** 'Dawson's Geek' is, you guessed it, a reference to someone who's obsessed with ''Series/DawsonsCreek,'' even containing a slight rendition to the show's theme song and a parody of the chorus of that song.

Busted are a British PopPunk BoyBand that formed in 2001, comprising of band members James Bourne, Charlie Simpson, and Matt Willis. They'd initially split up in 2005, due to Charlie wanting to focus on other music projects and the other two didn't want to continue the group without him. Simpson had quit the band and started the Post-Hardcore band Fightstar, as well as releasing a few solo albums, Bourne went on to form the Pop Punk band Son of Dork, which lasted three years before going on hiatus, and started a solo career under the name Future Boy (he ''really'' loves ''Back to the Future'') and as himself, and Willis continued by himself solo.

* BoyBand: Often incorrectly labelled as one (even on this site), though you'd be forgiven for thinking so, as they were marketed as one back in the early-2000s when they started and their first album is ''rife'' with several songs taking cues from boy bands from the same time. Thankfully, they moved away from this after their first album, though they've always played their own instruments (including Charlie having always been credited as playing the drums on their albums, though he's also shown doing so in a few of their music videos) and written their own songs.



* CrossDresser: Matt appears as the bride in 'Crashed The Wedding,' seemingly channelling Sam Fox.

* PrecisionFStrike: In 'What Happened to Your Band,' James included the line, "They fuck with my mind and make me miserable."
** Earlier on their second album, 'Who's David' includes the word "bitch" (though censored out of the album version) and in the original version of the chorus, they sang the line "You're just a whore, who sleeps around the town" instead of the album's version of the line.
** They seem to do a bit more swearing nowadays, as their third album has songs with some light swearing at points.



* ShoutOut: 'Year 3000' contained references to Film/BackToTheFuture, as shown in the page quote.
** 'Year 3000' also referenced Michael Jackson, 'Fake' contained shout-outs to ''Film/WhenHarryMetSally'', and 'Britney' contained shout-outs to both [[Music/BritneySpears the titular Ms Spears]] and Music/{{NSYNC}}. James Bourne liked this trope.

quote. It also referenced Michael Jackson, Jackson. The Jonas Brothers' cover got in on it too with some of the changed lines, changing Michael Jackson to Kelly Clarkson...for some reason and the "triple-breasted women" line, a likely reference to ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', was changed to a reference to ''Franchise/StarWars''.
** 'Crashed the Wedding' was written as a shout out to ''Film/TheGraduate'' and the first line of the lyrics, "I'm so rushed off my feet, looking for Gordon Street" is one to ''Film/WaynesWorld2''.

** [=McBusted's=] song 'Air Guitar' has the line, "Jimmy Page and Brian May won't believe the way that I can play my air guitar."

* NewSoundAlbum: Their comeback album ''Night Driver''. The album seems to have mostly abandoned the PopPunk elements of their sound in favour of something more influenced by funk, electronica and synthpop. The influence of Gunship, the {{Retraux}}-styled synthwave side project of Charlie's Fightstar band members, is also noticeable on several songs.
