Big Time Rush (BTR) was an American Boy Band, created by Nickelodeon in 2009 for the show of the same name.

The group was able to establish itself as a successful band independent of the show, releasing three albums and three extended plays, with five tours. One of these tours, 2012's Better With U tour, also served as fellow boy band One Direction's first US performances.

Following their television show's conclusion, the band went on indefinite hiatus in 2014.

Tropes in their works:

  • The Cameo: The music video for "City is Ours" features cameo appearances from a few actresses from the Big Time Rush show.
  • Cover Version:
    • They cover a number of Beatles songs in the Big Time Movie soundtrack.
    • Another one of their songs 'No Idea' is actually a reworked/half-rewritten version of a song by the same name by All Time Low. Both versions share a cowriter, Christopher 'Tricky' Stewart, and he produced Big Time Rush's version, so one can only imagine who introduced it to them. Whichever version is better is usually up to the listener.
  • Rock Star Song: "Famous," which, while ostensibly asking "do you want to be famous?" basically says "look at us, we are famous."

  • Sampling: Of course, "Windows Down" takes its instrumentation and chorus from Blur's "Song 2".
  • Theme Tune Extended: The full version of "Big Time Rush" is about three minutes long, compared to the short version on the show.
  • Title Drop: Their song "Big Time Rush", also the theme tune for their show.
