Our 5 Seconds of Summer songs list presents the biggest hit singles from a very popular band from Australia formed in the early 2010s. While there have been many successful Australian bands over the past 50 years such as AC/DC, The Bee Gees, Inxs, Crowded House and so many more, 5 Seconds of Summer stand as one of the most recent successful groups emerging from the land down under. The group has sold over ten million records in less than a ten year period. They constantly sell out tours while also breaking worldwide streaming records as their songs stream in the billions. Here are ten of their most successful singles.

In the United Kingdom the song hit number sixty. In the band’s native home of Australia the song was a top 40 hit peaking at number thirty four. There is a bit of an anthem to this song in a minor key sort of sense. A good one to start with that showcases a great chorus and verse.

# 9 – Want You Back

Continuing with our 5 Seconds Of Summer Songs list we take a listen to the great song entitled “Want You Back,” which has nothing to do with the Jackson Five song “I Want You Back.” Yet, this one does have a great groove that elevates a spectacular chorus.

The song was a hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number sixty one. In the band’s native home of Australia the song charted at number thirty two. However, it was in the United Kingdom where the song did the best reaching the number twenty two spot on the United Kingdom pop charts.
