The McFly boys have revealed that their third album, Motion in the Ocean, was inspired by legendary British rock band Queen.

The band, whose second greatest hits album Memory Lane: The Best Of McFly was released on Monday, told Digital Spy that they wanted to take a “fun and poppy” third album following their “rebellious” second album, Wonderland.

“[Motion in the Ocean] was a bit of a reaction to Wonderland,” the boys said. “We made the record in our new flat and produced our own demos. We didn’t leave the house for a week and a half and wrote the whole thing.”

“We intentionally wanted to do stuff that was more fun and poppy. There was also quite a strong Queen influence throughout it.”

Among the most popular songs from the 2006 album was ‘Star Girl’, which was played every Friday on Radio 1 before host Chris Moyles left the show earlier this year.

McFly’s bassist Dougie Poynter, who was last year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner admitted: “The title [Motion in the Ocean] came from someone telling us about their small d*ck. He said, ‘it’s not about the size of your boat, it’s the motion in the ocean’.”

Talking of small penises, the McFly boys recently told Now magazine that theirs are “below average” in size.

Singer and guitarist Danny Jones said that the McFly’s new greatest hits album contains “lots of fan favourites”.

“There’s a song called ‘Little Joanna’ on there, which remains one of our most complex songs. We’ve never played it live for that reason!”

Also on the album are new tracks ‘Love Is Easy,’ which reached number 10 in the charts this month, as well as ‘Do Watcha’ and ‘Cherry Cola’, both brand new songs.
