think beatles JFK arrival)...the only difference is the beatles were greeted by a giant crowd of fans and the beatles had somewhere to be...also just now I saw a video (so cleverly choreographed) of the JB being chased by screaming girls (i wont say fans because I am sure a smart number of them did it for the money)....but come on...stop with the pathetic attempts to be this generations beatles...it actually somehow makes the beatles seem cheap, so if you respect them as much as you guys say, just stop....

all you human out there. why don't you stop bothering them? why waste you time writing comments about this new band called the jonas brother?? Their not doing anything on you. As a fan of the beatles you should understand that their only doing this because of their fans and supporters. Of all people you should be the ones who understand them because you are all in both way of expressing your admirations, in short you're both in the same situation. make sense?? stop this madness.

I personally hate the jonas brothers, but at least they have enough musical sense to recognise the fact that the Beatles ARE legends, and that they will NEVER be!

why are you people even discusing this? the beatles are the best band in the world, and always will be! The Joe Bro's.....i've got ten bucks saying they won't last 1 more year. 2, if the world is as brain dead as i think it is. i don't care if your 7 or 70, the joe bro's can't be compared to the crap that comes from the beatles behinds. even then.....

I believe that the The Beatles and the jonas bros. have their own styles and talents. I am a bigger Beatles fan and i don't listen too much modern music because i prefer and LOVE the oldies. I think it's very thoughtful of them not wanting to be comared to The Beatles.

The Jonas brothers all combined don't have the talent of John Lennon's pinky.

Talent. The JB are doing it wrong.
posted by micmichael95 on Oct 09, 2008
all of you think that this is a big deal but when ever a new popular boy band comes in they always compare them to the legendary true kings of rock n roll but no one ever even touches a fraction of them and jonassss you are an idiot a couple good songs? you know nothing about the most popular/worlds greatest band/musicians and there is never gonna be another beatles and drugs inspired a lot of their classic songs and people didn't know much about drugs in fact their first trip was slipped into their tea or coffee and they never sit around and sleep until its time and jonas well be dead in well ill give them 2 years
posted by The Adam on Oct 09, 2008
Ok I don't see why the Jonas brothers are under so much crap for this. They did not compare themselves to the Beatles, someone else did. I'm not a fan for the Jonas Brothers, but they can't be nothing if they are where they are today. BeethovenPoems if you really wish they were dead, then do it or just stop wishing it. THE END

jonasss you can not say just a couple good songs when they have made many songs and most have been great hits. All because you think the Jonas Brothers are amazing, when they are not, doesn't give you the right to put down one of the greatest bands of all time.
posted by Pinky on Oct 09, 2008
The Jonas Brothers can never compare to the Beatles. The Beatles have done so much for music and the Jonus brothers are just popular to young girls.
posted by jonasss on Oct 06, 2008
the only reason I think that they aren't alike is because the Jonas brothers are better. They are better role models, and they don't do drugs or sleep around, etc. The Beatles have a couple of good songs, but the Jonas brothers are totally better. The End.

Obviously the boys realize that they can't be compared with the GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME!! Nobody should be compared to The Beatles and their awesomeness. Still, the Jo' Bros are not bad. I love them; I'm a big fan! They are good performers and musicians. Not to mention great role models. Love that they showed modesty and humility; that's so hard to find these days...

Please die, Jonas Brothers. You're not the Beatles, and shouldn't even be wiping their asses. Signed, a angry teen who hates you alot.

NEVER again do i want to see the word Beatles and the Jonas Brothers in the same sentence. Even K J and N themselves admit they don't hold a candle! The Beatles revolutonized music, had raw talent, wrote UNIQUE songs, and appealed to all audiences. The JoBros, while they may insite beatlemania like obsessions among young teen girls, don't have a fraction of the actual talent or impact upon the world to measure up to the Fabs

honestly, whoever started the little thing about comparing the beatles to the jonas brothers might as well start comparing gucci and walmart.. they are nothing a like. the beatles were raw original talent and the jonas brothers are a manufactured pop group that writes songs only to be radio hits. not to mention they indorse about 10 products.. the beatles only needed to indorse there music :)

not to agree or anything with the comparison but the jonas brothers def. right their own music
posted by jesperdenmark on Sep 22, 2008
who dares to compare jonas brothers to the beatles. the beatles was not a boyband, they wrote their own material, and nobody will EVER stop talking about them. Jonas Brothers are three "pretty boys", marketed to the extremes by DISNEY, and nobody will say 40 years after their breakup: "We are so inspired by The Jonas Brothers." They are nothing

What other band in history has the double talents of a Lennon/Mccartney ?? Most bands dont even have the talent of ringo..Two of the greatest songwriters the most talented bass player in the world .. and then to add george and ringo into the mix.
