How To Be A 5SOS Fan: It’s Pretty Simple!

All you have to do is be super nice and love music. And watch their 'Live From MTV' live stream today at 2:30 p.m. ET!

First the VMA nomination, then the “Live From MTV” announcement? Can’t handle.

5 Seconds of Summer are blowing up, and I want in on the 5SOSFam, the loyal fans who stick behind Michael, Calum, Ashton and Luke. So I did some research. Here’s what you have to do to join the 5SOSFam:

First off, watch their MTV live stream on Monday. (Duh.)

Own a turtle suit.

Hold meet-ups.

Imagine on Tumblr.

Own their album.

Become a spy.

Love everyone, despite h8rs. After all, One Direction and 5SOS are friends!

Have pride for your idiot friends.

Be forgiving.

Have ridiculously themed follow parties.

Watch the VMAs August 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT! The boys are up for Artist to Watch!
