Guest kevdo24 Posted September 25, 2004 Share Posted September 25, 2004 Heres a warning about the worst band on earth for all you Americans.One morning, I was switching through the TV channels and one video caught my eye. It was Busted's 'What I Go To School For' a song about falling in love with a teacher (rip off of Van Halen's Hot For Teacher). The song was crap and I thought the band would just die off. Sadly, this didnt happen and they are the most popular pop band in the UK. The thing that really bothers me about Busted (and to a certain extent, McFly) is that they play guitar really half-arsed. In their videos, they play an A chord at the 12th fret. I also saw concert footage of them, and I saw several fans doing... wait for it.... the DEVIL HORNS!!!I was extremely pissed off at this and even more so when McFly came out. They pose more than glam rockers, they are a disgrace to pop-punk (if they can be categorised as that) and they control the UK!! The sad thing is that young-guitarists will see them (and God-forbid Busted Clones) and think thats the way to play guitar. What happened to the days of the Sex Pistols and Led Zeppelin. Rock needs to be put back into the mainstream and young-guitarists must be shown the talents of Slash, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix.Hopefully, Busted will fail in America and they will lose the ability to write songs and disappear from our TV screens. If they do become famous in America, a generation of crap guitarists will be born and the charts will be swamped with Guitar-pop. So for guitar-music's sake, do not promote Busted in anyway and just pray that these Green-Day wannabes will fade-away. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
