It seems that this corona virus quarantine keeps everyone flowing their creative juices. Earlier this week, Travis Barker did his best Tom DeLonge impression and has continuously hit a storm on social media.
It’s strange that the cover of MGK and Travis Barker comes out not long after Hayley Williams criticized the song. The popular, yet controversial, lyrics have not aged well.
In fact, Paramore decided to stop it live in 2018. Earlier in March, Williams responded to the song in a social media post.

In a post on her Instagram story, Williams thanked Spotify for including her recent single “Simmer” in their Women Of Rock playlist. But she also noted that “Misery Business” was there as well.
“SIMMER” is in this playlist. thx @spotify, ”says Williams. “But ‘Misery Business’ too. I know it’s one of the band’s biggest songs, but it shouldn’t be used to promote anything that has to do with women’s empowerment or solidarity. I’m so proud of the career from Paramore, it’s not about shame. It’s about growth and progress … and while it will always be a fan favorite, we don’t have to include it on playlists in 2020. ”
