5 Seconds Of Summer now boast the dubious accolade of being apparently the ‘Worst International Band.’
Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Michael Clifford have been insulted in this year’s Rocksound poll and fans are not terribly happy with the award.
The award was voted for by readers of the publication, in what has now become a yearly tradition.
The Jet Black Heart hitmakers beat Black Veil Brides, Attila, Twenty One Pilots and Babymetal to the trophy. It seems British rock fans are not lovers of their guitar heavy tunes and pop/rock anthems.
Of course, this isn’t the first time 5SOS have celebrated this sort of award. At the beginning of 2016 One Direction’s best pals won the Worst Band prize at the NME Awards for a second year in a row. Writing on Twitter after the news broke, drummer Ashton Irwin said that they are “unstoppable at being the worst”.
Insiders say the boys are taking this latest award in their stride and see the funny side of it all. Calum teased his fans when he heard the news and he tweeted his millions of followers saying: “I’m a sucker for positivity”
Ashton wasn’t quite so clear about his feelings. We can’ judge if he was upset or joking when he posted: “WE WON WORST BAND OF THE YEAR AGAIN! 2 years in a row. Thanks for voting everyone”
