McFly write songs that are pop, yes, and no, they do not pretend to be rock.
If McFly are only for conformist people then why do McFly fans get laughed at and told they are wrong everyday? If you have all forgotten, being a conformist is doing what other people WANT you to do. Liking McFly's music is not conformism, it is musical taste. Just as liking Guns n’ roses, Bullet for my valentine, Slayer, 50 cent or any other band is. People say 'McFly were manufactured for 8 year-olds' well The clash were manufactured for punks... do you have a problem with that?
As for the claims that they are manufactured do your research before you judge. Tom and Danny met at an audition for Busted WHICH THEY DID NOT GET INTO and spent alot of time writing songs in a hotel room before placing a PRIVATE add in the indie rock magazine NME to which Dougie and Harry auditioned for. Because Tom had almost got into Busted and had attended alot of other auditions he was known in the industry and soon McFly's talent was spotted and they were signed.
Does that sound manufactured to you?
To me that sounds like a band who worked for what they achieved.
McFly's Influences include the beach boys and blink 182. They describe their own music as 'pop-rock' and decribe themselves as 'A boyband with guitars'.
McFly are a fantastic british pop band and have a large following of young female fans, not sweaty fat men like the rock scene so thoroughly enjoy.
They regularly receive underwear and get boobs flashed at them thanks to their musical talent, good looks and all round fantasticness.
Generally, Mcfly are much better than you and unlike Mark from blink, dougie has good hair AND Tom is no longer fat thanks :)
you all suck cock.
Me: Yeh, i bet that sucks. i'd much rather have sweaty fat men shouting at me and jumping on me than fit birds showing me their massive boobs. that would make me vomit.

Now, not only are these four guys incredibly hot, theyr also incredibly talented. for every person who claims that they mime playing guitars, your very very wrong. they hav never mimed guitar playing ever since they started the career. at first, i actually did think that they ddnt play for real, because all of ther performances ddnt sound out of time or out of key, and most bands, even ones i like, happen to suck live. but them...they proved me wrong, i found out that they never mime guitar playing, which rele impressed me that they can sound so perfect all the time. also people say that they are copying busted. the thing is, charlie simpson of busted went to the same school, as Harry Judd from mcfly. as well as, matt willis and tom fletcher both attending sylvia young theatre school. on top of all this, tom tried out for busted and ddnt make it, but became very close friends with james elliot bourne. james has helped him, and to this day, still does, and did with mcfly's new album coming out july 21st. he helps write songs and find melodies. so in a sense, and mcfly has admitted to it, busted definately helped start them off on their big breakthrough by letting mcfly tour with them at the peak of their own career. sure the music they made may seem similar in a sense, but still will never be the same. all in all, mcfly are extremely amazing, and unless you dont like them because u dont enjoy ther music, you hate them because your jealous.. and thats completely believable :]
