I've heard that the cutoff for the Grammys is 9/30. So I expect to see them dominate in 2015!

Paramore are one of the greatest, most influential and inspiring rock act this generation has seen. Greatest band in the world since The Beatles.

Apple paid 4 gajillion dollars for the opportunity to force U2 into the Grammys with no ones permission.

That Paramore song is actually a really good song. Just because they're not Foo Fighters doesn't mean they're not talented musicians. Jesus.

Also, even if SH was eligible this year, there's been far better albums released.

Good to know. And I love Paramore before Hayley Williams went Katy Perry.

the album is pretty good too, there's a huge leap in musicianship compared to what they've done before. those kids are truly talented and it's great to see that happening in this day and age. Hayley Williams had everything to become the next Taylor Swift or something like that, yet she chose to stay with a band that even though she's the frontwoman, is still a rock band and it's never her face dominating everything, it's not named after anyone in particular, it alludes to a group of people.

I have a huge respect for them even though I'm not the biggest fan of the earlier catalogue.

Absolutely. It's a great album from a band that has clearly challenged itself.
