The K-Tizzle Sizzle - Backstreet's Back...

5 Seconds of Summer. Who? Yeah, exactly.

Backstreet's Back... Oh, They're Not?
by Katie Langley

A few months ago I upset a 13 year old girl by confusing Justin Bieber and Harry Styles. Some might call that sacrilege. Some might say that by association with this music blog I really should know better (you’re probably right). Me? I say, meh – it’s all a bit same same. I mean, c’mon, they both have awful perfume lines and those hair-do’s you just want to sweep away from their eyes.

In any event, just as I’m starting to figure out who’s who I’ve been informed that there are new heartthrobs who have burst on the scene. Does the name 5 Seconds of Summer mean anything to you? If you’re anything like me the answer to that is probably no. Basically all you need to know is that they’re a Sydney pop-punk group who are driving tweens wild. Oh yeah, and they have the sweeping hair thing happening too.

I say this all with mocking tones and judgement, but of course there was very much and time and place where boy groups had a special place in my heart. These days it’s mostly at karaoke and on those Friday nights at home alone with a bottle of whatever is on hand (read: Passion Pop). It might only be Wednesday, but don't let that stop you.


Backstreet Boys

Take That
