I read about this a few years ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was right after the Farro brothers left. I don't believe it. From what I've heard in interviews with Hayley, Jeremy, Taylor and
the Farros, they all met in the Tennessee area (see the song Franklin to be exact) in 2002-ish. Hayley was actually discovered as a teenager before the rest of the band and was signed as a "pop solo artist". She objected, wanting to play rock music in a band instead of being a cliche pop star. Even though the Farros, Josh in particular, have been brutally honest about Hayley always being the center of attention and the fact that she was the only member technically signed to Atlantic at the time, I still don't think Paramore is a "corporate band". Why else would she tattoo logos of the band on her arm, or why else would Jeremy or Taylor not say something negative about not being on said contract? They're obviously making a living and look pretty fuckin happy if you ask me.
Check out this interview. It goes into more detail...
Either way, back on topic.
Apart from my favorites already mentioned which include Paramore, Halestorm, Jefferson Airplane and Lacuna Coil, here are some I didn't see.

And I can't not
That intro will forever give my chills.
