Best 5 Seconds of Summer Songs

Kyzent

The Top Ten

1 Amnesia

This song is so beautiful. Always makes me tear up. It's so amazing. The guitar is heart breaking and their voices are touching. I love it so much. It's easily their most tear-jerking song ever.

NO IT SUCKS

Amnesia probably contains the most searing lyrics on the album. It demonstrates 5SOS' versatility. It blends well with listeners of any age, relating with teenagers who might be fresh out of a relationship, as well as older listeners, by taking them back to memories of heartache of dissolving high school romance. Instruments are noticeably not as prominent in this song as others, with the drums and guitars and anything practically non-existent besides the synthesizer, but Amnesia provides a refreshing change. The vocal performance makes up for it however, with true, raw heartbreak evident in their singing, proving them to be as reliable sources as anyone, seeing as they are young men who have probably been through problems like these before in their lives. The vocals are smooth and clear, but still with some raw and gritty emotional spots where their voice cracks.

This song I like and why? Because these boys sing it and joel and benji madden wrote it, I watched the video clip and listen to the sound track they are an amazing band. To me 5 seconds of summer are number one! Always!

2 She Looks So Perfect

When it comes to music, I find it ridiculous that anyone would care whether a song is "mainstream" or not. I judge the song on whether I like it or not, and if it becomes popular or mainstream, then so be it. That shouldn't make a difference in the whole picture. You can like or dislike this song, but I love it for it's catchy beat and cuteness. I've heard a lot of people say there's not as much depth in the lyrics, but personally, I love the lyrics,
"Let's get out, let's get out
'Cause this deadbeat town's only here just to keep us down
While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking
If I showed up with a plane ticket
And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it
Would you wanna run away too? "
I can't explain it but that part gives me the feelings.

Honestly guys? This is the most normal-mainstream-average song by 5sos! It's so well known I guess people who aren't really fans would choose it... makes sense...

It's like a musical anthem to me. The best song of this period. The lyrics are the best and very catchy and very attractive. I've also sung a cover of this song... I just love this song.

I really love this song and 5sos too. And the quote in it "If you don't swim you drown but don't move honey" is awesome Luke and Michael are so good and Ash and Calum are also good keep on going 5sos... and now the news of derp con with 5sos is also coming in LA...

3 Jet Black Heart

This is an amazing song that I think many can relate to. It may not seem like much at first, but when you really listen to the lyrics, you can find a deeper meaning to it. I love this song and I would totally recommend it to anyone. If you really listen to it, it will get to you.

Jet Black Heart is a tear-jerking song that reveals their struggles, and their problems. It is an anthem for anyone who suffers from depression, anxiety or any mental illness... Especially when that ruins a relationship. The song starts off very sad... But by the end, it gives us a reason to "start again" it gives us hope and shows us that we aren't alone in this struggle.

Jet Black Heart is instrumentally and lyrically beautiful. It paves a pathway to 5 seconds of summer's more maturer sound, and reminds you that a pop-punk ballad can still be effectively emotional and heartfelt. Jet Black Heart diverges a bit from the other, I guess, more predictable songs such as Invisible. It keeps the tempo upbeat, but mellower and emotional. They're not writing/singing pre-produced cheesy love songs. They write straight from the heart, and manage to mix their experiences in. Jet Black Heart re-introduces mid '00s pop punk sounds into a new generation where it has long disappeared, being replaced by more generic electronic pop music. The instrumentation and production blends well with the vocals. Had this be the early 2000's, it'd be guaranteed that JBH would earn a top spot on alternative rock radio stations. It's sad to think that now, songs and sound like this are ignored, and get lost amidst of all the mainstream, generic and repetitive pop music. Jet Black ...more

This was a really hard decision because, lets be honest here, 5SOS has plenty of amazing songs. And while Amnesia, Heartbreak Girl, Airplanes, Beside You, She Looks So Perfect, etc. are among my very favorites, I don't know. Jet Black Heart just gets to me. Being a nerdy girl whose love life revolves around books and T.V. shows, I don't usually personally relate to a lot of love songs (although I do relate them to my ships (no, I don't mean actual boats)), but this one goes deeper than that. Mix the meaningfulness with an overall beautiful song and well, it's won me over.

4 Good Girls

Please don't start with me if you think this song is bad

#5? This song deserves a place in top 3. It's just Perfect! I've been listening to them since last two weeks and I can't stop listening to this song over and over again!

