The Naked Brothers Band is a semi-real time Nickelodeon sitcom (with its movie title being "The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie" even though this is where The Naked Brothers Band started).

Plot

The show follows brothers Nat and Alex Wolff as they rehearse, perform and live their extraordinary teen lives. Their dad is part of the show, too, and he helps guide them as they make decisions about their careers. Acting, singing and dancing may be their job, but these brothers still have lessons to learn about friendship, family and fame.

Why It Makes Us Be Naked

  1. There are many, MANY inappropriate jokes in a kids show.
  2. It's basically a terrible mixture of drugs, underage sex, and sexism.
  3. The soundtrack is bad, the theme song for example (though it sounds decent) sounds like it belongs in a girl-themed show.
  4. It's a rip-off of The Jonas Brothers with a very similar concept.
  5. Its genderism is uncountable.
  6. Probable incest references between Nat and Alex.
  7. The characters (including the band themselves) are very stereotypical, mean-spirited and unlikable (mostly Alex) in several episodes.
  8. It disrupts the main siblings' schooling.
  9. Rips off The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Drake and Josh and Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi.
  10. It is one of Nickelodeon's terrible shows in the 2000s, along with another show that premiered (5 and a half months before this one).
  11. The Naked Brothers have a really inappropriate band name, which sounds like a pornographic band, especially in a kids show.
    • In fact, the name alone is horrible. It was actually inspired by an incident from when the brothers were kids. They were taking a bath together and decided to call themselves "the naked brothers band". Although Nat revised the band's title to The Silver Boulders in preschool, his mother Polly revived it as she felt it would be more suitable for the show.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some actors/actresses appeared in some episodes most notably Victoria Justice, Leon Thomas, Dave Attell, Miranda Cosgrove, Whoopi Goldberg, Natasha Bedingfield, David Desrosiers, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Simon Kirke.
  2. As mentioned above, the theme song is decent.

Reception

Despite the decent ratings from critics, the show received a LOT of heavy backlash from audiences, viewers and even on Common Sense Media alike. The rage of the show was made into rants on YouTube starting from around April 2007 and decreased around 2010. It holds a score of 3.4/10 IMDb, and 3/5 on Common Sense Media, and it's considered to be one of the worst shows on to air on Nickelodeon. Perhaps, even worse.
