Jonas Bros Descend on Virgin

8/12/2008 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The streets and sidewalks of New York turned into a mad sea of screaming, crying, hysterical tweenage girls last night -- all for a little band called the Jonas Brothers.

Barricades were set up outside their hotel, and the scene was even crazier at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square. Here's what we're wondering ... why the Virgin thing, since kids are all about the download.

Say what you want about the Jo Bros, but I love the fact that they are a ROCK n ROLL band!!! They write, they play instruments...they are not one of the typical "boy bands" that have been saturating the music scene for the past ten years. Rock n Roll is dying, especially for the younger audience, and it's refreshing to see these guys wave the rock n roll flag high and proud! I say "Bring it, Jo Bros!" Show the kids what rock n roll is all about, because sadly, not many of them know. Not to mention the fact that ya just can't help digging some of their tunes...ROCK ON, BOYS!!!

These guys are still young and showing great potential as musicians. I'm sure if we would have heard any of the greatest bands at the age of 15 - they'd be similar. I don't believe these guys will just wash away. They are too talented. They were very lucky to get discovered at such an early age and ride the thrill of being a teenage heart throb. But they are hillarious actors as well as musicians. Their future is more than bright.

Have you seen these guys act? They're great! These guys are talented in every aspect. Ok - maybe not weather reporting as proved on GMA, however when it comes to music, producing, acting and just being adorable - these guys have it - 5 STARS!!!

I was an insane mother who took her 14 year old daughter to times square, waited 10 hours for the jonas brothers to buy the cd and have it signed, so we thought. Instead we almost got trampled by 20,000 people who swarmed the place in two seconds flat they were in and out of the store. She did cry, but didnt have enough. She waited in front of TRL and the hotel the next day. I did take her to 4 concerts so far, but now, I am offcially done. I hope they appreciate these girls!!!

I don't get what it is about these guys that the girls 'swoon' over! Only one of them is even remotely cute to look at -- plus, they all have such 'nasally' voices! Yuk! I agree...they'll be gone in a year or two, and then the next group of stupid boy-band types will come in behind them!

How can you pick one to be remotely cute? Nick is adorable - Joe is sexy - Kevin is the boy next door. I'd take any of them! Nick being compared to a young Stevie Wonder - and let's see...a 15 year old Stevie Wonder went on to be one of the biggest musical legands we have. These guys have loads of talent. Rolling Stone has them on their cover - the youngest stars ever - and gave their new album 4 out of 5 stars - impressive! Along with Entertainment Weekly - another 4 out of 5 stars. Almost every band out there is gone in a few years - and then come back - and then go...That's the way we've made American music. I say congratulations boys! Job well done!

Who cares if they are represented by Disney? Have we forgotten Brittney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Auguillera and MANY OTHERS got their start through Disney? Disney is just an avenue for young talented kids to break into the business when most agents won't listen to you until you are at least 18. The Jonas Brothers are not a "made" band like Spice Girls or Making the Band or Menudo - remember Milli Vanilli? Jonas Brothers have true talent and were promoting THEMSELVES and had a fan base of almost 100,000 before Disney even approached them. You talk about impressive! It's amazing how when someone hears the name Disney - they automatically think it's bogus. These kids have a whole future ahead of them. And they will be able to do whatever they want to do. #3, 4, 7, 9, 10 and 11 - you sound like you are a little...actually alot jealous....I'm guessing you'd love to be walking in the JoBros shoes instead of standing in your own putting down people that haven't done a thing to you.

The Jonai released their new album, A Little Bit Longer, this week, and it is gonna debut bigger than Miley Cyrus did. And the numbers prove it.

Miley was able to top the album charts selling 371,000 copies of her album, Breakout, for its first week release.

As for the Jonas Bros, they're poised to top next week's album charts with a total that currently looks to be in the 725,000 area!!!!!

That's double what Miley did!

The JBs are also the first group ever in history to sell more than 100,000 digital downloads for three consecutive singles with Burning Up (183k), Play My Music (109k) and Pushin' Me Away (116k).

Massive!
