Yeah how do you go from Deryk from Sum 41 to the guy from Nickelback?

Easy, Deryk was a drunken waste. Hell if my option were that and Chad, I'd pick Chad in a heart beat. You're marrying that sweet Nickleback money, not the music.

Not sure if this has been discussed yet. 

Idk who this guy is but his voice is much less annoying than MGK and Avril is... There? Lol. interesting to see how well the track is doing. 

 

This is another one that sounds way more like early 00s post-grunge/nu-metal than pop punk to me.

Yeah Avril’s punk cred really took a hit when she married some bloke cause she was into him rather then the quality of his music.

She had so much punk cred up to that point too. I don’t know what’s more lame, Nickelback or fake wannabe edgy artists like Avril and MGK. They’re all laughable and on the same level if you ask me

I reckon the people over 12 who actually give a fuck are the most lame.

I actually have a lot of time for Avril. 

She could've easily turned herself into a full on pop star, and she never did. Think about the likes of Gaga or Taylor Swift who changed their core music to become superstars - Avril was always basically a simple singer songwriter who liked punk and the culture and even when the music didn't remotely suit it, she still did. 

Yes, her music is mostly just pop, but she wasn't and she didn't change who she was to fit that image and strive for that level of success, and I respect that. The only time she changed it up was purely for her Japanese audience and we fucking hated that, but they adored it over there. 

Plus, like her music or not - she showed little girls everywhere that they can like shitty music and play guitar and piano if they want to. I taught loads of little girls guitar because of Avril and I am beyond ecstatic that she encouraged a bunch of girls to pick up the guitar. She's obviously not the only one, but she's def an important inspiration for a lot of female musicians (and if you weren't aware, that's a heck of a rarity). 

Also, cringe as some of it is, she actually has some alright songs.

I actually wondered about that. I never cared enough to look into it but I wondered if they would like that or be offended by it. That's kind of funny.

This is pretty fucking cool, this band are still pretty underrated - they were mega and still make pretty decent music, this is a great trip down memory lane. 

 

can't wait to watch this later. One good thing about covid is we're getting lots of high quality online sets to watch from artists. I wish blink would do one. I'm guessing they haven't because they know it will not sound good.

But this year is the 20th anniversary of TOYPAJ. It would be amazing to see them play that album in full.

I really enjoyed it. There is also this one to check out as well, I know some people dismiss this album after Say it Like You Mean It but I think this is probably their best work - Based On A True Story - full album set:

Yeah everyone over here was like "oh my gooood, cultural appropriation! So awful!" apparently over there they loved it, she has a huge following over there.
