If you’re a fan of Paramore, you probably know that Riot! is one of their most rocking albums to date. With jams like ‘Misery Business’ and ‘crushcrushcrush’, and a heap of others, can you recall all their lyrics?
Although Paramore had an album under their belts already with All We Know Is Falling, their 2007 follow up album Riot! seems to be what really made Paramore such an influential band.
Released in the height of scene kid times, this album resonated with listeners, and drew an entire new fanbase in, as well. Released under Fueled by Ramen, the album was produced by David Benedeth, and written by the members of Paramore, themselves.
Riot! was a hit worldwide, receiving three gold certifications in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. It also went on to receive platinum in the U.K. and double platinum in the U.S..
Whichever way you look at it, Paramore’s second studio album definitely made a killing for them. From sold out tours and selling 42,000 albums in the first week of release alone, Riot! helped to shape pop punk music from the late ’00s.
Whether you jammed out to the main hits like ‘crushcrushcrush’ and ‘Misery Business’, or preferred some of the lesser known tracks like ‘Let The Flames Begin’ or ‘Born For This’, you can’t deny that the tracks from this album are pretty darn great.
Although Paramore has now retired ‘Misery Business’ from their live shows, that’s not stopping them from still holding their place in the music world. Only three years ago, they released their latest album After Laughter, and Hayley Williams has revealed that “there will be more Paramore shows” in the future.
So, can you recall the lyrics to one of their most beloved albums? Or, should you give it another listen before diving into our quiz?
