5SOS Covered BMTH And We're Like OMG

Too many abbreviations.
We always enjoy it when artists enter the Radio 1 Live Lounge and do something a little different. The 5SOS boys didn't disappoint on that front when they dropped by yesterday.
Usually when punk/rock acts enter the studio they tend to cover a pop song. However, the rebellious scamps from 5SOS decided that was too obvious and decided to go for something heavier - "Drown" by Bring Me The Horizon. But if that wasn't enough, they performed it acoustic with a string quartet!
It's actually really gorgeous. Not only does it show off the bands musicianship but it also completely overhauls the original. It's almost unrecognisable.
