Song: One Direction's "Story Of My Life"

History: A long time ago, there were barber shop quartets, and then after that, the New Kids On The Block, and more recently five UK dudes were like, "We're One Direction" and they were a hit.

Atmospherics: Like the boys are suddenly really into Mumford & Sons. Or like they're starting their own nondenominational church.
