Misery Business: Machine Gun Kelly: Fangirl Friday

I found this video yesterday when a friend shared it on Facebook. I have always been a huge Paramore fan, so I was really excited to see this. Machine Gun Kelly cover of “Misery Business” with Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker.


Machine Gun Kelly can also be found behind the drums in Netflix’s take on Motley Crue’s The Dirt. He plays Tommy Lee. (What is it with me and The Dirt lately? I’ve been on a big Motley Crue kick.) You may also recognize him from his role on the popular Netflix movie Bird Box…where he played the part of Felix.


I saw Machine Gun Kelly live when he opened for Fall Out Boy in October of 2018. I have never been a fan of Rap to be honest. I went to that show as a FOB fan, so I didn’t really pay as much attention to MGK’s set as I should have; I regret that these days; since I am now a fan of his movies and I will admit now, a few of his songs.

“Bad Things”

and of course “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” which is a song he did with Motley Crue


I rewatched The Dirt on Netflix today, and I have to say I liked the movie better before I read the book. The whole time I was watch it, I kept getting frustrated…and thinking things like “That’s not how it happened in the book/real life!” I still love the movie, but the book is way better.

Here is the original version of “Misery Business” by Paramore


I actually really enjoy both; but…Paramore will always do it best in my opinion.

What version do you like best?
