Can you believe that it’s 3 years today since 5 Seconds of Summer played their first ever gig at The Annandale Hotel in Sydney? The boys have achieved so much since then and we’re so proud! But let’s take a look back at the ol’ days when Hemmo1996 existed and our boys were just 4 Aussie school kids who shared a passion of music. Here are our top five 5SOS covers.
5. Jasey Rae – All Time Low
OHMIGOD! Look how young they are! Their thick Oz accents and Michael’s normal hair just screams fetus at everyone. We’ve got goosebumps over this.
4. Year 3000 – Busted
Back before they became this huge supergroup with McFly, Busted were our faves when we were growing up and to hear our current faves covering it just made us almost wet ourselves.
3. What Makes You Beautiful / One Thing – One Direction
They had no idea that Louis Tomlinson was a fan and would later ask them to tour the world with them- TWICE!
2. Teenage Dirtbag – Wheatus
Their first ever cover with Ashton! We’ve always loved Wheatus and this song completely suited the boys. Such fetus. Much feels.
And our favourite cover by 5SOS is *drumroll*….
1. I Miss You – Blink 182
Blink 182 is one of the boys’ biggest influences and this was the first time they were in a recording studio. So many emotions from this.
