Unlike the One Direction Guys, These 6 Sets of Band Members Met in High School

By  | 

July 23, 2010, is a very important date for every diehard One Direction fan. On that fateful day, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles and Liam Payne went from being solo contestants on The X-Factor to being a part of a group. And while the 1D boys’ start was unique at the time, many other groups followed suit; Little Mix and Fifth Harmony were also X-Factor-manufactured ensembles!

But while the whole becoming a band on television thing is definitely getting more and more common, not all groups started out that way. In fact, some acts have known each other for-eh-ver, and others joined forces after navigating the craziness that is high school together. Seeing as HS is filled with memorable events and life-defining moments, it’s no wonder why the following groups have so many great, relatable songs. #FriendshipGoals, people. #FriendshipGoals
