Ever since 5 Seconds Of Summer released their latest single, “She’s Kinda Hot,” the internet has been running rampant with allegations that it sounds eerily similar to My Chemical Romance’s “Teenagers.” What do 5SOS think about the comparisons? Surprisingly enough, they agree. “That’s just because of the 12-bar blues,” shares guitarist Michael Clifford (via Billboard). “I think it might be in the same key as well. People were like, ‘You guys should sound more like My Chemical Romance.’ Then we do sound like My Chemical Romance and people are like, ‘Why the fuck do you sound like My Chemical Romance?’ Ugh!”
Listen to both tracks below. Do you think they are too similar?
