For those of you who like/liked Avril when was it? Before she became all "boyfriend stealing pop" or "sk8er punk"? lol I didn't like the song sk8er boi but her first song complicated was the best, in my opinion. I can definitely relate to that song. :)

I like her punk style... It's really hot.

But song wise, I prefer old Avril.

Okay, I've listened to her music since the beginning, but I'm not a fanfan, I'm enjoy listening to it. And to tell you the truth: I think this album sounds more like her first album, but just more preppier look than punkish and I'm okay with that. I love her second album a lot! I know most of the songs on there. So to me, I don't think she has changed what so ever. How ever, her look as changed, she looks very pretty. When I went to her concert, she was already having a different look, but just because she had a different look, she still acted the same: punky which was cool. (I don't really listen to punk music, just Avril.) So neither, I think she is still trying new things here and there, but to me it sounds more like she's going through old and news roots. She even said it in an interveiw and she knows more about her music than anybody else.

I prefered the old school Avril, I can't stand that 'Girlfriend' song, it's so friggin' catchy! :hea:
And yes Andriel, I agree with you, 'Complicated' was the best song she ever did :)

To tell you the truth... I don't like either styles from her...

I use to like her punk, but she just tried to hard to be punk and now that she is a peppy cheerleader sounding man stealer it kind of shows she was never really that punk to begin with.

I've liked Avril since her first album in 2002. Her new song is really catchy, and I like it. The new album comes out on Monday... I'll have to see if this one can surpass the first two. :)

It's fair to say that Avril Lavigne has completely sold out..

I used to like her when I was 12-13.Not any more.Especially her new style.
I was quite horrified when I first heard Girlfriend.

Joe_16
11-04-07, 12:25
Never really liked her, but at least it suited her. This new stuff is horrid.

Although, she has got alot prettier...woah.

Angel_14
11-04-07, 12:27
She was much better before this "light punk" style. The "Girlfriend" song is just a plain, dull Pop song with a bit of electric guitar in it.

Shark_Blade
11-04-07, 12:37
Girlfriend makes me :yik: but it still makes her sound cute though. And she still looks like a school girl but I must say I prefer her old look. See? Not everything new means better.


btw theres a thread like this before, people did discuss about her changes:

New Avril :tmb:

Her new songs are catchy all she is doing is taking her music into a different direction shes now married and probally wants to experiment with her music.

I think this could be a good start for Avril :p

She's completely changed her style to earn more money!

Alot of rock bands do it. For example, I used to like Razorlight, but on their second album they just completely changed to appeal to a bigger audience. Their new stuff is horrible.

I scream and cover my ears anytime I hear Girlfriend. :eek:

I think I prefer the old avril, i like the 'sad' songs that she did like Happy Ending and Im with you. Girlfriend is a good song but she could definatly do better.

11-04-07, 13:05
well I like the old style and the new. However I dont really see a difference in the 2 besides Girlfriend.

EDIT: just listening the "the best damn thing" in those previews. I like :D

Old avril, although I like her new one too.

I only used to kind of like avril, as she was in to the gothic kind of type, i didnt really like the old avril much and so im really liking the new punk princess avril. Punk princess and ghetto are my type, so shes kind of like me. Hehehe. Lol. Avril is now my favourite singer, and i love her new song girlfriend. I dont miss the old avril, i love the new avril.:)
This is the kind of old avril

hey if noones noticed the new album has been posted on the first page. it has all the full songs so go check them out! also if its possible to add this to the title thread then i think people wont miss out cause not everyone looks at all the posts.

i think what she did to her self was terible.... she was just amazing but now she looks horrible. damn waht shes wearing?

11-04-07, 18:59
Thing is when she started she was what...15? now she is happily married and stuff obviously she has changed. I read she found she enjoyed her set live better when she could do bouncy songs.

saw her girlfriend video on kerrang today,



Man i thought i died, who needs blunt or sharp objects for torture, stick that video on instead.

What makes it amusing is that she didn't even change gradually! Does she think people will just accept it and and not feel slightly mehish about it?

lita212
11-04-07, 20:43
if ya listen to all the full songs on the first page you will realise that she hasnt changed. shes just become more pop punk which imo she has always been except her songs were boy bashing whereas the new stuff is all girl bashing lol.

I prefer "Innocence" Avril. Along with "Nobody's Home", "Innocence" has got to be one of her best songs :tmb:. Just for "Innocence" alone I prefer "new" Avril.

But I'm happy with whatever Avril tries (as long as it's not rap).

Joe_16
11-04-07, 20:46
She has changed. She's completely changed her image.

She will dissapear for a couple of years, and she probably will return with rap.

First time I saw the grilfriend video, I missed her name in the beggining, and I saw all that till the end without knowing that was her, even when the captions appeared I thought that MTV put the wrong artist name..lool

Hey hey you you I don't like your girlfriend... it's catchy..:)

For some reason, I like her newer stuff better. I liked her older stuff as well, but it was too "bad-ass skater chick" for me. :p

complicated was a good song.....everything else was commercial nonsense and she cant sing live to save her life :mad:

sorry but i have to disagree. i went to see avril front row in sheffield at her bonez tour and she sang exactly like she did on the cd but just a bit higher.

12-04-07, 02:43
infact i will base my comment on the fact ive only seen her live on TV, my apologies

I'm a huge fan, and I know I'm biased but,


She's completely changed her style to earn more money!


:yik: Wtf??!!

Thats not why Avril has changed her style. Shes an artist, so shes kinda free to do what she wants. Shes grown, matured, got married and now shes just having fun and having fun with her music.

I like both. I miss her old stuff, but I like to hear her new stuff. And the way Girlfriend is going, she has *not* sold out. ;)

Lita212 is right: I went to see her in Birmingham on her Bonez Tour and shes fantastic! Her voice is higher live though.

Though she does of performances, as all artists do.

I don't like anything about her...

She isn't pretty-to my eyes at least,she only has nice hair.Her voice sucks in lives and her style is too....YUCK!!!Hate her!:hea: :D :D :D

Depends on what performances you're basing it on. :)

I'm afraid I have to say I don't like Avril, period. Music is generic and boring. My opinion of course.
