Stride told the Daily Star that the 'Famous' singers had rowed about their opinions on the group's promo for 'Choices'.
"We had a big argument about The Hoosiers' video for 'Choices' - the other guys don't like it, but I do," he said.
However, he went on to admit why The Hoosiers, who release their new album The Illusion Of Safety today, do irritate him.
He said: "The thing that annoys us about The Hoosiers is that they're funnier than us. People pit us against them but that's our main issue. We don't care if they're better-looking.
"We always used to pride ourselves on being funny and then they came along," he continued. "So we said, ‘Okay, we might not be the funniest men in pop anymore, let's be the nicest guys in pop'. And then JLS came along."
Stride wished the group "the best", adding: "They are really lovely guys and really passionate musicians, which sometimes people don't realise about pop bands."
