McFly (formed 2004) McFly are an English pop band consisting of Tom Fletcher (vocals/guitar), Danny Jones (guitar/vocals), Dougie Poynter (bass) and Harry Judd (drums).

Formation: McFly's story began when Tom Fletcher was enlisted onto the songwriting team for the band Busted. He was soon asked to audition to be in a band called V and at these auditions he met Danny Jones who he roped in with him on the Busted songwriting team. They soon stopped writing for Busted and decided to collaborate and make a band, advertising auditions in NME. Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd were subsequently recruited with the pair making acquaintance over their shared love of 'The Starting Line'. Fletcher chose the band name 'McFly' after Marty McFly in 'Back To The Future'; while Jones was initially reluctant to agree on the name, he soon warmed to it after watching the movie.

They released their debut album 'Room on the 3rd Floor' also opened at number one, was certified double platinum and broke the world record for the youngest band to have a debut number one album.

Their third album 'Motion in the Ocean' was also released with single 'Star Girl' reaching number one. 2007 saw them release their seventh number one 'Baby's Coming Back/Transylvania' as well as their 'All the Greatest Hits' compilation album in 2007 featuring three new songs 'The Heart Never Lies', 'The Way You Make Me Feel' and 'Don't Wake Me Up'. Their subsequent tour was supported by Elliot Minor and Saving Aimee.

In 2008, they gave away their fourth album 'Radio:Active' in The Mail on Sunday before releasing it again with four added tracks, a DVD and a 32-page booklet. It's single 'Do Ya/Stay With Me' was released for Children In Need but was their lowest charting single so far.
