Avril Lavigne


Pages: 1 2 3 4 5
i was born telling myself i shouldn`t hate - but i HATE avril .

for all things sacred, stop this music . this is the worst thing since i began watching MTV . this is what corporations do to good music; they hire a good looking prep kid who dresses punk and put her on MTV where she screams and sings and complains about her irksome life - and make it look and sound even more depressing by asking her to smash mirrors and thrash the malls and smash guitars . all her songs make her sound like she`s always right when the guy breaks up with her - and it`s always the guy`s fault . ah well . this exactly shows that she`s an irresponsible kid who loves blaming others . but people don`t see it that way .

right . so now all the hypnotized avril fans think that "god she`s so PUNK she`s so COOL and i luuurve her". but hell, they have no idea what real punk even is - and hell, they don`t even care . they follow her style, still remembering that she`s punk ..........

and then one fine day the avril-haters start to rock the world with this 'anti-avril-cos-she`s-a-poser' attitude - and soon avril goes on in magazines saying "i`m not punk" . she`s one timid kid curling back into her shell .

you never saw her pictures back when she was young ? the black framed glasses and the curly hair . she could probably fit into emo if she wasn`t that desperate to go into the media . make money by posing like a punk dude .

then again - if avril is suppose to represent punk in the media, then the whole punk society`s brought to disgrace - and the whole punk society is gone to hell in a rotting handbasket .

what`s worse - with avril dating deryk, it`s even harder to knock people to their senses that she is no punk but a poser . and SHE IS ALL TO BLAME . she`s gone to far . from pride to shame . she`s trying so hard . she`s dying in vain ..

let`s just hope deryk`s merely playing with her achky breaky heart - er . if she even has one .

i listen to punk . i listen to emo . but i don`t dress punk . and i don`t dress emo . and i simply love pop-punk . i seriously don`t think she fits well into any other category other than pop - or shit music .

her name makes her sound evil . avril the evil weevil . =)

i`m not trying to offend any of you fans out there - but i guess i already did . i`m sorry to you avril fans out there . but i`m glad i let it all out . hell, i feel so good now .

Did she have a song Nobody's Home on her new album? Because she had Nobody's Fool on her first one...

>>By Urbane   (Tuesday, 8 Feb 2005 23:54)

Also Evanescence have a song called "Everybody's Fool", which I am convinced is about Avril. "Nobody's Fool" is a really terrible song - Avril's worst, I think.

>>By Sk8a H8a   (Wednesday, 9 Feb 2005 20:35)

None of Avril's songs are good though.

Oh, and PS Katie...
That picture is Garcia's locker is Avril beside Axel Rose, and yes, they do look exactly the same. Right down to the stupid red bandana.

I'm sure some of them have their merits.

>>By Bitch Fit   (Monday, 14 Feb 2005 18:22)

Doubt it. I think Avril Lavigne is an annoying, babyish pop singer.

Let's see how long it takes for this post to get deleted...

>>By Flagg   (Monday, 14 Feb 2005 18:42)

The songs were written by very talented people - I'd be interested to hear the stuff they wrote for themselves. I've not written for anyone else before but I imagine if I did it wouldn't sound as good as me playing my stuff, coz I know what I'm doing. Well, come to think of it I do write the music for most of the songs in my band and it never sounds exactly how I intended it... maybe Avril is distorting what could otherwise be excellent songs.

>>By Sk8a H8a   (Tuesday, 15 Feb 2005 17:08)

The lyrics are, for the most part, meaningless.

"He's just a skater boi, I said see you later boi..."


And... eerm.... who really cares?

>>By punk_child_8713   (Tuesday, 15 Feb 2005 18:04)

sorry, I screwed up Avril lyrics.

"he was a sk8er boi, I said see you l8er boi"

>>By punk_child_8713   (Tuesday, 15 Feb 2005 18:05)

The spelling of "boi" certainly does piss me off... I don't think anyone did that before Avril... most of the so-called "cool" misspellings are a result of shortening words or finding some easier way to type them but "boi" is probably just a typo... It's words like those that annoy the Hell out of me - hence the irony of calling myself Sk8a H8a.

>>By Sk8a H8a   (Wednesday, 16 Feb 2005 10:48)

no, no it wasn't a typo. It was Avril deciding to do something "cool"... in other words, make a fool out of herself and the entire "punk" society. Afterall, MTV does tell kids that Avril is hardcore punk.... But then again, MTV's probably never heard of bands like Anti-Flag and Tiger Army.... not saying that they're hardcore punk, but they're more "punk" than Avril ever will be.

Punk is just one big cliche. Well, the punk image is anyway. IT's what's "cool" now.... All of these kids walk around with their torn up clothes and leather jackets with "New York Dolls" written all over them... blue mohawks and the whole bit... they walk around and laugh at conformists, at preps. Sad thing is, they're just as cookie cutter as the rest of them.

