God, this country cover of Paramore's Misery Business feels so good

Following his awesome adaptation of YUNGBLUD and Machine Gun Kelly's I Think I'm OKAY in the style of 11 pop-punk bands, YouTuber Alex Melton has shared a brilliant new cover: Missouri Business.

The track is a 'bro country' reworking of Paramore's classic Riot! single Misery Business, and feels incredibly wholesome – Alex even changing the lyrics from 'Once a whore, you're nothing more' to 'Once a bore…', a switch that vocalist Hayley Williams will surely approve of.

"I haven’t related to it in a very long time," the singer shared in 2015 of how MizBiz was considered by some to be 'anti-feminist'. "Those word were written when I was 17… admittedly, from a very narrow-minded perspective. It wasn’t really meant to be this big philosophical statement about anything. It was quite literally a page in my diary about a singular moment I experienced as a high schooler."

Anyway, it sounds absolutely ace as a country song – it truly does 'feel soooo goooooood'.

Check out Alex's reworking below:

Last month, Hayley confirmed that her focus is back on Paramore following the release of two solo albums, 2020's Petals For Armor and this year's FLOWERS for VASES / descansos: "I’m not planning on another solo album," she said. "And I’m not sure if they’d be great for Paramore. I’m ready for the next Paramore album. Let’s go."

When asked by a fan on Twitter if she "will be more involved with the instrumental writing process in Paramore albums now" she wrote: "I wouldn’t say I’ve been un-involved up till now but the thing is we grew up playing together and learning (and the re-learning) how to write together. They are my favorite musicians in the world. I’m excited to see how our writing together grows for this next project."
