McFly - A great live band with unfair reputation

McFly is a british rock/pop band, probably best known for their appearance in the Lindsay Lohan/Chris Pine movie Just My Luck. Another well known fact is that they are in the Guiness book of Records as the youngest band ever to score a #1 debut album on the UK charts - a record previously held by no other than The Beatles.
They have a reputation about being just another "boy band" which is far from the truth. On top of the evidence provided below they also write their own songs, play their own instruments, sing live and have their own record label. They have a couple of lame ballads, yes, but a bunch of their songs are actually great. Like Shine A Light and Too Close For Comfort. Another thing is that these guys is a very good live band - they sing and play extremely well.
SO! Prepare to have your preconceived notions torn apart.
