**** This would be an interesting interpretation, since the groups seem to be friends, with Awsten having on at least one occasion joined 5SOS on stage, but nonetheless remains possible


* BreakUpSong: Rare might be one.

* CarefulWithThatAxe: The last few verses of TANTRUM have Awsten shrieking his head off as he rants about about [[TakeThat injustices, double standards, and unoriginality in the music industry]] and how these have affected him alongside personal struggles.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Awesten can come off as this. If you read his tweets, he tweets IN ALL CAPS and tweets really out there and random ass things. He also really likes to swear in interviews, which can be funny when he wonders if he can swear in some of them and asks.


* BoyBand: Parodied in their music video for 'Stupid For You,' where half the video is in an alternate reality where they're a boy band instead of a regular band, as some bands like them have been called such in the past just because they're boys in a band, rather than being a group of boys making music. Such bands include: Music/{{Busted}}, Music/{{McFly}}, and Music/FiveSecondsOfSummer.

*** The more lax nature of 2010s Pop Punk, & other musical posers. [[http://lyrics.wikia.com/wiki/Waterparks:Little_Violence Read the lyrics yourself if you think I'm joking.]] Realistically, it can be seen as one huge take that to the current state of 2010s Pop Punk made by younger bands for all of these reasons.

* ContinuityNod: They have a song called, 'I'm a Natural Blue' (referring to the color Awsten used to dye his hair). The first actual line of 'Stupid For You,' Awsten sings, "You're yellow, I'm natural blue,' referencing the past song.

*** Made slightly funny when you realise that, upon being asked in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ag7HLQKjfE8 this interview]] which his favourite Main/OneDirection songs are, Awsten reels off a list which involves some of the lesser-known bonus tracks

** 'Stupid For You' on the same album drops it too


Waterparks is a PopPunk/Pop Rock band from Housten, Texas formed in 2011 by lead singer and guitarist, Awsten Knight, and ex-bassist Gage Matthieu, with Owen Marvin on drums, both of whom were eventually replaced with the two other members of their line up, Geoff Wigington on secondary guitar and Otto Wood on drums. They' released two independent EPs in 2012 and 2014 before signing with Equal Vision Records in late 2015 and releasing another EP and their first album. Their second album is due out in early 2018. They're still relatively unknown, but do show great promise to grow in popularity as they record and release more music.

* LampshadeHanging: In their cover of Green Day's 'Hitchin' A Ride', at the end, Awsten says, [[LastNoteHilarity "Wow, that's not as good as the original,"]] jabbing the people who'd say just that. You can look in the comments section of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3qMPiMTemU&index=38&list=PL0Cv84OTeDd5IClhnFY8WW2La_MmVcsPv this]] upload of the cover for proof on that. Could also double as a TakeThat, since their cover is still really good.

* PopPunk: Naturally, with influences ranging from Green Day to Music/FallOutBoy, to Music/Blink182, to Music/Sum41. However, they spice things up by mixing high-energy, Pop-leaning, fast-paced Punk jams with a healthy dose, and understanding, of electronics mixed into the songs. It's surprisingly well done.

** In the music video for 'Stupid For You,' half the video has them dressed and acting like they're in a BoyBand called "Parxboiz," while it's contrasted with them playing the song in real life as themselves. This can be seen as not only a slight against Boy Bands, but fellow 2010s Pop Punk bands appearing to be ones themselves due to their sounds, namely Music/FiveSecondsOfSummer, who often get mistaken for one even though they're not, though it's understandable through their sound and marketing set up. Half the video even looks like one from the initial Boy Band craze from the late-90s to the early-2000s.
