Taking Sides: Busted vs. The Jonas Brothers

Not much has changed, but they live underwater:

Busted vs. The Jonas Brothers.

Page 1 of 2
<<[1] [2] >>
Based on the video, BUSTED. Based on the song...tough one. I like the Kelly Clarkson, but I also like naked triple-breasted women (and Michael Jackson for that matter). Jonas delivery's a bit goofier.

Was excising MJ an edit or did they just want a more current shout out? (Other major change: "your great-granddaughter is pretty fine" vs. "she's DOING fine.")

That should be "the Kelly Clarkson reference," I guess. Or maybe I'll just start calling her THEE Kelly Clarkson.

of course Busted's better.
here's why:
they write their own songs
they sing them IN TUNE
they sing them at concerts IN TUNE (most of the time at least.. way better than Jonas Brothers)
their overall sound blend is better
better harmonizing (mostly the problems that Jonas brothers have getting in tune, their harmonizing is lacking greatly)
they've got James Bourne, freakin genius who's beyond talented in music, writes it, plays 3 different instruments(w/ expertise)
their voices are stronger and more powerful than Jonas's
they don't have anyone going through puberty, thus not cracking voices.

and last of all, they didn't need to copy someone else's song to try and make a hit.

that's all I gotta say.

LoL I have my vote for the Jonas Brothers, now here is why

1.They also write all of their songs.
2.They have awesome voices and they blend in together to make an awesome sound.
3.Even when they sing live(they sing live, not lip) they can be running around and still have that awesome tune(I should know cause I went to one of their concerts).
4.In the Jonas Brothers they have Joe Jonas who can write inspiring songs from experiences and he can sing, write, play the keyboard, and he can play the tambourine.
5.They are a band that first signed onto Disney Channel, they were successful on their first album, getting #1 on MTV with Mandy and #1 with iTunes with again Mandy,now with their new album getting on TRL at #6 with S.O.S, barely getting notice and already on FM radio when they started out with Radio Disney AM.
5.They send out a good message going through puberty, they are showing that anybody no matter what age can become a good singer and song writer, they are saying that if you are dreaming to get in the music business do go out and try it, there are no age limit to full fill your dreams

These two bands are both awesome, but in different ways. The Jonas Brothers blend, but maybe just a little too well. Busted might not blend well enough. They both write awesome songs, but the Jonas Brothers copy some songs from Busted. The Jonas brothers have written more songs, which counts for something. To get popular and on the hit lists, they did have to use several of Busted's songs, such as Year 3000. Overall, these two bands are HOTTTT!!!

Busted!

Busted is wayyy better!
1. they're not babies and have a little more edge in their songs.
2. they're grown up and have a larger fan span (notice how almost all the fans for JB are ages 7-15)
3. they write their own songs (James has written a lot of the songs for the Jonas Brothers)
4. they're original
5. they dont give a shit about what people think
6. JB are too boring... too "G" rated

I miss Busted a lot! but they've all done well for themselves. James Bourne is now in Son of Dork and a famous song writers (ask the Jonas Brothers) Charlie is in Fightstar. Matt has a pretty solid solo career.

i think if the jonas brothers were to split up, they wouldn't have much of a future. all they attract are young teen girls

Busted by far.
The Jonas Brothers cant sing, in my opinion anyway.
The only reason people like them are because they're hot. [which i do agree with especially joe (:]
I guess they'd be an okay band if they were at all original.
But yeah I love busted.

Okay wow, so much is wrong with what you just said, besides your lack of punctuation and grammar. Busted sang this song long before the Jonas Brothers. They didn't 'steel' their song, Jonas Brothers covered Busted's 'Year 3000' and 'What I Go To School For' they changed it a little. For your information Busted are no longer together, they are all doing their separate things now. But you wouldn't know that, because your so far up your American ass. Busted were amazing in their time. But yet so are the Jonas Brothers. I love them both, obviously in this situation Busted were better, they did write the song, but Jonas have amazing creative songs they wrote too. So please, think before you speak, and look up the facts.

Just watching the nokia green room thing and these jonas brothers come on and i cannot believe how standard and average their sound is im sure we had this sort of thing bout 5 years ago surely shouldnt we be moving forward in music not backward.

