"She's Kinda Hot" is a song by Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer. The song is the first single from the band's second album Sounds Good Feels Good. The pop punk[5] and pop rock[6] song was co-written by band members Ashton Irwin and Michael Clifford, alongside Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte and produced by John Feldmann. It was released worldwide on 17 July 2015. The music video was released on 5 August 2015 and has more than 50 million views as of 7 August 2018.

The band followed up the single’s release with an EP release on 28 August 2015, featuring bonus tracks and physical editions on both CD and vinyl in certain countries.

Background[edit]

Bassist Calum Hood stated in an interview with radio host Angus O'Loughiln: "The title is really misleading because the song is about people not caring of what others think, it's a revolution for outcasts. It has a deep meaning." Lead guitarist Michael Clifford stated, "The song is heavy as hell, heavier than our previous songs. We were shocked but happy with the reviews."

Composition[edit]

"She's Kinda Hot" is composed in the key of E major with a tempo of 116–120 beats per minute.[7]

Extended play[edit]

The extended play was released in 2015 which contains four tracks: "She’s Kinda Hot - Alternative Version", "Broken Pieces", "Over And Out", and "Lost In Reality".
