5 Seconds of summer is a boyband, and should not be classified as a rock, or punk band despite what many say.

I accept. Thank you pro for making this debate! I am actually not a fan of them, I just wish to have a nice debate!

Opening

Boy band = A pop group composed of attractive young men, whose music and image are designed to appeal primarily to a young teenage audience.(source :http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...)

Wikipedia definition of boy band = loosely defined as a vocal group consisting of young male singers, usually in their teenage years or in their twenties at the time of formation,singing love songs marketed towards young females. Being vocal groups, most boy band members do not play musical instruments, either in recording sessions or on stage, (source :https://en.m.wikipedia.org...)

5 Seconds of Summer = an Australian pop punk/pop rock band. Formed in Sydney in 2011, the band consists of Luke Hemmings (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals), and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals). (Source :https://en.m.wikipedia.org... )

Pop punk = a fusion music genre that combines elements of punk rock with pop music to varying degrees. The music typically combines fast punk tempos, chord changes and loud guitars with pop-influenced melodies and lyrical themes. (Source :https://en.m.wikipedia.org...)

Arguments

1. Based on the definition above, we know that 5 Seconds of Summer plays musical instruments, while boybands don't. 5 Seconds of Summer's musical genre is classified as pop punk or pop rock. That's why 5 Seconds of Summer is actually classified as a punk band. It is also cited in their official sites like wikipedia.

That's all for the first round. I wish you luck!
