Alright, pop-punk purists! Scene staples Paramore and up-and-coming dreamboats 5 Seconds of Summer are head-to-head in Fuse's Top 40 of 2014 poll. In the beginning, Paramore's massive fan base slaughtered the 5SOSfam with the votes coming to a 60/40 split! The boys from down under then tweeted the ballot and shared it on Facebook. Now the Blink-182-worshiping teen dreams are murdering the "Ain't It Fun" band. Are you going to let them get away with it?

Round 1 voting ends Monday, October 27, at 6PM ET. What are you waiting for?! Vote now, here!

Whether you're into the flirty partial nudity of 5 Seconds of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect" or the literal record-breaking fun of Paramore's "Ain't It Fun," there's still a few days to get in there and call the shots. It's closer than you think! If your fan favorite doesn't leave victorious, all is well: The group could return as a Wildcard in Round 3. Find out more about how Wildcards work by clicking here.

Remember that Hayley Williams is in our ballot twice. She's also running with Zedd's "Stay The Night" against British babe Ellie Goulding's "Burn." So Hayley fans, get votiing!
