Formed in 2004, when its members were still in high school, Paramore has become a rock-radio institution, with several tours down and three albums on the venerable pop-punk imprint Fueled by Ramen under its belt. Hayley Williams's robust and pitch-perfect vocals shoot the band far beyond contemporary acts like Boys Like Girls, the Cab and Hey Monday, erring instead on the side of Heart and No Doubt. Williams also has an obvious affection for Gwen Stefani's fashion sense — and for the band itself, apparently, as Paramore's videos resemble No Doubt's mid-career work — but her voice is still the focal point, sending Paramore soaring high above its Twilight-soundtrack companions.
