LyricsEdit

Throughout the song, soundbites from the past PARANOiA songs can be heard, which include "Sound!" and "Electric!". Other voices can be heard saying "PARANOiA!" The real lyrics are actually lines spoken by [Yuichi Asami], the announcer for DanceDanceRevolution games up to 5thMIX:

Select play mode.
Select music!
Let's heat it up! On this number!
Ready!
Okay! Here we go!

I'm so impressed I could cry. Thank you very much for your best dance!

Song Connections / RemixesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • PARANOiA Revolution was first accessible as a FINAL STAGE song on Hard difficulty in DanceDanceRevolution X3 VS 2ndMIX's 2ndMIX mode. The other new song was:
    • TRIP MACHINE EVOLUTION, accessible on Normal difficulty.
    • Both songs were made EXTRA STAGE songs on X3 mode on August 2, 2012, at EXTRA STAGE Level 6. AAing either one of them on Expert difficulty would unlock LOVE IS THE POWER -Re:born- as the ENCORE EXTRA STAGE.
      • When played as a boss stage on X3 VS 2ndMIX, PARANOiA Revolution's background video is slightly modified. In this case, the album art appears as a faint overlay during two portions of the video.
    • As of November 5, 2012, all boss songs are fully unlocked, at EXTRA STAGE Level MAX.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Expert rating on 2ndMIX mode is a 10, and it is named REVOLUTIONARY, referencing PARANOiA Revolution's song title and a later TAG song, REVOLUTIONARY ADDICT.
  • During the Final Round of the KONAMI Arcade Championship 2012 event, it was revealed that CLIMAX of MAXX 360 is indeed TAG.
  • Similar to the EXHAUST difficulty chart of Onigo from the SOUND VOLTEX series, PARANOiA Revolution's Expert stepchart is made up of many past songs' charts, mostly boss songs from DDR 1stMIX to X2 (including SILVER☆DREAM). See below.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Single Challenge chart uses MAX. (period)'s Expert chart during the first 8 measures of the 180 BPM section, while Double Challenge borrows from MAX. (period)'s Double Difficult/Challenge chart.
    • The Single Challenge chart also uses a portion of Healing-D-Vision's pre-DDR X Single Challenge chart, albeit mirrored and with an extra note.
  • Core, the android man that has appeared in the background still and album art of every PARANOiA song so far (excluding PARANOiA ~HADES~, although he is presumed to be in the song's background video) has been given a brand new appearance.
    • He also appears on PARANOiA Revolution's CD image and in the background video.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Single Challenge notecount is tied with 888, both having 753 notes while its Double Challenge notecount was the highest of any song (at 735 notes) at the time of PARANOiA Revolution's first appearance outside of the Revolution course and 2ndMIX mode, as well as the highest notecount of any chart on any song that is made by a solo artist (considering it is the Single Challenge chart). However, these records were later broken by Elemental Creation's new records of 860 notes (for Single Play) and 832 notes (for Double Play).
    • PARANOiA Revolution's Single Expert chart has the second highest number of notes of any Expert chart, at 679 notes (also tied with お米の美味しい炊き方、そしてお米を食べることによるその効果。), until Elemental Creation's debut in the following game with 789 notes.
    • PARANOiA Revolution's Single Difficult chart has the third highest notecount of any Single Difficult chart, at 510 notes, only surpassed by お米の美味しい炊き方、そしてお米を食べることによるその効果。and Elemental Creation's 516 and 614 notes respectively.
  • PARANOiA Revolution marks the first time Yasuhiro Taguchi remixes a song in the PARANOiA series. It is also his first boss song outside of his TAG and TAG underground aliases since Shiny World from DDR X2.
    • PARANOiA Revolution also marks TAG's first and only song featuring vocals from Thomas Howard.
  • As with all other 2ndMIX mode songs, PARANOiA Revolution's 2ndMIX mode background video is shown on a stage, specifically the dark blue one used by VANESSA and Leaving....
    • As of DDR 2013, PARANOiA Revolution's background video is now displayed fullscreen. This is to avoid the crashing issue that all other songs with on-stage background movies would later suffer from.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Basic through Expert charts make references to past PARANOiA songs. See below.
  • PARANOiA Revolution is one of the two only songs in the DDR series where the announcer does not speak at all when the song is played in the game save for combo announcements, with the other being Tohoku EVOLVED. However, this does not apply when PARANOiA Revolution is played in the Revolution course.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Double Challenge is considered the hardest chart to date, even harder than Valkyrie dimension's Single Challenge chart, due to its heavy use of pad switches and crossover steps.
  • PARANOiA Revolution's Challenge chart is quite infamous for having 16th notes at 360 BPM, faster than ΔMAX's 8th notes at 538 BPM (equal to 16ths at 269 BPM, slower than PARANOiA Revolution's 360).
