5 Seconds of Summer influences? ‘Everything from Queen to Green Day’


Visiting TODAY to perform as part of the Citi Concert Series, pop band 5 Seconds of Summer sits down with the anchors and gets acquainted. Referring ruefully to the early hour, Ashton Irwin says, “No music is supposed to be played at that hour of the day,” but adds, “the fans helped us through it.” He says that even though the band is from Australia, they’re “heavily influenced by California bands” as well as “everything from Queen to Green Day.”
