Didn't Adam's Song finally make a comeback? I could be remembering incorrectly but I swear they played it with Matt at least once.

Nah, you're just getting confused with the intros for 85% of Cali mate

Yeah they played it with Matt, hence my use of past tense with "we went through the same bullshit" instead of "we're currently going through the same bullshit" but...I got no clue if Adam's Song is part of the regular setlist now or not haha

I don't have an issue with the lyric itself, the song overall is quite childish. As a songwriter though, I can totally see where she's coming from. She probably feels very embarrassed by the song overall not just that lyric, purely from a 'catty girl aggressive bullshit' perspective. She's not a kid anymore, it's an ugly representation of being a teen and Paramore have grown up a lot thematically since then. I can see why fans would be pissed though, it's like their biggest hit. But you can still listen to the record, and there's a loads of old live recordings. No one is really losing anything. Her song, her band, her choice.

Its their most well known song. What a stupid thing to do. Thats like blink not playing Wmaa or Atst ever again

Ive never heard of a rock band that didnt hate some of their old hits, but its their job to play for the audience. Hayley just sounds like a confused diva

It's really not that unusual. Weezer went through a long period of not playing anything from Pinkerton no matter how much fans wanted to hear some of those songs.

Rivers is a very strange guy. Im guessing that was around the time it came out? Because that's 1 of their top 2 albums. He had to have realized what a mistake that was

Someone once told me that Pinkerton is a gateway album for burgeoning incels and now I can't look at it the same way anymore.

It was after the album came out and up until 2008 or 2009. For a while, he said he was embarrassed that so many bands found it inspirational. He has changed his mind and Hayley might at some point too, but bands are allowed to dislike their earlier work and want to distance themselves from it. In a few years, Paramore might bring Misery Business back, who knows?

I think it's more a distance themselves from their biggest hit and fans favorite song to push more love for their other/newer stuff more than any explanation they give.

Shes just overthinking it. Nobody cares if she feels more grown up now. Its a good song. Their breakthrough most popular song. Do your job as a musician and play it for your audience! 

Does she think shes the only artist whos lasted more than 10 years? She needs to get over herself. Oh poor you, you have to play a song for your fans. If she's so mature and grown up, she would just play the damn song!

I think it's best to remember that Pinkerton was once part of a giant space opera that Rivers was making about his year at Harvard in 1995. also I don't think that album validates any of those feelings, especially since Butterfly ends it all on such a dour note.

and speaking for myself, if you ever used the N word, out loud, in public, here in the states i'd be the first in (a probably very long line) of people waiting to beat the shit out of you.

I think an artist can play whatever the hell they want, big hit or not. They might have some disappointed fans but they've changed a lot over the years and have every right to leave whatever they want in the past. Maybe I'm biased or something because I think their newest album was rad and I wasn't a big fan of them previously.

I don’t think artists should be required to play their biggest hits at every show. And quite frankly I wish a lot of artists would play less of them.

Oh shut the fuck up. Loads of artists have done this, it's her songs, it's up to her what she plays live. She's made it known they won't play it and that's it - her music, her choice. Brand New stopped playing Seventy x Seven, blink stopped playing Adams Song and Paramore have a shit load of other materials and hits to use.

i think it's fair they stop playing that song.... overplayed for me anyway..

but the reason why is ridiculous... also making a big deal out of it...gotta love that press

Do you have criteria for what is and is not a valid reason for a band to stop playing a song live?
