  • Trever from N. Syracuse, NyIn my opinion, this is my favorite track of Riot!. It really proves what paramore can do. Thats a good thing. Cause, us paramore fans, now know that they can do the very energetic kind of music and if they notice the fans like that they would do it in the future. Also, this would have made a good single.
  • Paolo from Mexico City, Mexicosame here. kickass track to close an album, though.
  • 69-so-fine from French Lick, Indiana!!, InWell, since the band explains it then w/e...I'll give mine anyway. I thought it was their victory song saying that they were born to play music...
