the most emotional and beautiful song of this amazing band, definitely! should be higher up on the list, this song came into my heart deeply, love it!
Such a sweet ballad. It is so different from their usual type, and yet, it is just proof that they can carry off soft music quite as well.
Amazing song Can't get it out of my head! Definitely should be voted to the top three!

7That's What You Get
That's what you get is first favorite paramore song, it has a good lyrics, beautiful melody and great vocal. This song make me want to hear it again, again and again...
and everyone that hear this song should be like me.. PARAMORE NO 1...
I first heard this song on rock band 2 and I loved it its one of my favs!
This is still on of my favorite songs ever! Paramore is one of my favorite bands! This song should be all the way at the top! I love Paramore! Haley has a amazing voice!
[Newest]This one should be in the top five for sure better then ignorance.

8Still Into You
This song may be Poppy and different for the band but its definitely the catchiest paramore song ever and it has relatable lyrics and great electronic flourishes. Hayleys vocals are flawless and taylor made the cathiest guitar riff ever! This track screams summer and has been a HUGE para-HIT!
40? Are you serious guys? This is Still Into You! The best Paramore song ever so far! New Paramore withpop music sounds. It's a adorable & fun song. I'm feeling like tasting a sweet candy when I'm listen to this song. It should be at least Top 5! I'm still into you, Paramore!
A decent pop song. But Paramore shouldn't be making decent pop, they should still be making great pop-punk like they used to! :(
Can't believe this is only number 27! This song is like totally awesome! Hayley Williams is an amazing singer! I love Paramore forever! I thought some of their newer stuff was a bit too pop like but this song changed my mind for good! It's my new favourite song! My mom however hates it! Lolz!
[Newest].. this song is VERY UNIQUE that's why I LOVE it!

this song just show everyone that even without the ex members they still can be an amazing band. hayley looks so amazing in this video
Dude I can't get this song out of my head! I love it its still reeally good even without the other members.
This song is amazing! Still amazing with the new lineup. Hayley has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard.
[Newest]I like this song because the tempo and beat are so different it's addicting!

10Playing God
its one of the most underrated songs here! just give it a go and listen to it, its way better than the others imo.
This song is totally underrated.. I bet that this song can make the top three if you guys feel the lyrics and enjoy the beat.. The song is quite something..
One of the most inspiring songs I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. One for those who truly believe in themselves and their power. Absolutely powerful lyrics that will change the way you think.
[Newest]This has got to be my SECOND favorite song from Paramore, this is a great song! There are not even words to to describe this amazing song. My favorite is Ignorance, but this is such an underrated song, it is SO good!

The Contenders

This list says "Best" not "Most Popular. " Therefore, Careful should be higher than Misery Business. Careful is an amazing song, and deserves a higher spot on the list. It's a shame that most of the songs listed, with the highest ranks, are very popular singles. Usually the best songs are not the most popular ones.
great song from their new album


Beautiful Vocals, perfect instrumentation- Everything you've come to expect from Paramore.
[Newest]These lyrics are just amazing. Better than Miz Biz in my opinion.

12My Heart
my absolute favorite song (not just of Paramore, but as a song in general) for almost 6 years now.
I'm so not a fan of rock music much, but the first time I heard this song, it's got me converted! It's so... Passionate. There's no better word to describe it. Passionate. She sings, they play, and even he screams with passion. It actually makes you feel the essence of the song. One of their best song ever, in my opinion!
The last 10 of this song is the best piece of music I've heard. I like it so much that it hurts! The music, the vocals, everything is just so emotionally sculptured.
[Newest]A song that makes cry, another one

13Ain't It Fun
To be honest, I had almost given up on Paramore and their new music. And this is coming from someone who practically worshiped them. But when I heard this song, they revived my faith. This song shows just how much more mature they've become in their lyric quality and music dynamics. The perfect song to just dance around to and smile like an idiot. They never seize to amaze me.
Love Paramore A lot and this song is Very Unique To say the Least it better get higher on the List!

Ain't it Fun Living in the Real World!


This is my all time favorite song this song is so good that I can't even express it in words this should be the number 1 song of all time oh and I am so obsessed with paramore and ever one of there albums as of right now my favorite album of all time is paramore self tilted album its an amazing album I idolize Paramore and hayley willisams paramore and hayley williams are my idol and I'm an 18 year old boy
[Newest]Isn't this that overplayed song you hear on the radio all the time?

