No, really: what the hell?! How is it that nearly a decade after Avril Lavigne (side note: that profile pic of her is CREEPY!) first faux-punked her way into my teenage heart I still love/hate her ridiculous songs! Seriously, she is as punk as Ashley on Degrassi (is it a Canadian thing?), but her singles are so catchy I just can’t stay away. For example, “Girlfriend”—“Hey, Hey, You, You, I don’t like your girlfriend”? Objectively awful. But did that stop me from downloading it and putting on a workout mix? Yeah, nope!
And this new one—“What the Hell”—I’m hooked already. Maybe I secretly relate to her wannabe punk attitude… “All my life I’ve been good, but now, whoa, what the hell?!” You’re right, Avril. I’m so sick of living this goody two-shoes lifestyle; I’m just going to do whatever the hell I want! (as I listen to your song in my cube at work…)
Whatever the reason, this song is as catchy as hell, and I will continue to listen to it…with my earbuds.
Thanks (for nothing) Zach, for introducing me to this song.
