The whole 5SOS Fam are weeping like the proud mamas they are!!
Three years ago today (December 3rd) marks the day that daddy Ashton joined the band completing the 5SOS trifecta. *I’m not crying…it’s just raining on my face*
In the space of three short years the Aussies have gone from jamming in a garage to headlining venues worldwide.
2014 has been extra special for the boys as they have finally been able to release their long awaited self titled debut album, had worldwide chart success, released a book, won countless awards and before the year is out they will have released their live album LIVESOS eek!!!!
To mark the occasion 5SOS have gotten all nostalgic on us, treating us to a youtube mixtape from the foetus (and might I add fringe tastic) 5SOS to bonfided rock stars….seriously fangirl overload.

Happy birthday 5 Seconds of Summer, it’s only just the beginning.
After their exhilarating performances at the AMAS and the ARIAS earlier this month, 5 Seconds of Summer are set to rock your socks off at the People Magazine Awards.
The star studded event has been billed as
“a celebration and recognition of the year’s most influential and talked-about people in pop culture, celebrity and Hollywood”.
The awards are set to take place on December 18 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
5SOS are up for Favourite Breakout Artist so get voting at http://vote.peopleschoice.com/#!/home/all/59/3
Breathe….breathe….like seriously do you need a paper bag or something.
5SOS have been chatting to Sydney Morning Herald about which band member will be the first to go solo but don’t worry they were only joking around – nothing can tear this epic bromance apart.
Luke kidded that Calum would be the first member of the band to pursue a solo career if the intense pressure of 5SOS became to hard to handle. He said:
“Calum with an R&B record, you heard it here first!”
Luke you can’t do that to us!!! We may be young but are mental faculties aren’t equipped to deal with that sort of “humour”.
Seriously when will it be my day!!!!
According to the adorable Aussies the most romantic member of 5SOS is…………………………….Michael *sorry I just wanted to drag it out like they do on reality TV*
Apparently our favourite punk rock kitten falls in love at least once day…I guess 24 hours was just not enough for Abigail Breslin.
Yup we are talking about that boy band tag again.
Luke told Sydney Morning Herald that he still feels uncomfortable being referred to as a boyband because he thinks it tarnishes the 5SOS name:
“It makes us seem a bit fake. Starting in a garage and writing our own songs and playing them in pubs to 10 people; I don’t think [being called a boy band] does us justice as a band.”
The word boy band conjures up the image of a manufactured group who don’t necessarily have that much creative control over their music, there is nothing wrong with boybands (trust me I have listened to more Busted songs than I would ever care to admit to!!!) but it’s not the right fit for 5SOS.
It’s not fair to lumber 5SOS with boy bands just because they have happened to support One Direction on tour and well they are boys in a band.
The Kerrang Award winners make music with more of a rock edge remiscent of All Time Low, You Me At Six and Sum 41…not one of them has ever been called a boy band.
Mikey added that he was also keen to be defined as a rock band:
“There’s nothing we would love more; for rock music to be on the radio, in the top 40 and stuff. We started the band because of bands like Blink-182, Green Day, All Time Low, stuff like that. We’re on the same side as all other people in rock music.”
So ladies and gentlemen the morale of that story was DON’T call 5 Seconds of Summer a boy band!!!
Clearly Abigail Breslin’s stalker anthem hasn’t frightened Michael Clifford off dating for life (hooray!!!) as he has been flirting with ultimate girl crush Taylor Swift.
It all started off quite innocently with Michael tweeting his adoration for Tay’s chart smash “Shake It Off”;
Taylor then responded with;
Damn that girl has some impeccable etiquette skills.
Mikey clearly bursting with excitement (wow…that sounds dirty) tweeted:
This sent Taylor into a twitter emoji frenzy normally reserved for 15 year old girls:
And for the grand finale of ‘Michael Gordon Clifford ‘s guide to courting’ he came back with:
Guys before you start the epic romance of Cliffty you might want to run it past a certain one directioner.
The 5SOS cuties (who are still soldiering on without Ashton) have been discussing “You Suck” while sitting down with Shazam in Australia.
Presenter Ash London echoed the feelings of the entire 5SOS Fam when she went into protective lioness mode even threatening to jump on a plane to get even with Abigail Breslin (seriously Ash you are like my spirit animal).
However unlike the rest of us, the boys remained totally chilled with Luke even chiming in that he co-wrote the song. Tut tut Luke we know you didn’t write the track, it’s clearly originated from a twelve year old girl’s journal.
Michael did have just one question for Abigail though, channelling Mariah Carey, he sang:
“Why are you so obsessed with me?”
Ummm Mikey I could totally give you like 101 reasons why…and that’s just off the top of my head.
