Boy bands are apparently still a thing, and Australian group 5 Seconds of Summer are riding that wave all the way to number one. They burst onto the scene with “She Looks So Perfect,” which only peaked at no. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100, yet found themselves at number one on the Billboard 200 this week with 259,000 copies.
They released a music video for their latest single, “Amnesia,” today which looks like a rip-off of an old school Avril Lavigne video with a little Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop.” That, and the concept literally has nothing to do with the song. They could have filmed this and inserted any of their songs into it and uploaded it to Vevo. Yet, they still remain a pop force to be reckoned with.
Now 5SOS just needs to write One Direction a hand-written thank you note for paving the way and call it a day.
