5 Seconds Of Summer Named Worst Band At NME Awards, Band And Their Fans React In The Best Way Possible

5 Seconds Of Summer were named Worst Band at Wednesday night’s NME Awards, because obviously it’s impossible to have fun without a few laughs at someone else.

*raises eyebrows*

However, the joke’s on NME, because 5SOS actually wanted to really win this award. Yes, they really did.


Back when the award nominations were announced in December 2014, the band’s Michael Clifford tweeted, urging fans to vote in the mag’s online poll.

And when he got his wish…

Clearly seeing the funny side, 5SOS fans voted in their droves, and can now be found celebrating the win on Twitter.

Previous winners of the award include chart-toppers The 1975 and One Direction, who've sold millions of albums worldwide, won four Brit Awards, 11 MTV EMAs and 19 Teen Choice awards. We reckon 5SOS will be just fine.