14Let the Flames Begin
One of those songs that you play obsessively on repeat...


Absolutely in love with the final riot! version, it's AMAZING.
How the hell is this number 10? I would've gone for 1 or 2. I am absolutely in love with the final riot! version, it's AMAZING. But, all of these are good songs
[Newest]The live version is so amazing, the little bit she adds live gives me chills every time.

15Born for This
An absolutely EPIC song
Great instruments and vocals! Pretty epic song!


Yea...! This song should @ least be in the top 5..! This is crazy!... Anyway.. I really love this song.. The music just cheers up my mood..!
[Newest]My favorite song, this song means so much to me. It's ever better that it's on riot my favourite paramore era and album. I miss the riot era.

Great amazing song! With Great vocals and awesome beat! Has great Ry-theme and chemistry! This song is off the charts! definitely should be number 1!


This song connects with you directly and drags you along the song. It leaves the sensation that you need more and more, and next thing you now is you're addicted to this song. Absolutely my favorite!
This is the song that got me into Paramore. Amazing guitar and chorus. I don't know how anyone could dislike this song. I'm typing at this point to max out the comment quality bar.
[Newest]I love this song so much! Can't believe this is #16.

17Turn It Off
One of the best songs from Brand New Eyes. Very underrated.


It's so sad how people don't notice this song. I've been looking for this, scrolling down to vote and what do I see? 26th place! What?! What has happened to the world?
Bottom line is this is my FAVORITE damn song from Paramore and words cannot express my anger for its degrading.
People who don't know this song are sad.
It's the type of song you can live off.
I don't feel like typing anymore because this just got me pissed off.
Amazing song for when you're down
Has an awesome build up and the emotion is actually amazing.
One of my favourite songs of all time.
[Newest]Feeling down? This is the song for you.

For Me This Song Is The Best. Hayley Williams Is Cute In This Video :3 This Song Should Be In One Of The Top 3 Songs... People Should Vote This Song To The 1st... Anyone Agree?
Amazing lyrics, my favourite Paramore song without doubt. The song is just too powerful
This song is definitely one of my favorite songs ever. I just can't get enough of it. It's one of those songs that I can listen to whatever the life situation is. Beautiful and emotional.
[Newest]Emergency deserves to be alive. Deserves to be number 1.

19Part II
I love Paramore! I have loved them for quite some time now, which is difficult considering how fickle I am when it comes to music, I will ultimately ALWAYS eventually bore of a song. Part II is just the most fantastic composition. Lyrically it's not genius but it works for me. I love this song so much I've lost count of the times I've lost count of the times I've listened to it. I NEVER bore of this.
I love this song, I could listen to it all day! The instrumental section near the end of the song just makes it even better. I love Paramore!
Part II of Let The Flames Begin, which already deserves to be in the top 3. This song deserves number 1 spot for sure! Best song they've ever written!
[Newest]I really don't believe that this song is in 22th place!

I love their new song. A little bit different than their other songs, but still PERFECT!


It one of Paramore's song for their new album, it really inspiring and different
I love now! One of my favourite songs of there's
[Newest]Great song! It is a change of style compared to the other songs on the album, but it still one of their best songs.

21For a Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic
I can't describe what I feel while I hear this, but it has helped me a lot, best band ever... and my fav from riot!
20th place? Seriously. Anyway they're the best!
I like this reef.. Lolz and The instrument are good.. :D
"I never wanted to say this...
"Just Threw It Away"...
[Newest]This is my favorite song no doubt it will always be my favorite paramore song I can't believe it is #18, this should be at least, #11

I can't believe that this isn't on the list! Easily one of their best songs.
This song is so underrated! From the powerful guitar rift to Hayley's amazing vocals, Hallelujah is one of the best Paramore songs, not the 28th best.
If you don't think this is one of the best songs, you are not a Paramore fan. Anyone with any knowledge of Paramore and their other songs would know that this song is GREAT.

