Exclusive First Look: Paramore's Live DVD "The Final RIOT!"

November 20, 2008 4:45 PM ET

"We like to film stuff, but we don't always get the chance to do it," Paramore bassist Jeremy Davis tells Rock Daily of the band's decision to bring a friend on the road to film what would become the band's first DVD, The Final RIOT!. "It ended up being perfect, because we were already friends with him so we weren't afraid [to be ourselves]." Filmed at Chicago's Congress Theatre over the summer on Paramore's "Last Riot!" tour, the DVD (which also comes with a CD of live tracks) shows off the band's live chops and what Davis calls the band's "goofy" antics on the road.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
