Top Ten Reasons Why 5 Seconds of Summer Is Better Than One Direction

The Top Ten

1 5sos Is Famous for Talent 1d Is Famous for Looks

I think 5sos and 1d are both famous for looks and talent cause you got to remember 1d has been said that there almost as famous as the beatles for TALENT NOT LOOKS and 5sos is a amazing talented band that I love and I also love 5sos as well so don't say that 1d isn't talented...but that is just my opinion on this

If 5sos had 'talent' they would have become popular themselves and didn't have to be friends and ask 1d to promote their music. Also 1d have won more awards the 5sos which explains a lot. One direction have good music and talent whish is why they have so many fans around the world. Even though they came 3rd in x factor there talent got them to the stage which they are at now. 5sos are only popular because of 1d so 1d are better than them because they helped their career.

Ok, first off, stop comparing 5 Seconds of Summer to One direction. Both bands have something about them that appeals to the fans (whether it is looks or talent). I have nothing against 1D but honestly, I like 5SOS way better. That's just my opinion. Stop comparing them its really annoying.

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.

2 Their Songs Are Better

5SOS have some songs with meaning like Broken Home while One Direction have more fun upbeat tracks.

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

That's totally why One Direction has more hits right?

3 They All Can Play Instruments

Niall plays guitar, Louis can play piano, and Zayn plays the triangle. So there. *snaps fingers in z formation*

On a more serious note how does it matter? The One Direction boys are known for their singing. It's kindling of like saying "Shampoo can't moisturize your hair like conditioner so it sucks" Um shampoo is supposed clean your it has a different purpose so maybe that's why

Why do people look over the fact that members of 1D do play instruments? Niall and Harry can play guitar, Louis plays piano and Liam said he can do a bit of both piano and guitar. Niall and 5sos played guitar together many times, don't be so ignorant.

That's definitely a plus and the reason why 5SOS is not labeled as a boyband, but as an actual band.

They have a band for the instruments and Niall can play the giutar

4 They Can Write Their Own Songs

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

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.

That's important for an artist because you can relate to them a lot more because they wrote what they are singing.

Even though they all have written their last 3 albums including their solo material now

5 Their Songs Are Meaningful

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)

Ok both bands are cool (I like 1Ds older songs like I would and one thing) and I like 5sos current and older songs but don't be judging them because of English love affair and I can't remember because they were just 2 songs. Plus by meaningful songs it means like broken home a divorce family and the kid suffering,rejects of how they don't care what others say, she's kinda hot on mental health, hey everybody on not to be upset if your broke and just live life. Overall both bands are cool (I prefer 5sos) but I also like some 1D songs anyway shut up people about English love affair it was one song!

Because apparently Diana, What Makes You Beautiful, Home, Night Changes, History, don't Forget Where You Belong, Story Of My Life, Through The Dark, Moments, etc are not meaningful? And even most of their love songs has tons of meaning, just because it's a love song shouldn't determine its worth.

Just because steal my girl hasn't got a deep meaning doesn't mean that all of their songs are meaningless. You can't judge them on a single song when u haven't heard the album which has a lot of thought and meaning in it. They have chose steal my girl to promote the album

6 They Don't Use Autotune

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.

One Direction used auto tune for More Than This, but that's it. They sound identical to their studio tracks when on stage.

One direction don't use autotune at their concerts and their voice at concerts are angelic

One Direction don't use autotune that much anymore.

7 They Didn't Have Help from Anyone

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!

Techicaly, they are that famous because of their fans so they had help from their fans to get where they are now. Besides that, getting help from somebody on the industry isn't a bad thing.

Lol it doesn't matter if they had help or they did not. They still make good music and that's what matters

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.

8 They Are Younger

Are you seriously saying a band is better than another, because of age? Believe me, I hate both of these bands, but seriously judging a band, due to their age?! Pathetic.

When they are younger it means with 18 or 19 years old age they are better than 22 years old Boys

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.

9 One Direction Lost Zayn Malik

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.

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.

So your saying that with Zayn Malik the band is better than 5SOS?

