Now that Busted’s James Bourne and Matt Willis have hooked up with McFly for a tour under the guise of supergroup McBusted, here’s a more in-depth look at two of the ’00s biggest boy bands-with-guitars.

Busted

Capitalising on the bratty punk-pop sound popularised by the likes of Good Charlotte and Avril Lavigne, British trio Busted offered a more teenybopper-friendly version when they burst on to the scene in 2002. Their self-titled debut album not only sold a million copies in the UK alone, it also spawned the first of their four number one singles (“You Said No”) and, arguably their signature hit, “Year 3000,” later covered of course by the Jonas Brothers.

After adding to their chart-topping tally with “Crashed The Wedding,” “Who’s David” and parent album A Present For Everyone, the band won Best Breakthrough and Best Pop Act at the BRIT Awards. The group then recorded the theme tune to the Thunderbirds movie and released a live album, A Ticket For Everyone. But by that point, Charlie Simpson had become increasingly frustrated with the band’s musical direction. And just weeks after leaving in late 2004 to concentrate on his new alt-metal group Fightstar, Busted called it a day.

McFly

With guitarist Tom Fletcher both a one-time member and a co-writer on their second studio effort, McFly were inevitably compared to Busted on their arrival in 2004. But the quartet soon went on to surpass the success of their predecessors. Debut single “Five Colours In Her Hair” became the first of seven UK number ones. Parent album Room On The 3rd Floor saw them become the youngest ever band to debut at the top of the British charts, while they also flirted with Hollywood by starring in Lindsay Lohan vehicle Just My Luck.

The band’s sound was also much more adventurous. 2005’s Wonderland took in everything from Beatles-esque pop (“All About You”) to theatrical prog-rock (“The Ballad Of Paul K”). 2010’s Above The Noise was an electro-tinged affair featuring collaborations with Taio Cruz and superstar producer Dallas Austin. The group recently celebrated their tenth anniversary together with the rousing country-folk of “Love Is On The Radio.”

Winner: Busted may have paved the way for McFly, but with six more years of chart success to their name, it’s Tom, Dougie, Harry and Danny who deserve top billing on next year’s tour.

Watch below the full performance McFly did the other day at Xmas Party Live in Leeds.

“IT’S a bit early to be celebrating Christmas isn’t it?” mused bah humbug Mcfly star Tom Fletcher as the bubblegum indie popsters kicked off the inaugural festive festival at the newly-opened Leeds Arena.

Perhaps he was feeling grumpy as McFly were clearly the elder-statesmen of a night when the sheer teenage exuberance exemplified by acts such as The Vamps and Rudimental made you understand that they need to broaden their horizons to a wider marketplace to continue achieving the huge success they have enjoyed so far.

Perhaps this explains the necessity for the four piece (on stage at least!) to team-up with their embryo pals Busted next year to form the so-called McBusted supergroup for a full arena tour.

And the large crowd – many decked out in tinsel and Christmas jumpers – clearly didn’t agree with spectacle-wearing Fletcher’s sentiment. Earlier in the day they had popped open the first window of their advent calendars and by jolly – and with a ho ho ho – they were here to start the party season with a bang.

But bizarre anti-Christmas comments aside the band delivered a feisty five-song set which had fans instantly on their feet. Five Colours in Her Hair sounded just like the record version while It’s All About You remains their finest moment. New single Love is on the Radio is standard-fare reminiscent of Big Country at their most commercial for those of us old enough to remember such things.

So the boys from The Vamps did another cover of one of McFly’s songs, this time they included in the EP of their new single Wild Heart a cover of Five Colours In Her Hair. Listen to the preview of the song below.

Metro did a list of the 5 pop artists who turned into actors but that in their opinion are awful actors and McFly are on the list.
What do you think? was McFly’s acting on Just My Luck awful or you liked their acting skills on it? Vote on the poll below!

Seriously, we love McFly, but appearing as themselves in a movie with Lindsay Lohan (presumably in a bid to raise the band’s profile in the US) was never really going to be a good idea was it? Perhaps they could try making a movie as McBusted instead.
