List RulesVote up the bands that people who like Paramore should check out ASAP.

Looking for more good pop punk bands like Paramore? You've come to the right place. Thanks to classic hit songs like "Still Into You" and "Ain't It Fun," Hayley Williams, Taylor York, and Zac Farro make up one of the first groups that come to mind when most people think about the emo rock genre, but there are many other great bands who share a similar sound. 

Panic! at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, and All Time Low are among the top bands that are often considered to be related artists to Paramore because of the combination of their high-energy punk rock riffs and their upbeat pop vocals. Meanwhile, Tonight Alive, Flyleaf, and Evanescence are popular bands with female singers that sound like Paramore in their own ways.

Undeniably, Paramore has had a massive influence on the pop punk and emo scenes, inspiring both their contemporaries and new bands today. And, while there are a lot of awesome groups and artists that sound like the legends behind "Misery Business," it's up to you to decide which are the best of the best. Vote up the bands you'd be most likely to recommend to people who are fans of Paramore, and be sure to add any that you feel we might have missed.