This song is by far the best on the album, maybe the best by them. The lyrics are so catchy and genius really. I've been listening to these boys for almost 2 years and this has been my favorite song since it came out.

It's definitely their best song! And coming from a Christian school, this describes almost every girl there

5 She's Kinda Hot

This song is so original, and has a great sound! They brought back a older sounding rock, and I'm in love! The vocals are great and the lyrics are catchy!

A catchy original guitar rift, a great pop rock vibe, fun lyrics with a good message, and a whole band with some serious pipes like this song is one of the best 5sos can offer at the moment

Great lyrics that they wrote themselves. A rocky, punky feeling to it that really shows that they aren't a bubble gum boy band.

It has a fantastic pop punk vibe and the way the song is put together is so much fun as opposed to verse chorus verse chorus etc.

6 Beside You

I love the beat at the beginning. It's insanely creative and original. I love the feel of it. It feels very genuine and heartfelt. I love Jetblack heart. It is a beautiful, emotional and deep song but I prefer this one a bit more because of the beat and how vulnerable they sounded.

Great beat, deep meaning

This song is so beautiful. A lot of people could relate to this song for so many different reasons, which I love. The words to this song along with the melody are just perfect. This song should by #1 for tons of reasons.

I really can't even explain how good this song is. Every time I heard the intro I get emotional. The lyrics is so honest and the bass and drums are just perfection. I can't believe that the guys wrote this song long ago because it's my absolute favourite, and have been for at least 2 years.

7 Heartbreak Girl

Awesome song that sparked my interest in 5sos

The lyrics are something most people can relate to,

Back when I was rejected by my crush, I was always hoping that some guy would sing this to me. Even though I'm dating now, I still love this song.

Heartbreak girl is such an amazing song I love this band everyone I know listens to them and loves them

8 Heartache On the Big Screen

The lyrics are quite poetic in its way, with a clever metaphor of love and relationships. The metaphor compares dating and relationships with movies and television. It shows heartbreak, true love and a relationship gone wrong through the lyrics describing a scene flubbed up in the acting world.

GO TO PHILIPPINES FOOLS!

I love it because it not only has an amazing beat and sounds wonderful but the lyrics tell a story with creates amazing imagery

5sos aren't really ones for particularly poetic lyrics, but I love the lyrics in this, along with the classic catchy hooks that 5sos always deliver without fail.

9 Don't Stop

Love this song, it's ridiculously catchy! Also love how the video doesn't really relate much to the song! It's super weird but cute and that's our boys!

Love this song, love there music it's amazing even the music video super heros keep up the good work!

Yes, we all love it when the boys rock it out, but I liked how they slowed it down a bit!

The song is different from the video but both are just awesome! Love you 5sos

10 Wrapped Around Your Finger

Wrapped Around Your Finger is all around beautiful, vocally, instrumentals, and lyrically. While somewhat repetitive, the song is truly beautiful, slow and soft but still quite rocky. The hook is well written, pulling you in. The chorus is drawn out and lovely, with and equally as beautiful and strong guitar solo amidst the singing. The harmonies are beautiful, voices a topping each other with great balance. The songs outputs a story of young love, complete with the loving adventures and rendezvous.

This song is so perfect but so underrated. It deserves to be at least in the top 10. This song makes me an emotional wreck.

WHAT! How is this marked so low? I think this is one of 5sos' best songs, and it Michael's favorite as well. I think this song has a lot of meaning to it.

Undoubtedly my favorite 5SOS song of them all, I love the melancholic vibe it has, the guitar solo is really catchy, Luke and Michael's vocals are beautiful on this track and the lyrics get me every time. It's just so underrated, I just wish WAYF would be better known. Even some 5SOS fans don't know the existence of this song, that's a pity. - Noctalli

The Contenders

11 18

It’s just fantastic

This song is amazing but it's a shame they can't play it now because Luke is 19. Oh the tears! A great and funny song which should be appreciated a little more.

I love Ashton he's my favourite I love them all there music is awesome hope they would by like this forever forever ever ever ever and ever!

I love this song so much! It's catchy and just makes me wish the boys were all 18 again. It's amazing, why its number nine? Don't know

12 What I Like About You

I feel like this song really doesn't get enough credit, I know 5sos didn't write it, but they're voices work really well with it and it fits in with their style beautifully. It's a great old classic that they revamped and made their own.

