Politicians should stop trying to be "cool" and get on with running the country, say chart toppers Girls Aloud.
The band said they never got asked about their political views
It should be left to bands to get teenagers talking about politics by going into schools and "spreading the word", they told the New Statesman.
The usual late night political debates and programmes were dull, they said.
"It's boring. No 18-year-old wants to watch Gordon Brown doing his whole speech - turn it over!," said band member Nicola Roberts.
They also suggested political parties set out what they stand for in bullet-points in advertisements during breaks in ITV1's Coronation Street.
But while standard politics was a turn-off for youngsters, it was a mistake for politicians to try to be too trendy, the band said.
Conservative leader David Cameron's comments that of all the band members he "fancied" Ms Cole the most, appears to have left her unimpressed.
"He was just trying to be cool. I bet he couldn't name a single song of ours. Do I fancy him? No! Politicians should stop trying to be cool and get on with running the country."
One of the band thought they had met Chancellor Gordon Brown - but the others assured her it was actually Home Secretary John Reid who had been pictured with them at an awards ceremony.
Girls Aloud, who have had 13 top 10 hits since winning TV talent contest Pop Stars: The Rivals in 2002, complained that they never got asked about their political views.
Politics did not feature in "normal magazines and newspapers" and it needed to be more "user friendly," they told the New Statesman.
For the record, they are anti-war, pro-grammar school and support high taxation - as long as they could see where the money was going.
"You'd happily pay taxes if you thought: 'I'm paying them so a fireman or a nurse can have a decent wage'," Kimberley Walsh told the magazine.
Band-mate Nadine Coyle did not think much of Labour's record on the NHS.
"They say they're going to do all this stuff for the NHS but it goes on paper-pushers," she said.
"The money's not actually being spent where it's needed."
The band said, as a result, the next generation were put off applying for jobs like nursing - and were much more interested in the glamorous lifestyles of footballers' wives.
Girls Aloud, who themselves relied on the public vote - by way of reality TV - for their success, are not the first act to sound off about politics.
Bob Geldof's years of campaigning for Africa have made him arguably the most vocal, but Sting, U2 frontman Bono and George Michael have not been afraid to wade into the world of politics.
Geri Halliwell - aka Ginger Spice - told the Spectator in 1996 that "We Spices are true Thatcherites. Thatcher was the first Spice Girl. For now, we're desperately worried about the slide to a single currency."