They just seem like little rent boys that have been given a guitar and a token fat boy and told to make a tribute to dated teen pop. But there still gonna be big cos of the mindless slugs out there.

YOU'RE ALL WRONG.
FIGHTSTAR > BUSTED AND JONAS BROTHERS.
But tbh, Busted are so much better than JB anyway. And even if James did write those lyrics, I dont like them and they dont make sense.
JB can write their own lyrics perfectly well so they shouldnt need to ruin Busted songs just because of their oversea sucess.

Busted is better by far. I have yet to find a reliable source that james bourne helped the jonas brothers change the lyrics to "Year 3000" and "That's What I Go To School For." Even if James did help, why should the jonas brothers need the song anyway? If they were a good enough band, they wouldn't need to copy a song, even with permission, to become popular. I also have never seen reference that Busted wrote the songs originally when the jonas brothers version is portrayed.
I wish Busted never broke up because this wouldn't have happened if they didn't. BUSTED FOREVER!

OKAY WELL ..

im british and grew up listening to Busted as one of the younger fans (10 -13) and i listen to JB now proberly as one of their older fans (15-16) Both bands are gret.. they both do write their own songs(even if JB did cover a few) it is said that james wrote way more songs for JB other than Year 3000 and what i go to school for.. JB ARE MORE WORLD WIDE (MAYBE JUST BECAUSE THEY are AMERICAN )

to the point of what i think .. They are both great and are the same but different ..

when it comes to the song year 3000 and what i go to school for even though i love both covers i grew up listening to BBusted and will always think their version is th best because thats what i grew up with ..

I mean really at the end of the day people are choosing the band they prefer and they prefer this band because they always hear about it (busted is unnowen in usa) and jb are unowen in th uk (kinda)

sooo thats what i think

also it is good that JB made the songs more "child friendly" but i was listening to these "dirty" songs when i was 10 and my mum was fine with it and bought me th album .. anyway

I don't have anything against the Jonas Brothers, but I think their versions of Year 3000 and That's What I Go to School For are worth shit. Year 3000 I don't have that much of a problem with as they didn't change much of the lyrics around, but I still hate how they made it so "clean." I've only heard half of their TWIGTSF version, as I had to turn it off in the middle of it. It was disgusting. It's not even the same story line. I don't know if you could even call it a cover. Just the tune and title are the same. Busted is defnitely better than the Jonas Brothers. I don't think Nick can sing. He squeaks every time he changes notes. Some of you have mentioned puberty being an issue in that department, and I agree. But like I said, I'm not one of those people who will hunt you down with an axe if you say TJB are better. I listen to some of their songs, but not the Busted covers.

My friend re-introduced me to Busted a few weeks ago (I half-forgotted about them) and their songs are AMAZZIIING.

They work much better than the Jonas Brothers and I'm kind of sick of the JBs and all their "OMG WE'RE SO PRETTY" crap. "AND WE'RE SO GOOD, WE DONT DO ANYTHING SCANDALOUS." It bores me.

They should probably go out and write some real songs. Not just copy awesome songs from Busted and other Decent bands, although heaps of bands go over songs.

EXAMPLE: Romeo&&Juliet - Dire Straights.


But yeah, BUSTEEED <3

well people have been saying that the jonas brothers and busted both wrote what i go to school for and year 3000, but james bourne wrote what i go to school for by himself before busted were a band, also year 3000 was only written by busted. people have also said that the jonas brothers stole 2 of busteds greatest hits but they had permission to redo those songs but the thing is they didnt redo the songs that much and busted sung it way better. Busted are better for loads of reasons because they are great on the guitars, drums, there amazing on the vocals, and at making songs. personally i dont like the jonas brothers but they are ok. but there not as good on the guitar as busted because if you listen just to the guitars theres alot of difference. also the JoBros singing isnt the nicest thing to hear, because there voices are kinda scratchy and not as good as Busted. so lets just put it this way :
JB, MJW, and CS, are alot better than KJ, NJ and JJ.

But The Only Bad Thing About Busted Is That They Broke Up.
