MusicAn Adult Man’s Ranking of the Guys Who Used to Be in One Direction
Earlier today, one of the members of Team GQ innocuously shared a new song in our work chatroom. The song, "This Town" by Niall Horan of the band One Direction, immediately triggered a waterfall of aspersions to rain down on our now-former colleague, who was immediately banished to the Upside Down without shoes while HR de-activated his email.
Yes, the song is not good. It sounds like a YouTube cover of "Hey There, Delilah" refracted through a password-protected Xanga.
I hope you are not having a good day, because here it is to ruin it:
And yet, it did inspire a dialogue in our work chat. "Several people are typing" and all that. Together, we attempted to answer the question: Which members of One Direction do we actually like? Furthermore, could we rank them?
Of course we could rank them.
A few things to keep in mind. (1) This list is perfect and inarguable and stupid, and (2) I don't know much about One Direction, other than this song is a banger and Zayn has great eyebrows. So here are the members of 1D, both current and former, ranked by an adult man. It is, as the teens say, about to get crazy cool and very lit:
1. Harry with long hair
2. Zayn's ZAP! tattoo
6. AJ the Bad Boy
8. Liam Gallagher
9. Pete Doherty
10. Harry with short hair
11. Niall and his dumbass song
