Juicy Jonas Brothers Secrets We Are Burnin’ Up Over

The Jonas Brothers captured the hearts of screaming tweens all over the world with their good looks and catchy pop-rock tunes. Kevin, Joe, and Nick started the band when they were just 17, 15, and 12, respectively, and shot to stardom when Disney aired their music video for “Year 3000.” After four successful albums, the Camp Rock movies, and their own Disney Channel series Jonas, they devastated fans by breaking up in 2013. Six years later they reunited, but everything leading up to “Sucker,” might be what the Jonas Brothers want you to forget.

They may be known as the Jonas Brothers but that wasn’t always going to be the case. The band originally called themselves J3 but changed it at the last minute before their very first concert.

"[We] hated the name. It felt like something a boy band would be called. I remember turning to my brothers before that show and saying, ‘Do you want our name to be J3 for the rest of our lives?’ When we got onstage, I was the one to announce to the crowd, ‘Hey we’re the Jonas Brothers.’ Nice and simple," Joe told Vulture.
