Paramore - Riot!

About Riot! by Paramore Album

Riot! is the second studio album from rock band Paramore, succeeding their debut album All We Know Is Falling, and was released in the United States on June 12, 2007 and in the United Kingdom on June 25, 2007. The album was certified platinum in July 2008 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and Gold in the UK and Ireland. Riot! produced 4 singles: "Misery Business", "Hallelujah", "Crushcrushcrush" and "That's What You Get". "Misery Business" is included in the video games Saints Row 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour (the latter featuring a computer-generated replica of lead vocalist Hayley Williams), while "That's What You Get" is a playable song on Rock Band 2. "Crushcrushcrush" is featured on Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades and is available as a downloadable track for play on both Rock Band games. A cover version of that song is also featured on the game Ultimate Band. The album was produced by David Bendeth. Lead vocalist Hayley Williams explained the album was called Riot! because "For us, the title ‘Riot!’ literally means an unbridled outburst of emotions. When we were writing, it seemed like our thoughts and emotions were coming out so fast that we couldn't control them. It felt like there was a riot within us. So the album takes our passion to a new level; it’s just all raw energy." The track "For a Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic" comes from what lead guitarist Josh Farro reflects as "putting your faith in someone and they blow it." Farro composed the song and gave the demo to Williams. Farro is known as saying "I wrote the music specifically to be awesome live and to be extremely energetic. It all came out at once. I showed it to Hayley and she just nailed it lyrically. She completely got the feeling I wanted the song to have." During production, Paramore held an online contest entitled "The Last Song You'll Ever Sing" where fans submitted videos on YouTube for the opportunity to sing back-up vocals on the track "Born for This". The winner was Mary Bonney of McLean, Virginia. On "That's What You Get", Steven from Steven's Untitled Rock Show is featured and is credited. The band asked him when he went to the studio. The album has yielded four singles, with "Misery Business" being the first. Its origins came from a message Williams posted on the band's Live Journal, asking fans to post what they're ashamed of. "I found that people really were reaching out to someone to spill their guts to," she recalls, "so I did the same thing lyrically in the song and let everything out. It's more honest than anything I've ever written, and the guys matched that emotion musically." The song became an instant hit, eventually receiving heavy rotation on MTV and other music television networks. The album's second single was "Hallelujah". As Williams recounts, "It's one of the oldest songs we've got, but we wanted to save it for this record, and it's the perfect home for it. It's a claim of victory for both ourselves and our fans." The album's third single was "Crushcrushcrush" and was released January 15, 2008, in the US and the January 23 in the UK. The album's fourth single, "That's What You Get", was released just over a week after Paramore canceled their European tour to work on "personal issues", amidst media speculation of the band breaking up. Williams explained that, given the fragile state of the band, they all thought it best if they kept the shoot low-key, surrounding themselves with their friends and family, keeping it simple. Williams added, "We had tons of friends there, and it really just felt like a hangout session. And Marcos [Siega, the director] was so cool about it. He said, 'Bring your friends.' We shot it in some of our friends' houses, and it just felt so real... and I think it's the first time in a video you're gonna get to see who we really are." The track "Born for This" contains elements from the song "Liberation Frequency" taken from the album The Shape of Punk to Come by the influential Swedish hardcore band Refused.

- The Mystery of Misery Business

I’m reviewing this as 1 so that this could be brought to someone’s attention. Not only was my copy of the Misery Business Music Video taken (that oddly enough isn’t even on the store anymore) and all of Riot! Was removed from my phone. And I can’t even redownload it! It wants me to pay AGAIN. Absolutely upsetting. Worst part is, I don’t have the same email as I used to, so now I can’t even show my receipt for it. It’s a shame.. but I’m not buying it again.

- Amazing

So good

Paramore at its best. All of Paramore is good, but nothing they put out will top RIOT! My favorite songs- Misery Business, Let The Flames Begin, When It Rains, For a Pessimist, Thats What You Get, We Are Broken, Hallelujah, Born For This. Every song on this album is great though.

- Riot! [•~•]

And when it rains ... ❤️'


This album is the best thing like ever. God has blessed Hayley with with such raw and pure talent. Her voice is so naturally perfect! The songs are amazing my recommendations are, Misery Business, That's What You Get, Hallelujah, and Let The Flames Begin, We are Broken, and Fences. If someone doesn't like Paramore they have serious problems, like they need medication, problems. Paramore is my favorite band and Riot is my favorite album of their's, buy songs, don't give it a second thought, trust me! I like every single song on this album and I have every single song on this album. Buy this now!!


