Hanson VS Kings Of Leon

Yeah, this is going to be the start of something bad. Right, Ryan Murphy?

It doesn't seem like there are too many people in this business you have a soft spot for the Kings of Leon. There fans are loyal, for sure, but every time we turn around, we feel like there is someone with some major beef with them. This morning, it's Hanson.

In a new interview, the brothers laid in thick on the band for canceling their tour to deal with some issues, including Caleb Followill's "exhaustion." Issac, the eldest Hanson, explained:

"I have a hard time with musicians who act like pr*cks because it just makes me mad. If you're actually making a living doing it [making music], pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don't love it and people will eventually get p*ssed off. I'm going to call somebody out on it - the Kings of Leon are running some risks. They're irritating people and you can't do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans' willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out. Everybody has their demons, everyone has their challenges. I'm a bit of a hothead in certain circumstances, but you've got to temper it because your fans are there and they've paid good money to see a show, and you gotta bring it."

That last bit was definitely for you, Caleb. Remember that time in Dallas you stormed off the stage and the show was canned?

Isaac makes some very important points, but still, there might be some serious stuff going on with Caleb and if he needs help with that, he needs to put himself before the fans, the band and the music so he can get better. He can be a bit selfish if it means he'll truly be bettering himself.

    You know, it’s easy to dish it out on people when they’re down. So I have no respect for people like Hanson or any blogger or journalist who wants to sit behind their little computer or wherever else and throw darts at people when they’re going through it. They did the same thing to Amy Winehouse and they just look like a bunch of cowards. If a band cancels an entire tour, it’s because of something major. Common sense. A decision like that isn’t made lightly. There is a lot at stake and the band and promoters lose a ton of money. Caleb is an alcoholic, probably has some substance abuse problems too and needs help. What part of that are people not getting? Will they be satisfied if he od’s somewhere? The man is not in any condition to tour. Period. It’s not about appeasing people at this point. It’s about taking care of what’s important which is his health and well-being. Yes they cancelled in Dallas (and after a pigeon problem too-I’d like to see you stand there for 2 plus hours and get crapped on and then come back and talk about it)- The Kings have toured non-stop for something like 9, 10 years. Probably a little burnt out as a result. They have more than paid their dues and that’s why they have such loyal fans. As for Hanson, they are and will always be known for the Mmmbop song. The. End.

    The on ly thing in the world you irritates me is The Hanson's sound.

    Don't talk that way boys, the jealousy is so palpable, this is so not christian.

    By the way Mario, they are probably homophobic, but you hate so much KINGS OF LEON that you're ready to relay anything full of shit about them.

    THEY ARE ONE OF THE GREATEST BAND EVER ! Get over it hypocrite mysoginist !

    WOw Isaac tell us how you really feel.you could have just mmmboppped at us.



  6. 6

    He probably didn't get the memo that he didn't just walk out of a show but had to cancel over a month's worth of them. Obviously there's something more serious going on.

    They're absolutely right.
    I'm willing to be supportive of anyone who is going through some troubles, or going through a hard time, but Kings of Leon are pricks, and they've always BEEN pricks to everyone around them. They're talented, but they have hugely disproportionate egos and just think they can act however they want or treat people however they want and that people will stick around forever. As far as I'm concerned, there's much better bands out there to spend my attention and money on.

    hanson sucks

    Mario- If you want to be thought of as a respected journalist with credibility, LEARN PROPER GRAMMER!! Or fire the idiots who don't know proper English rules.

    Another good example…Oasis. Prats!

    For those of you bashing Hanson, know that they tour consistently and still sell out shows. And this is because they respect their fans. They know everything could be gone in a minute and they've always said that.

    KOL always seem to be complaining about something. They really do need to get their stuff together.

    Lawd with the try-hard "MMMBop"/"Hanson sucks" comments.

    And another thing…Perez, how many times have you criticized other musicians for allowing their possible addictions/erratic behavior that ruined gigs their fans paid good money for?!?! Remember your CONSTANT badgering of Amy Winehouse?? You had some really tacky and uncouth comments about her while she went through her own thing.
    Of course it is priority #1 for people to take care of themselves first. But as Jarod Followill said more than once - this has been a problem for a LONG time and whatever anyone else says is bullshit. It was his brother's CHOICE to continue to tour without seeking treatment. You are not responsible for your addiction but you sure as hell are for your recovery.
    Okay, I'm done…

    Re: jessaloo – Everything you said, Hanson has also been doing this since 1995 and when they got dropped by their label, did they allow their egos to get in the way? No, they have continued on their own for nearly 11 years now and still maintain vehement support from VH1 and MTV for their songs and originality of their videos - which they finance themselves and create themselves. No million dollar budgets there.
    Not to mention - as both KOL and Hanson grew up in Oklahoma (before KOL moved to Nashville for music), they are siblings in bands that have their own respective success…oh and yeah, Jarod CLERLY displayed his anger and irritation at the bullshit of the whole situation.

    anyone who wants to bring up an "mmmbop" bash is honestly a joke. think back to what you were up to 17 years ago and then just think if its at all relevant to what you're doing today. it's honestly funny that you think thats even a justifiable insult.

    and really, i could care less about what isaac has to say about kings of leon anyway.
    but, i am quite fond of hanson and their musical talent.

    I don't get this band…. they have had ONE hit…. ONE!!!

    That's it…. O N E.

    Re: Publius – It's GRAMMAR.

    Re: Low – One? uhm.. excuse me but they never stopped making music its what they love. after mmmbop they did where's the love. weird. thinking of you. i will come to you. they had many top songs just off that one album. and they have many albums after. they just released another album last year and i got to see them perform which was amazing because they include all their fans in everything that they do. I think its safe to say they have been in this business way longer than kings of leon have. and if they're not appreciative of it then they should move aside for "REAL" artist who care more about drinking and making money. i dont even think i've heard a top song from kings of leon except when they did one song with demi lovato thats how i heard of them. if they got problems then before they agree to anything like a huge tour.. maybe they should work on themselves first.

    The only thing serious about Caleb is that he's seriously an alcoholic tool.



  20. 20

    Hanson is still around and they fill concert venues. Can The Jonas Brothers do that? In other words, Hanson kinda knows what the fuck they are talking about. Kings Of Leon should listen…



  21. 21

    I agree. I think IsAAc (Two A's not two s's Perez) is trying to say while you are on top rightnow and get to play in the big venues and all the luxuries of being famous…respect your fans because it won't last forever and one day your band will be a has been and you can only hope you still have diehard fans still willing to buy your music.



  22. 22

    No one knows shit about what's going w Caleb. Clearly, the guy has issues. Get off his nuts. It was a bitchy move for Isaac to call them out like that…Way to kick a guy when he's down, dumbass.

    You said it! I noticed that and cringed. It's just embarrassing.
