Busted were first formed in 2000 and released their first, self-titled album in 2002, before their 2003 album A Present For Everyone threw them into even wider fame. Their third album Night Driver was a departure from their original sound. NME noted upon the release of " Coming Home", that the band were much more ' synth-pop' influenced. [115] Influence from the 1980s decade and Daft Punk were also noted. [116] The group also branched out into R&B and bass-heavy alternative pop. [117]The Vault (26 June 2012).

Looking to find a new band member, Willis and Bourne placed an ad in NME magazine, [16] titled "'Guitarist and singer wanted for pop band…'".

Charlie Simpson and Tom Fletcher were both offered a place to complete the line-up, but Busted's manager told Fletcher via a phone call a few days later that the band was to go ahead as a trio, comprising Bourne, Willis and Simpson.

If Busted were the anti-boy band, Charlie Simpson was the anti-lead singer. The well-bred multi-instrumentalist (a direct descendant of Sir William Sterndale Bennett, no less), had enough of singing suggestive lyrics over pop-punk riffs after three years in the Brit Award-winning trio, & left in 2003. Fightstar, his deliberately emo post-hardcore spin-off band, followed, before he took up a solo career.