23When It Rains
Somehow, I don't see how this is number 19. Such a beautiful song with powerful lyrics!
When it rains is my favourite song by paramore. Most people don't realise or understand the meaning behind the lyrics, but it really is amazing.
Why is this song number 19? It is so gorgeous and moves me every time I hear it. It made me cry the first time I heard it. Amazingly beautiful
[Newest]This should be in the top 5

24Misguided Ghosts
Love this song its not top ten but should be higher up! It reminds me a lot of Only Exception. Lovely ballad...
This is actually my favorite Paramore song. Since most of Paramore's songs are more upbeat I see why it's 22 but this song made me listen closer to slow songs that I used to skip because they are the ones with the most meaning, usually.
WHAT? This one should be the number one are you kidding?
Awesome lyrics, beautifull melody... Damn can't believe it


[Newest]IT's a song that's helped me through a lot

25All I Wanted
How come no one is commenting on this song? I LOVE IT! It starts off so slow and then gets really intense when the guitar solo comes into the middle. Plus, Hayley shows off terrific vocal range.
SO INTENSE! I think this is the most powerful song that Paramore have ever created by far! The reason this song isn't far more known or popular is because Hayley can't perform this one due to the extremely high pitches and if she did, it would risk damaging her voice. The PURE solo in the middle 'ALL I WANTED WAS YOU' shows that Hayley is a TRUE singer that doesn't need editing, overly used beats or anything to change her voice.
My favourite band to the end.
This song should be number one, great music, great voice, great song! Paramore shows in this song all their abilities! They are just great! Love this song!
[Newest]Way too underrated. This song is just so powerful yet calming at the same time. The lyrics, instruments, vocals are all great

I think this song is definitely the best for all of the pressured teenagers in the world... and we all know there are MANY!
I'm super surprised their hit single from the debut album isn't even in the top ten! I love this song to pieces. Not to mention the "pressure flip" in concert that Josh and Jeremy would do!
I can't believe this song is so low... I like all songs of paramore as it is my favourite band but still this song deserve higher rank... I agree with the ranking only this song deserve little high ranking... Just listen to it once... Songs of there first Album all we know is falling are not voted very much... But I love this album just listen to this album.. This album is with best lyric...
I don't know why josh farro and his brother left paramore... They both were my favourites =(
[Newest]This song should be a lot higher on the list as well One of the best.

How can this be so low? Its an amazing song, though maybe because its not officially listed on any album, a lot of people haven't heard it. But listen to it, its awesome
This song takes me to the place I'd want to be, is awesome, in my opinion BEST SONG EVER! Hayley sings meaningful lyrics with that godess voice she has, guitar solos makes me speechless, the drummer is so energetic and talented, you can barely notice the bass if you can't recognize it, but Jeremy is a BOSS at it. What else can I say? I want this song to play in my funeral and in my last days of life
Come on! This song is just awesome! And I'm not even a paramore fan (not that I don't like them or anything, I just haven't heard them that much). the guitar in the background during the chorus is just amazing!
[Newest]This song reminds me of a lot of fake friends I have had

This song is new but its better than monster in my opinion, best post Farro brothers song
This song is kinda underrated. I think it should have been higher considering the wonderful lyrics and awesome melody
[Newest]Best Song of Paramore.

29I Caught Myself
What!? How is this not in the top 10!? This is like as good as Decode and Decode is easily number one! How is Misery Business at number 1!? I bet most of you so called Paramore fans have never listened to this song, pathetic.
This is by far their best song lyrically, how on earth this isn't at least top 20 I have no idea
Why is this song isn't in the top 10? This song must be top 6 with only exception
[Newest]Really 29 needs to be at least 15

30Last Hope
No way this is at 47 it should in top 20 at least the lyrics are great and the tune is amazing. I think this album is their best so far so come on people vote!
Hm. I think this is just not a popular list. But most probably new songs shall be up there on top 20, they just need more votes. Last Hope is my favorite off their fourth album. Filled with emotions. Just great. This deserves to be on top too.
Wow. 38th!? Really? The lyrics alone are top 10 at least. And the whole sound of the song fits together, perfectly reflecting the lyrics.
[Newest]Best song ever! Its powerful, strong and emotive!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? WHY IS ANKLEBITERS NOT IN THE TOP...1! It's like the best song ever, and really has a strong connection to the band, themselves, and it's just so TRUE. This makes you feel good about yourself when you've just been put down, and it has the best guitars, drumming, and vocals out of all of their songs, definitely. So, again THIS SONG DESERVES TO BE NO. 1!
To be's better than Misery Business. *runs away*
One of the best songs ever by paramore! Their new album is amazing despite some criticism, and it full of amazing music. This song shows just to do what you love and live YOUR life. It's so inspirational. I LOVE PARAMORE
[Newest]It's my tune, this song is me,

32Hello Cold World
This is a different style for paramore, give them a chance it's a new direction and the lyrics are awesome, if you listen to it every day you'll see you will like it.
Lyrics very meaningful and the tune was very beautiful
She brings out her real self in this song like she always does but you seem to hear more of it

