Hayley shares early Paramore influences playlist

Hayley Williams made another playlist on Spotify, this time with tracks that were the early Paramore influences. Yesterday in a fit of nostalgia, I re-made the very first mix I got from Zac Farro in 7th grade, she wrote on Twitter. Now that I think back on it – this was the beginning of Paramore. The influence didn’t show through in all our early music but these were our first heroes, she added. Click HERE to access the playlist. It includes 24 tracks, from Dead Cab for Cutie, The Beatles, Weezer and Filter.

thursday and fugazi and deftones all came just slightly after this mix. suddenly we thought we were gonna be a hardcore punk band, she added in a response to one of the tweets from a fan.
