Okay, not all pop is bad

This is Paramore, off of their album Brand New Eyes. This is standard alterna-pop, nothing particularly earth-shattering there. Still, these youngsters do a great job with the form -- and these are youngsters. Hayley Williams was born in 1988. That means she was a whole 16 years old when she begged her way into the band in 2004... siiigh! Makes this penguin feel old. As well as somehow unworthy... I didn't accidentally stumble into what I wanted to do with my life until the ripe old age of 30. These youngsters who decide what they want to do with their life and then just go out and friggin' do it... I don't know if I'll ever understand'em, but may the Great Penguin bless'em, they make this world so much more colorful and interesting with their enthusiasm and energy.
