Hard to believe for many diehard Paramore fans but today is the seven-year anniversary of the release of their second album, Riot! It has sold over 1 million copies in the United States and is platinum-certified by the RIAA.
Did you know? The name ‘Paramore’ came from the maiden name of one band member’s mom, with the spelling ‘paramour’ meaning ‘secret lover’.
Hayley Williams, lead singer of Paramore, tweeted out this photo to commemorate the album’s anniversary:
