Here is something you thought you'd never read; Isaac Hanson, (yes of the "MMMBop" brother band Hanson) is lashing out at rockers Kings Of Leon.

The eldest Hanson knows a thing or two about working with siblings and isn't buying the band's (made of three brothers and their cousin) claims of vocal issues and exhaustion, and says family feuding is the reason behind their recently cancelled tour.

"I have a hard time with musicians who act like pricks because it just makes me mad," he told WENN.

"I just sit there and I go, 'You know what, dude, no matter whether you're in a band just surviving or you're in a bus playing stadiums, one way or another you're still among the rare breed of people that are actually getting paid to do it.'"

The guitarist and singer specifically called out the Kings of Leon for their behavior saying, "They're irritating people; you can't do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans' willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out."

Hanson even compared their situation to another broken band -- Oasis and brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher. He told WENN:

"It made it hard for people to have a lot of fun at their shows -- because they were worried that Noel (Gallagher) was gonna get pissed off (and walk off) ... But I don’t think that they (Oasis) necessarily didn’t finish shows.”
