Information of The Ordinary Boys

:For the Morrissey song, see The Ordinary Boys (song). The Ordinary Boys were an English indie rock band from Worthing, originally named Next in Line. They were influenced by mod revival and Britpop music, as well as the bands Madness, The Specials and The Smiths/Morrissey. Their name derives from a Morrissey song, The Ordinary Boys. Despite their limited success on the British charts, their popularity grew, particularly due to media coverage that the lead singer, Samuel Preston, received when participating in Celebrity Big Brother UK in January 2006. Following that appearance, sales of the band's albums soared and the "Boys Will Be Boys" single moved from #33 to #3 in four weeks. Fans of the band are nicknamed "The Ordinary Army". Their most high-profile single release was "Boys Will Be Boys" - which was re-released after Preston's appearance on Celebrity Big Brother. Notable songs include "Maybe Someday", "Talk Talk Talk", and "Seaside" from their debut album; "Boys Will Be Boys" from their second album; and "Over the Counter Culture", which was featured in the soundtrack for Burnout 3: Takedown. Their single "Lonely at the Top" marks a change of sound, with more of a pop feel to it; featuring synthesisers and samples. Yahoo! UK revealed that The Ordinary Boys was the fourth most searched for keyword of 2006 in their annual top ten search results. The song "Boys Will Be Boys" featured in the fifth Harry Potter movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The band was also referenced in episode five of series two of The IT Crowd. In early 2008, lead singer Preston confirmed the band's end through the official Ordinary Boys website, and announced he is currently in the process of writing new material for a solo album.
