The 5SOSFam have a VERY good reason to be proud of the boys today today


2016 has been a tough old year. We’ve lost greats like Alan Rickman and Harambe, Brexit happened, and then there’s Trump (the less said about that, the better).

But during all the bad times, the 5SOS boys have been there to make us smile. Not only have they produced some absolute bangers, but they’ve also melted our hearts, and made us generally really proud to be part of the fandom.

And now the 5SOSFam have yet another reason to be proud of the boys, because it’s just been announced that they’re the most talked about band on Tumblr for 2016 – and that’s a SERIOUS achievement.

KINGS.

Speaking about the band’s journey to the top spot,  Tumblr’s content insights manager, Amanda Brennan, told Billboard:

“5 Seconds of Summer getting to No. 1 wasn’t surprising; they were No. 1 most weeks on Fandom Metrics. And I think of a lot of it just has to do with…cute boys from Australia making really relatable music that’s fun. You don’t have to be into pop-punk to like 5 Seconds of Summer. They have this mass appeal that anyone can pick up and be really excited about them. “

Damn straight, Amanda.

Turns out smutty  5SOS fanfiction is actually pretty good, really.
