You can’t ask us about our favorite music without hearing about the awesomeness of One Direction and we’re guessing a lot of you are the same way. But have you ever wondered what 1D says when people ask them about their fave music?

After being crowned Billboard magazine’s Top New Artist in 2012, a few of the boys of One Direction dished on their own personal music tastes.

“I actually get a lot of music from my sister, who’s into all these bands,” Harry admitted. “She’s been listening to and downloading stuff that I get from her. A lot of times suggested stuff comes on iTunes I’ll have a look at it, or the fans will send me things. But I’ve been listening to The Lumineers. I love their album and also Elvis Perkins, he’s great.”

Louis said that he “quite likes” American music!

“I’m a massive fan of The Fray, and The Killers,” Louis said. “I also like more acoustic stuff like Ed Sheeran, I like this English songwriter James Morrison and another singer called Ben Howard.

Niall also said he’s been getting into his American friends’ music tastes.

“We’ve been doing a lot of traveling in the States, and country music’s quite big over here, so I’ve been listening to a lot of that. It’s as big back home I’ve been listening to a lot of Lady Antebellum — I’m a big fan of them,” Niall said. “And I think The Script’s new album is really good. I like stuff that’s a bit more guitar-y. I’ve got my old favorites like The Eagles and Bon Jovi. Tonight I’m going to watch The Who at the Garden. I’m kind of an old ’80s ’90s rocker.”

    I LOVE Ed Sheeran! My favorite song of his is “The A Team.”
    The Script’s “Hall Of Fame” is great too. Being a baseball fan kind of has an influence on it. Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” is great. But 1D, no matter what you do throughout your career, us Directioners will be there for you, always.
