The song that made him want to be a musician…

Hold On by Good Charlotte

“They were the first band that I actually loved and was a huge fan of.”

 

The song with the greatest lyrics ever…

Jesus of Suburbia by Green Day

“It captures this genius concept of a f***ing terrible place. And it’s like five songs in one.”

 

The song that you wouldn’t expect to see on his iPod…

Nothing But Trouble by Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth

“That’s the only one of his that I know – but it’s pretty great.”

 

The song he wants to be remembered by…

“It’s just a straight-up rock song with an incredible melody and great lyrics”

 

The song that he’d like to cover…

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2

“It’s just a great pop song and stadium anthem, and I’d love to see an arena have this kind of music but with a younger audience.”

The song that makes him want to stage dive…

Little Things by Good Charlotte

“If you listen to it on your headphones, it really makes you want to smash some stuff up and get angry”

 

The song that made 5SOS the most cash…

She Looks So Perfect by 5 Seconds of Summer

“We’ve not really seen any money, although this was a big one”

 

The best song ever…

Vertigo by U2

“There are endless hooks in this song: a great guitar riff which comes in on the verse, great lyrics and a great chorus.”

 

The song he wishes they hadn’t recorded…

It’s a Secret!

“Anything we haven’t released, I wish we hadn’t recorded.  There are a few sessions you’ll go into and they try and make you do a certain thing, but when you get the song back, it’s f***ing awful.”

So he loves everything they’ve released! That or he doesn’t want to upset fans…
