McFly are an English pop rock band who were successfully launched into the music scene in early 2004 with their number one single, "5 Colours in Her Hair". The band was founded by Tom Fletcher (born 17 July 1985) and also consists of Danny Jones (born 12 March 1986), Dougie Poynter (born 30 November 1987) and Harry Judd (born 23 December 1985). They are signed to the Island Records label and are managed by Prestige Management.
As of May 2007, McFly have an impressive chart record of twelve top ten singles, seven of which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and two number one albums, their debut being Room on the 3rd Floor followed by Wonderland. Their third album, Motion in the Ocean, was released on 6 November 2006 and charted at number six. An announcement was made on their MySpace page in April 2007 that the band will be releasing a Greatest Hits so Far compilation on [October 22nd 2007]], and a fourth studio album in March 2008.
The name "McFly" was chosen by Tom Fletcher, the band's founding member, based on his love for the American science-fiction comedy Back to the Future series and Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly. Fletcher had originally auditioned for Busted, but was rejected. He then started writing songs with Busted member James Bourne and was asked to come along to film auditions for a new band, V. Jones came along to the audition mistaking it for an audition for a Busted-like band. Fletcher spoke to Jones afterwards and Jones and Fletcher moved into the Intercontinental Hotel in London for 2 months, and the two began writing songs along with Bourne. To complete the band, they held auditions at London's Covent Garden for a drummer and a bass player. Coincidentally, Poynter and Judd both auditioned on the same day. Thus, McFly was formed.
