Default Busted = .... Bon Jovi?!

Yeh, i know what am i goin on about but think...cast ur mind back to '83/84 when a 'good looking' bunch of guys decided to form a commercial pop rock band and sing about girlfriends dates and proms.. they all played their own instruments (not always live back then) and hit the big time by sailing in to the charts with their catchy choruses and simple lyrics...
Busted, as much as i loathe them, are as close to a new bon jovi as we get.. and if they are around in 5-10yrs you never know they might actually turn out good and end up touring the world..before releasing thier greatest hits with a twist!

only that Bon jovi were playing at Monsters Of Rock and Busted play at THE DOME....i don't even know how you come up with this.
Bon Jovi were always singing Live in the early 80s...Bruce Springsteen jammed with Jon ....they sold about 3 000.000 without RADIO and ,only touring.....
do you really think you can compare them...let's face it.
Nobody will know BUSTED in 3 years....

i think this is a fair point. however, busted need a massive second or third album which is purely rock and not pop or otherwise the comparison is unjusitifed.

as for singing live. bon jovi mimed on almost every show they did at the beginning. not the fault of themselves, but the tv shows.

Don't make me laugh. they are a boy band with guitars (do they even play or r they for show?). the closest band to jovi today would be mmmm, none really spring to mind.

prior to common opinion the guys from busted are actually extremely talented, can and sometimes do play live and can harmonise brilliantly with each other.

a narrow mind cuts back the amount it can take in people
