Aussie pop rock group 5 Seconds of Summer have just released the video for their new single, 'She's Kinda Hot', amassing 1.3m (and rising) views on YouTube in 24 hours.

The lads - Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael - have a seriously dedicated fanbase which is currently giving those very vocal Direcioners a run for their money on Twitter.

The hashtags #SKHMUSICVIDEO and #SHESKINDAHOTMUSICVIDEO have been trending at various points since the video landed Monday night.

The song was co-written by Joel and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and the 5SOS have said it's "a revolution for our fans to get behind", a place for the "misfits" to belong.

The video shows the four building a car before gathering a crowd of supporters.

Response from fans online has been excited to say the least. 

Not since One Direction released their first single without Zayn last week has a fervent fandom been so excited on Twitter...

Having said that, One Direction's loyal following are currently bemoaning the lack of respect afforded to band member Liam Payne with the hashtag #RespectLiam trending on Twitter.

But let's focus on the positive - here are some of the best reactions to 5SOS's new vid:
