--> '''Stood there was my neighbour called Peter and a [[Film/BackToTheFuture Flux Capacitor]]'''
-->- ''"Year 3000"''



British PopPunk boy band that formed in 2001 and split up in 2005. Despite being mainly supplanted by McFly in the public consciousness, they were influential at the time in bringing back guitar-driven pop bands and had a great many copy-cat acts at the time. They were also the number one selling band in the UK for two years, outselling Coldplay.

They were best known for their songs "What I Go To School For" and "Year 3000" (both were later covered by TheJonasBrothers), for providing the theme song for the Live-Action ''Film/{{Thunderbirds}}'' movie, and in America for their reality show ''America or Busted''. They released 3 albums, two studio albums and one live album.
