New Avril Lavigne – “Girlfriend”

Nice to hear marriage hasn’t mellowed Ms. Avril. We prefer brat Lavigne to ballad Lavigne but doesn’t everybody (save Diane Warren)? The first tune from The Best Damn Thing is sorta “I Want Candy” meets Joan Jett. Plus, she says “motherfucking,” which, as you can see, every MP3 blog is sure to mention. We’ll be sick of it in a month, but it’s harmless fun for now. Grab it at Brugo. And AvrilLavigne.com is sorta weird — that Avril Mastercard is just a little too prominent. How irresponsible to encourage all the little sk8er girls to run up a bill at hottopic.com.
