Paramore Biography

Paramore is a Grammy-nominated pop punk band that formed in Franklin, Tennessee, United States. Paramore’s ladder to success came when they performed at venues outside the greater Nashville area, including the concert festivals Purple Door and Warped Tour.

John Janick got ahold of Paramore’s demos and went to a Taste of Chaos performance in Orlando, Florida to see the band perform live. After a small performance at a warehouse, the band was signed to the label in April 2005.

Paramore Trivia

Paramore covered Foo Fighters’ "My Hero" for the Sound of Superman soundtrack.

They took the name Paramore, which is derived from the maiden name of one of the group’s former bassists during the time in which they were still playing in the garage.

The band was nominated for "Best New Artist" at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards presented on February 10, 2008 but failed to win the award.
