Hayley Williams compares Paramore to cockroaches

Hayley Williams of Paramore recently spoke with WWD about the band’s early music. The vocalist recalls a track from their third album ‘Brand New Eyes’ that made her reconsider their earlier lyrics. She stated, ” “Every now and then, we’ll perform a song and I’ll be really present, not just in terms of being among people, but also in terms of actually listening to the lyrics, and I’ll be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I can’t believe I created this.’ I recall playing a song called ‘Misguided Ghosts,’ which was on our third album, and it’s one of my favorites because it mirrors some of the music we were listening to more in our acoustic [stage].” She went on to say that listening to ‘Misguided Ghosts’ triggered emotions in her and demonstrated to her that Paramore is here to stay. She stated: “And we were playing it somewhere, and it was the first time in a long time that I really paid attention to what I was saying, and it was so emotional.”

‘God, guy, we’ve been through so much as a band,’ I thought. We shouldn’t be here at all. There’s no need for us to be here anymore.’ I always say that we’re like cockroaches. We’re not going to die. I’m quite appreciative.” Despite comparing the band to a cockroach that refuses to die, Hayley was recently forced to cancel Paramore’s gigs due to a lung ailment. The cancellation sparked some criticism, with some labeling Hayley as a “whiney, hypocrite c*nt.” However, before canceling the final two gigs, Williams posted on Instagram: “Hello everyone, we just left the stage in Seattle. After discussing with our team and my doctor, I’ve realized that attempting to complete this tour will now jeopardize my health. My lungs are simply not mending rapidly enough. Tonight was a little frightening.”
