MCFLY PIONEERS. ‘mcfly pioneers,’ is a nickname given to the fans of McFly. For example Justin Bieber has his ‘belibers,’ and Lady Gaga has her “little monsters.’ It gives them a sense of belonging, when they know there are other people out there who can relate to McFly like they do and they really enjoy the music and members of the band. It also creates a close personal relationship with the band and the fans and with constant updates and photos on the pioneers page they feel like they have a good connection with McFly.
