Look, guys, I don't care if you hate Avril Lavigne or not. Watch the video on mute for all I care. You need to watch the music video for "Rock N Roll". It plays out like some twisted version of Tank Girl or something and also features both Billy Zane and Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years. Why are they there? I don't even know!

If you haven't seen it yet, just watch it. It's five minutes long and is both the best thing Avril Lavigne has ever done and the worst thing she has ever done. Yes, even worse than marrying Chad "I'm not working for McDonald's" Kroeger.

This should be fun, thanks. And it sucks how the individuals using the internet are so uptight that you need all those disclaimers to be given a chance, but I understand.

Edit: Yup, that was a fun Scott Pilgirm-ish video, and Avril is still on the top of my list of women I wish I could pork. But musically she's become boring, which is fine since I'm not a big fan, but I enjoy her first two albums, they are two light hearted pop classics.

That dog has a drinking problem, and then there's lesbo action in his memory. Delightful!

Beginning was the best part, half because of the acknowledgment and half because that phone is so fucking stupid it fits the video perfectly

WTF was that at the beginning? "Oh my Sony phone is ringing"

That video seriously took a downhill turn after that bar scene as well.

I don'T know if you guys knew that, but the SONY XPERIA is the most rocking phone on the market right now.

However the video is fun, and at least you get the feeling that everybody involved had fun making it. Also apparently Avril Lavigne still exists, who knew?

Did she bat away a baby with a tray? Ok.

Avril Lavigne should NEVER act in anything ever again.

So I have no idea what Avril Lavigne's discography sounds like since Sk8ter Boi, but this doesn't seem that different...like ten years later. Maybe sonically a bit more filled out, but it doesn't seem Avril Lavigne has aged and grown with grace and is struggling to maintain that bubblegum punk appeal she had so long ago. But then again, any kind of punk music is probably the hardest to age gracefully in.

Also the video had some nice production, but most of the jokes fell kind of flat. And everything after the diner was terrible, forgoing the tank girl sendup to instead being a wannabe meme generator.

I am pleased to announce that indie music star Avril Lavigne will be coming exclusively to the home of indies, Sony PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, for her console debut this Fall.

Bringing together dynamic, innovative indie visuals and confusing, xperia-inspired indie audio, her revolutionary indie videos will rock the charts and touch your indie hearts.

Her doesn't fit her attitude at all. It's ironic that her song isn't rock n' roll at all. Absolutely disgusting.

The November Rain guitar solo moment was pretty funny, mostly thanks to irony.

Man, remember back before Avril's first album debuted and she was just a pretty girl with a great voice and a handful of folksy acoustic demos to her name? Back when it actually seemed like she could be a huge talent?

Who could have known that she'd turn out to be dangerously retarded?

"Oh my new Sony phone is ringing just let me pause my The Last Of Us game while I plug in my Sony MDR-V6 Headphones and take this call, oh by the way Singstar is freaking awesome and you can sing along to some of my songs on it! (Only on Playstation by the way!)."

Well, that video was entertaining. Entertaining enough to allow me to ignore that awfully generic background music they put to it, anyway.

I think it's pretty funny how she used to think she was punk and now she thinks this is rock & roll. Do rap, jazz & classical also sound just like pop music?

Her fanbase are dumb as peanuts and/or teenage girls. She is pretty much whatever she tells them she is.

Judging by the contrast between the video and the song playing over it I suspect the director of video is probably more to credit for this madness than Lavigne.

Anyway. Winnie. ♥

The bit in the car was kinda funny. Little disappointed the lobster character was so underdeveloped. That's just lazy writing.
