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.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
