Their music is primarily targeted towards the "just hit puberty" teens. The lyrics themselves are boring rehashed lines that could easily be seen as coming from other crappy similar bands (such as fall out boy).
Lets examine some of their lyrics.
"I'll take you home if you don't leave me at the front door.
Your body's cold, but girl we're getting so warm..."
So here we have it, this is how you apparently write a song/
You start with a lame lyric that doesn't really make sense but is vague enough to mean anything. Of course, every other lyric in the song has to refer back to sex, which is what this band primarily seems to use in order to gain teenager attention.
Here is another example of this same old formula (found within the same song).
After Chorus, second verse:
"Your lips tremble but your eyes are in a straight stare
your on the bed but your clothes are laying right there"
We start again with a vague opening statement, because again their audience is mostly idiots and cannot comprehend anything deep. The second line is of course about sex, in order to maintain the three second attention span of their audience.
Look up some more of their songs, they will follow the same pattern. Vague lyric, lyric about sex, vague lyric, lyric about sex.
Of course the band will sell plenty of CD's thanks to the goons at much music and MTV. The band members will end up believing they have talent because a bunch of 13 year old girls will be screaming whenever they see them, and unfortunately they will sell enough records to continue making music.
To make a more general summary - the band members can barely play their instruments, the melodies are boring and tedious, the lyrics are poor, repetitive and lack anything original.
The band itself only got a record deal due to the connections they have to the Hannah Montana show. These kids could never make it big if they had to start fresh - as they have no talent.
This band is essentially, in one single example, everything that is wrong with music today.
"Who the hell are you? Get the fuck out of my office!"
Now all I fucking hear all day long is their hit song; "Shake It" playing on MTV, or the radio until my fucking ears bleed.
I actually enjoyed their music until they made shit songs with absolutely no meaning, but a catchy beat and lyrics that any generic moron could sing along to.
Why is it that every good fucking band has to go through the same goddamn bullshit; make a few good songs, get realized, than make a goddamn generic ass song that becomes incredibly popular over night, than said song gets over-played FAST, than you never hear from the fuckers again?
I'm not trying to diss the band, and I'm not technically dissing any certain type/age of people, but seriously, am I the ONLY one that has a problem with this?
Me: Go to fucking hell, cuntrag.
i think they suck
they couldnt write a good song to save their lives,
but they are catchy.
also, too repetitive.
"yeah and i will never ever get their song out of my head, ever"
Person 2: Yeah it's rubbish
Person 1: Oh i kinda like it...
Person 2: YOU DESERVE TO BURN AND DIE
Regardless, this band is great, definitely danceable, and they put on great live shows.
And they won't know
I know you're dying
To take off your clothes
Just trust in me
I'll never run away
You kiss my lips
And you taste like pain
And while I'm pushing it, I'm moving
Somehow you manage to say..."
