Top Ten Reasons Why 5 Seconds of Summer Is Better Than One DirectionMusicislife
The Top Ten
I stan 5SOS but both bands are famous for their talent AND looks. 1D stans always remind us they made 5SOS famous. YES WE KNOW OKAY! But the fact that 1D thought 5SOS were good enough to tour with them shows that they're good musicians. 1D and 5SOS both write their own songs and play instruments. I know that 5SOS write more and play instruments more than 1D but that doesn't matter. Both of their music is still amazing. 'All 5SOS/1D songs are about girls'. OTHER ARTISTS SING ABOUT GIRLS/BOYS AS WELL. Louis has amazing vocals just because he's not the best in the band it doesn't mean he's bad at singing. Yes I do appreciate the looks of 5SOS but the reason I'm here is because of 1D. I used to stan 1D but then found out about 5SOS and fell in love with their music. I respect 1D and directioners. People have different opinions. Just because someone doesn't have the same opinion as you it doesn't mean their wrong. People have different opinions, deal with it.
5sos has at least some talent. They may sound like a generic boy band in my opinion, but at least they actually make music. Their fans appreciate them for that, not only for looks. If they happen to have bad songs, at least they don't get as much attention as 1D. I don't like the band, and I don't hate 5sos. At least they're actually a band.
Also people support 1d because of their music not their looks. Their looks don't make their music good. Looks are just a bonus which come with 1d
That's not true. 5SOS is a group that has attractive guys and yes, they might focus more on music rather than their appearance but that doesn't change the fact that all four guys are very good looking and a lot of girls in the 5SOS fam like them because of the way they look.V 15 Comments
Oh one direction only has more hits because they are more famous not because they are better
I disagree strongly. But there is not correct answer because this is an opinion
5SOS have some songs with meaning like Broken Home while One Direction have more fun upbeat tracks.
Their songs are better because they are pop punkV 8 Comments
I agree with this list! It's so accurate and well done. And the items on here are all true. - cosmo
IT'S CALLED English LOVE AFFAIR. I'm going to assume Moments has a meaning, but 5sos's song DEFINITELY does too! It is about a guy getting sucked into a one night stand but after he moves on with his life, he can't forget what happened.
Yep, at least the songs have meanings. 1D write about 'stealing/stolen girls' lol
5SOS -Broken Home, The Girl Who Cried Wolf, Jet Black Heart and Social Casualty etc are all songs with meaning but on the other hand we have Hey Everybody!, Don't stop, English love affair etc that are just fun songs without any meaning whatsoever, only a good beat.
One Direction - Perfect, If I Could Fly, History, Don't forget where you belong etc are all song with meaning but they also have fun songs with no meaning like What makes you beautiful, One thing etc
I'm pretty sure it's a tie on this one (same goes with other groups as well)
And they are all musical virtuosos. - gemcloben
Boy bands are known for not playing instruments, it's not all about the instruments. I bet half of the artists don't play them - Dragmedown
Yeah the one d boys only play the kazoo
You can't tell if they play or not instruments because they were formed in a reality as a boyband not as a band and not playing them at the shows is different to not knowing how to play
When one is sick the others can fill inV 5 Comments
Yes exactly and most of their new songs are about deep, emotional things not just girls. Don't judge them because I bet you haven't listened to Invisible, Broken Home or She's Kinda Hot.
One direction do write their songs they may get ideas from other people such as ed sheeran but that doesn't mean that the copy their songs etc.. They write their songs and SING them and get awards for it
That's important for an artist because you can relate to them a lot more because they wrote what they are singing.V 4 Comments
Get your facts straight, they don't use auto tune they have said it doesn't work well with their. At least I don't say 5sos uses auto tune when I don't actually know.
They don't use autotune, plus 5SOS at their first album used a lot of it because they wanted to sound "more rocky"
One direction don't use autotune at their concerts and their voice at concerts are angelic
Please, anyone who has ever heard 1D and 5sos concert will say THAT 1D IS BETTER THAN 5SOS. actually I like 5sos but read your opinion make me HATE them...V 5 Comments
They had help from One Direction haha
They started by singing song on YouTube after they plays in the little concert hall after 4 years he become too the city of Australia to the madison square garden!
This is somewhat of a lie, because they did get famous by touring with One Direction...
EXACTLY! 5 seconds of summer wouldn't be half as famous if they didn't tour with one direction. - Dragmedown
Please, Louis and Niall have a big role in their career,, just use your brain pleaseV 4 Comments
If you're older doesn't that mean you have more experience? Also age doesn't even matter like seriously
I bet you're like twelve because this top is so incoherent
I think age only applies to metal bands.
That's a stupid reason to be honestV 4 Comments
This is true (and thank Arceus he left. We just have to wait for the other four to leave. ) but Five Seconds Of Summer is basically One Direction 2.0. Another generic boy band. - RiverClanRocks
I'm really like one direction as fours guys, but I also liked them as five. But zayn made made of his fans (including me) feel heart broken
Zayn wasn't the only talented member of One Direction. Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam all have incredible voices.
Zayn was the glue to the bandV 5 Comments
So that automatically makes them better musicians? Because I thought this was a music related list.V 2 Comments
That's the most stupid thing I've ever read in my life.V 2 Comments
Their new album "Sounds good feels good" is about real issues... Like parents quarrel, depression, do not now who you are.. And looking for yourself...V 1 Comment
RUDE?!? ONE DIRECTION?!? You MUST be stupid! They have interviews all day and have to always answer questions they don't want to answer but they do anyway because they are nice.
This list is desperate. One of the best things about One Direction is that they are genuinely nice kids. - WonkeyDude98
One Direction aren't rude, they are cool guys.V 1 Comment
One direction sings better than 5sos
What is this list anymore I love both bands but this is getting dumb
Right, they can't sing...all this year I buy their album just to see the cover
You are idiotV 3 Comments
Heartbreak girl, kiss me kiss me, what I like about you, good girls, she looks so perfect; you are telling me 5sos don't? - gemcloben
PEOPLE NEED TO LISTEN TO 5SOS BEFORE JUDGING. What is Rejects about? There are other songs that sound like they're about a person, but they aren't talking about a girl all the time!
BROKEN HOME, INVISIBLE, SHE'S KINDA HOT, REJECTS, SOCIAL CASUALTY 1D don't even have inspirational or motivational songs! I think they have like 1 called Stand up but barely, because near the end it always comes back to some girl
This is the stupidest list I have ever seenV 10 Comments
To be honest these reasons are stupid -_- they make no senseV 2 Comments
