Forget the '90s; the early '00s are the new throwback era to wholeheartedly embrace. Record label Fueled By Ramen is still producing solid bands, and this summer, two of its biggest acts are joining forces for what's shaping up to be one sick event.
Paramore and Fall Out Boy will be hitting the road for the Monumentour, a two-month-long pop-punk fest filled with neon hair, skinny jeans, and checkered Vans. Monumentour tickets are selling fast, but we teamed up with Paramore to give away two tickets to each show (that's a $150 package for free/zero/zilch/nada). And, to celebrate the sweeps, Paramore's Hayley Williams made a summer playlist filled with an unexpected mix of hazy day jams.
"This is my Melancholy Summer playlist," Williams told Refinery29. "'Cause sometimes summer is about sunburns and rained-out beach days and summer-fling breakups!" Amen, sister.
Monumentour Tour dates and entry details can be found at the end of the slideshow, but before that, let's kick back and turn these tunes up.

Bleachers, "I Wanna Get Better"
Hayley: "Love this song as a sort of anthem for the human condition. But, I love that the lyrics don't settle for brokenness."

Candy Hearts, "Coffee With My Friends"
Hayley: "Candy Hearts have one of my favorite albums of the summer. It's happy, melancholy, sad, and sarcastic all in one...This might be my favorite song off the record."

Coldplay, "Another's Arms"
Hayley: "This new Coldplay album really got to me. I think 'cause of how public the whole backstory seems...Very inspiring to hear a man sing about his heart in such a present and vulnerable way."

Brody Dalle, "Don't Mess With Me"
Hayley: "Brody is one of my all-time favorite ladies. Her new album is so rad, and this is the newest single."

The Angels, "My Boyfriend's Back"
Hayley: "It wouldn't be one of my little playlists if it didn't include the Angels. The '60s-girl-group vibe reminds me of the beach, reminds me of youth, and I just never stop loving this song."

Hop Along, "Kids on the Boardwalk"
Hayley: "Super nostalgic sounding band...And, I love the singer's voice. Plus, the lyrics 'I wanna love something without it having to need me' are so real!"

Timber Timbre, "Run From Me"
Hayley: "Taylor [York] just showed me this song, and I died over the vocals. So classic and smooth, but yet the lyrics are kind of deranged. I like the idea of telling someone what you love about them, but warning them you could hurt them. Powerful."

Kye Kye, "Softly"
Hayley: "We just put out an Ain't It Fun remix EP, and there's a Kye Kye remix on there. Such a cool sound, and I love this song."
