They don’t look that bad. – I’m very happy. – They remind me of One Direction. I do have to admit,
One Direction is more of a boy band, and they’re more of an actual band. (children) Question time! – (Finebros) So do you know this band?
– No. – 5 Seconds of Summer? – This is 5 Seconds of Summer. – My favorite band of all time.
I don’t care about any other band. – They’re Australian and they consist
of Luke Hemmings, Ashton Irwin, Calum Hood,
and Michael Clifford. – (Finebros) So this is 5 Seconds of Summer. – Oh, yeah! – (Finebros) Sometimes called “5SOS”. – Oh, that’s who that is! I thought that was two separate people. – When I first heard about them,
I thought it was 5 S-O-S, but then my friend who likes them, she’s like, “Elle, how dare you say that! It’s 5SOS!” – (Finebros) So a lot of people call
5 Seconds of Summer a boy band. – They technically are. – (Finebros) The band, though, does
not like to be called a boy band. Why do you think they
don’t like to be called that? – That’s weird. I don’t know why
they don’t wanna be called a boy band because they’re all boys
and they made a band! – For guys, sometimes “boy band”
has a bad connotation. – One Direction gets called a boy band. Not all people like One Direction, so maybe they think people don’t like them, even though we all know girls do. – When you think of a boy band, I don’t know, you don’t necessarily think
of their style of music. You think of, I don’t know,
The Beach Boys or something. (laughs) But 5SOS isn’t The Beach Boys. They’re, like, awesome. – (Finebros) The band has said
that they are a rock band. What do you think?
Rock band or boy band? – Rock band. – Boy band. – I think they’re a rock band. – They’re a boy band. – Boy band. – Boy band. – Rock band. 100%. – I’m gonna say rock band. – They are a boy band. – It’s a rock band. – It’s a mix inbetween both. – Rock band. I mean, I’ll stand by their side. – (Finebros) So this is a very
popular group with younger people, but that first video had
people taking all their clothes off. Is that appropriate for a band
with a younger audience to show in their video?
– No. – No, it’s not. – They know they have a younger audience, but they won’t give them a bad influence. – It’s just a video.
That’s all it is. There’s nothing bad about it. – It’s not necessarily, like,
an insanely bad thing. Everything’s somewhat sexualized,
everything that’s popular. – The song’s called “She Looks so Perfect”, and then in the music video
it’s people taking off their clothes and it’s people of all shapes and sizes. It’s not like it’s Kate Upton
every single time. – Already, that song is not necessarily
directed towards younger kids. They have a right to do what they want. – (Finebros) So now we have
some lyrics for you to read from the second song.
– Yeah. – Okay. – “Forget what you thought… – ..’cause good girls are bad girls
that haven’t been caught.” – Good lyrics. – They do bad stuff, but people don’t know. – Everyone, deep down inside, is a bad girl. I don’t think that they wrote
this meaning to have any type of misogynistic undertones. – They probably don’t know
the lyrics, honestly. They’re just listening to the song
and looking at the people in the band. – (Finebros) So here’s some more lyrics. – “I swear she lives in the library… – ..but if you look,
then you won’t find her there. – ‘Cause in the back of the room
where nobody looks… – ..she’ll be with her boyfriend. She’s not reading books.” Oh… did not know. (silence) – I don’t get that. Let me read this again. Oh my gosh. I have to say it fast.
Okay, one, two… they’re kissing! – (Finebros) So did you know
that these types of lyrics were in 5SOS? – Well, I would sing along,
but I wouldn’t really actually read them. – You don’t really listen to the lyrics. We just care about the beat. – They sell it as a kid thing. They make them all fun and stuff, but they’re not really
that appropriate for kids. – “She Looks so Perfect” is a prime example. When I actually really
listened to the lyrics, I was like, “If my mom finds this,
she’ll freak out.” Well, I mean, she loves the song, but that’s ’cause it was
the radio Disney version. – I don’t want to say that,
“Oh, this is so bad! You shouldn’t be singing
about this at all!” But then, at the same time,
it’s like… you can sing what you want to sing about. (laughs) I’m stuck in the middle. – (Finebros) So back to just the band, why do you think they’ve
had so much success? What makes them so popular? – ‘Cause a lot of teenagers like it. – ‘Cause lots of people like rock. – One Direction pretty much
made them famous. They’re the ones who brought
them on tour and were like, “Hey, you know, listen to them!
They’re really good.” – I’m guessing most girls don’t even listen
to them for their music, just for the people. – They’re good looking. Plus, that they’re Australian.
I mean, Australia’s pretty cool. – It’s like YouTubers,
like Joe Sugg and Marcus Butler, if they have an accent, then… yes. – No offense, but I think it’s the looks. I think it’s the looks. I don’t think they’re cute or anything
’cause I don’t like boys. Boys are yucky!
I will never date boys. Maybe until, like, I’m 25. – (Finebros) So last question,
if 5 Seconds of Summer watches this episode,
what would you say to them? – Make it more appropriate for kids! – Ashton Irwin, marry me. – I love your songs.
Just have a happy life. – Hi, you guys are amazing. You guys are a rock band,
not a boy band, and… (giggles)
and I love you guys. You’re amazing. – Thanks so much for watching

  1. 5sos is by definition a boyband
    boy band
    a pop group composed of attractive young men whose music and image are designed to appeal primarily to a young teenage audience.

  2. they dont like being called a boy band because boy bands are more for girls and they want their music to be for boys and girls not just girls

  3. It's inappropriate for kids bcs their not a kids band. Oh and I think you want to read American love affairs lyrics kids JUST SAYING

  4. Everybody says that we only like boy bands for their looks and I'm just stood there like, yeah cause I bought their album to listen to their face!!🙄😠

  5. The song is called he looks so perfect therefore the video makes sense became it shows that everyone is perfect in their own way

  6. 5sos doesn't have to make their music or videos more appropriate. Their music and videos are directed at teenagers. If you listen to their new album they're defiantly singing about teenage problems.

  7. We do not just love them for their looks! And their music isn't inappropriate, especially since it's aimed at 18+ year olds

  9. 'What is the actual point of this?' It's showing how everyone is perfect to that certain someone, everyone is a different shape, it's basically saying, 'You look perfect to somebody, even if you don't think it'

  10. Just saying I know there kids and they didn't know who they are BUT THEY ARE NOT A BOY BAND EVEN THO THEY ARE BOYS IN A BAND LIKE I KNOW THAT DOESNT MAKE SENSE BUT TRUST ME! 😂😂
