{{Paramore}} are a PopPunk band currently made up of vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis (guitarist Josh Farro and his brother Zac, drums, left the band in December 18, 2010). Formed in 2002 in Franklin, Tennessee, Paramore first hit the scene with their debut album ''All We Know Is Falling'' in 2005; they have since released two further albums in 2007 (''Riot!'') and 2009 (''[[AllLowercaseLetters brand new eyes]]''). Their SelfTitledAlbum was released on April 9, 2013 to extremely favorable reviews.

Save for the addition of York, Paramore's main lineup has remained unchanged since the first album; however, Davis left for five months just after the band was signed and his departure formed the basis for much of the first album including the cover artwork and the album-naming ''All We Know''. Over the course of the next year, three singles were released from the first album - "Pressure", "Emergency" and the aforementioned "All We Know" - but none charted at the time of release. However, a constant stream of touring, including the renowned Warped Tour, brought the band a devoted fanbase and by the time ''Riot!'' was released in 2007 the media and people as a whole were beginning to recognize Paramore as a definite band to watch.

This new awareness was reflected in the success of the band's sophomore offering; although the album didn't exactly set the charts ablaze, it did enjoy some chart success largely off the back of leading single "Misery Business" (which also went platinum), and later went platinum in the US and gold across the globe. "Hallelujah", "crushcrushcrush" and "That's What You Get", while not quite hitting the same success, cemented the band's reputation.

In 2008, Paramore contributed two songs to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' soundtrack: "I Caught Myself" and lead single "Decode". In early 2009 they began writing and recording their third album, ''brand new eyes'', which was released at the end of September on the back of lead single "Ignorance". This album also gave birth to the singles "The Only Exception" (possibly their biggest hit to date,) "Monster," "Brick By Boring Brick," "Careful," and "Playing God." Josh and Zac Farro quit the band in December 2010, and the future of the group was in doubt until Williams and Davis announced that York had been made a permanent member and the three of them would continue on as a trio with touring members for live shows.

Their fourth album, ''Paramore'', was released on April 9, 2013. The album appears set to become the band's breakthrough, garnering rave reviews and becoming their first to chart at #1 on the Billboard 200. Not to mentioning spawning perhaps their biggest hit yet with "Still Into You." "Ain't It Fun" also performed well on the charts, and two other singles, "Now," and "Anklebiters," have been released.

* ''Brand New Eyes'' (2009)
* ''Paramore'' (2013)

!!Relevant tropes:

