I love her music, I'm pretty sure most of you hate her and would like to kill her but I'm curious as to who doesn't hate her. My favorite song is "Fall to pieces" what's yours? What do you think of her?

And she's right about that.

What do you think of her?My favourite song of hers is also Fall to pieces. I love her and saw her live a few years ago, she was great. She covered Green day's basket case at the gig and I just remember having shivers, that she was promoting such good music.

I also love I'm with you and pretty much every song she has ever made, aside from that song she wrote to her Grandpa/Grandma or whatever on the last album. It was a bit to slow.

And she's right about that.All these rumours are full of shit. She said in an interview I read she'd never even heard of the Sex Pistols, and when asked if she was punk she said no, punk is to agressive, I write pop/rock songs, and that is EXACTLY what she does.

Human
12-27-2005, 07:55 PM
Yeah, that song was kind of boring and repetitive. Her music is like...you can't put it into a category and she can be fucking anything she wants. She can be girly, punk, tomboy, goth, etc.

You're an idiot. I listen to tons of music that isn't punk or metal. Avril is just horrible, bland, generic crap. I have no problem with pop music, but I do have a problem with music that sucks.

But, if I don't like something and still respect it, I say so. Avril, on the other hand, really isn't that respectable. I've heard live cuts, and her voice is horrible outside of the studio. Lyrically, the songs seem like they could have been written by any 12 year old girl out there, and her music isn't really composed by her for the most part. The "sad" thing wasn't that you said you liked her, as much as you said she was talented.

And fall to peices is a love song so it probably is one of those songs.

I have no problem with pop music, but I do have a problem with music that sucks.You cant say music sucks in general cause everyone has different tastes. I fucking cant stand SOAD and Metallica but I have mates who like them. Some of my friends think Offspring are awful and Green day are to. I don't agree.

Personally I find Mariah Carey to be the worst singer on the planet, I see NOTHING going for her, yet my brother loves her. Pussycat dolls also suck yet they were No.1 in Australia. You cant tell people what and what not to like, because people's tastes are ALL different.

Avril Lavigne makes the absolute worst music in the world. Seriously, if you ever want an example of the worst songs ever, pop in some Avril, followed by some Michelle Branch, followed by Ashlee Simpson, Oasis, Fall Out Boy, and Bowling For Soup, and you have a craptastic piece of shit experience. Throw in some Green Day too.

Yeah, she is hot though. But needs to die twice.

She tries too hard to be punk and fails miserably. And Velvet Revolver's Fall to Pieces is way better.

I find her voice awfully annoying. And I certainly don't like the music. But I don't hate her or want her to die. That's pathetic. She's just insignificant to me.

12-28-2005, 03:52 AM
She has the laziest kind of vocals i've heard...EVER. there's no emotion in her music and i find them so impossibly boring and also, the topics she "sings" about are depressing too.

I'm personally not keen on her, but just because her music doesn't appeal to me. ..
That's about it really.

I love her music, pretty much all of her first album. The second is good too, but not as good as the first. However once you hear her live recordings or performances, you realise how bad a singer she is. But it doesn't matter; she's successful and a lot of people enjoy her music, myself included, so good on her. Who cares about talent, when the end product sounds good?

I doubt anyone's asking her to be a virtuoso, but I think her listeners have a right to expect someone live that sounds moderately like the person on the album. At the very least.

but you know what? I like some of her songs. because they remind me of being a puber-like, rebel, fucking annoying daughter of a bitch. yesh. Avril is awesome in puberty & to everyone that can relate to her (almost about everyone) & who feels misunderstood (oooh!). I'll tell you what; she was fuckingly smart to find a gap in the market as much as she did. she didn't invent anything & she doesn't stand for anything. at the same time she's appreciated & produces music that sound good in the ear of the public. so yeah, props to her.

