"Year 3000" as written by and Charlie/bourne Simpson....
One day when I came home at lunch time
I heard a funny noise
Went out to the backyard to find out
If it was one of those rowdy boys
Stood there with my neighbor called Peter
And a flux capacitor
He told me he built a time machine
Like one in a film I've seen yeah
He said

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

He took me to the future in the flux thing
And I saw everything
Boy bands, and another one, and another one
And another one
And girls there with round hair like Star Wars
Float above the floor

We drove around in the time machine
Like one in a film I've seen yeah
He said

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

I took a trip to the year 3000
This song had gone multi-platinum
Everybody bought our seventh album
It had outsold Kelly Clarkson
I took a trip to the year 3000
This song had gone multi-platinum
Everybody bought our seventh album

He told me he built a time machine
Like one in a film I've seen yeah

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed, but they lived underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter
Is doing fine
Doing fine

    General CommentBusted's original version has a more mature sound to it..And I find it superior to the JB cover-Though this version isn't all that bad...BUT- why take other people's songs -Change a few words-And release it to gain fame and money....Write your own shit.

    General CommentWhoever thinks busteds verion is "perverted" are utter PRUDES. I mean the only lyrics that the Jonas brothers changed were mainly the bit about the tripple breasted women swimming around town naked... err thats not bad at all... and the changes the jonas brothers made are so unsubtle, you can totally tell when they sing which lyrics sound totally out of place.
    Also what is WRONG with saying your great great great granddaughter is "pretty fine"? yeah sure it might be a bit pedo to say that but this song isnt supposed to be serious really is it? and saying who wrote the song must have a "sick twisted mind" o dear... how old are you? like 10? that the normal age for jonas brothers fans right? cause I mean they can't even mention PG 13 stuff in their songs. Im sure life will have so many other shockers to throw at you so if u cant handle the relatively tame busteds version of year 3000, I seriously pity you and encourage you to grow the fuck up.
    I also agree with that the jonas brothers should write their own stuff... and a lot of you seem to be under the impression that the Jonas brothers write all their own stuff... news flash.. they dont. fair enought hey may write SOME of their songs but they've even said themselves that they only wrote a few of their songs and got with some writers to write others.... so dont be in shock when you find out a song your listening to is not a JONAS BROTHERS ORIGINAL.

    General CommentHahahahaha...Busteds version is PERVERSE? Haha...grow up. Its realistic. They were like 19 when they wrote that. 19 year old dudes ARE obsessed with boobs and nakes girls etc. Just cos Busted didnt manufacture everything about themselves and aim all their songs at 10 year olds doesnt mean theyre bad. At least Busted were a real band. The jonas brothers sure as hell arent. Theyre all about making money for Disney. Its pathetic.

    General Commentyou little girls actually think this shit is music? holy fucking donkey dick. these lyrics are so gay and faggoty, jesus christ. and i swear to god if you say "oh you just dont understand true love" oh shut the fuck up, neither do you. this is just some pussy song made by those corporate sellouts Disney to milk their cash cow, the jonas faggots.

    I hope you like how much you've fucked up society by buying into this shit you call rock. Real rock is zeppelin, sabbath, metallica, rush, the police. Not "oooh ooh yeah bay bay oooh"

    their guitarist plays the most simplistic chords and strings. but I bet none of you know what a guitar is because you all think this is music.

    thanks for fucking up mainstream society even more. and if you call me a hater, go ahead. it's just the truth, you're just stubborn bitches in denial. and if you say I don't have a life, I probably have more of a life than you little pussies can dream of. if you think i'm jealous of their looks, lulz. they look like they were the spawn of rosie o'donnel.

    and if you're actually taking the time to decipher these obviously well thought-out and extremely mind bending and complicated lyrics, well i've lost all faith in humanity

    General CommentIts making me laugh at all the people who have described Busted as perverts. Just cause they sing about naked women with three boobs. There are so many more song that are more 'perverted'. Busted were like 20 when they relesed this so I think there mature enough to sing about naked women... its only one line. And I feel its kinda an odd line they replaced it with...

    Also, why replace Michael Jackson for Kelly Clarkson? Is it because the Jonas brothers are trying to keep it real (what with living underwater in about 990 year) and not aim too high or because Disney doesn't feel that children now won't know who MJ is? I highly doubt that they would know what a flux capacitor is or even the Back To The Future films referenced in this song.

    In conclusion, this is just another example of a cover that hasn't worked and the original is still better. I only found out today that the Jonas Brothers had cover it.
