For me, it was discovering Panic! at the Disco - and they both share a lot of fans. So I listened to Paramore as well.

I also remembering hearing Still Into You on the radio which really drew me towards them.

How about you?

I'd heard a lot of their Riot! singles just on music channels or the radio or whatever but I never really got into their music properly until I listened to Brand New Eyes in full and that was a result of stealing it from my brother. He went through a weird phase for about 5 mins where he was into Green Day, Paramore etc because it was what his friends were into and I was curious about that genre as well I suppose as before then I was very pop orientated. As soon as I heard that album though I was hooked and would just listen to it on loop constantly, then naturally I worked my way backwards through their discography

I think it was The Only Exception for me that really did it for me, I definitely liked Misery Business at the time as I remember it having it on my old slide-up Samsung phone but I think Ignorance passed me by at first somehow. TOE was obviously a fair sized hit and I think early 2010 or so was my peak of chart obsession. I got Brand New Eyes from that and loved and the rest is history! Obviously TOE is really not a great representation of them but I think that coupled with Misery Business showed different sides and intrigued me enough.

The release of Misery Business in 2007! I was at college at the time, my friends were obsessed with the song, so I heard it & loved it. I ended up downloading Riot! wub.gif

Had it not been for my friends I’m not convinced I’d have checked it out by myself, because Paramore wasn’t exactly in line with the sort of artists and genres I liked.

Some girls at my school were really into them so I would hear them in the corridors, and then some of the guys liked Hayley too. I liked them a bit too but I didn't really become a fan until self-titled which is bang up my street :')

Well my earliest memory of them is seeing their music videos on MTV, primarily Misery Business, Crushcrushcrush and That's What You Get. Each one I liked more than the last, and That's What You Get won me over big time.

I think it was actually when an old friend sent me 'Emergency' over MSN Messenger (!) back in 2007 or so, and it remains my favourite song of theirs.

My sister used to play RIOT a lot in her bedroom, but it wasn’t until the Brand New Eyes era I started getting fully onboard with them

Tbh Still Into You was when I first took actual notice of the band, I’d heard plenty of their singles before that but their self titled era was where I became an actual fan!

I've got to be honest I hadn't actually heard of Paramore until I joined Buzzjack :') I wasn't particularly into popular music between 2010-2013 and before that I only heard what was on XFM, so I might have heard some Paramore but certainly nothing that sticks in my head! I quickly learned a lot about them when I became a regular on here though wink.gif

I actually struggle to remember. I THINK it was going through a period where Playing God was being played over and over on Radio 1 and in truth I didn't like it that much then (ironically it's now my favourite on Brand New Eyes, which is because I actually paid attention to the lyrics). I remember seeing it hadn't done anything in the charts which was really confusing given how much I'd heard it.

Then I started coming across them more and more and began slowly falling in love with their style the more I heard of them. Like it was pop but it sounded so COOL (to my teenage self). Went full on loon in around 2011 not long after I joined here and started properly linking their track names with great rock tracks.

Yes this means I completely missed out on Riot at the time but to be fair for me back in 2007, you'd have been lucky to get me to know who Rihanna was.

It was 2016 when I was on here and noticed it had a small (but passionate) fan base and I just thought why not. I only liked (or more accurately come across) Still Into You and I kinda got the hype. The genre really started to resonate with me in the sense that it gave me "energy" as well as a more emotional connection with the lyrics. So Paramore was basically my "gateway drug" to pop rock laugh.gif
