5 Seconds of Summer weighed in during a recent interview on all the haters – you know they're out there – and in true punk rock fashion, they said they "don't care."

Talking with Billboard magazine, the 5SOS guys gabbed about dealing with that old boy band label that they've been slapped with. How many times do they have to say they're a "band" and not the boyband variety?

Ashton Irwin explained, "Some people think, 'Oh, they're just another boy band. They'll have a thing and then disappear. But we're challenging that thought. We're so proud of the music we make - we love it - and we're fearless. If anyone puts us down, we don't care. Isn't that somewhat punk - not giving a damn what people say?"

Totally.

Yep, they're guys, but a band of boys does not a boy band make. (Huh? Yeah, we even confused ourselves a little bit with that one.) We'll let Ashton sum it up: "People get confused because we're young and we have a female fan base, but so did Fall Out Boy. Pete Wentz was the Justin Bieber of 2007. Girls loved him, they obsessed over him."
