Most girls just think they're cute and have sexy accents. In my opinion, they are just as bad as Justin Bieber. But, I hate Justin Bieber more.

There are many reasons:
- They sang like angels sent from Heaven...make that five gods
- They are lovable and funny
- The whole definition of a BOYISH TEEN
- Their accent
- Their songs
- They love their fans so much
- 5 ideal boyfriends
- Their looks
- etc..

** You know it wasn't just the looks that made them popular but their own voice and songs they compose. One Direction composes songs that makes you feel beautiful (What Makes You Beautiful) and prove it (Little Things). They sing songs that always seems to have an unrequited love for them like an ordinary guy. They are five goofy boys who dreams big and it all started in a flight of stairs. And it is nice that even if they are now in top they are still down to earth lads.

Probably because they're sexy.

It's just like how the Jonas Brothers got popular.

Girls love external appearances, and a lot of them like 1D for just that.

I personally don't think their music is any good at all, but that's just my taste.

Lots of girls at my high school loved them because of how they looked but not their music.

That, in my opinion, doesn't make a good artist, but just another idiolized group of celebrities based on appearances.

Aside from the fact they're projected as if they were characters from a reverse harem? No idea.

Doesn't matter, they'll be forgotten soon enough. Once they grow into men another group of poster boys will move in to replace them. Advanced capitalism at work.

They`re famous because of their good COMMON MAINSTREAM looks

They sing MAINSTREAM which is what people love these days. They can sing well as a group and individually but the main reason why they are so popular is because of their looks.

Because there's always gonna be people who like that kind of music. The Beatles were considered the same as 1D when they came to America, and look how they turned out. Not everyone likes the same music genre as you, so don't go thinking that they're losers because they like 1D.
And trust me because this is coming from a die hard Fall Out Boy/Panic! at the Disco/My Chemical Romance fan.
People always ask why people like FOB/P!ATD/MCR saying that they're 'gay' (I'm not gonna lie, they're as straight as a circle some times I mean come on, have you seen them on tour?) and that the guy-liner and tight jeans are stupid, but hey, I like their music. The same goes for 1D fans. People call them 'gay' and that the over used pop lyrics and their voice is stupid, but hey, people like their music, and that's all that matters.

Why do people even ask these questions? It's because the media controls everything. It's not that hard to understand. The very fact that this thread was made just means that the media got to you.

They're a boy band. Girls like boy bands....Soon enough they'll die off and everyone will forget about them and move to another boy band. It's a cycle.