10 They Support Fans with Personal Problems

I would suggest not listening to just One Direction's singles and listen to their lower key songs as well as interviews where they talk about fan struggles. You'd be way more woke if you did.

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...

They deal with real problems that make us feel better then 1d

That's why I love 5SOS

The Contenders

11 5SOS boys are so much funnier

So that automatically makes them better musicians? Because I thought this was a music related list.

5sos is not even funny
1D is wayyy more funnier

5sos is more open with their conversations and are way more innapropriate but One Direction is hell a funny without feeling need to bring up penises every 2 minutes

12 5SOS are friends that came together and made a band. One Direction was put together on X-Factor

Well that's true, kinda, Michale and Luke and Calum were friends while They messaged Ashton on fb because they need someone and then tey because friend with them, Cause originally Ashton hated 5sos. 1d came together casue of xfactor and had to learn to like each other

I guess this one is true, because... it is.

Yeah so true

13 Louis Tomlinson Got a Girl Knocked Up When He Was Already Taken

That situation happened a long time ago and he even got back with the girl and they're fine so why are you worried about it?

Louis is a real cheater and we don't deal with cheaters

So... they have done bad things to

True. Louis is like the worst

14 They Aren't Rude

One Direction is known to be very nice boys. Even nicer than 5sos in my opinion. They're humble, do kind things for fans like buy them food while waiting outside for events, help staff members, etc. especially Harry, he's an angel.

All the members in 1D is nice this list is full of lies

One Direction aren't rude, they are cool guys.

15 One Direction Boys Can't Sing

You have the right to think that, but if you truly think 5sos sings better than One Direction, PLEASE GET NEW EARS. I used to think 5sos was better until I realized; Michael can't sing that well. He's my favorite member other than Calum and even I see he's not a singer, he's a performer. Calum isn't that great either yet he can harmonize well, Ashton is a great singer except he barely sings and isn't as good as Harry or Liam. I used to think Luke slayed all of them but then it came to my attention he has no versatility in his voice, no support, he's slightly unstable now ( he used to be more stable, I don't know what happened ). Generally 1D can sing better.

HAHA ok ok. So one direction went on a singing competition a became what they are because of their voices idiot

Honey, they can definitely sing, listen to live performances or their auditions on the X-Factor.

What is this list anymore I love both bands but this is getting dumb

16 All 1D Sings About Is Girls

Yh because most of their fans are girls it wouldn't make sense to sing about boys it shows that they are dedicating their songs to their fans however they sing about other things too such as diana etc... And are down to earth

True, 5SOS sing about other things such as in Broken Home they sing about divorce and family life and in She's Kinda Hot they sing about mental health.

Heartbreak girl, kiss me kiss me, what I like about you, good girls, she looks so perfect; you are telling me 5sos don't?

Not every song is about girls. For instance, the song "One Thing" isn't really about girls.

17 Louis is Tone Deaf

Louis has gotten better and more confident with his voice in case you haven't noticed. His high notes are very good and he sounds very nice now.

That's the most stupid thing I've ever read in my life.

Who cares? Louis is awesome

18 They Act Themselves

This one is true. the fact that no one can see how fake 1D is mental, and I'm a stan of the boys. but honestly 5SOS do take the cake

They do act themselves, they've just matured lol

1D acts themselves

I love patients

19 They're a Rock Band and Not a Generic Boyband

That's actually really true

They are generic

5sos isn't a rock band, they're pop punk. And One Direction doesn't even want to be a rock band so why is this even part of the list.

1d is really Generic, 5sos has some spunk but is not a rock band they are a pop/punk band while 1d is a pop bad as are other boybands

20 They Have Their Own Record Label; Hi or Hey Records.

One Direction are the people who got them to that point

What does 1d got on that huh?

What about hey violet?

with Hey Vilote under them

21 They Play Pop Punk
22 They are more connected in a friendship way
23 They Weren't Formed Under the X-Factor

What's wrong with X Factor?

Yeah? Well you know who found them? NIALL AND LOUIS?!
