And, you can’t claim that you don’t know a thing about the musical accomplishments of the 5 Seconds of Summer band.

For the sake of those who for some reason or another, are yet to gain awareness of the tuneful and lyrical exploits of 5SOS and those who have somehow, come to believe that the band is just an extended branch of the pop boy band – One Direction, the 5SOS group is an Australian pop rock band. The four-member musical group hails from Sydney, the capital of Australia’s east coast state, New South Wales.
