Crushcrushcrush was made available in the United Kingdom for download on November 5, 2007 and purchase on November 26, 2007. The single is also playable on various music video games such as Rock Band, Rock Band Unplugged, Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades, and Ultimate Band. The single won a Teen Choice Award for "Best Rock Track." It was also used briefly in NCIS (TV series), in episode 05x12- Stakeout. The song was certified Gold in the United States on September 17, 2008.
During live performances of the song, as a joke, Hayley is often known to start singing the chorus from 'Low' by Flo Rida during the bridge of the song, when she sings "I need something to sing about."
Music VideoThe music video shows the band performing in a barren desert environment, and three people spying on them with binoculars from a distance. The three voyeurs watch from behind various old trinkets that have formed a faux house without walls or a roof. Intercut between Paramore's performance of the song are clips of the band walking through the voyeur's "house" and later on, short clips show that Paramore and the bandits watching them are the same (Hayley in the bathtub, Josh and Jeremy playing/slamming their guitars and Zac pushing his stands over and throwing drums). The three men then destroy all of the equipment.
