"Okay number one I'm 21yrs old and I love Paramore. All those haters that are giving Paramore bad reviews are old people(50+) who think that the Beatles are still alive or think that Prince is a good artist(Prince totally sucks).
This is now, stop trying to compare old farts who can't sing anymore if their lives depended on it(such as the Eagles who are nowhere near as good as they used to be)
Okay the Eagles were only good thirty years ago. As for one of those people that think that I'd be ashamed to say I listen to Paramore ten years from now, I will never be ashamed, I'd be more ashamed if I never even heard of the powerhouse known as Paramore. Sex Pistols, okay if they really were that great, they would still be a band, or at least would have more than a few albums(I do like them though).
If you want to know a really time tested band listen to R.E.M. they are definitely one of the best bands in this century. Anyway, I can't tell you how many times I've loved listening to Paramore at the end of my shift at work, just listening to their upbeat jams and powerful songs helps keep me awake and always puts a BIG smile on my face. Okay they don't have the best lyrics in the world but who cares, they FRIGGIN ROCK. When was the last time a band with a female lead singer rocked this hard?
Avril Lavigne doesn't count, she's a solo artist. Flyleaf is the only band I know of apart from Paramore with a pint sized female powerhouse. There really are not a whole lot of bands like Paramore, I don't get where those old people think that they've heard this kind of music before. You just can't put Paramore in the same group as Fall Out Boy, MCR, and Evanescence. Paramore is very unique, and if there is one amazing thing about them, it's their music videos! In a time when music videos lately are among the most horrid P.O.S.(due to the stupid rap videos on MTV that only feature half naked women and neon lights) Paramore comes through with some really amazing music videos(Or at least their producers).
Brick by Boring Brick is one of the best music videos I've ever seen, it sticks very close to the meaning of the song and adds a nice Alice in Wonderland kind of touch to the music world that you just do not see these days.
Let's All Riot for Paramore!

"This album is definitely full of energy (even the "slow ballad" We Are Broken has energy to it) and it's easy to see why the band decided to name it Riot. The entire album is basically a huge riot against love, high school drama, and corporations. It's definitely a bit of a different feel from All We Know Is Falling, especially in terms of the energy in the music, and I absolutely recommend buying this album."
