"Boyband" as written by Brendan Brown and James Bourne....

Boy's we've been here for a while
But we've finally got the style
Strike your pose and fake a smile
Give me Kenny, give me Kyle
I hate to break it but it's true
Fifteen minutes we'll be through
And I won't have to talk to you

Now you know the words you fool
Sing along to you own tune
Wrote to prove you are a tool
Tell your friends you joined a boyband
Boyband

Good Chalotte said they like McFly
Is half their fanbase gonna cry?
It's so pathetic dry your eyes
When you gonna realise a tun's a tune?
I don't know why the metalheads want us to die
But these days they're all under nine
So I'll be fine

Now you know the words you fool
Sing along to you own tune
Wrote to prove you are a tool
Tell your friends you joined a boyband
Boyband

I get calls from girls who saw me on TV
Behind my back they're saying nasty thing about me

"There's the kid who blew it all,
I sat next to him in school
Everyone thought he was cool
'til he quit his job and joined a boyband"
Boyband

Now you know the words you fool
Sing along to you own tune
Wrote to prove you are a tool
Tell your friends you joined a boyband
Boyband

Join a boyband
Join a boyband
Screw your life up
Join a boyband
Kids will hate you
Out to get you
Ever since you
Joined a boyband
It's really scary
Palms are sweaty
Potato guns are armed and ready
Screwed your life up
Just like Eddie
Ever since you
Joined a boyband

    General CommentI think this song is about how almost everybody hates boybands but is just as fake as them. Because how people want to be like everyone else.

    General CommentOh, but everybody thinks
    That everybody knows
    About everybody else
    Nobody knows anything about themselves
    'Cause they're all worried about everybody else
    Yea, mmhmm, aw

    General Comment"When you gonna realise a tune's a tune?

    completely true.
    these days people seem to think that if you like metal, or hardcore: you can't like pop, or punk, etc.

    "a tune's a tune"
    why is there so much hate between "groups" of people?

    General Commenti don't think this song is about son of dork themselves.. it was written by james Bourne who was a member of Busted before they split up and then started son of dork.
    During the busted-hype in the uk they were often called boyband and had lots of trouble because of that
    the line "Good Chalotte said they like McFly
    Is half their fanbase gonna cry?" refers to mcfly who were friends with busted, especially mates of james. They pretty much go through the same thing right now as busted did a few years ago.
    the first part could also include experiences james made in his time of busted ..he talks about some things being fake and the guys being forced to do certain things to fit their image.
    another aspect which could be important to understand those lyrics is that james himself is a big fan of boybands like backstreet boys.. he has often complained about being juged for that
    so what do you think of that?