33We Are Broken
Why does nobody like this song? It's better on record mind you but it's so political and meaningful.
I love the way this song sounds. How is it not in the top tens?
My favorite Paramore. Never get sick of it!
[Newest]Amazing song, highlight of paramore's career

34Fast In My Car
Fast In My Car is number 25? Really? This song deserves to be in the Top Ten! Paramore is reborn now. It's about time that we finally started looking ahead along with Paramore, like good Paramore fans do! I say that this song at least be number 4. It's about looking ahead and moving on from the past, so lets follow Paramore on their journey.
This is an awesome song
This song is awesome and deserves to be in the top ten

35Grow Up
This was my first Paramore song and I'm pretty disappointed it's not getting the attention it deserves.
Some of Us have to Grow Up Sometimes!


My favorite song from the new album!
[Newest]50? Why? This song is amazing.

36Where the Lines Overlap
great song with great tune and just makes you feel good
I just love this song so much! It's got great lyrics that I love and the music is really good too. I think this is one of the songs that Hayley Williams really tried hard in, because it really brings out what a great and talented musician she is. Also, the rest of the band comes together, literally, around the end all singing, "I've got a feeling, " and those are the parts of songs that I love a lot. I don't know why, but those types of songs make me feel good.
22nd?! Should be in the top ten!

I can't believe this song is 47th! Me and my friends absolutely love this song! Thumbs up. Deserves to be in TOP 20 AT LEAST, TOP 5 for me.
I think every paramore fan has to listen to this at least twice. This deserves to be #1, I swear.
This songis so awesome, I just can't stop listening it!
It deserve to be in the top 10

This should be so much higher!
I think this song is epic: instruments are amazing
One of the best song I've ever heard, its amazing
[Newest]This song should be in the top ten it's amazing

39In the Mourning
It's new so I guess it makes sense that it doesn't have that much votes yet. It's a grief-stricken song about loss that tugs at my heartstrings. Absolutely beautiful lyrics, and so touching. It's a little country for Paramore which is amazing 'cause they're venturing out to other genres too. Plus Hayley's voice is so beautiful I even cried at the live version.
Lovely song... It made me cry at the very first instance...
This song is so beautiful and relatable and definitely deserves to be in the top ten. Definitely one of Paramore's most definitive and overall best works. Can't stop listening to it over and over again. Makes me emotional every time.
[Newest]Why is this not higher?! The connection I have with In The Mourning just makes me--ugh.

40Stop This Song (Lovesick Melody)
This song is so good... How is it at no. 38? It probably isn't that well-known! I recommend this song to anyone who wants to listen to more Paramore songs!
An emo-punk song... Great lyrics... This is n0t their best song but this should be on top 10


I love the ending to this song! Should be higher up

This song reminds me good times, and well, it's a good one to listen when you're down, perfect.

I always find myself humming the song absentmindedly. It's actually a pretty good, catchy song.

43All We Know
I just really love this whole album, it's a great album to listen to for ideas and when you're feeling particularly gloomy. Beautiful song.
I think this should be number one, my all time fave:L
What, 49? This is such a good song, its everything great about classic Paramore!


[Newest]How? This is the best song from them?


44Swim In Silence
I like this song whenever I'm tneed, makes me fall asleep

45My Hero
It's a good song. ^-^

46Throwing Punches

47Never Let This Go
Just listen to the guitar riff near the end of the song, I listen to this song just to hear that. Paramore's best guitar riff. Top 5 song imo.
Great lyrics and good vocals, but the amazing thing about this song is the great guitar riff near the end. I listen to this just to hear that. Top 10 easily.
This song makes me cry...
[Newest]This song is my life

Should b in the top ten... One of the best songs from paramore

49Be Alone
Paramore songs have always been relatable but this songs makes me feel like Paramore have been stalking me and reading the thoughts in my mind. Then they came up with this song which is basically my life

This is one of my favorite Paramore songs ever! Especially because there are so many emotions. And it's not even the lyrics that are so emotional but the music! It's so powerful
Are you kidding me? This song deserves way more higher rank dude. Awesome lyrics are so full of emotion. And don't get me started on the music. It is just do powerful and takes you along with it. I mean all their songs are great and up beat but this one is just of another level. It is like sooo unique.
I love this song! So bleak but passionate and optimistic at the same time. It's beautiful
[Newest]Absolutely beautiful and haunting. A masterpiece.

