From starting as a plucky emo band hailing from teeny tiny Franklin, Mississippi, USA, to becoming one of the most influential pop bands of the past decade, Paramore have more than made their mark on rock and pop music since debuting in 2005.

The mid 2000s saw the rise of emo, an age of pop-tainted punk rock filled with angst and bratty lyrics. Loved by teens, generally reviled by music critics, it was everywhere for the better part of the 2000s. It beared a somewhat uncanny similarity to the teen pop craze from the turn of the millennium, in 2000 you had Britney Spears, Christina Aguliera, Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, and in 2005 you had My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco and... in a sea of blue-black tinted straightened hair, a band fronted by a small but fiery orange-haired girl known as Hayley Williams... Paramore.

Paramore has perhaps had the biggest sound shift and evolution in their artistry than any of the other bands mentioned above, by their fourth album they had moved away from emo punk and turned to a more new wave and synthpop oriented sound, but the angst and spunkiness in their writing was still there. They had matured over the years, and grown up just like their fans did. People took notice, and their critical and (not all the time) commercial success increased with every new album, they had carved out their own niche of pop rock.

Now, onto what we're all here for...

1. Rate all 76 tracks from a score of 0 to 10, with decimals of .5 being allowed in case you need to narrow your scores down more (it's also good for breaking ties so by all means use them).
2. You are allowed to give one, and only one, song your coveted 11. Choose wisely.
3. Commentary isn't required, but highly encouraged.
4. Troll ballots will be thrown out without any thought.
5. Probably wondering why No Friend has been crossed out, huh? I've decided that there's no real reason to rate it, Hayley has no vocals on it and it's more or less an intermission, and will surely get 0s thrown at it just for those reasons, and an album like After Laughter doesn't deserve to have its average dragged down like that. You could convince me otherwise as to why we should rate it, however.
6. Please please PLEASE fill your scores and commentary next to the songs in the list how it appears below, it makes compiling all the scores much easier that way.
7. Send in your scores and commentary by the 13th of October 2018 @ 11:59pm AEST. If you need an extension, let me know.

I’m coming to give (likely the only) high scores to all of the underrated All We Know Is Falling.

Their discography is such quality though. There’s at least 2 tracks I’ve not heard before in the extras part of the first two albums and I even love them on first listen. Giving my 11 to one song is already making me anxious.

All We Know... is underrated for sure! I do think it’s their weakest effort but it still has some real gems that I hope won’t be done wrong.

I don’t know what my 11 be at this point either, all the albums plus the Singles Club EP have songs that I could see myself giving it to, their discography is just so immaculate.

brand new eyes is their best album by a country mile. ‘All I Wanted’ for top ten.

Riot! is also a masterpiece.

The memories of me seeing them live for both are coming FLOODING back

Me relistening to All I Wanted for the first time in ages in preparation for the rate and being taken back to the first time I heard it when I got the album.

So excited to do this! I think self-titled is my favourite but all their albums have incredible highs. And No Friend being excluded is a shame because it probably would’ve been my only 0. I really have no idea what’s going to be my 11 yet!
