McFly are obviously a cause for much debate, alot of people respect them as musicians that cater for a section of the counties musical tastes, while another section of people persist in trying to rile their fans. I think we can see who the children are here.
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's first single 'five colours' went straight to number one in 2004

A band, yes, a BAND. And in my opinion, they ARE talented, and they play GOOD music. No, they are NOT punk or emo. They are simply POP. To the closeminded freaks who say people should listen to "good" music, shut your mouth and keep the hate to yourselves. McFly is a good band, whether you like them or not!
Someone who likes only one's music...
Closedminded freak: OMG!!! I H8 MCFLY!!! I LYKE LUVV MY MUSIC ONLII LYKE OMGG!!!
Me: Shut up.

Someone who doesn't like McFly but respects people's opinions...
Openminded person: I don't like McFly but it's your opinion if you like them.
Me: :)

A band that absolutely rule and have done nothing to deserve the disgusting remarks some of the people have been saying.
People who make disgusting comments against them are just insanely jealous of McFly's talent.
McFly are brilliant! And Tom is really fit.

An awesome band who play they're own instruments && write their own songs.

It really pisses me off how much they are compared && called 'baby busted'

I also hate it when people say that McFly are pretending to be rock.

WTF?

Since when have McFly ever claimed they were rock?
NEVER. So people should get their facts right before jumping in and fucking hating on them.

Lmao.
ThanQ

Pee.ess.
I love Douglas Poynter =]

Taken from the hit Movie Back To The Future, used to context to indicate someone has made a poorly thought out decision lacking in judgement and basic common sense. SAid in a sarcastic tone of voice.
"Hello, McFly?" - followed by a rapping on head gesture when someone asks an obvious question.

I don't know about you guys, but I love mcfly.
They have never claimed to be a rock band, so I have no idea what you dudes are talking about, so take my advice...go find some friends.
Oh My Gosh, its mcfly <3

One of the best boy bandish bands in the UK. Sure they may play pop music but they do play their own instruments and write their own music. Stop dissing them.
McFly?! Oh you mean that great band!! Yeah, they're great.

the best british boy band ever, that some people dont appreciate because their taste in music is lacking so much they only know stupid bands that think they rule the world. Don't listen to the person who said that, how come mcfly filled 20 arenas after only their first single was released? People who like mcfly will go far as they are such a good british boyband
Stupid person: mcfly are so rubbish.
Editor of pop magazine, or a smart person: They're really cool, everyone likes them. You obviously like stupid music, like a stupid person. I for one, love mcfly, as do all of my co-workers.
