Alexander William Gaskarth: the man, the myth, the legend. 

It's Alex Gaskarth's birthday today, so we're celebrating a side of him that rarely gets the deserved credit.

Sure, we all know him as the charismatic frontman of All Time Low. But that's only one part of who he is. He's also a spectacular song writer- and he doesn't just use his songwriting skills for All Time Low. As it turns out, he's helped to pen a number of bangers. 

01. 'KISS ME KISS ME' - 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER
Full disclosure, there's set to be a handful of 5 Seconds Of Summer tracks on this list, but we're kicking it off with this bop.

02. 'WAY WITH WORDS' - WRECKS
The title says it all- Alex does have a way with words, especially in lyric form. 

03. 'SETTLE FOR LESS' - BEFORE YOU EXIT
This one was almost lost to time. While not available on streaming services, a dedicated Before You Exit fan has uploaded this 2014 banger to YouTube so that it lives to see another day.

04. 'CRIMINAL' - STATE CHAMPS
It's honestly 'Criminal' how good this song is.

05. 'LONG WAY HOME' - 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER
There's a handful more 5 Seconds Of Summer songs still to come too that Alex had a hand in penning.

06. 'GET OVER IT' - MCBUSTED
Ultimate pop supergroup McBusted recruited Alex for this one, and it's safe to say that we won't 'Get Over It'.

07. 'DISCONNECTED' - 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER
Alex' writing relationship with 5SOS goes way back, as this song proves.

08. 'THE FIX UP' - STATE CHAMPS
Another banger off State Champs' most recent album 'Living Proof'.

09. 'END UP HERE' - 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER
Hey guys, how did we 'End Up Here'? We're rounding out the list how we kicked it off, with another 5 Seconds Of Summer track.
