Sunday marked the 10-year anniversary of Paramore's debut album, All We Know is Falling. We asked some of your favorite pop-punk bands to reflect on the recordTaking Back SundayA Day to RememberPVRISPierce the Veil to name a few— but the conversation surrounding the band's early days doesn't end there. 

The song that truly broke Paramore, "Misery Business," from their 2007 sophomore record Riot!, has been certified triple platinum.

Last month frontwoman Hayley Williams posted a blog post discussing the song's not-so-progressive lyrics, writing,

"Misery Business is not a set of lyrics that I relate to as a 26 year old woman. i haven’t related to it in a very long time. those words were written when i was 17… admittedly, from a very narrow-minded perspective. it wasn’t really meant to be this big philosophical statement about anything. it was quite literally a page in my diary about a singular moment i experienced as a high schooler."
