- ARTIST: Busted
- SONG: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Rare is the pop band who chooses to cover one of the best loved seasonal carols that tells the story of the first Christmas. But then, Busted have never been most pop bands. After all, their biggest hit (‘Year 3000’) references Back to the Future, does it not?
Starting deceptively traditionally, with Charlie Simpson intoning the carol’s opening verse in a choral style, it soon gives way to a rollicking Californian surf punk pop style that would give New Found Glory a run for their money. Totally brilliant.
