You have 3 days to vote on whether you think 5SOS are a "boyband".

It occurred to us yesterday that we might have sparked some controversy when we referred to 5 Seconds of Summer as a "boyband".

Never one to miss out on a learning experience, we decided to do some field research and try to get to the bottom of whether or not 5SOS are a boy band or just a band of boys.  Twitter is a pretty good arbiter of public sentiment so we took it there.

 

As it turns out, people have a lot of feelings about whether they're a boy band.   

A decent amount of people are ready to wage war against anyone who refers to 5SOS as a "boyband". This is understandable because the fandom is fragile following the band's recent logo debacle.

Some people are majorly convinced that they are a "boyband". 

 

Maybe it has something to do with instruments?

Basically, we still have no idea whether or not they're a boyband. You tell us.

Keep in mind that this is the definitive vote on whether this group of people are a "band" or a "boyband". Vote on this or forever hold your peace.

 


VOTING CLOSES 12 AM ON JUNE 1ST. THE RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED AND WE CAN FINALLY PUT THE DEBATE TO REST.
