I know no-one likes Busted. I know that we've all done our best to forget their existence and that they don't matter.

However. I was unlucky enough to see them perform Teenage Kicks on Top Of The Pops. I wanted to cry. None of them can sing, but they can't do a rock-star 'get away with not being able to sing' either. The solo was never very complicated, yet still they managed to take out most of the notes and kill it... Woe is me.

Is there anything we can do to stop the carnage? And before you suggest it, someone else had the TV remote.

THEY DID IT AGAIN?

Once is bad enough, but twice? My god. I'm off to slash my wrists.

Christ, they really really are absolutely wank, they even murdered what was a half decent song.

Mank, it's at number 1 in the chart...

Damn, I just signed your death certificate with that, didn't I?

And there's some ghastly cover of "I get by with a little help from my friends" at number 2. I've managed not to hear that recently though. Thank fuck.

Did they do it in the awful 'heavy rock' voice they tried on the brits?

As for the 'little help from my friends, it's bad but there've been soo much worse. :(

Oh please.

Teenage kicks holds some sentimental value to alot of people but it is in no way a good song. It isn't even sung well. Fegal Sharky can fuck off.

Stop crying about it and stop watching bollocks like the brits. That way you won't have anything to moan about.

It doesn't need to be good musically to be a good song, the fact is that it's a fucking classic and Busted have not only murdered it just the once, but twice. There ought to be a law against crap bands covering good songs.

Yeah its a great song really, even if it only has one verse :)

Zeitgeist ? Hmm, for me Id say the greatest punk song of all time would be New Rose by the Damned, or Holiday in the Sun by the Pistols. Thats a subject thats almost a thread on its own, if anyone could be arsed to post on it :)

So manks belated agressive retort was fairly justified. So calm down, and have a banana.

Stop being an idiot. I was pissed off with the "oh nothing new there then" comment. I wasn't rising to the aggresive retort, merely the way he put his point across as a personal attack.

Their cover of it at the Brits was GOOD. Infidels.

Let's just forget it, eh? The comment I made was rather dickheadish and yes I accept your point about putting my point across as a personal attack, but I thought you were being blunt for the sake of being blunt.
