This is seriously the worst band in history. And One Direction isn't really considered a band. They have no talent whatsoever. Lets face it girls, if you took their good looks away would you still be fans? - Alpha101

They are totally dumb and they only have fans because their cute but once that guy got married none like them

Obviously your deaf. One directions singing abilities are absolutely amazing. Also all of their songs have great meanings. Maybe if you weren't so busy hating on them you would have some time to actually listen to their songs and the meanings.

They were the best, they r the best and they'll always remain the best... Just get that straight into your head, whoever you r!
