Paramore have made it clear that the band will no longer play “Misery Business” during live shows amidst controversy their breakthrough hit is “anti-feminist.”
“Tonight we’re playing this song for the last time for a really long time,” Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams told the crowd before performing the song during the band’s special concert at the inaugural Paramore Art + Friends festival in Nashville last week.
It also marked the end of Paramore’s tour in support of their 2017 album After Laughter.
“This is a choice that we’ve made because we feel that we should, we feel like it’s time to move away from it for a little while,” Williams said.
“This is to every bad decision that led us here, this is to all the embarrassing things we might have said, but we owned up to it and we grew,” she said in apparent reference to the backlash Williams has faced for singing the lines, “Once a whore, you’re nothing more/ I’m sorry that’ll never change.”
