Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the latest single from the too-cute trio is more of the same upbeat, pop-rock that made them popular. It's fine for kids, and just talks about the end of a relationship and, ultimately, breaking up.

What's the story?

\"TONIGHT\" is the third single from the Jonas Brothers to be released from the upcoming album A Little Bit Longer, due out August 12. It's bubble-gum punk rock about the end of a relationship.

Is it any good?


Tonight is more of the same peppy, racing rock that the Jonas Brothers are loved for. It's upbeat with a sweet-punk style guitar and thumping drum and bass beats. There's a little synth action here and there and vocals that take refreshing turns, but there's nothing new about the overall sound. Still, it seems the Jonas Brothers can do no wrong, and their latest single "Tonight" is sure to be another hit for the brothers brunette.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the ever-growing popularity of the family band of brothers Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas. Why do you think they are so popular? Do you think they have the talent to warrant such success? Does the fact that they are brothers make them more appealing? Why?
