It’s been nearly a decade since Paramore hit the scene and after their hiatus after their 2010 album, , it was a mystery as to when they would return. Despite switching the lineup and losing two members, Paramore released it’s comeback album (Paramore) in April of 2013. Singles from the album, ‘Now’ and ‘Still Into You’ didn’t do too shabby on the charts neither did their previous work. Yet, none of their past singles made it into the top 20 let alone the top 10.
‘Ain’t It Fun’ moves 13-10 this week making it the group’s 1st top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their previous highest charting was in 2010 and November 2013 with both ‘The Only Exception’ and ‘Still Into You’ peaking at #24. My personal favorite ‘Misery Business’ never peaked past #26. In addition, ‘Ain’t It Fun’ becomes their first #1 atop the Hot Rock Songs as it moves 2-1 knocking off Bateille’s ‘Pompeii’.
All is right in the world as one of my favorite bands reaches a milestone. CONGRATS!
