6 The Only Exception

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!

The most beautiful song~!

The catchiest paramore songs,definitely my favorite

8 Still 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!

Definitely my favorite Paramore song. The pop in it doesn't bother me that much, but the story and the beat... such a good song!

10 Ain'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! - Curti2594

MY GOD I Love this song - BreakFastBeast2005

The Contenders

11 Careful

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 - alltimelownerdd28

Beautiful Vocals, perfect instrumentation- Everything you've come to expect from Paramore.

Greatest song ever written

12 Emergency

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.

Love the song and video#diehard paramore fan

13 Playing 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.

Should be number 1or 2 because this is my favorite paramore song... I really think all of them should be number 1

14 Pressure

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 =(

15 Hard Times

Ugh cannot stop listening to this song!

I've heard so many bad pop songs in recent years that this feels refreshing to me!

Amazing song. I voted because it doesn't have much recognition.

I didn't like it the first I listened to it but eventually it has grown to me. Now, I'm addicted to it & I play this song nonstop all day! Try listening to this song in loop and you'll see <3. (Also, I found out that the lyrics are sad but they make it a happy tune and that's kind of amazing...)

16 Let the Flames Begin

One of those songs that you play obsessively on repeat... - Sammy

Absolutely in love with the final riot! version, it's AMAZING.

I honestly can't believe how low this song is ranked. 14 is just ridiculous. This song is EASILY without a doubt the best non-single Paramore has made, and personally I think it should be top 3 overall. It has great rhythm and build up to the chorus. The guitars and drums are just fantastic. Hayley shows off her great vocal range. The lyrics are deep and meaningful. What more can you want from a song?

My all time favorite paramore song (and probably my favorite song period).

17 All 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!

Such a beautiful song- Hayley's vocal performance is what does it for me. I love the buildup and the intensity it reaches before dying back down again. A true masterpiece; it's a shame they don't perform it live.

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! - jobanjo13

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.

The lyrics to this song are so amazing it also has a great rhythm to it. I have no idea why it's so low down on the list definitely should be in the top 3

19 When 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

This is the #1 best, not the #26th best.

20 Turn It Off

One of the best songs from Brand New Eyes. Very underrated. - Shadsilvson11

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.

This song is so underrated. It should be way at the top. Its by far my favourite song (and album, Brand New Eyes is the best), not just by Paramore, but in general. Its such a perfect song and I play it on repeat everyday. Their music is so passionate and Hayley's voice just makes me feel like everything is okay in the world. Not a single trouble, anywhere. This song is musically amazing. Helped me and so many others through tough times.

Brand New Eyes is my favourite Paramore album and this is my favourite Paramore song ever! I love her voice and when I feel sad, I just close my eyes and listen to this. It always makes me feel better. It has helped me through a lot of tough times and I never get sick of the chorus.

21 For 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!

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

This song is amazing! The lyrics, bass, rhythm, name! Its amazing and Paramore has really helped me through a lot

22 Rose Colored Boy

Why is this #53? IT IS AMAZING

such a bop

23 Misguided 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.

I feel like this song should at least be in the top ten. It has the best lyrics (in my opinion) and it shows the emotional side of Paramore. It kind of reminds me of Extreme's More Than Words. The impact of it, I mean.

My second favorite Paramore songs, proves that they can have slower songs and they’re still amazing. Paramore forever!

24 Hello 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

This song just pulls you in, you know? Definitely deserves a spot in the top 5. - twentyfirstpilot

25 Hallelujah

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.

This Song is Amazing! Best Paramore Song Ever for me!

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

Best Song of Paramore.

27 Future

50th place... Wow...
Eh, I suppose that makes sense, given that most of Paramore's fanbase are more open to Pop music rather than the lesser known genres.
I'd go almost as far as to call this song Post Rock, it has that sort of really vague Sigur Ros influence on it...
Anyway, that's really the only reason I like it as much as I do, it stands out in a good away amongst most of Paramore's songs.
It's also really long.
So that's cool, too.

32? This should be #1! It's such an amazing, heartfelt song, and was an amazing closer to self-titled! It's their longest song ever, and the lyrics are so deep. The song really hits you hard. This is, in my opinion, the greatest Paramore song of all time. - UltimateCraig

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.

This song did a complete 180 on me

29 Fake Happy

This song needs to be way higher! It's almost hauntingly beautiful. A great message that most people can relate to on top of a great beat. It's not only one of Paramore's best songs ever, but one of the overall best songs ever.

This is a beautiful song that need to be much higher up on this list!

30 Anklebiters

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

31 Daydreaming

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

This song is so underrated, I love this song because its different from other with its pop like genre should've be top 20.

It causes me great pain that Still Into You is the top song off of the self-titled album, and that this or Ain't It Fun isn't. This song is greatly underrated

32 Where 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!

33 (One of Those) Crazy Girls

Really unique Paramore song, it should be ranked higher

Love this song, needs to be ranked in the top 20's. I love the lyrics, they get to my heart.

Yeah! I know! This must be ranked higher. just like let the flames begin, you want to play it on repeat.

Can't stop listening to this song, it just makes me smile non stop. The lyrics are really fun and it's super unique. Doesn't sound like any other Paramore song. Deserves waaay better

34 Part II

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!

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.

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!

My favourite Paramore song by far! The instrumental towards the end of the song is just mesmerising! Turn off all the lights, lie down, close your eyes and listen to this song and I swear it'll put you in a trance. I love the lyrics too! 'Butterflies with broken wings' 'Scars left on my heart' 'Patterns on my mind' This song is amazing from start to finish!

35 Swim In Silence

I like this song whenever I'm tneed, makes me fall asleep

36 Feeling Sorry

I can't believe this song on 46th position. This song is perfectly great

41 really? I'd put this around number 10 for me. Considering it's from Brand New Eyes which had 11 songs (5 of which were singles) and this wasn't one of the singles, I can see how some people might overlook it. But if you actually listen to it, it is one of their catchiest songs without being poppy or cheesy.

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

You're days are numbered at 24

37 Throwing Punches

A seriously underrated song, like much of the "The B Sides," unheard by most fans. Some powerful lyrics
"You're so hateful sometimes, throwing punches lies, far from somewhere above, just to say you're in love"

38 Grudges
39 Stop 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 - Racetech

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

This is my favorite love song

40 My 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.

By far the best song by Paramore on the best album

Probably the saddest paramore song. - RandomPerson1234

42 Idle Worship
43 I 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

Really 29 needs to be at least 15

Such a unique song!

44 We are Broken

How on earth can this masterpiece be 34?! Are you guys deaf? This song is perfection, art, masterpiece... I'm speechless. No way this can be ranked so low. It should be at LEAST in the top 10... even though I'd dare to say top 5.

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?

No wayyy
Should be in top 5

Cause we are brokeeen
What must we do to restore
Our innocence and trouble we have caused
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole.. =, (

Unfortunately a song as good as this has been lowered to #38. Who knew Paramore's more underrated songs were very good too? - listotaku17

45 Conspiracy

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?

This is the best Paramore song I ever heard besides Decode, There is no way it should be this far away. The song is from start to finish Amazing. True classic. Emotions are all over it, Makes my skin crawl almost all the time.

It's a good song. Should be on the top 15 at least. - taufiq13

Eh what? One of their best songs and what is it doing in 52nd place?! Way too underrated.

An amazing, underrated song. Give it a listen.

Pretty cool and catchy! 1

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

Such a sad beautiful tragic song. I can't stop listening to it