>>By punk_child_8713   (Wednesday, 16 Feb 2005 22:22)

It's the whole thing about defining punk... I mean, punk in itself is an oxymoron unless it;'s TRUE anarchy or whatever... but here I am, defining punk, which really isn't right again...

Though it's difficult to be real rock star if you are a young girl.

>>By Catri   (Thursday, 17 Feb 2005 11:24)

i hate, hate, hate her most recent single i'm not even sure what its called but its the one where she ends up throwing paint around the room at herself and her "band" and then she smashes her guitar (again!) like in her very first video clip.
it was when i watch her first video clip that i decided that i that she was fake first of all she skates up to her friends but notice she only skates a couple of metres in a straight line at walking pace...... i'm pretty sure thats quite an easy feat to attain.
Then they go "trash" a mall in some sort pathetic mimic to shows like CKY but the whole things acted and i don't know why she'd want to act out like shes rebellious enough to trash a mall.
And then most importantly she smashes up a guitar!!!! she can barely play a guitar, how dare she smash it up??!! i hate when people smash up instruments i think its such a waste.
and ever since i've seen that video clip she has just gotten worse.......

punk only lasted at the very longest 1976-1977, it totally died after that and if you listen to the music of then ,it is nothing like avril. she is more like an updated alanis morrisette.

>>By scarletnikki   (Monday, 2 May 2005 12:57)

she is nothing compared to alanis morrisette

>>By odnanref   (Saturday, 7 May 2005 22:53)

I agree odnanref, but uf anything there is more of a comparison than punk.

>>By scarletnikki   (Wednesday, 11 May 2005 18:11)

oh oh oh loo0k how pretty pretty she lookz at the top da first album..her newest 1.

she is so bootyliciously bootyfull :)

>>By sk8er gurl 2004!   (Friday, 3 Jun 2005 22:04)

i dont find her particulary beautiful.. doesnt look bad, i admit..
i can't find anything good in the music she's doing, but oh well...i just ignore her.. good charlotte, busted, greenday, avril lavigne, (...) it seems to be "cool" to listen to "punk" and"rock" music..
i recentls saw trl on mtv, and it was kind of arock trl or sth like it. whatever, they had my chemical romance as guest. was kind of shocking for me, because even though i don't think they're that good - they are too good for trl...
the next video they showed was greenday - and i was happy again (:

and sk8er gurl: is it that important how a musician looks like!?

>>By alibabi   (Monday, 18 Jul 2005 00:03)

It means nothing about how a popstar/punk rocker looks (sorry, I see Avril Lavigne as a total bloody popstar, and although I have her first album, when she was considered cool, NO WAY IN HELL is she a punk...), it's purely about talent, or how many people you've screwed around with to the top.
Anyways, why do you think that Michelle McManus won sodding Popstars? Purely because she has talent. Not because she is a size 4, and throws up after a meal of lettuce leaves...
I'm counting down the time it takes for this to be deleted...

>>By Bitch Fit   (Monday, 18 Jul 2005 17:22)

avril is really popular with all my daughters friends ,they love her they are6 and7.

>>By scarletnikki   (Tuesday, 11 Oct 2005 21:34)

When I was 6/7 I enjoyed Pink Floyd, so perhaps you'd care to restate your point

>>By Sk8a H8a   (Tuesday, 11 Oct 2005 23:18)

you can't compare avril to punk or rock, you can only compare her to britney cause they sound the same, except the fact that avril pretends that she can play guitar in her songs. oh ye, and lyrics are pretty much the same... tho some of britney's songs are (sad to say) actually more inteligent...

>>By iva212   (Tuesday, 11 Oct 2005 23:29)

Avril's sound does seem at least influenced by a punk/ morrisette fusion, but the 'hooks' are definately all pop.
It's debatable wether her lyrics are less 'intelligent' than Spear's songs. I happen to disagree, but both do slip around in the same incoherent genre that encompases today's popular post-teen female vocalists.

But I thought Avril did most of her own writing.

I thought she was even credited for writing things for other performers, like Kelly Clarkson.
I believe Avril Lavigne wrote Kelly's recent hit "Since You Been Gone". Sure it's not the greatest song in the world, but it's catchy, and certainly much better than any of the stuff from Clarkson's first release.

sk8a...... exactly what you say, there is no other point to make, I liked David Bowie when I was 7.

>>By scarletnikki   (Wednesday, 12 Oct 2005 18:51)

What's really special about Avril is that although she is by definition a pop star (like Marilyn Manson), her backing band are great musicians, especially the bassist! If people listened to the music properly rather than just the lyrics (which are only supposed to be catchy rather than earth-shatteringly intelligent), they'd probably appreciate Avril more

>>By Sk8a H8a   (Wednesday, 12 Oct 2005 22:56)

nothing to do with the fact that you fancy her then?
