    Why do they pretend to be playing their instruments when they're obviously not? Makes them look like even bigger fools than they already are. Anyone agree? Anyone even like them? Why? This was inspired after seeing them on the T4 thing.

    Yeah but at least they sang live. Which is better than most of the bands are doing. And nobody has played their instruments live either. Even Ash didn't play or sing live.

    Yeah, but Busted and McFly couldn't play if they wanted to. That makes them even crapper than they already are. I hate UK bands. They're just plain with no talent...

    So you hate all UK bands just because of Busted and Mcfly? There are other UK bands around.

    I don't think the RHCP would charge near £40 a ticket if they weren't going to play live. I'm going to see them this month and I shall be very disappointed if they weren't live. They were last time I saw them. Of course bands play live...just not at these Summer Pop gigs where they only get to play 2 or 3 songs - if all the bands wanted to play live then they'd have to spend ages changing the sets and sound checking beforehand and its not really worth it for 10 minutes worth of music.

    Give McFly credit for singing live though - there were only a few other acts who actually did bother to sing live (and one of those was Peter Andre...), even Ash - big festival band - didn't actually sing live, which I thought made them look bad. Plus McFly and Busted do sing and play live quite a lot of the time - I've seen various performances on Top of the Pops and other music shows where they've both sung and played live. Even on Jonathon Ross, Busted played their song and sung it completely live. Its not bands like Busted and McFly that put a bad name on British music - it's Blue and Girls Aloud and the like, that can't even mime in time to the music.

    Yup, that's hot.

    Busted and McFly make their money. I highly doubt their fans would care whether they played their instruments or not.

    As i have a friend in each of the two bands in question, I feel that I must stick up for them! No, they don't play live all the time, but wherever they can (ie the sound system is up to scratch) they at least sing live. I know Harry is really annoyed when he can't play live, because then he has to drum exactly as it is recorded, to stop it looking terrible. That's easier said than done...

    Monitoring on TOTP is notoriously dreadful, hence why many bands do not play live. You can't hear yourself singing, so usually most people just sound awful when playing live on there...

    Ive seen mcfly sing live 5 times, and play 0 times.

    McFly did play and sing live when they were number 1 on Top of the Pops - I'm absolutely certain they did.

    I hate both of them, they are rock wannabies who are worse than most pop.

    Whether they play live or not, what they're "playing" is crap anyway.
