1. 5 Seconds of Summer, “She Looks So Perfect”
One of the weirdest things about music, besides “everything,” is you never know where your next favorite song is coming from. Case in point: in 2014 it’s these four Australian teen-pop punk boys yelling, “You look so perfect standing there in my American Apparel underwear.” Their breakthrough hit is a blast of big-hearted girl worship, all guitars and pheromones: “I made a mixtape straight out of ‘94/I got your ripped skinny jeans lying on my floor.” 5SoS played this at MetLife in August when they were opening for One Direction, in front of 80,000 screaming girls, the drummer wearing a Sonic Youth Confusion Is Sex T-shirt under a MIXTAPE '94 backdrop. Not a thing about that moment or this song makes sense. It’s real punk because it’s real pop, it’s real pop because it’s real punk, yet it’s real anything only because it’s faux everything. Underwear song of the year. Mixtape song of the century. Underwear-and-mixtape combo of all time. And I know now that I’m so down.
