The Aussie rock band 5 Seconds of Summer rock the Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show to talk about their beginning, not going on X-Factor, dating and more.
5 Seconds of Summer is a continuously rising rock band that has been taking the U.S. by storm. The band has experienced added success and Stern congratulated them on it and equated their success to that of the Beatles. The guys were pretty flattered by the comparison as Stern said they were a big deal. They broke out onto the scene with a self-titled album and their hit song "She Looks So Perfect."
"Howard said the guys met in high school. The guys talked about how they actually met in 7th grade," according to MarksFriggin.
"Howard said the whole thing sort of comes together. The guys said they come together and then meet their drummer. Howard introduced the guys and talked to Luke first. The guys said they put the best looking guy in front. Luke is the lead singer. Howard said the other guys are good looking too. They thanked him for that. Howard said he was always put in another room when he was in a band."
Michael, Calum and Ashton are the other members of the bands and Ashton, the drummer, admitted that he played in a worship band before joining the guys of 5 Seconds of Summer. The band released its album Sounds Good Feels Good on October 23 and it features its punk rock sound.

While on the show, the guys admitted that they would never go on a show like X-Factor because it felt somewhat fake to them.
"Howard said one of the guys tried to date Taylor Swift" according to MF.
"They said it was more like an attempt to talk to her and she never replied. They talked about how they went to a party she had and one of the guys tried to talk to her. Howard said Taylor is very hot to him. The guys agreed. Howard asked if the guys would have sex with her. One of the guys said he doesn't think he would."
One of the members talked about attempting to date but the difficulties that come because of the tours. He was actually seeing a "model type" for a couple of months.
The band talked about not wanting to identify with the "boy bands" because they write and perform their own music. The guys also performed a few of their hits for the Stern Show, as Stern gave them a few plugs for their new album Sounds Good Feels Good.
