Boy bands were a sensation during an era when men were looked at as legends of rock and punk music. For young boys to come forward with a music offering was a rare idea that succeeded with the public. Soon, there was no stopping to the boys forming bands and creating a teenage sensation among the young people of the 90s. Today, the idea of having a boy band or following one is done to death. There are so many boy bands that no one even pays attention to them anymore unless for some reason they can shine above the others in the industry. The competition is brutal and not every band is as lucky as the backstreet boys or NSync anymore. 5 Seconds of Summer or better known as 5SOS is a band that has managed to grab the spotlight and all in just five years since their launch into the international music scene. Sounds very similar to one of the greats in boy bands, doesn’t it? Yeah, NSync was one one those bands that had the same effect on the public and today, 5SOS is the one taking front and centre stage.
The Latest and Greatest of 5SOS
Right from the get-go, this band has been destined for greatness. Their first album entitled She Looks so Perfect was a pop sensation and pushed the band forward to a status of almost close to being an icon in a short span. Their latest release entitled ‘Easier’ has made the band evolve in such a way that their music and their personas are almost unbelievably different.
What started as a boy band with ruckus boys getting together to jam in impromptu sessions, today is rock ready boys who are mature and deliver pop acts that are succeeding on the charts all over Australia and the world. Over the last few years, the band has pretty much crushed every other band in their way and rushed or have been pushed to the top. They have taken over the success of big-time boy bands like One Direction too who have held the throne of success for so long. Today, they are the greatest and the biggest boy bands in the world.
Breaking the Mould
When the boy band made their debut in 2014, little did they expect to be welcomed by open arms by the fans who were used to the likes of One Direction or Maroon Five. The greatest thing about this band is that they did not stick to the protocol of how things are done or the right way to move to the part – something that all the bands did to rise to fame. They shattered the rules and changed their appearances to suit their rise to fame, and that’s the most important which stuck with the audience. They went from wearing plain flannelle jackets to leather ones and made sure their music stood out too. Currently, their songs are at the top of the charts in Australia and climbing to fame around the world as well. They have managed to already get to the Top 50 in the US. Their album has been produced by the producer of the popular band Good Charlotte and was one of the reasons for their rise to fame almost instantly.
