top 100 of the '00s | 90. paramore - "misery business"

The whole "I like him but he doesn't like me back" story has been told in every way humanly possible. This is not one of those stories.

This goes to a new level: I like him, and the girl he's dating knows it, and she is actively aggressive to me.

It's a cocksure reply to an insecure lover who's in over her head. She probably spends a lot of time shooting catty glances, starting rumors, engaging in PDA in front of the right people, etc., but the singer just doesn't give a shit, because she knows she's got the dude in the bag.

And that's a great feeling.
