Busted is a compilation album by British pop rock band Busted, released in the United States in October 2004.[1] Ten of the twelve tracks had been released as singles in the United Kingdom, with "Falling for You" being included with the intention of its being released as the group's first single in the United States, and "Teenage Kicks" being included due to its popularity amongst British fans. The song is a cover of The Undertones' classic, first issued as the B-side of "Who's David". This could allow the album to be viewed as the band's greatest hits. The album contains four tracks from their first album, also titled Busted and seven from the follow-up A Present for Everyone. The release of the album coincided with a documentary titled America or Busted, which chronicled the band's ill-fated attempts to break into the American market.[2]