They play this song for ne every time I go to the local skating rink. All the younger kids know to get off the floor and its all the fast skaters while this is on.

I've started liking this band because of this song...

This song is amazing. When it came out I must've listened to it on repeat for over 6 hours.

13 Long Way Home

This song is amazing! I love the lyrics, they are deep and catchy. This song is the best. Love it

LOVE the lyrics and tempo of the song (beginning kinda reminds me of blink-182's "i miss you", and its cool because they're on of the band's biggest inspirations)

This song is so perfect every time I listen to it I want to dance and to smile and to cry at the same time. And also I love 5sos

This song should definitely be in the top 3. absoultely love everything about this song! Its catchy, has a nice beat, the vocals are amazing and it has great lyrics as well. if anyone who has never listened to 5sos asked me to recommend a song, I'd choose this one.

14 Disconnected

Disconnected basically shows 5SOS' frustration with the high-tech world, and telling users to take a break for a while. Countless conversations and relationships are interrupted, and time is wasted through technology. It's telling you to experience life in the present, not through any screen.

This song is just so beautiful and is quite different from all of their other songs, so it's very unique and Calum's voice in this oH My God.

This should be at the top. The boys made numerous attempts at telling fans to put down their phones at concerts, and to just generally leave them at home. They want fans to enjoy the moment and that's why this song is special to hem too

This song should be WAY up at the top. It's lyrically unlike any other song they've made, and is one of the few songs that you don't get bored of when you listen over and over. The guitar sounds great too.

15 If You Don't Know

The best song they've ever made. The lyrics to this song is genius and it really shows how great their voices and ability to made great songs are. Should be number one.

This song is by far top 3. I love all of their songs but I could listen to this all day. the lyrics are beautiful and calum in the middle verse is amazing.

This song is so heartfelt, and I bet we can all agree that Cal-pal has a perfect solo in this song. Even though not many fans know this song, those who do love it!

One of their best songs. Everything about this song gives me chills. Probably one of their best written lyrics are in this song.

16 Everything I Didn't Say

This song has a lot of meaning to me, it should be marked higher. It's such a beautiful song.

Wait, don't tell me heaven is a place on earth. But it surely is here, somewhere in the crowds of a 5sos concert

This song is my story... LOL. Just joking. Yet I love this song, definitely!

This song describes a moment everyone will have in their lives

17 Lost Boy

Lost boy is so emotional I love it so much because Luke is the list boy he even said it himself

Best song ever it should definitely be higher!

I love all of 5sos's songs but this ranks in around 5th or 6th on my favourites, definitely should be higher, although it's a reasonably upbeat song it still has a lot of meaning, which can vary depending on the way you look at it which is a great aspect of this song, despite probably not having the greastest meaning of all their songs, it still show the emotional side of 5 Seconds Of Summer

In my view this is the best of all

18 Social Casualty

I really love this song because the lyrics, the vocals, just everything. Especially since this song (and Rejects) stands out more to all their songs lyrically. Because the boys wanna be "punk rock" and although they are more pop punk, it really does bring out the whole punk-ish vibe that they tend to aim. Just proves that they're more than just some teenage boys who write cute songs about girls. Really great song along side all their other ones.

This song reminds me of my life. I think most people can relate to this song. I feel almost sad this isn't popular. If it was popular it would be overplayed and ruin the meaning of the song to me.But, a song doesn't have to be popular to be amazing like this one. So for everyone out there that this song is their favorite 5sos song, they have really good taste. Also the guitar solo is amazing, and it's my favorite part!

Good song. Guitars good but only cause the ripped off Fall Out Boy...

You mean the song in which they stole the riff from sugar we're going down?

19 English Love Affair

I'm terrified to play this in front of my parents considering it's one of their most sexual songs, but I love it anyway. All of their songs have a different sound and they all sing in this one. Plus, Michael wrote it and Ashton has a bomb ass solo.

I love this song but I'm to scared to play it in front of my parents

I LOVE this song! I played it in front of my parents and they did not like it. But of course I still love it!

I like this, but it's a little to dirty... Because if my parents saw this on my playlist I'd be dead

20 Try Hard

I love this song because it was one of their first and they sing about trying hard for a girl and I believe they did try hard cause Luke was and still is insecure, I don't know it just seems like they did. It's one of my favorite songs...

