Riff: Paramore – “Anklebiters”

Apr 9, 2013

Why do you care what people think?/Are you hooked up to their leash?

from Anklebiters lyrics by Paramore

Paramore take their sound to new heights in adolescent-centric, family-friendly bubblegum here, the darkest insult being “anklebiters!” Reports may have emphasized branching out (or grossly exaggerated it – seriously, mathy?), but this teeny-bop really is their wheelhouse; [LISTEN].
