'Say what now?!'
It's a dark day, America. The Jonas Brothers were once the apple of our country's eye, the slickest, coolest boys around. Parents loved them, girls adored them, boys wanted to be them. They had it all. And in a flash it was gone. That's right, friends, the day some feared would come has arrived: The Jonas Brothers are dorks.
At least that's the case according to a recent post on The Daily Beast. Citing internal Disney market research, the story suggests that other pop-culture phenomenons, such as Justin Bieber and Twilight's hunky werewolf star, Taylor Lautner, have replaced the Jonas Brothers in the hearts of teen America -- specifically female teen America.
One survey participant went so far as to say that she wouldn't be caught wearing Jonas Brothers gear. “If you went to school with a JB backpack, other people might think you're dorky.” The horror!
What do you guys think? Are the Jonas Brothers still cool? Or, like New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys and countless other teen heartthrobs before them, are they considered kinda corny now? Vote in our poll and let us know in the comments, then reminisce with us as we watch the Jonas Brothers at the peak of their coolness in their video for "Burnin' Up," below.
