      Paramore is a relatively new emo band that has released multiple albums and received recognition for a few of their hit songs like “Crushcrushcrush” and “That’s What You Get”. A lot of their music is played in a retail store called Hollister and that is where a lot of teenagers first fell in love with their music.

      “Misery Business” is one of the more popular songs off of their album “Riot!”. It has such an upbeat sound for a song that is supposedly about revenge. The music video is at first very all over the place. Hayley and her band members are rocking out in a room with Riot! scribbled all over the walls in black, white, and red. Then,


      we go to a scene straight out of a high school, complete with cheerleaders and the “popular girl” strutting down the hallway. This music video has a sense of humor and a really happy feel to it even though the lyrics are all about how good it feels to get revenge. The popular girl does a bunch of mean things as she struts through the hallway, including cutting off a girl’s ponytail and pushing a guy with a broken arm into a locker. She also kisses another girl’s boyfriend. All of these acts of cruelty end with Paramore coming out into the hallway to face this girl. Although I won’t ruin it, the ending is hilarious. It makes you want ...

      • to cheer for Hayley for standing up to the mean girl.

        Overall, this is one of those music videos that does not have very much going on in it at all. Although I do like the sense of humor, the song, and the concept, I do not think that this will be a very popular music video because it is not that original or different from most others done in a high school setting. Unfortunately, it is easily forgettable in the midst of really artistic videos being put out these days by Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and other female recording artists.

        For such a hard sound, the lyrics and the visuals are light and fun and that is very refreshing. That might

        have something to do with the fact that Hayley Williams is a very devout Christian. With her fire-y red hair and rocker style, you might not expect it. It is wonderful to see someone who is so committed to their religion put out music like this. She is not trying to convert or to preach with her music yet has subtle references in other songs. She does not compromise her beliefs to be a singer. She just aims to try to make good music and I really do like that about her. With such an amazing voice, it is hard not to enjoy her music. I want to see more originality in her music videos, but I will definitely continue to buy her music.
