Have we really been jamming with the guys for that long?2011 was a year for the books. Aside from other hits coming out from our fave artists, we had an iconic band in the making that we were not ready for.

Debuting on YouTube with covers and a few originals, 5 Seconds of Summer gained views quickly and soon found themselves touring with some major bands. Things really took off after sharing the stage with One Direction in their 2013 tour Take Me Home.

Following their rise to fame, the band has released three studio albums with world tours to follow each.

None of us knew quite what was going to happen, but we are sure glad it did. Fans across the globe have been getting creative with congratulating and celebrating with the guys throughout the day.

Cheers to you Luke, Ashton, Michael and Calum. We’re here with you all the way.

Happy Birthday.
