Interesting facts and trivia about 5 Seconds of Summer. By Songfacts®.

The pop/rock band 5 Seconds of Summer formed while Hemmings, Clifford, and Hood attended Norwest Christian College together in Sydney, Australia. They would all drop out to pursue music.

The original trio gained a following by posting YouTube videos of cover songs, including Mike Posner's "Please Don't Go" and Chris Brown and Justin Bieber's "Next 2 You." Shortly after, they recruited Ashton Irwin as their drummer.

The group's popularity exploded after One Direction's Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson tweeted shout-outs to them after watching one of their videos (it was later revealed that 1D had a financial interest in 5SOS). 5 Seconds of Summer would be the opening act for One Direction on their 2013 Take Me Home tour and their 2014 Where We Are tour.
