What do you think of her and the song?

bad, and bad. And the fact that she did the song with multiple languages for the chorus makes me cry.

That song is one of those guilty pleasures for me. I hated it to begin with and I know it's such a teenage girl's song but I love it now.

Avril is beautiful. I've loved her since her first album. BTW, on her new album check out the song Contagious. It's fucking awesome. Sounds like Blink's - Whats my age again.

I'm sorry but I cant tolerate that song! i listened to it once, and thats all i could take!!! What kills me is she tries to act all punk and everything, and people really honestly believe she is! Yeah with her backup dancers and all, totally punk rock!

She hasn't tried to act punk rock since her first album...

I loved 'Under My Skin' but this album is horrible. 'Girlfriend' is so artificial and disgusting. "I'm motherfucking princess" What the hell!? Then some Gwen Stefani singing... A huge disappointment for me.

I youtubed it cause I had never heard it and I ended up watching it several times. It was great. I'm sure the song wasn't serious. Seemed to be on the sarcastic side to me...or maybe I'm just making up excuses for it since I loved it so much.

Word. It's fucking catchy as hell, and there's not a doubt in my head that you guys are acting too worried about how "poppy" she is. Deal with it, it sounds great.

Do my eyes deceive me or is she actually doing the Arrested Development chicken dance at 2:22?

Avril's song "Girlfriend" sucks...it's just a commercial song for the mainstream. It's catchy and everything, but musically it fails.

Yeah, I mean, why would anyone want to appeal to a mass audience? That's so ridiculous and stupid.

I don't care if it's poppy or not, as I like plenty of pop... I just think it's a really lame/poorly done song.

You completley got me wrong, sorry if I didn't make myself understandable: I wasn't saying it's "ridiculous appealing to a mass audience", I just think it's ridiculous doing it with such a shitty song. That's not what I call being an artist.

Llamas

You're right... Avril is capable of writing catchy pop tunes. This song doesn't fit in that category to me. Hearing her yell "HEY HEY YOU YOU!" is just annoying... it's just overproduced Britney Spears type crap. No, actually I found some of Britney's stuff more interesting than this, too. haha.

You guys only like it because you imagine she's singing it to you.

Really, it's no better or worse than your typical radio pop-punk song. It's fun when it's on but it's not something I'd go out of my way to listen to.

Em. I'll File it under "Thats one of the most musically devoid, pathetic peices of utter radio pop trash, fucking ever". Because it is.

It's not like the hook is even catchy, its just fucking annoying. It's bad even by her standards, I mean, she had some actual songs before this over-produced rubbish.

"hhhheeeeeEEYY HEYY YOU YOU!"
Fuck right the fuck off.

edit: only reading the thread after this made me realise llamas said the same thing. :high5:

There's a video somewhere of me and Ninths dansing [and cutting] to sk8er boi and Girlfriend brings many moar luls. But yea, hating on Avril awards 20 million punx points, good job Sid Vicious is thumbs upping you in his grave.

sk8r boi is so bad it's funny, though. Girlfriend is just bad in a boring way... :(

Someone link to a high res version of this video for a voucher for a free internetz. Youtube quality is ruining my fantasies of me and Avril running away from it all to get married against her parents' wishes 'cause they just don't understand.

BTW, I'm kicking Nieh out of my cool club and inviting Mike now that he meets my Buckethead requirements and likes this song.

It's a fucking genius pop song. You people need to get over your artistic snobbiness.

This track is in fucking "Hit That" cleverly-constructed territory. It's annoying as hell, and blatantly commercial, but it's written well.

Not that Avril wrote it or anything, of course.

Llamas
05-20-2007, 07:30 PM
I disagree. And there's no snobbery involved. Most here have admitted that songs like s8r boi are even fun. And it's not genius at all.

Venom Symbiote
05-20-2007, 07:40 PM
This song is Sk8er Boi. It's just as annoying, but no more.

Llamas
05-20-2007, 07:44 PM
It's much more annoying. Sk8er boi had a decent melody and a decent guitar progression. There's no yelling, and it's at least got a little more rock sound to it unlike the utter pop. And the melody is obnoxious in Girlfriend.

Nina

At first I was like wtf loool sux 2 b her!!1
But then it grew on me.

I liked her first two albums. I own them and I listen to them...sometimes. But I'm not gonna get her third album. It doesnt sound like an appealing thing to do.

The only thing that annoys me about Girlfriend is the line
"She's, lyke, so whateveeeer..."
That just DOES NOT belong in any lyric. Ever.

But other than that, it's catchy, I wanna dance to it, and the
IN A SECOND U'LL BE WRAPPED AROUND MAH FINGAAH
CUZ I CAN CUZ I CAN DO IT BETTAAH
part is abso-fucking-lutely amazing.

YES.
The first time I heard it I thought it was just more shitty pop... Shit...
Then I found myself not changing the channel when the video came on and the song being in my head constantly.
You all wish you were as hot and successful as Avril.
I know I do.

I like poppy music as much as the next guy but if that was the only standard I had I would like anything on the radio. Like others said, it has no lyrical depth and is nothing new.

Haha, I like how through out the video she hates on rich poppy girls while doing Britney-esque dances.

Oh and the song? Yeah the song is pretty horrible.

This song isn't rock or punk rock ( i don't know what kind of music she thinks she plays ). But in comparison with her old songs this song is really POP song.

This song is POP, I think the reason she went POP is because she figured she'd get a bigger fan base of something:confused: .


AAH I hate that song. Thats even worse than other Avril songs. Gives me creeps. :D:D

Luckly for you the song is falling off the charts pretty quickly now.
