"Crashed the Wedding" is a song by British pop rock band Busted, composed by James Bourne and Tom Fletcher.[1] It was released as the first single from their second album, A Present for Everyone, on 10 November 2003, becoming their second single to reach #1 on the UK Singles Chart, with first week sales of 55,000.[2] The line "I'm so rushed off my feet, looking for Gordon Street" is a reference to the 1993 film Wayne's World 2. James Bourne said:[3] The song was nominated for the People's Choice Award at The 2004 Music Vision Awards.[4]

Music video

The music video features Busted playing at a wedding in which nearly all the guests are portrayed by the band members. Busted then go on to destroy the wedding, wrecking the cake and knocking over tables. A scene involving one character spanking another was edited out when the video was aired during the daytime. Before the song begins, a muzak version of Busted's first single "What I Go to School For" is heard. Willis, Bourne and Simpson portray Adam Ant, Michael Jackson and Boy George impersonators respectively. Harry Judd from the UK band McFly plays the drummer in the video.[5] The single was also promoted by appearances on Top of the Pops, Top of the Pops Saturday, cd:uk, Popworld, the Royal Variety Performance, and Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.[6]
