One Direction (commonly initialized as 1D) is a British-Irish BoyBand formed in London, England. Originally, the boys auditioned for the seventh series of ''Series/TheXFactor'' as individuals. They were assembled into a group by Simon Cowell, who became their mentor throughout the show. After placing third, Cowell signed One Direction to his own record label in 2010. Since then, the band has skyrocketed to worldwide fame, releasing many hit singles, winning numerous awards, and unseating Music/JustinBieber as the biggest teen heartthrobs in the world. After five years of world domination, 1D have become the most successful boy band to ever come out of either the UK or Ireland[[note]]Not counting, of course, Music/TheBeatles, whose status as a boy band is highly disputed[[/note]].

** ''Four'' (2014) - 1D's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fourth]] album. Like the previous one, it set a record for its number one debut and had the no-longer-boys Main/GrowingTheBeard.
** ''Made In The AM'' (2015) Despite this being the band's fifth album in as many years, it is their first as a quartet, as a result of Zayn Malik's departure in March 2015. In accordance with ''Four'', this album completes the Main/GenreShift from teen pop to a more rock-oriented style. Also, it is the first album not to go #1 on the Billboard 200, having been blocked by Music/JustinBieber's ''Purpose''.

** Actually most of their songs could be interpreted as this (especially "Live While We're Young" with its "get some" lyric). They may as well call themselves GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The Band.

* {{Irony}}: The band's SignatureSong is "What Makes You Beautiful", which has the lines "don't need makeup to cover up, being the way that you are is enough" and One Direction once released a line of makeup.

* SpearCounterpart: To Music/FifthHarmony, since they both have 5 members (or at least did until Zayn left) and they both started out on The X Factor (the former in the US version, the latter in the UK version). They both consisted of five solo artists who were put into a group after getting rejected, they both finished third, and they have similar shorthand names (5H and 1D). One member of each group (Zayn & Camila) left the band in their fourth year. The only differences is that 5H is American, and they have a more 'urban' bend while 1D is closer to adult contemporary.
** As of Zayn's departure, they are also this to Music/LittleMix - both British, both 4-member groups, both also on the UK X Factor -- although Little Mix won their series and 1D didn't. Ironically, Zayn was engaged to Perrie before quitting the band.
* TitleTrack: The song "Up All Night" from their debut album and "Midnight Memories" from their third album are examples of this. ''Take Me Home'' subverts this, but a title drop can be found in "Kiss You."

'''One Direction''' (commonly initialized as '''1D''') is a British-Irish BoyBand formed in London, England. Originally, the boys auditioned for the seventh series of ''Series/TheXFactor'' as individuals. They were assembled into a group by Simon Cowell, who became their mentor throughout the show. After placing third, Cowell signed One Direction to his own record label in 2010. Since then, the band has skyrocketed to worldwide fame, releasing many hit singles, winning numerous awards, and unseating Music/JustinBieber as the biggest teen heartthrobs in the world. After five years of world domination, 1D have become the most successful boy band to ever come out of either the UK or Ireland[[note]]Not counting, of course, Music/TheBeatles, whose status as a boy band is highly disputed[[/note]].
