Gah, me hates avril. She doesn't even know who Chrissy Hynde is. I mean, COME ON! If you're an alleged "punk", you should know who the most influential woman in alternative music is. *hits avril with strat, that I can actually play!*

I am by no means a fan, but she is hardly Britney. She writes her own songs and plays her own guitar. She is not trying to pretend to be something she is not, and as a matter of fact, she HATES people like that. She wrote the song "Complicated" about just that. Her fans aren't all 10 year old girls. Her songs are played regularly on adult contemporary stations. So give her a break, even if you don't like her. To tell you the truth, I'd rather see her than Metallica. I was never much of a fan, but I tolerated them until Lars had a big part in the killing of Napster. So Metallica

I have a whole lotta respect for Metallica... I don't own any of their cds, but my brother is a big fan and... wait, this is an avril thread.

Avril is such a faker.
She's all like "look at me! I'm wearing a tie! I'm different!" and then all her music sounds exactly like everything else being played.
I prefer her over britney and christina, though.

Not much of an Avril fan...but a friend of mine made up a funny parody of "I'm With You", so now we always listen to that song so he can sing along with his words.

My exact thoughts.

Except, I don't prefer her over the other two. I hate all of them.

And I think people give her too much credit for writing her own stuff. Yeah, she does. And it sucks all the same.

Really, how do you know she's 'faking?' Maybe she really likes dressing like that, how do we know? One thing she does do is try so hard to distinguish herself from Christina and Britney, so even though I don't like her music much it makes me sad to see her lumped in with them by people who don't even like her or know enough about her to know what she's thinking, sorry. I just think it's an unfair assumption and she deserves the benefit of the doubt.

I don't know why I'm even defending her. I'm not much of a fan at all, it's just the principle I guess. If you hate her for what she is, fine, but don't hate her for being like Britney, cause she's not, or for trying to prove she's different. All she can do is try, poor thing.

Check out her 'fuck' belt at a Dublin concert last month:

Maybe she does like to look different, but if her image is about being different from the bubblegum pop, she needs to SOUND different. Which she does not.

To me, at least.

She also doesnt know how to pronounce David Bowie's last name




She may write her own songs, but the lyrics are so lame.

she is only trying to be different because thats what is selling now. She only Co- writes her songs. And if she was really punk..would she have perfectly strait hair? tuned voice? contrived outfits? Uh no. it's sad she tries so hard and still sucks.

I'm gonna disagree with the majority here

When I was in high school and bored in my classes, I used to scribble down lyrics and have melodies for them going through my head. I have a whole binder full of "songs" that will never see the light of day, simply because I don't play any instruments.

Anyway, whether or not I like their music, I've always admired young people in the music business, especially if they write their own material (and who cares if it's co-written? How many other adult artists have co-written songs with others at one point or another?)... Maybe it's because I have a binder full of songs collecting dust in my attic but I've always enjoyed seeing new teens in the music business. I personally feel that a lot of them get a bad rap simply because of their age.

I think a lot of young people, period, don't get enough credit for what they're capable of...

I dunno, I give Avril credit for her musical efforts. Her album may not be what I'm "into" in terms of music, but I still think it's quite an accomplishment for a girl her age.
