Paramore’s Hayley Williams: ‘There aren’t enough heavy Christmas songs’

Singer says she would like to see hardcore band Turnstile record a festive song

Hayley Williams of Paramore has lamented the lack of rock bands making Christmas songs.

Williams and her Paramore bandmates have not recorded a song for the holidays themselves yet when asked by NME who she would most like to see join in the tradition, she offered “a hardcore band called Turnstile” stating that “they have this heavy ’90s influence. I feel like it would have had a lot of attitude.”

Speaking in the new issue of NME, which is on newsstands now and available digitally she adds: “There aren’t enough heavy Christmas songs, they’re all pop or country songs. I want something that I can bulldoze around to.”

Earlier this year Paramore headlined Reading & Leeds Festivals. More recently, Williams has recorded a duet with Joy Williams, formerly of The Civil Wars as well as joining pop-punk band New Found Glory live onstage at their recent gig in London.

In October, Hayley Williams accused One Direction of ripping off New Found Glory, noting the similarities between One Direction’s recent single ‘Steal My Girl’ and New Found Glory’s 2006 track ‘It’s Not Your Fault’.
