When I found out, I felt a little upset at society. Especially when Stairway to Heaven has only a couple million views. As with a bunch of songs by The Beatles.

Thoughts?

Typical. Marketing is everything with those bands, not the music itself. They just have to rely on people not hearing anything better or more fitting for their tastes (which admittedly is pretty difficult for anyone who listens to music that isn't in the top 40).

Hmmm....

I wonder how many unique users make up that number, as opposed to just children continually rewatching the same video over and over.

Mindless hypocrites...one idiot likes the Jonas Brothers and they all have to follow. They don't pay attention to the music, they just like showing people that they're fans of the band.

Yeah I was wondering this too. I hate the Jonas Brothers really. The songs they make are horrendous to me. Plenty of better bands.

Probably because music like that represents the death of culture. Mass-marketed money making machines that really have no substantive cultural value whatsoever. Kind of like McDonalds and Michael Bay movies, only in teen band form.

Music like that has been around as long as music has. They grow out of it....heck....many people here admit to listening to LP growing up. To me they are as just as odious.

The ONLY reason I give a **** about how popular they are is the fact that people are listening to and supporting them rather than music artists much more deserving...

Think about it this way. What if youtube had been out since bands like the beatles were out. There will always be pop bands that people like for a short time (cept beatles, they were the best). Seriously tho I can't wait for JB to die out.

You'd be surprised how differently a preteen's mind changes in a few years. My biggest fear however....is that the preteens will still be stupid enough to listen to JB even after they grow up....well, maybe I'm being pessimistic, but I really don't want JB to be on top at all.

You post made me think about Welcome to the Machine by Pink Floyd, which is pretty much what the Jonas Borthers are, a money making machine, the record companies are bathing the cash they are pulling in from the band. They really don't care about the music, only the money.

Well Im pretty sure the general audience of the Jonas Brothers is far more connected (to the internet) than Zeps. I mean...I've never watched any Zeppelin videos on Youtube. I have the albums, why would I? Well I take that back I watched some videos of their Earls Court concerts. They don't have many actual videos either. The Jonas Brothers have a bunch, it's a huge part of their marketing.

Anyways...why were you looking up the hits on a JB video if you don't like them?

It sucks to be one of the 70 million people who wasted their time watching that, but they enjoy it so what can we do?

Personally, I cry. :cry:
