5 Seconds of Summer Information

The band released it self-titled debut album in 2014, and in so doing proved they were more than just some opening act. The album, which featured the hit song “She Looks So Perfect,” hit the top spot on the charts of 14 different countries, including the United States. Their second album, “Sounds Good Feels Good,” was released in October 2015 and peaked in charts in nine different countries, again including the U.S. The album features the hit song “She’s Kinda Hot.”
