The boys have done it again and the fans are just so damn proud...

They've done it again. After a hard fought campaign, 5 Seconds Of Summer have achieved the highest accolade of the year, being officially named as the worst band of 2016. 

Readers of RockSound voted 5SOS as the "Worst International Band" of the year, beating fellow nominees Black Veil Brides, Attila, Twenty One Pilots and Babymetal (don't get mad Skeleton Clique - TØP won "Best International Band" as well. Everybody calm down).

Not only that, the boys also topped a similar poll in Kerrang magazine, taking the top spot on the "Worst Band" list for the second year in a row.

Most bands, of course, would not take too kindly to this sort of news...but 5SOS seem to be pretty cool about the whole thing!




You gotta keep it positive!

And, encouraged by the boys' reactions, the fans took to Twitter to throw the ultimate celebration!





Congrats boys - anyone can win "best band" awards but what you're doing is a real skill!

5SOS are expected to release a new album in late 2017.
