5 Seconds of Summer's "Don't Stop" Is Another Sing-Along Anthem

We already declared 5 Seconds of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect" to be the song of the summer, but the Aussie band's latest single proves they've got plenty more rock-pop anthems ready to go. 

"Don't Stop" is another expertly-crafted radio hit that's equal parts Blink-182 and One Direction, with the heavy guitars smoothed out by the ultra-catchy chorus. We can picture teenage girls and frat bros alike chanting the "You know it! Know it! Know it!" hook. Watch the single's comic book-inspired lyric video above.

Like 5SOS' breakout jam "She Looks So Perfect," their latest is another ode to their ideal gal. But instead of having her "standing there in my American Apparel underwear," they have competition since "everybody wants to take you home tonight."

"Don't Stop" is the lead single off the Aussie quartet's new EP of the same name, dropping on June 15 in the UK. After the success of their debut EP She Look So Perfect—which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 last month—we're sure an American release date will be announced very soon. Meanwhile, U.S. fans can catch the band playing the Billboard Music Awards on May 18—their first American award show. Yesss!