How is this not in the top 10? One of the best songs from the debut album and still one of my favourites. Vote!
Come on, why is this so underrated? One of the best songs from the first album.
I THIS SONG! How is it not up there ^? Its amazing, one of my total favorites by this band. I LOVE IT SO MUSCH! Paramore 4 ever. ROCK ON! Vote! (like I said, It is totally amazing)
[Newest]Eh what? One of their best songs and what is it doing in 52nd place?! Way too underrated.

52Here We Go Again
Seriously one of my faves! It's so fun. I like what it's about.
Ohh I love this song... I can't believe its so low... I love its music, lyrics, drum beats... Ita a 5 star song... I don't know why paramore 1 album all we know is falling is so underrated.. It has all amazing songs.. Pressure, conspiracy, my heart, all we know, whoa and many more... But brand new eyes is best album...
Just listen to this song...

I love singing this song. It's one of their energetic songs too.
When I first heard this song I found myself singing along, great memories

54Escape Route
, amazing song! Repeat, repeat, repeat!
Wish it was a single. probably the best song from the self titled era in my opinion
This song needs way more recognition.


Hayley's vocals is on point in this song and the guitar is great, bassline on point.
This is so underrated!

56Hello Hello
Why is this on #56?!
Why hasn't this gotten any votes?
This song is one of their best ones to be honest.

57Looking Up
Love This Song! It's Amaazing & One Of My Favourite Paramore Songs. It Should definitely Have More Votes!
This needs to be higher! People wake up!
My fave paramore song on brand new eyes era
[Newest]It's so catchy and fun!

58My Number One

59Long Distance Call
This song is amazing! I love all paramore songs but this should definitely be up there with the top 20

60Oh Star

61Native Tongue
This is a really good song

62You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)
An undiscovered gem from the Coal Miner's Daughter tribute album.

63Stay Away

64Sunday Bloody Sunday
This isn't a paramore song so shouldn't be on the list

65Stuck On You
It is a really sick melody! When you listen to this you are stuck on it. I am stuck on this song.
My fave paramore song

66Tell Me It's Okay
This song is full of emotions. I heard this everyday! Love it!

67Feeling Sorry
I can't believe this song on 46th position. This song is perfectly great
What is this song doing so low on the list? This song is probably one of the best tracks on the album, I LOVE THIS SONG.. Amazing lyrics and catchy tune. At least top 15
I keep scrolling down this list and am nearly in tears! Come on deserves a much higher place.
[Newest]It needs to be higher!

An amazing, underrated song. Give it a listen.
Some of the best paramore songs are the unreleased ones. I really wish this was on an album, I love it!
Pretty cool and catchy! 1

69(One of Those) Crazy Girls
Really unique Paramore song, it should be ranked higher
Yeah! I know! This must be ranked higher. just like let the flames begin, you want to play it on repeat.
Love this song, needs to be ranked in the top 20's. I love the lyrics, they get to my heart.
[Newest]This really needs to be number 1

This song makes me sigh, and wanna cry

71Hate to See Your Heart Break
This is without a doubt my favourite Paramore song. I can't believe I had to scroll so far down the page to find it. Yes it's softer but if you listen to it a few times you'll be hooked. Hayley's vocals are stunning on this track.
Strings are incredibly beautiful. Backup vocals (by Taylor? ) are great, and help support Hayley's sweet, smooth lead. I think the song is about Hayley comforting Taylor after a girl broke up with him.
Really beautiful. It might be my favorite paramore song. Very underrated. If more people heard this song I think it would be higher on the list.
[Newest]So fascinating and calming..

I am seriously angry that Conspiracy is in the bottom five. I have been obsessed with this song like crazy lately. It has an amazing beat once it gets to the chorus, the lyrics are deep, and the instrumental at the beginning makes it a perfect example of a paramore song.
My favourite song by them EVER how could it not be on this list?
[Newest]This song is amazing and is very underrated. True Paramore fans appreciate this song.

Does this count as a paramore song? I thought Hayley did this as a solo artist for the Jennifer's Body soundtrack. Good song though!
No one's even heard this song... -_-
This song is by hayley, not paramore

I totally love this song it is very good in both instrumental and with the voices. This song should be at least on the top twenty. Has great lyrics and is very VERY catchy, this is a heck of a song. One of my favorites! SO totally listen to it. Yay!
