In the new video for Paramore's "Playing God," singer Hayley Williams runs roughshod over her bandmates, drugging them during a tea party, tying them up in a basement, and then subjecting them to an interrogation. She frees them to perform the chorus — but the reprieve doesn't last through the end of the song.

“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."