12-28-2005, 04:13 PM
i really cant stand her, when she first came out she was claiming she wasnt some pop star and wrote all her own songs, i dont see how anyone could disagree about that with a song like skater boy!

everything she did seemed like a publicity stunt that would be in the papers and on the internet the next day! she seems to try and imitate loads of people - billie joe for example - and plays terrible covers!

There must be at least one song you can stand. I think people get shitty about them because of their huge popularity.

Whether or not you like to think so, some people classify these artists as poppy punk. I personally don't agree, but this is the tag they were given by some people. Anyway thats not the point call it pop if you want to, it still just proves he doesn't like that genre of music, because 3 out of 4 of the artists he meantioned sound VERY similiar.

Oasis is the only odd one out, and he is entitled to not like them, thats his opinion.

They are called pop-punk by no one; you fail. They are NOT sound alikes either, each has a very distinctive voice (I actually kind of like Michelle's), and different styles of music. Yes, even Michelle and Ashlee's styles are different if you know enough to tell them apart.

No. You're wrong;even if they all had the same voice and you played a song by each, I could EASILY pick out which is which. Sure, certain songs can have the same gist to them, but then what is punk rock if that's bad?

They seem to find ways to alter their sounds so they remain interesting.

If I hated pop-punk, I wouldn't be such a humongous fan of bands like The Offspring and Pennywise.

Or Pulley, AFI, Jughead's Revenge, Guttermouth, Deviates, 1208, 59 Times The Pain, Ten Foot Pole, or 88 Fingers Louie.

All I did was name the worst artists imaginable. The fact that it's an opinion goes without saying since this is MUSIC we're talking about here.

And there's actually quite a few Green Day songs (I can count about 7) that are quite good (Warning, The Grouch), and some are phenomenal (Brain Stew, Hitchin' A Ride, When I Come Around). That doesn't make up for the over 100 other songs of theirs that are the most annoying shit ever with the worst vocals I can think of. Their popularity has nothing to do with that. I hated them when they were popular with Dookie and Insomniac, STILL hated them when Warning came out and was a huge failure, and still hate them now that they have one of the most successful albums in recent memory with American Idiot.

Even the worst artists imaginable have at least one decent song.

Except Avril, that is...

The ones you have listed besides the Grouch were all hits, so I don't know how far you've actually gone into their stuff, but I suggest you check out "Westbound Sign" of Insomniac if you haven't already, because that song is awesome.

......she has at least 7 decent songs!
She has profesional artists on her records. Like Josh Freese.......etc
You have to admit that she is talented and she has nice, colorful voice.

Just say "I don't like her". That's it.
I'm sure she is not the worst artist anywhere.

I like Avril Lavigne's music, their melodys and hooks are catchy and some of their ballads are great, but I think she's a terrible terrible artist. She's too comercial and she worries a lot about her image, that, let's face it, that's what made her become famous. Her live/acoustic performances suck, and she doesn't know how to play the guitar, she must know about 3 chords.

Still I like her music and the songs I like best are

- Losing Grip
- Mobile
- Unwanted
- Tomorrow
- Too much to ask
- Naked
- Take me away
- My Happy Ending
- Nobody's Home
- Forgotten
- Fall to Pieces
- Slipped away
- Why

Got both her albums :) Although, I sorta went off her a bit when she told everone at a concert 'get your own style, stop stealing mine' or something. That was kinda mean. But I wasn't there so ... the media could've senastionalised it. Hehe. Not even sure what that exactly means.

Love:

Take Me Away

Coz I'm a BRAT
And I know EVERYTHING
And I TALK BACK
Coz I'm not listening to ANYTHING you SAY

I'd never expect you to like Avril...

That makes no sense at all. And yes, someone can be, but she's just not.
How does it not make sense? Some people here said that they like Avril because she is "hot", not because she is talented. I was saying that there are artists who are "hot" and actually have some talent, too.

And if you want to like somebody based on looks alone, you can do a lot better than Avril Lavigne.
