Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this pop punk single is more of the same from this uber popular tween band and is fine for kids of all ages. The theme is about trying to come to terms of why someone is dissing someone but stays completely family-friendly.

What's the story?

\"PUSHIN' ME AWAY\" is the second single from the Jonas Brothers' (or JoBros as they're often referred to) upcoming album. Parts of the song stray out of the pop sound and dip into light punk territory, but for the most part, it's very bubblegum friendly.

Is it any good?


This single starts off with a hand-clappin', drum-stick-bangin' edgier rhythm that unfortunately doesn't carry throughout the rest of the song. Their vocals seem stretched a bit too thin on the chorus, but it's nice to see them slightly mature lyrically and become less predictable and a bit more obscure in what they have to say. Similar to their other stuff, you've got to give the Jonas Brothers credit for their ability to appeal to both boys and girls and to cross into the teen range, too.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the appeal of the Jonas Brothers. Why are they so popular? Do you think they live up to the hype? Why or why not? Do you think they would have made it big without the help of Disney?

I love the JBs, but I have to say I was a little disappointed with this song. The background music is great, but the lyrics seem kind of repetative. Still worth listening to, for sure.
