Busted Credit Press 20th Anniversary

Ahead of their upcoming arena tour together, Busted have joined forces with Hanson on an all-star version of the US trio’s nineties hit, MMMBop

The Year 3000 group are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new greatest hits album of re-recorded classics featuring an extended line-up of guests.

Having released new ‘2.0’ versions of their own tracks Loser Kid (feat Simple Plan) and Meet You There (feat Neck Deep), the boys have teamed up with the sibling trio on a re recorded version of their breakthrough track.

MMMBop 2.0 is out May 26 and available to pre-save now.

Busted will release their first-ever greatest hits LP later this year, featuring re-worked classics from their career and guest stars including All Time Low and McFly.

Speaking exclusively in RETROPOP’s May 2023 cover feature, Charlie teases: “There’s a couple of songs we’ve completely reworked. Meet You There is now a full band song and it sounds really great.”

Marking their latest milestone, the band will also embark on a huge arena tour, kicking off in September and playing across the UK and Ireland through October – with Matt promising it will be their “best ever”.

“We have so many ideas,” he says. “We’re in the stage where we’re throwing everything at people and they’re saying, ‘Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.’ Then they come back and say, ‘No, no, no, no, no – that’s gonna cost you all of your money. You can’t do that!’

“But at the moment, we’re just coming up with the coolest shit we can think of and if 30 per cent of what we’ve come up with happens, it will be the best show ever.”
