Paramore Return With Melodramatic 'Monster'
Lindsey Byrnes

Paramore released "Monster," their first new tune since the departure of band members Josh and Zac Faro, on YouTube today. The song, which will appear on the soundtrack of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, has a suitably huge and melodramatic sound, with frontwoman Hayley Williams solemnly singing "I'll stop the whole world from turning into a monster eating us alive!" over loud, ominous guitars. The track will hit digital stores on June 7th and the soundtrack album will be out on June 14th.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
