Busted

Originally grabbing the public's attention with their hooky punk and emo-pop sound, Britain's Busted broke up in 2005, only to re-form a decade later as a sophisticated synth pop and disco-funk-influenced outfit. Hailing from Essex, Busted were formed in 2000 by longtime friends Matt Willis (vocals, guitars, keyboards) and James Bourne (vocals, bass). After some lineup changes, Suffolk-born Charlie Simpson (vocals, guitars, drums) joined and the band was solidified. In 2002, they debuted with a playful self-titled album that found the trio straddling the line between cheeky blink-182-style punk and melodic, guitar-based songcraft. Initially slow to start, the album eventually reached number two on the U.K. albums chart and produced a handful of hit singles, including "What I Go to School For," "The Year 3000," "You Said No," and "Sleeping with the Light On."

On the heels of their breakout success, Busted released their sophomore album, 2003's A Present for Everyone, which showcased a slightly nervier rock sound accented by keyboards and horns. Also well-received, the album produced three number one hits with "Crashed the Wedding," "Who's David," and "Thunderbirds/3AM." It also garnered them several Brit Award nominations, including Best British Group, Best British Breakthrough Artist, and Best Pop Act. The band then capped off 2004 with a headlining tour, documented on Live: A Ticket for Everyone. In 2005, Simpson left the group, choosing instead to focus his attentions on his post-hardcore band Fightstar and, later, his own folky solo career. Subsequently, Bourne and Willis also set Busted aside and spent the next several years pursuing their own solo projects.

It wasn't until 2013 that Bourne and Willis reunited for a joint tour with Britain's McFly, billed as McBusted. Encouraged by the positive fan response, the duo approached Simpson about a possible full Busted reunion. Despite some initial reticence, Simpson jumped back on board and the rejuvenated Busted decamped to Philadelphia, where they began collaborating on new material. Since their breakup, Busted had matured and deepened their shared musical influences, a transformation that found them communing over classic '80s adult contemporary recordings from Bruce Hornsby and Phil Collins, as well as modern electronic productions by Daft Punk and the Naked and Famous. It was in this creative headspace that they flew to Los Angeles and began recording their third studio effort with producer John Fields (Switchfoot, Jonas Brothers, Jimmy Eat World). Released in 2016, Night Driver showcased a set of hooky, neon-lit anthems that found the group exploring a sophisticated blend of club-ready '80s-style disco-funk, synth-laden new wave, and bass-heavy alt-pop. Included on Night Driver were the singles "Coming Home" and "On What You're On." ~ Matt Collar

I loved Busted, I'm really sad they broke up, but at least their music is still here! Yay!

These guys rock! I like both them and the JoBros, but it does kind of upset me that they stole Busted's song and turned it into a hit. It seems like the JoBros get all the credit for a song that isn't even theirs! But I still lov them both and think that they are extremely talented.

i really love this band.. and about the year 3000 thing i think it should stay with them and the jonas brothers shouldnt even mess with it, in my opinion. pEaCe <;p

i love both the jonas brothers and busted, but i didnt know that they song what i go to school for first, i think it sounds good both ways.

Emilimily,
There is no need to hate. Busted sang this song before the Jonas Brothers did. In fact, the Jonas Brothers have even mentioned that they are friends with Busted. I suggest you do your research before commenting. And once again, there is no need to hate. *Peace*Love* J o n a s *
