The Best And Worst 5 Seconds Of Summer Songs

Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer was created in 2011. The lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist is Luke Hemmings, their bassist is Calum Hood, their lead guitarist is Michael Clifford, and their drummer is Ashton Irwin. 5 Seconds of Summer, commonly referred to as 5SOS, is a pop-punk rock band with three world tours, two EPs, and three studio albums under their belt. So with a fairly vast musical catalog, here is my top ten 5SOS songs ranked best from worst.

1. Easier (Live From The Vault).

This version of the song is just ... *chef's kiss*. The studio version is good but it's more pop-like. This version is more gritty, more rock-sounding, and just true to their sound. "Easier" (Live From The Vault) was released in July 2019 and is a single on their upcoming fourth studio album.

2. Vapor.

This was almost number one but it is definitely a close second. These guys know how to do ballads, it's just pure emotion from the leading and back-up vocals.

3. Youngblood.

As the second single off their third studio album, I have a love for this song because while it is very pop, it is not as childish as their debut album. This song definitely shows growth and maturity from the band.

4. Want You Back.

As the leading single and second track of their third studio album, "Youngblood", this song introduced a slightly new sound from the band. It's a more pop-leaning album, and this song has a great dance-pop/EDM feel to it.

5. Good Girls.

As the third track and one of the singles from their debut album, this song is a bit of a cliche but it's such a nice little pop-bop. I can't help but love it.

6. Talk Fast.

This is the fifth track off their third studio album, "Youngblood". The only reason it's not higher is because the structure of the song is a bit simple and repetitive, however, it's still pretty catchy and upbeat so it's still enjoyable to listen to.

7. Valentine.

The fourth track and third single off "Youngblood" it's an anti Valentine anthem and I enjoy it very much, I've just loved all the other songs for longer and that's why it's not higher.

8. Hey Everybody!

This is the second single and third track off of "Sounds Good Feels Goods". this song just missed the mark. It doesn't really fit the themes of the album, and it doesn't really fit their overall sounds. Just an odd song all around.

9. Ghost Of You.

Again while I don't hate this song, it is definitely one of my least favorites. While I enjoy all of the band's other balllads, this one truly just missed the mark compared to other songs like "Beside You" or "Wherever You Are". I just feel like they could of done more with this song. This is the last track on "Youngblood".

10. Catch Fire.

While I do not hate this song or think it is actually the worst, it is definitely my least favorite song by the band. It is the sixth track on their sophomore album, "Sounds Good Feels Good". The song, vocally, sounds just out of place and I'm not feeling it.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
