Paramore's Hayley Williams Puts Rock Twist on 'Bed Intruder Song'
Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has put her own spin on Antoine Dodson's viral hit "Bed Intruder Song" with help from two of her rocker friends: Jordan Putnik of New Found Glory and Ethan Lucy of Relient K.
Recorded by the trio at Lucy's home in Nashville (according to a description of the track posted to his YouTube account), the "Bed Intruder" cover is as brief but catchy as the original and features all of Dodson's now-infamous catchprhases -- including "Run and tell that, homeboy!" and "You are so dumb. You are really dumb, for real!" -- set to punk guitar riffs.

Of course, the original "Bed Intruder Song" is itself a reworking by Brooklyn group the Gregory Brothers, who set Dodson's interview with a local news station to music. Dodson was speaking with a reporter after an intruder broke into his sister's bedroom and attempted to assault her. The Gregory Brothers are also behind "Double Rainbow," a similarly Auto-Tuned remix of a YouTube video that shows a man breathlessly admiring two rainbows.
"Bed Intruder Song" debuted at No. 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week after collecting 30,000 downloads, enough to land at No. 49 on Digital Songs. This week the track drops off the Hot 100 and slips 49-65 on Digital Songs with 22,000 downloads (down 25%).
