The videos are awesome, they sound great. 

Def one of the best live pop punk bands going. 

They’re fucking great. One of the best pop punk bands ever imo. Like you said they’re criminally underrated. Over the moon with this. I’ll watch it tonight.

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. 

Avril started out singing country and only really got into pop punk when record execs suggested it. That's how the legend goes, anyway.

Obviously she's been fairly consistent throughout her career, so presumably she genuinely likes pop punk-ish stuff, but she was as manufactured as any pop star of the early '00s.

Is there any evidence of that? Country has been has been a much more lucrative genre for a long time, i struggle it was purely manufactured.

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:

 

This album was great too. Thanks for sharing these, I never would have known about them!

There's plenty written about how she got her start doing country covers. Her wiki page says she gravitated towards pop punk on her own, which I think is probably somewhat apocryphal, but maybe not. And obviously she was super young when she first became successful, so it could very well be that her tastes changed without any industry pressure. But I also think it's reasonably likely that savvy record execs would have seen pop punk becoming more mainstream and also would have been well aware of the increasing popularity of solo female singers and thought that combination would have a lot of potential.

There were definitely interviews and articles in Canada around the time she got famous. They looked into her background a lot more. Some of the people interviewed might have been jealous and trying to tear her down. It's hard to say.

didn't I pass YOU because you were too much of a vagene to post a pic?

Possibly. I’ve been on the decline for a few years. You’ll never reach the top though. Posted my pic more than you have you fucking clown. You’ve posted yourself once, I’ve posted a pic about 5 times.

You are miserable. Clearly the one who gets so worked up over receiving a crab is the sad fucking cunt. Is your wife not letting you fuck right now or something?
