Has that "bad boy rock" quality just like The Beastie Boys' "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)"

And "Best Song Ever"

Although disputed by fans, DOES have an intro quite similar to The Who's "Baba O'riley"

Regardless of the similarities to other songs, I think this album is One Direction's best. Keep the Rock n Roll alive, guys!
