How To Destroy...McFly

How To Destroy McFly

NOTE: Destroying McFly would be a terrible thing to do. Think about it, you destabilise the power-base at the top end of the boyband food-chain, and that just leaves room for the twin perils of a plague of Bel's Boys, or the re-emergence of the lesser spotted Westlife. But should your McFly infestation become overwhelming, well, you know what to do, OK?

    I know this is a joke and stuff, but why are you comparing McFly to Westlife, and all the other typical boybands?

    McFly actually write their own songs, write their own music, and play their own instruments!

    They may be boys in a band, but it doesn't mean they are the typical boyband!

    My McFly infestation is pretty overwhelming lol, but I will never lower myself to use the McFly spray!! :P

    [Good job too. Do we REALLY want Freefaller back? We do not. - Fraser]

    McFly are awesome!!!!!!
    don't make fun of them

    They are way way more talented than people like westlife.

    Mcfly Write their own songs play their own instruments what do westlife do? Nothing. All they do is cover songs and they basically never sing live.

    Mcfly are talented and amazing musicians. Don't dis them they have a loyal fan base who will always have something to say.

    [OK, you're missing the point a little here. McFly are all that stand between us pop-lovers and the evils of a Westlife-dominated chart. And as such, destroying them would be a BAD THING. Having said that, Westlife CAN sing live. I've heard it - Fraser]

    So what're you supposed to do? Spray it at them or just smoosh them with it? :P

    Bands who don't write songs give songwriters a job. Sometimes songwriters more talented than bands who do write their own songs.

    huh i don't get it :/....ps if its mean DON'T cause then you would have 2 put up with westlife 24/7 and that would be bad...hay instead of taking the p*** outta mcfly why not westlife?????

    Dudes!! The voice = an instrument.

    Just because it's not made of metal or wood or whatever doesn't make the sound it produces any less vital to the music, capiche?!

    And why would Westlife avoid singing live? Have you HEARD them live?

    i think you should apologise.

    the mcfly street team have been discussing this blog and have come to the conclusion that you should make an official apology to mcfly and the mcfly street team

    [I'm sorry you don't get that this is just a joke and not a really real suggestion. Does that count? - Fraser]

    But they arn't going anywhere just yet. Years ahead of them, yeah.

    Just to be absolutely clear. Here's some links which might help the McFly street team calm down a bit.

    1: The McFly ChartBlog interview with questions taken from - amongst others - the McFly street team...

    Part 1...
    Part 2...

    2: The five-star review for 'Transylvania'...

    3: The five-star review for 'Sorry's Not Good Enough'...

    4: Nine other 'How To Destroy...' cartoons...
    (Not to be taken seriously)

    And, without getting TOO pompous about it, having met McFly a few times, it's pretty clear they've a great sense of humour, even when the joke is at their own expense.

    So, if you're genuinely offended by this, I'm truly sorry. But you can't accuse ChartBlog of not loving McFly, cos that's cack. OK?

    McFly fans shouldn't feel their band is threatened - how vulnerable do they think McFly are to a joke like this???

    In fact, maybe they should be pleased Chartblog has done a 'How To Destroy' for McFly - all the acts that have been featured in this section are pretty big and robust - that's why you CAN do a joke like this - it wouldn't be funny if the target were unpopular and 'already down'.

    [And for the life of me I can't understand why. It's a joke in a series of jokes about stupid ways to destroy pop stars. What's to take offense at? And I said they're keeping Westlife from taking over the charts, which is also a compliment. Do me a favour though, don't tell the Westlife street team I said that...- Fraser]

    McFLY Spray, wow. How imaginative..

    10/10 for effort. Im pretty sure my 5 year old sister could come with with something wittier than that tbh.

    So, go attack someone with no talent. Like, the afore mentioned Westlife. :]

    1: My name is on the posting, and appears in reply to lots of the comments here. I made the cartoon. Me. Fraser.

    2: I didn't wish death on McFly. I actually said it would be terrible to destroy them. But you've just wished death on me. Come on ChartBlog street team, ATTACK! Oh, damn, there isn't one...

    3: I can't speak for McFly, but I seriously doubt they'd tell tell anyone off for doing a cartoon like this. Well maybe if someone actually made a massive can of McFly Spray and hit them with it, but I hope no-one does.

    tehee :P you better watch out! i think its funny anyway, maybe you could have done a mcfly swatter, you know mcSPLAT and all that, that would be a quicker death then a spray which slowly kills them, unless as the picture suggests you wack 'em with the can rather than actually using the spray.

    and i wouldnt worry about the bels boys street team as i doubt they will be around for long anyway, do you remember the last group (the last one i remember anyway) to have a CITV show? all stars, sorry allSTARS*, ring any bells? my sis loved them (shh though, shes a right trendie and would hate for that to get out) but nows its as if they never existed, their only remains seem to be darren in holly oaks. before seeing bels boys on CB i didnt know that they even existed, and i still dont other than on this site.

    Why destroy one of the greatest bands around, McFly, who are down-to-earth, and megaly talented, and who are willing to take all the slack been handed to them, but still come out just as brilliant as before?!? That is a rare skill for people to have! Could you do that?
    Make a Westlife, Pussycat Dolls, Girls Aloud, Scissor sisters, or any other annoyingly fake "band" spray, and you will be a millionaire my friend!

    Secondly, McFLY (being jokey themselves) would probably laugh at this themselves. They'd find it funny. I mean, they wouldn't if Fraser was plotting to go to a concert and blow them from Wembley Arena all the way to Australia. Or is he?.....(Only joking!)
    I would pay you a fortune if you could invent a spray to get rid of all the popstars that had their fame and success for years....and Scooch....

    I feel like I'm the only person who actually likes (and will admit) that I like BOTH McFly and Westlife. Comparing those two are kind of ridiculous because they do not do the same type of music, if you look past the generic word "pop".

    McFly are awesome rockers and I would love to see them live. I'm sure they put on an amazing show.

    Westlife are amazing vocalists (and I have seen them live) and they know how to sell a song. They only thing wrong with them is that their producers (not the band themselves) make them do all sorts of cheesy cover songs.

    See the difference?

    Anyway, I thought the cartoon was funny. Good job, Fraser.

    The year is 2122, and the latest post on the 'How To Destroy...McFly' page of ChartBlog has just arrived...

    "OMG somebody is trying to destroy McFly how could they they are EVIL you will die for this McFly are so better than you and always will be so there!!! :-)"

    Readers may be interested to know that all but one of the members of the once popular band McFly are now dead, and none of them were killed by spray cans. The surviving member, Harry, now aged 137, reports that he does not remember anybody ever trying to attack him with McFly Spray!

    Meanwhile, the comments continue to appear on the now legendary webpage, seemingly regardless of any actual events surrounding the band McFly. This has led the ChartBlog team to suspect that they are generated by a computer, set up by a deranged McFly fan sometime in the year 2007.
