It’s that time again, our favourite Aussie drummer is ageing another year. In celebration of Ashton’s 22 years, we’ve picked 22 songs that remind us of him to get you in the mood to boogaloo!
Plucked from the archives of his twitter account, lyrics and songs shared on Spotify, and many a Snapchat, we’ve compiled a list that includes the likes of Journey, Guns N’ Roses, and 5SOS themselves. The perfect way to rock out (with your socks out) in Ash’s honour!
You can check out the full playlist below, but here are a few of our personal favourites!
Jet – Are You Gonna Be My Girl
Is there anything more Ashton than an Australian rock band? We don’t think so! Bonus: this is one the boys hand picked for the pre-show playlist.
Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out
If the blossoming friendship between Ashton and 21p drummer Josh Dun wasn’t enough to warrant this hit a spot on our list, Ashton’s very generous gift to Josh sure was.
Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up
“We talk about him a lot for some reason. It’s a thing we do.”
5SOS – Hey Everybody!
If not because Ashton is 5SOS’ biggest fan, then definitely for his side gig as a children’s birthday entertainer!
Ashton Irwin – Do The Boogaloo
Of course no list of Ashton Irwin inspired songs would be complete without the chart topping Do The Boogaloo! Infectiously catchy, we’ll be singing this one all the way to Ashton’s next birthday!
