Transcript of 5SOS
Bio! (Part 1)
5 Seconds of Summer are a "punk rock" band from Australia. They formed back in High School where Luke, Michael, and Calum were all mates. After a year or so they met up with a mutual friend, Ashton, and the band was complete. 5SOS for short gained a small bit of success after posting covers of famous songs under the username "hemmo1996" which originally belonged to Luke.
Unlike those before them, 5SOS do not have fans. They prefer to call them the "5SOSFam" because they are all close. This is comforting because it connects them to their roots when they had only a couple thousand fans and now, millions.
"I actually don’t like calling you guys fans because you’re like the family I never had" -Mikey
