The three-piece band took the UK charts by storm with pop-punk energy in the early 2000s, with their debut single 'What I Go To School For' peaking at number three, following 'Year 3000' going to number two.

2003 would see their first number one with 'You Said No', and three more chart toppers followed, as well as two albums with combined sales of 4.5 million.

The band split in early 2005, but maintain a loyal following of fans who were delighted when Busted returned alongside McFly, forming McBusted for a UK tour in 2014.

The band released albums in 2016 and 2019, and have continued to tour since, celebrating their 20th anniversary with a Greatest Hits Tour earlier this year.
