Have big fanbase but not as talented as they are portrayed
But what class of sick joke is this? BVB? Really? Come on the critics are very neutral to them, how the hell they are going to be more overrated than Taylor Swift, Katy Perry or Twenty One Pilots?

Not really overrated, just one of the greatest rock and roll bands. It's not the accolades earned, concert world tours, nor albums sold which were their achievements. It's the respect they deserve from their fans. That's a good reason why Coldplay has worked so hard to entertain the world to sing along. Coldplay has huge hit songs they have written such as "Yellow", "Fix You", "Adventure of a Lifetime", "Clocks", "Viva La Vida", "Scientist", and many more! These guys made a great career as rock stars.
How can you say that they are overrated? Come on guys
These guys are FINE. OK?
Constantly a hit in the charts and hyped on the radio however his rapping is average and jsut adds Spanish lyrics almost every song

Stupid meaningless music, fame based on looks, they live for the drama and getting wasted. Can't sing well enough or give a decent show.
They are only famous because of One Direction and their looks. Their songs are run-of-the-mill
That is the most annoying band.I cannot even listen to their newest song "Hey Everybody".It makes me wanna kill myself. They say they are rock band,just because they play instruments (electric guitar,bass,drums).If they are,then they're the worst rock band on world. They will never be like Blink 182. I have nothing against their songs "She looks so perfect" and "She's kinda hot".These two songs aren't bad nor good for me. Their fans are mostly female and they rarely talk about their music,they mostly talk about their looks and are constantly fighting over them. So,in a nutshell:5SOS sucks(at least for me)
They toured with One Direction, therefore must be loved otherwise one direction wouldn't tour with them, is what 1D fans say therefore they say they love 5SOS
