* RefrainFromAssuming: Zayn's "Pillowtalk" is not called "So We'll Piss Off the Neighbors", "Paradise" or "War Zone".

Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: The lyric 'fucking in, fighting on' in Zayn's solo "Pillowtalk" gave a shock to some One Direction fans, as well as separating Zayn's solo career from the fairly-clean image the band had.

* ''Up All Night'' (2011) - 1D's first album. Upon its U.S. release in March 2012, they became the first U.K. group to debut at #1 on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200 with a debut album.
* ''Take Me Home'' (2012) - One Direction are one of very few groups to have debuted at the top with both of their first two albums. Only GirlGroup Danity Kane and Eminem's rap troupe D12 have done so prior to them.
* ''Midnight Memories'' (2013) - One Direction became the first (and to date, only) group to debut atop the ''Billboard'' 200 with each of their first three albums. The last group to even ''reach'' the top with its first three albums were Music/TheMonkees in 1967.
* ''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''.

** ''Mind of Mine'' (2016) - The first solo album by Zayn. It debuted at #1 on the ''Billboard 200'', as did its lead single "Pillowtalk" on the ''Hot 100'' singles chart. "Pillowtalk" was the first time any 1D member reached the top of the ''Hot 100''.

** As of Zayn's departure, they are also be 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.

* DistaffCounterpart: Music/FifthHarmony, since they both have 5 members 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). The only differences is that 5H is American, and they have a more 'urban' bend while 1D is closer to adult contemporary.

Coincidentally, one of Little Mix's members (Perrie Edwards) was dating a 1D member for a few years; ironically, that member was Zayn.

'''One Direction''' (commonly initialized as '''1D''') is a British-Irish BoyBand formed in London, England. Originally auditioning for the seventh series of ''Series/TheXFactor'' as individuals, the members 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 word 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]].
