Paramore Returns To Billboard Social 50 Chart Following Kristen Stewart’s “SNL” Song

Thanks in large part to the buzziest sketch from the November 2 edition of “Saturday Night Live,” Paramore is back on the Billboard Social 50 chart.

The band re-enters the listing, which ranks artists based on social media activity, at #46.

As Paramore did not make any music announcements this week, it is safe to say the “SNL” bit is responsible for this week’s re-entry.

Entitled “Corporate Nightmare Song,” the sketch found host Kristen Stewart and various “SNL” cast members performing an emo-pop/power-pop parody based on corporate culture. Stewart’s look seemed to be based on Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams’ look during the band’s “RIOT!” album era.

Many fans discussed the comparison on social networks, and Williams added momentum to the conversation with a reference in her Instagram story.
