If only 5 Seconds Of Summers' music was as good as their reaction to being named Worst Band at the NME Awards with Austin, Texas, hey? When news reached the Australian pop-rockers they were nominated for the award by NME readers, instead of sulking, they actively asked fans to vote for them. Band member Michael Clifford got his wish, and here's how he responded.

Welcome to one of the hottest contested gongs at this year’s NME Awards 2015 With Austin, Texas. The Best New Band Supported By Replay category is always one of the most sought after awards on the night, purely because of the pedigree of acts who’ve won it before. 2002? The Strokes. 2003?