Love love love this album! By far my favorite of Paramore!!

- Riot!

This has to be my favorite Paramore album ever! I highly recommend it! My favorite song is Misery Business. The new album Paramore is SO different. Riot! Is my favorite album ever!

- Better than their newest album!

What I loved about Paramore was that they were punk not this pop crap that they are now! Panic at the disco's going the same way too. A true alternative bank is actually not alternative but punk rock. This is when they were truly at their best!

- 😀

Literally Paramore at their best. Wish their new album was more like this.

- Get it asap ^_^

Since my sister purchased one of the songs back in 2009, I loved it, but I never realized how good the rest of the songs were and now I'm addicted :> get it!

- GOD What Is It About Hayley Williams??????????????????

She Has Cyndi Lauper Hair And Avril Lavigne Attitude! But Hey Hayley Williams Has A Jene Se Quois That's All Her Own And Ultimately That Helped Shape Paramore To The Band The Are! Riot Is They're Apex In Albums! Misery Buisness, Cush-Crush-Crush, When It Rains, And Let The Flames Begin Were Stellar As It Got! It's All Thanks To Hayley Opening That Voice or Hers. Have a Riot With This One!!!!!!!!!

- The best album

I love this album, it's the best one they have made. I play it all the time in my dorm and in my car. I love jamming out and acting wild while singing 👍😈😍❤️

- Paramore


- Classic

A classic album from when Paramore had their signature punk sound. This album was when they were in their prime! Very good.

- projectile vomiting

this album is so good I am pissing myself this is Paramore at its finest okay I am literally peeing myself someone find help I am going to start cutting my toes off one by one

- RIOT! for Paramore

Paramore is my favorite band ever. This is also probably their best album yet...Misery Business never gets old! This is a must-have rock album!

- This my favorite.

Paramore yet.

- Paramore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love riot so much I give every song on the album a 5/5 and a 99.99999999999999999999999999% this will always be the best album ever it got me in to Paramore and it got me in to pop punk and this albums Is an amazing piece of music and I love the album cover it's amazing

- Love it

Every song is great.

- Amazing

This is the first ever album that I bought where I’ve loved every track on the album, so if you were planning on buying the self-titled album, buy this album instead. I would do a track-by-track evaluation, but all the songs deserve 10s.

- I Love it. But....

Why Not they Create a Song Called "Riot"?

- Riot!

I think this is my favourite album by Paramore (I have all four albums). I love every song they have ever made but my favourites are mostly from here. Misery Business, Crushcrushcrush, For a Pessimist I'm pretty Optimistic, Fences, Hallelujah... They obviously put lots of time and effort into their music.


misery business caught me like😍😍😍😍

- Crushcrushcrush!

I dance competitively and my hip hop number was to Crushcrushcrush. I instantly fell in love with Paramore! I had heard some of their latest tracks like "Into You" and "Ain't it Fun" but when my dance teacher played this song, I was like, okay, they are really something special. And they are. They're great!

- Where's my hair mascara

Riot is definitely in my top five albums of all time. Paramore at their finest even though everything of theirs is great. My junior high self flares up every time I listen to these songs


the song Fences is my favorite in this album. This is seriously Paramores best album!!!!! Honest!

- ..

SERIOUSLY. how does one NOT like Misery Business?! personally I have other favorites on the album but MisBiz, Let the Flames Begin & Fences are on top. Paramore!⿲

- The true paramore

This is my favorite album and so is 'all we know is falling'. This is the true paramore. This is what you call good music.

- Awesome 💕

Paramore at their best. I wish they were still like this.

- Love it!

I love it and all of Paramores albums! Misery Buisness is sooo amazing!

- I like this. This is good


- When they weren't sellouts

As a very big fan of this group and of Hayley Williams, I was disappointed that the Farro brothers took such big shots at Hayley. The new album makes me regret everything bad I said about them. Riot was their best material, and the Farros were instrumental in its sound. Hayley is going to be heartbroken after she comes to her senses and sees what she did and how she sold out her favorite music to make money


I love Paramore so much! This album is so amazing, all the songs are so catchy and perfect! I recommend it to everyone!

- Love it!

