Fightstar is a rock/post-hardcore band from the UK. In early January 2005, Charlie Simpson left the highly successful British guitar pop trio Busted, citing his marked preference for heavier guitar rock over the music he had produced with Busted and his intention to carry on carving out a musical career, in a different genre, with his band Fightstar. Fightstar's debut EP, "They Liked You Better When You Were Dead", was released on February 28, 2005, following a rapid promotional tour of the United Kingdom.
