Joe Jonas Live On Letterman: Top 10 Current Bands With Brothers

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joe Jonas[/lastfm] is set to rock New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater Monday, August 22nd at 9 PM ET/ 6 PM PT, streamed live right here as the latest installment of Live on Letterman.

Even though a very dashing 22-year-old Joe Jonas is working on what is bound to become a successful solo career, he obviously received most of his notoriety by being in a band with his brothers Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas.

We started wondering whether there are any other current, not broken up  (see: [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Oasis[/lastfm]) bands that the Jonas Brothers could compare to, so we made this list of our Top 10 Current Bands With Brothers.

10.[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cage The Elephant[/lastfm]

Punkish, energetic Americana rock band from Kentucky, Cage The Elephant, are renowned for their dynamic stage performances–especially from lead singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Matthew Schultz[/lastfm]. At Coachella this year, he was rocking a red sundress while 500 people deep in a mosh pit.

Schultz’ brother and bandmate, rhythm guitarist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Brad Schultz[/lastfm], is less adventurous but there is definitely a lot of talent between these two siblings.

9. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]30 Seconds To Mars[/lastfm]

30 Seconds To Mars vocalist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jared Leto[/lastfm] is famous for a plethora of reasons–most notably his acting career and his fanatical, ummm, fans. His brother[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Shannon Leto[/lastfm] has also done some acting, but he’s best known as the super-talented drummer (and Jared’s bandmate) in 30 Seconds T0 Mars.

8. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Radiohead[/lastfm]

As the very mysterious brothers in iconic Britpop band Radiohead, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Colin Greenwood[/lastfm] (bassist) and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jonny Greenwood[/lastfm] (mulch-instrumentalist) might not have as much popular notoriety as bandmate and Radiohead lead singer, Thom Yorke, but their years of talent and their massive discography makes it all worth it.

7. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Arcade Fire[/lastfm]

When Arcade Fire won the 2011 Grammy for Album of the Year, not many outside of the indie-rock music scene actually knew who they were. Two of the members of the band–[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Win Butler[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Will Butler[/lastfm]–are brothers.

Win Butler is also married to Arcade Fire singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Regine Chassagne[/lastfm]. Awww, what a happy little Canadian family.

6.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Good Charlotte[/lastfm]

Pretty much everyone knows who Good Charlotte is–even if you don’t want to. A mainstream punk band from Maryland, Good Charlotte has two very famous brothers as lead singer and guitarist for the band–[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joel Madden[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Benji Madden[/lastfm].

Emo alternative rock band from New Jersey, My Chemical Romance is currently one of the biggest rock bands on the radio right now.

Considered to be one of the new bands that will become “classic rock” twenty years from now, Kings of Leon are one of the most infamous bands of rock brothers–besides[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Oasis[/lastfm], of course.

While there are allegedly dissent amongst the Brothers Followill and their Cousin Followill, there is no doubt that it’s just a little sibling rivalry.

2.[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Hanson[/lastfm]

Simultaneously mocked and applauded for their teeny-bopper hit, “MMMBop”, the boys of Hanson are all grown-up and actually have a pretty devoted following more than a decade after their song hit the airwaves.

And guess what, the oldest brother–already thirty. We know.

1. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jonas Brothers[/lastfm]

The boys of the hour, the Jonas Brothers are all grown up ( Kevin is even married!), but they are still one of the most popular boy bands to come out of the Disney musical empire.

And for good reason: They are actually really talented.
