Role in episode

Boys Who Cry is first mentioned by Pearl when she requests them to sing at her birthday party. They show up out of a gift box after SpongeBob pulls up with all her gifts. They charge $1,000,000 just to show up at any place for singing.



  • It is revealed in "Whale of a Birthday" that they sell various merchandise, such as posters and CDs.
  • They are a parody of the Jonas Brothers.
    • They could also be a parody of Boys II Men, since both bands have three members, are all male, and share the same genre of music (pop/R&B).
    • They could also be a spoof of the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, or a male version of the Spice Girls (which Victoria Beckham, Queen Amphitrite's voice actress, was a member of).
