The Jonas brothers took inspiration from a 70's music Icon in the titling of their new album "Stinkfoot", set for release this summer 2009. In an attempt to follow in Frank Zappa's footsteps, or to at least give the appearances of maturity in the development of their own musical style, the brothers Jonas are shifting lyrics away from current trends into something more provocative.
Jonas Brothers promoter Ken Iduyu says, "It's a bold approach to walk away from their current powerful lyrical style towards something a little more Zappa-esque, but the boys can surely pull it off."
With #1 hits still on the charts like "Ooh Baby", "Baby my Baby", "Baby Love", and "Love me Baby", some critics fear the Jonas gang will hit the skids with proposed titles like, "Electric Toothbrush", "Homage in Omaha", and "Vibrate Me Pink".
"We're not completely sure the new songs will appeal to the 9 to 13 year old market" says Iduyu, "but we're targeting a much, much older audience with these complex lyrics, like the 12 to 15 year olds."
Zappa fans now in their 50's are out in full protest in what they are calling a "clear rip off" of the Zappa trademark style. One dedicated Zappa fan, Ida Tawklong stood next to her pygmy pony and offered reporters some dental floss. "Zappa is GOD! Nobody has the right to copy his style." Tawklong's nostrils flared incessantly during her quote.
Iduyu provided one more tidbit to reporters. If the album proves to be the success the brothers think it will be, they plan to create a special Christmas album titled "Don't Eat the Yellow Snowman."
