The Wanted Mobbed In Hollywood By Female Fans As They Compete For Hottest Boy Band Crown (PHOTOS)

The Wanted are hot on the heels of One Direction, and seem to vying for the top spot in America with their singing rivals.

Leaving their hotel to pay a visit to Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood the boys were stopped by screaming fans wanting a piece of the action.

The British band, consisting of Max, Siva, Jay, Nathan and Tom, have just previewed their new single We Own The Night, and have had amazing feedback from fans describing it as ‘Perfect.’

The song, released on August 11 is taken from their new album Word Of Mouth, which will be out September 16.

Max even tweeted that it was his favourite song that the band had produced so far.

Never ones to shy away from controversy, The Wanted have a high profile feud with fellow Brits One Direction.

Max even told The New York Daily Times that the two boy bands should take their argument into the ring, “We would like a boxing match- them against us. It would be brilliant for TV and I don’t have a problem with it at all.

“They’ve got 12 million followers on Twitter and I get that they have an army of kids, but instead of doing that if they have got an issue, why don’t we actually do something financially — like make some money for a charity, and blow off some steam in a boxing ring.”

Hmmm not sure Simon Cowell will quite go for that!
