Their performance with the San Francisco Symphony for “S&M” also earned them a Grammy in 2001.

Paramore’s defining Grammy moment occurred in 2008 when their breakthrough hit “Misery Business” earned them a nomination for Best Short Form Music Video. In 2011, Paramore was spotlighted as they won the Grammy for Best Rock Song with “The Only Exception.”