This is literally the best song by them! The lyrics are perfect, the drums and guitar are awesome, its not mainstream, and they all sound like angels! I love Luke's solo too! I mean, I can see how not true fans would pick amnesia or slsp but I'm a REAL fan

This is the song that made me start liking them! I love the lyrics and how Luke sings in this is amazing.

The first time I listened to this song I thought it was creepy, but as it went on I related to it in my own life and Luke's solo is AMAZING

Honestly I think this song is SO underrated! Wherever You Are is extremely emotional and it never fails to make me cry. It's definitely my favorite song of all time.

This is my all time favourite 5sos song and it honestly deserves so much more recognition than it is getting. Everything about this song is just so enchanting, every time this song plays it makes me feel extra nostalgic and extremely teary. 10/10 recommend

I cry and become a teary mess every time I hear this song and just think of how far they've got! Love this song, it's so beautiful! Keep up the good work guys!

My heart stops beating normally every time this song is on! So beautiful and heart-wrenching! Thank you so much Michael Clifford for writing this and Luke for singing this!

Out of the list, this is probably the most pop punk song. And it is so good lyrically and musically. It's definitely on of their best songs

This song is really good, so sad and relatable, you can totally feel the emotions when they sing it, should be at least in 5

This is the most heavy song of 5sos in my opinion. Michael wrote it and the lyrics are pretty damn good

It's so incredibly sad but the meaning behind it hits close to home for me and probably a lot of other fans as upsetting as that is. Every time I hear this song I sob but it's also one of my favorites. These guys are growing and so is their music and I'm so glad they're writing some stuff I can really feel and get into.

I absolutely love this song! This should really be higher it has so much meaning to it, you can also really connect to it.

I cried for such along time when hearing this because I've gone through that and it's so beautiful with so much meaning.

The lyrics are so beautiful and the instrumentals... On point. Amazing.

38 American Idiot (Cover)

The American Idiot cover really did bring out more of the attitude of what the band really is, that pop punk vibe and I do adore how even though they covered it; they still put a bit of their own vibe that we hear in their actual songs in this. Michael did an amazing job with vocals, which I loved cause you usually hear either Luke or Calum sing. And I love how they added a bass solo and drum solo into the song too. Amazing cover, I think one of their bests by far.

Somehow like it better than the original! And I actually like Green Day

I know this is a cover, but damn. It's so good.

This is how to cover a good rock song from a proper band with meaningful lyrics and transform it into a bad-sang pop rock song for 13 Y.O. fangirls.

39 Close As Strangers

So amazing... Makes me cry every time! But this should be much higher on this list...

A lot of people don't know this song, but I think it is one of their best songs! Their voices are perfect, and it makes me so sad!

I cry every time I hear this song. Michael was the perfect choice for the very beginning and end.

How could this song be this low rate? Its such an amazing song. So heartbreaking

49 Rejects

The guitars, the base, the lyrics, the message, it all contributes to a great song. I honestly love this song and its message because I can relate to it. This is a classic 'rebellious teen' song but it's so good. It talks about the troubles of relationships, grades, and fitting in. And the guitar solo. Short and sweet. I am always up for a long guitar solo especially when it rocks. I do wish the solo was longer, but there's a good solo, so I can't complain. I feel as if 5sos u sweatbands how to write and carry out good pop-rock/pop-punk songs, and rejects will always be one of my favorites.

I think that this song is what the band would like to represent themselves as, and it does a great job describing some of today's teenage society

Totally relatable for me and the lyrics are amazing. Should definitely be number 1

Very underrated. Kind of has a ATL vibe to it? Definitely one of my favorites

50 Gotta Get Out

Gotta Get Out was the song link tweeted out by Louis Tomlinson, which gave millions of 1D fans their very first taste of the Sauce.

The tune and lyrics are very simple, but touching. Calum's unique vocals are poignant; there's a lovely vulnerability he exudes... for example, @ 1:19:

"because I feel so damn lost, and it comes with a cost...being alone.."

Non-fans sometimes assume 5SOS is all about Luke...this song shows otherwise.

What do I see, GOTTA GET OUT in 27? How com? I obviously deserves in top 5!

First 5SOS song I heard, always my favorite

Beautiful song
