    I don't actively go out of my way to listen to nor avoid listening to their songs, nor am I able to audibly identify their songs without prompting. I shall be doing that now before continuing this post.

    Closer is stupidly overrated. How has this been near the top of the charts for so long? I am not into it at all.

    #SELFIE (as stylised on the official music video) is annoying as fuck with the chick speaking random shit, and it severely grinds my gears. The music itself is alright though... and after a quick search on YouTube, it seems that opinion of mine is mirrored by a significant amount of people lol

    Roses isn't terrible. I can't listen to it for too long, cos it is giving me a headache. However, it's better than Closer.

    Daya, the female singer in "Don't Let Me Down" is only 18. She was born in 1998. Jesus Christ I feel old. Anyway, I don't understand why it suddenly changes after she actually says "Don't let me down." I feel like it ruins the flow of what is a mostly decent song. Feels unnecessary to me. Also, the top comment on the official music video said "2016, even cars have started twerking." I had the sudden urge to murder someone after reading that.

    The One is alright. More mellow than the other songs, sounds alright. Can't complain.

    "feat Coldplay" ok so this is gonna be depressing then... the first minute of mashing piano keys gave me a headache. The next 20ish seconds were enjoyable. I then went back to having a headache. That isn't music, that's just mashing the same keys over and over hoping it becomes catchy. Ruins the song for me.

    Overall, it seems like they are able of getting the right idea and making a decent track, but they often try too much to stand out, and that helps to ruin the sound of their songs. I don't think they'll be going down in history as great innovators of music, but they're not the worst thing to be in the charts.

    Naturally, that's just my opinion. Others may rate them, others may hate them. I just think they could do a lot better.

    I just listened to The One, and I'm slightly disappointed that they don't actually sound like chain smokers singing. That's probably for the best though.

    It's April Fools day so hacking into a lot of people's personal accounts and stealing their credit card information so I can buy a lot of stuff for myself seems like a suitable prank to pull considering its 2017 and tech pranks are the trend.

    I'd have liked the merging all channels into 1 channel "prank" to have worked without making 90% of the contributors at the time leave. The reason why it didn't was because they all believed it would be something coyo and DN would actually do.

    Yes.
    e: In general I stay away from the overly romantic / porn-ish variants as they don't really add anything imo and are just a sick waste of time. I read action-adventures fanfics of most popular anime mostly.

    No, I'd rather read actual fiction tbh.

    Also, way to go with a closed question.

    Nope.

    Don't read any kind.

    Any question is a closed question if you're stubborn enough.

    Thank you @Annoying Orange for covering me yesterday, the last 24 hours have been some of the hardest emotionally and I don't know when it's going to stop so I seriously appreciate the save.

    Question for April 3rd, 2017: What is one movie that should NEVER be remade?

    Pulp Fiction.

    I feel like a director would masterfully fuck it up if they tried to remake it.

    the godfather, parts 1 and 2 in particular

    not only did it present a classic story with powerful themes perfectly even for today's standards, but it had one of the greatest ensemble casts of all time. brando, de niro, caan, duvall, and cazale blended into their roles perfectly, and we got to see al pacino at his peak with one of the most nuanced portrayals of a tragic hero / villain in film history, and this was pacino before he became yell-and-shout scarface pacino. why even bother with a remake

    plus even if it did get remade, so many elements of the movie have already been copied by other films in the genre (particularly the character of brando's don vito) that it would just feel derivative.

    "Joey didn't give me any songs to check out, let's just put the band's name in YouTube and see what comes up."
    "Ok, let's see this top song."
    3 seconds later...
    "...oh it's this shit."

    That is my opinion on them summed up.

    Also Joyverse, you're not exactly contributing to the thread with that post now, are you? If you've not got an answer to the question, don't bloody answer it!

    e_e I am bad, sowi.

    Truth be told, I have had listened to 5SOS. There was a time when Joey went crazy and spammed my twitter with votes for 5SOS so I gave it a try.

    Ans: Nothing's replacing the spot for the Backstreet Boys that I have in my heart.

    But he didn't answer it, so he did exactly what you told him to do here.

    Anyway, they're your basic boy band. Catchy enough songs that thrive off of (usually) one above average singer and bolstered by good looks to distract the young females and other people of various sexual orientations from anything actually bad about their songs.

    If you like them that's great! But it's not my thing.
