Paramore’s Musical Style and Influence

Paramore’s music has generally been regarded as ‚Äúemo‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúpunk pop‚ÄĚ Shua Martin had written after an interview with Hayley Williams, “The band isn’t just a short pop-punk girl with red hair and a spunky attitude.

Their music is like them, it’s aged differently. It’s sped up, and slowed down. It’s emo without being whiny, or bratty. Almost a very literal anti-Avril Lavigne.


Alternative Press magazine had commented that the band was “young sounding”, while consistently being “honest.”¬†¬† Paramore’s first album All We Know is Falling had an arguably more “formulaic pop-punk” sound that was “delivered particularly well” and the combination of the two had created a “refined rock infused pop/punk album.”

The band’s second release, Riot! was said to explore a ‘diverse range of styles,” however, not straying far from “their signature sound.
