Paramore: “We’re Not The Twilight House Band”

Jun 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

MTV talked to Paramore about whether they will be on the New Moon soundtrack and here is what they had to say:

“Yeah, we’re not the ‘Twilight’ house band … just making that statement now,” frontwoman Hayley Williams laughed. “I’m a fan of the series, and I think that Stephenie Meyer is a great author, and I’m excited to see the films, but we kind of did what we did for ‘Twilight,’ and I feel like it’s time to let other people, you know …”

So what is she looking forward to seeing most in “New Moon”? Well, strangely enough, Dakota Fanning.

“I know Dakota Fanning is in it, playing Jane … that’s a really cool character for her to play,” Williams said. “It will be perfect because Jane is meant to be very innocent-looking and angelic and Dakota Fanning has a lot of bite to her. I like a lot of her movies, and she’s much more mature than she is old, you know? There’s something about the way she carries herself.”

    MUSE HAD BETTER BE ON THIS SOUNDTRACK AGAIN!!! They are the best band in the world! (in my opinion :) and Stephanie’s favorite! So, PLEASE whoever is in charge of the soundtrack, please put at least one Muse song in there!!! :D

    I would like to hear some more of Robert’s songs on New Moon. He has such an amazing and haunting voice.

    Hey Monday in my opinion, should be on the soundtrack. especially the song 6 Months.

  5. Amber says:

    I don’t really like Paramore,so that won’t bother me.And I CERTAINLY don’t like Muse,the only reason why people like them now is because of Stephenie Meyer saying that they are her favorite band!Adam Lambert should not be on the soundtrack!I just did not like him on American Idol,just what I think.I don’t agree that Robert Pattinson has a great voice,you could barely make out what he was singing.I have never heard of Hey Monday,can they actually sing?I know I won’t be buying this soundtrack,I did not for Twilight because I had not heard of anybody who was on there.

    hey, their choice. i would buy the New Moon soundtrack for them if they were on it, but not if they weren’t.

    hey, Amber! don’t be a hater! i was a Muse fan long before i was a Twilight fan. and yes, Hey Monday can sing, they rock. and i’d only heard of a handful of bands on the Twilight soundtrack, but i bought and loved it. so give it a shot.

    Muse has been popular for a very long time and they are amazing with or without Stephenie Meyer promoting them. They’ve got a similar, somewhat more techno rock feel, as Radiohead. Robert Pattinson is an ok singer, he does mumble though. Personally, Bobby Long is a much stronger singer than Rob. I’d love Incubus to be on the soundtrack if possible, they’re my favorite band. Ummm… Hmmm, there’s a lot of great artist that have a diverse enough sound to put on New Moon. I’d like to see another mix of indie music with popular. I’m not a huge fan of popular music, so a balance would be best. Chris Weitz love popular music though. *grumble*