Love this album, love this band

- Amazing

I'd never heard of this band until this album came out and my mom bought it. I listened to it everyday for about a year. Yea. It's that good. This is by far Paramore's greatest album.

- fave

one of my fave albums


This album is one of the best I've ever heard

- It's so nostalgic

I can't help but die a little on the inside when I listen to when it rains 😭 On another note, I wish stop this song was on the record. In my opinion, it's one of their best songs ever.

- I love Paramore

I've listened to them since junior high and they're great. My favourite songs are Born For This and Let the Flames Begin.

- Absolute perfection

There is no better album than this. Front to back, top to bottom it is an undeniable force that hands down remains to be my favourite album from any artist. Good luck trying to find a bad song in this bunch, because you won’t find any.

- Great

This album is pretty awesome. All the songs are great! Hayley's voice is amazing. Glad I bought this album! 👌

- I <3 Paramore

A mostly energetic pop-rock-alternative-punk album. Best songs: Fences, Born For This, When it Rains, That's What You Get, Misery Business.

- Great album!!!

I’ve heard so may people say this band is amazing! As my first time hearing this artist, Paramore does not disappoint!

- Love it !

Such an amazing voice!!

- Pure epic

Paramore is an amazing band and there type of music can be hard to find. Most rock songs don't have a very strong female lead but this band provided that. in every word of any song you can hear the emotions in the singers voice. I would reccomend this to anyone with a good ear for music and a large understanding of lyrics with meaning

- Perfection

Absolute perfection! Love every song on this album! Love the band and ADORE Hayley's voice <3


This album is just perfect, you can feel the rage in Hayley's voice and in the music in general. JUST.LOVE.IT Every song is worth the 38272672x listen I did.

- Amazing

I love this album and band so much.

- Timeless

- Best album by paramore

I have only followed paramore from when the single riot came out and I was glued to it! This was my first album I bought by them and although I own other albums this blows the others away! Truly amazing album by a great band. Even better seen them live :)

- Love it!

Will alway be my favourite album ever <3

- Fantastic

Best album ever by paramore. can't say a bas thing about it.

- Simply amazing

This, for me, is one of the best albums of all time. I like all different types of rock, from Stereophonics, to Beady Eye, to Manic Street Preachers. And I can say that this is right up there with any of those bands' best work. A great big release of energy, passion and sometimes sheer adrenaline. Only the last two tracks let it down for me to not give 5 stars. 'That's What You Get', 'When It Rains', 'Crushcrushcrush' and 'We are Broken' are some of my all-time favourite songs. Absolutely incredible and their new songs as a 3 piece are just as good

- Great Album

Paramore's best album by a mile

- Proper paramore

Better than any other album they have written, if you like the new album then you will like this. Why they released brand new eyes after this I will never understand, this album should've been followed by the newest one. They are also great live.

- Mint

Best album they've done!!

- I love Paramore

Fantastic album!

- Epic

Still love this album now:) One of the best ones I have ever listened to

- Still adore this..

...album, let the flames begin, when it rains, we are broken, misery business....need I say anymore

- Amazing

If not one of the best albums I have ever listened to. I will always love paramore.

- Great

'That's what you get' is a brilliant song, it's worth more than 59p! Great album.

Riot! Wiki

A riot () is a form of civil disorder commonly characterized by a group lashing out in a violent public disturbance against authority, property, or people. Riots typically involve destruction of property, public or private. The property targeted varies depending on the riot and the inclinations of those involved. Targets can include shops, cars, restaurants, state-owned institutions, and religious buildings.Riots often occur in reaction to a grievance or out of dissent. Historically, riots have occurred due to poverty, unemployment, poor living conditions, governmental oppression, taxation or conscription, conflicts between ethnic groups (race riot) or religions (sectarian violence, pogrom), the outcome of a sporting event (sports riot, football hooliganism) or frustration with legal channels through which to air grievances.While individuals may attempt to lead or control a riot, riots typically consist of disorganized groups that are frequently "chaotic and exhibit herd behavior." There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that riots are not irrational, herd-like behavior (sometimes called mob mentality), but actually follow inverted social norms.Dealing with riots is often a difficult task for police forces. They may use tear gas or CS gas to control rioters. Riot police may use less-than-lethal methods of control, such as shotguns that fire flexible baton rounds to injure or otherwise incapacitate rioters for easier arrest.
