You just need five seconds of summer to have fun xD !


             Hey guys ! Have you ever heard about the crazy boys of 5SOS ?

        If you haven't, this is your oportunity to heard something about them. So ,let's start!

This band , originary from Australia  , plays pop-rock and pop-punk music . Their label is Capitol Records with which they are going to released their first album called " 5 Seconds Of Summer '(the name of the band) . And do you know something curious about their name?  The boys decided how to be named during a Maths' lesson( we are sure that they were paying attention to the teacher ) this is why the 5 is put as four vertical lines with another one that goes over them. 

Ella se ve tan perfecta - Fuera ahoraThey don't have a long career, but they can sing and play instruments quite well that is the reason why we like their music. It also conteins the most outlandish and crazy lyrics that usually hasn't got nothing in common with their videoclips. Anyway, this is one of the best bands that we have actually found and we wish you enjoy our last entry this year.

Their origins
Everything started at the beggining of 2011 , when a 14-years-old Luke Hemmings decided to post covers in his YouTube channel hemmo1996. he knew Michael and Calum because they all were studiying Year 9 at the same high-school but, in that moment, they weren't friend at all. Michael and Calum were best friends, and Luke and Calum liked each other, but they weren't friends because y Luke hated Michael y he used to think that he wasn't '' cool enough to be friends with Calum'' .
But, in Year 10, Michael y Luke started to talk and found out that they have similar musical taste and they became best friends and started to post covers together in YouTube. Nobody really asked Calum to join the band, but he says that he assumed he was in beacuse he was friends with Michael and Luke.
Their popularity started to grow really fast and they were offered to book a gig in the Annandale Hotel in Sydney. Obviously, they acepted right away, but then realized that they needed a drummer, so Michael inboxed Ashton in Facebook, and aking him to join them for the concert.
They say that the concert was completely horrible, but it felt right to be in stage together, so the band continuated with Ashton joining usually in rehersals.
At the end of 2013, the boys decicded to ask Ashton to join officially and 5 Seconds Of Summer was formed!
Little ago, a comic was made explaining how the band was formed and I think is funny so I put it in here.

Shorty Awards

This award consists in to reward those bands with a huge social media in those social networks like Twitter , Instagram , Tumbrl , Facebook and more else ; it is because they are a band really connected with their fans and they share playlists, tracks ...  They are also informating about what are they actually doing.  

Unfortunatly they didn't win this 6th edition , though they were finalists.  


The boys say that they were ingluenced originally by  Blink-182All Time LowGreen DayMayday Parade, Paramore,  Boys Like Girls,  Busted, Fall Out Boy  and Ed Sheeran
But lately, they have discovered new bands like Imagine Dragons or Artic Monkeys  that have also influenced their music.


Now, we would like you to see and hear some of their betters videoclips, una gran cantidad de videos (they are always filming themshelves), and some videos from their concerts that we have decided put here. Enjoy them :)

First of all ,these videos were recorded when the band wasn't created at all. These  are somes of their first covers:

Then , Out of My Limiti .

-  Try Hard
Like a lot of others songs, this songs used to be played only in concerts, but a year ago, they recorded the studio version and made a videoclip for it.

                                        - The Only Reason

- 18 (acoustic)

And here we've got the one that made them really popular and well-known  :
She Looks So Perfect . This is the craziest one!

Their last work, a videoclip of superheroes... Don't Stop 


These boys enjoy a lot making video diaries , during their concerts or just telling us how is their day by day. They also make some 'Behind the Cameras ( like the first one that belongs to the videoclip She Looks So Perfect) and they also like doing interviews.

-These are ' The Lost Tapes' of the videoclip of Don't Stop that is like and interview with them as superheroes. We don't have many things to said about it , except the fact that it is the funniest video of all, You Won't Stop laughing!!

- The next one is a link to a video from Youtube that was made while they were doing their Tour 5 Countries 5 Days , tasting traditional food from the countries that they visited(France, Spain, Sweden, Germany and Italy )
# 5Countries5Days Food Challenge

"Nearly two years ago on December 3, 2011, we met and formed five seconds Summer. We've been working on some EPIC stuff for # 5SOSBDAY while we've been in LA and decided to make a couple of videos on each of us and it feels like to be in a band together! "

# 5SOSBDAY 2013


And to finish this section we are going to put two songs sung in their concerts .The first one is Voodoo Doll , and the second song is Good Girls Are Bad Girls (That Haven't Been Caught ) . Then, the next link is from a concert in which they sang Amnesia:



You will know that in every World  Cup there is a song of a singer or a band that is associated with it. This year , in the World Cup 2014 there have been many  singers like Shakira or Pitbull that have written songs specially to this event.


Yes, you have guessed it!

5SOS has prepared a featuring with the DJ Scott Mills ( and in complicity with BBC Radio )  in which they wear the football equipment of  Brazil and at the beginning of the video , 1D appeared.
This song has been really well-welcomed , so some people ( specially those directioners)  are  asking to change the actual song (one by Pitbull ) 

We think that this song won’t look the best , but it’s not the ones that you are always tired of hear for this event ( you know, those horrible ones of reggaeton or the ones in which the girls appeared with few clothes ) so , it is a cool pop-punk song and you know… SOMETIMES IS GOOD TO CHANGE  :)

And to end this section, here it is the song that we were talking about. We wish you like it  and that you comment if you think it is a good idea to put it as the World Cup 2014’s song and why. We will be waiting for you opinions !!
