This song has been reviewed by musical critics, having mostly positive reviews. DIY Magazine wrote, "tell me it’s okay to be happy now, because I’m happy now,” the refrain thumps, all misery business firmly out of the window. None of that downbeat nonsense for Paramore 2.0. For the last eighteen months, they’ve been hitting every ball right out of the park, from their already perfect self-titled fourth full length to the ‘screw you, we’re taking the mainstream and we’re doing it our way’ attitude they’ve worn on the way. Because, if there’s been one thing that’s been refreshing about Paramore’s latest run, it’s that side order of sass. The affirmation that actually, it’s good to be upbeat. Things get better, cynicism sucks. Here, they’re not just adding something to make up the numbers, but crystallising the whole damn point down to one well deserved 100 mile an hour victory lap. It’s more than okay, it’s freaking brilliant." Brandon Flores of Blast Out Your Stereo said, "finally, another Paramore song I can fully get behind! As I can relate that is, It’s certainly been a while since I’ve flashed my own genuine smile. But, like the previously unreleased track states I’m finally happy now. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then you clearly didn’t read that title up above, shame on you! Either way, Paramore released the deluxe version of their 2013 released self-titled album, Paramore: Self-Titled Deluxe, today and as we all know, everything finds its way onto the internet at some point and Paramore’s previously unreleased self-titled demo, “Tell Me It’s Okay,” has already found its way online. And it’s a fantastic track indeed."
