Like the Grateful Dead, most people associate Phish with drugs. In fact, substances are easier to come by in the parking lots of Phish shows than tie-dyed shirts.

Murder? Mayhem? No. Just two of the hottest boy bands in the world and their most painfully vocal fans. August 1st marked the beginning of the North American leg of One Direction’s “Where We Are” tour with opener 5 Seconds of Summer, the Australian pop punk band with an equal knack for causing those high-pitched shrieks only teenage girls can make (Harry Styles allegedly cured a girl of laryngitis earlier this year after not speaking for six months because her need to squeal was that powerful). ...
