It is near 12 years since 'Misery Business' was first released in the UK





It just charted in the UK at #31 back in 2007 and was then re-released in February 2008 where it peaked at #17.

this is still so anthemic, it's a shame they've cut it from their live set but i do understand that they must get tired of it - pretty much every paramore show since this was released has been closed with this, or it's at least been in the set as well but it's always a fan favourite as they usually get fans on stage to sing/play guitar for it. I'm hoping they make one of their newer songs that sort of live song as their gigs are always gonna feel like it's missing something. It's the same with Pressure, that used to be a staple as they'd do the "pressure flip" live where their old bassist would do a back flip over one of the guitarists whilst still playing but of course that stopped eventually once the line-up changed sad.gif

Thankfully they still did it live when I saw them, and that was probably my favourite moment of that night.

Apparently they aren't performing it live anymore because of this lyric:
QUOTE
Once a whore youíre nothing more, Iím sorry, thatíll never change.í


Which I understand because they are very much not a band who'd want to encourage a lyric like that but it's a shame because in the context of the song directed against a specific target it flows really well... and if necessary they could just have adjusted the lyric easily, hence I feel that you are right Lindsey in that they probably just want to rest it so that they can bring it back (with lyric changed) to glorious fanfare.

Because ultimately it's one of the best in their discography, and always has been. I've overplayed it to be perfectly honest but it really established the attitude of early Paramore and it's just rather glorious emo no matter the time and place. The band may have moved beyond it but it's a key part of their history.

tbh i don't even know if it's just that lyrics thats the issue or if they just feel quite disconnected to the song in general, Hayley's said they're not the same people they were when they wrote that so it's probably just that, which I get. Hayley got so much backlash for that lyric when she wrote it when she was in high school, yet even bands like panic of the disco use similar terminology in their songs and nobody bats an eyelid rolleyes.gif