* {{Adorkable}}:
** Hayley. Watch any interview or video where she is happy or upbeat for proof, or read her twitter posts. Due to her size and energy, it may also cross into {{Moe}} territory.
** The whole band is pretty adorkable frolicking around in the video for "Still Into You."
** Even more so in the video for "Ain't It Fun".
* AnachronicOrder: "crushcrushcrush", to an extreme (the song has a narrative, but it's completely shattered)
* AudienceParticipationSong: "Whoa", "My Heart" and "Where The Lines Overlap".
* AttentionWhore: "Where The Lines Overlap" begins with the line "Give me attention, I need it now."
* BandOfRelatives: Two sets: the Farro brothers, who were co-founders and left in 2010; and the York brothers, current guitarist Taylor and tour member Justin.
* CatchPhrase: Judging from their Twitter feeds, 'Panties in a bunch' seems to be Hayley's catchphrase. She says it a lot, and we mean a LOT. Though, judging by some of her other feeds, she must seem to enjoy just saying the word 'panties' or 'pants'.
* CloudCuckoolander and possibly BunnyEarsLawyer: Hayley is downright odd at times in videos, and her Twitter posts may sometimes become insane rambling. Despite that, there's no denying that she is a talented singer.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The music video for "Brick by Boring Brick" becomes this starting at the bridge.
** "Part II" is described as more hopeless compared to "Let the Flames Begin" and is probably the darkest song on their newest album.
* DownerEnding: The end of "That's What You Get" may count as one depending on who you are, but its alternate ending would definitely count.
* EpicRocking: Future clocks in at 7:51.
* ExcitedShowTitle: ''Riot!''
* FakeOutFadeOut: "Future" has one of these.
* FantasyForbiddingFather: "Brick By Boring Brick" is from the perspective of one of these (or at least a concern-troll friend), portrayed ''positively''. The speaker insists that the subject's romantic views and love of fairy tales are keeping her deluded and prone to being taken advantage of.
* FieryRedhead: Hayley is best known for coloring her hair some form of red or orange, and her energy cements the "fiery" part.
* FollowTheLeader: Any similar-style rock band with a female vocalist will inevitably get compared to Paramore, two examples being Versaemerge and Hey Monday. This even applies to bands like Damone, who were active ''before'' Paramore ever recorded an album. (The fact that Hayley's voice sounds remarkably similar to that of Damone frontwoman Noelle [=LeBlanc=] does not help matters.)
* FracturedFairytale: "Brick By Boring Brick" would count.
* GreenEyedEpiphany: Discussed in "Misery Business"
* [[HugeGuyTinyGirl Two Huge Guys Tiny Girl]]: Hayley's about 5'2", Jeremy and Taylor are ''giants'' compared to her.
* IAmTheBand: It turns out that Hayley is the only signed member of Paramore, and the others are just a glorified backing band. Hayley appears not to like this setup, but it led to the schism in the band.
* LighterAndSofter: Their third album could arguably be this, especially with songs such as "The Only Exception" and "Misguided Ghosts". The fourth album definitely qualifies, as it's a fair bit poppier than the other three.
* LyricalDissonance: "Ain't It Fun" isn't about having fun, it's about a sad loner whom alienated their friends and can't deal with the real world...
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: for both ''Riot!'' and ''brand new eyes''.
* MetalScream: The end of "My Heart".
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually a pretty solid 4, with a few songs delving into 5 or 6 territory and others dropping to a 2 or 3.
* NotChristianRock: Hayley and several others of the band are Christians, but the music isn't necessarily what you'd call Christian music. Still, it's important enough to them that Hayley felt the need to apologize on her website for using God's name in vain in one of their songs.
* OperationJealousy: Invoked in "Misery Business".
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: "Ain't It Fun" is the music video with the most records broken, [[https://recordsetter.com/paramore all of which also enter the trope.]]
* PopPunk: Gradually became one of pop-punk's preeminent bands. So much so that they're one of the few bands of the style still lingering in the top 40. In fact, contemporaries like Music/FallOutBoy have expanded their palette to include more and more electronic sounds and ArenaRock tendencies, whereas Paramore have remained pretty true to their basic rock sound, which means Hayley stands out big time amongst Music/ArianaGrande and Music/KatyPerry.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: "(One Of Those) Crazy Girls" is from the perspective of one of these.
* RockStarSong: "Fences"
* SelfTitledAlbum: Their fourth studio album.
* ShoutOut: Paramore are, as with most '90s and '00s emo bands, big fans of HardcorePunk, to the point where "Born For This" is built around a big reference to "Liberation Frequency" by Refused.
* SillyLoveSongs: "Still Into You" is an upbeat, happy, straight-forward, "I love you" song, with an idealism not present in earlier songs.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: "Future" from the band's SelfTitledAlbum turns into [[MathRock mathy]] PostRock towards the end.
* SpiritualSuccessor: The band is trying very hard to make "In The Mourning" a "sequel" of sorts to Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide," going so far as to use the same guitar riff and melody. Hayley even interwove "Landslide" lyrics into this song during one of their concerts.
** And also, "Part II" on Paramore's fourth album is definitely one to "Let The Flames Begin".
* StudioChatter: At the end of "Anklebiters".
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: Where the heck did "Misguided Ghosts" come from? Also, "The Only Exception". And "Hate to See Your Heart Break" from the fourth album.
* TechnicianVsPerformer: In the video for "Still Into You," you have Hayley performing spontaneous seeming dance moves while surrounded by perfectly choreographed ballerinas.
* ThoseTwoGuys: The group is best known as Hayley Williams and those two guys.
* TitleOnlyChorus: Used a few times in ''brand new eyes''.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: "Ignorance" and "Playing God"
* TraumaticHaircut: The mean girl in the "Misery Business" video scissors the braid off one of her unfortunate classmates, to the classmate's dismay.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: The current set up. You have Taylor and Jeremy as the two guys, and Hayley as the girl. They have a few other touring-only members for live shows(most notably Ilan Rubin, former drummer for Lostprophets)
** RockTrio \ ThreePlusTwo: They're ''officially'' the former. But effectively the latter (for starters, they don't have a drummer, though Taylor did the percussion on the ''Singles Club'' series).
* VideoFullOfFilmClips: "Decode", although there is also a band-only version available.
