Riot! (Anniversary Edition) [Limited Silver]
You couldn’t get too far in the mid-2000s without experiencing the dulcet tones of emo pop.
Characterized by catchy, hook-filled choruses and a special sort of angst, the rise of emo pop put popular male-dominated acts like Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, and All Time Low on the map. Featuring a lead singer named named Hayley Williams, Paramore was the only emo pop outfit to break into the scene that was fronted by a woman.
After a few lineup changes and moderate success with their debut All We Know is Falling, the band released their sophomore effort Riot! and found a whole new level of popularity in mainstream music. Riot! carved out a spot for Paramore in the music scene, granting them success that has allowed them to grow in a space that’s completely their own.
