During her headlining set this weekend at Coachella, Billie Eilish brought out Paramore’s Hayley Williams to cover the band’s “Misery Business.”
The performance saw Eilish and Williams giving the 2007 hit an acoustic twist. After Eilish greeted Williams on stage, Williams revealed to the crowd that it was her first Coachella ever. Then, the pair launched into the “Misery Business” cover alongside Eilish’s brother, Finneas. Throughout the cover, the pair delivered pop-punk vocal lines atop soft, yet gritty acoustic guitar lines as the crowd cheered along.
Williams and Eilish then performed the title track to Eilish’s new album, Happier Than Ever. During that track, Williams delivered the song’s iconic lines, “‘Cause I’d never treat me this shitty/ You made me hate this city.”

“Hi! Wow. This is my first Coachella,” Williams said to the crowd. Then, turning to Eilish, she says, “Thanks for sharing this with me–this is sick!”
“Misery Business” wasn’t Eilish’s only epic collaboration at Coachella. During weekend one, she brought out Damon Albarn to perform “Getting Older” alongside Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc.”
