No Pads, No Helmets, No. Just No.
Anyways, great video as always, I totally forgot how much Simple Plan’s music was awful, this is seriously the most soulless and forgettable crap I’ve ever listened to. Listening to Simple Plan made me miss Limp Bizkit, at least they had some fucking energy.
Just a suggestion for the next ”Regretting the Past” … I’m just gonna say it, Chinese Democracy would be a pretty good pick.

back in the day, I was a fan of “I’m Just A Kid”. Why…..because I was a lonely teenager who had no friends and the line “I waited till 11 just to figure out that no one would call”. I related very much to that line.

Of course now I see this music as nothing but disgustingly simple.

Kinda surprised you didn’t bring Todd in the Shadows in for a crossover. He may be the one person on the planet who hates Simple Plan more than you :p

I know that pan pizza(aka rebel taxi) is a fan of simple plan and I love how he makes fun of himself for it. Love the episode though I looked up the lyrics to that song I don’t wanna go to bed and after 48 seconds after they repeated I don’t wanna go to bed for the sixth time I was like*yeah they suck* and finally last and foremost thank you for putting my comment in this video your truly awesome and I was loving every second with horror guru and him being evil(I could totally believe that). Now next… Read more »

It really is amazing how famous Simple Plan got when there were way, way better pop punk acts like Less Than Jake, Teenage Bottlerocket, Bill the Welder, The Lillingtons, and Descendents all out there waiting for hungry young minds to latch onto. Kinda like how the world of heavy metal is so vast and wonderful, yet people still inexplicably flock to trash like (post-Cowboys, non-Trendkill) Pantera and (all of) Volbeat.

I was one of those kids that was the right angsty teenager age when this music was popular. It was on a fair bit, since, as I mentioned, the CRTC states that Canadian stations must play at least 40% Canadian content. I remember the 13 and 14 year old me relating to the songs like I’m Just a Kid and Perfect, being one of those who thought my life was oh so awful and that the world was against me. Even my family will tell me that I was pretty much a prick when I was 14 (one of my… Read more »

Meant to say “I was a little angsty shit” in the third paragraph there.

Love this series! I was in my twenties when this was popular, and for many people there is this sort of weird period where you first realize that the music you were into that was popular during your youth and high school years is losing popularity, and you kind of cling to it and reject the “new” stuff that’s popular…some people never leave this phase, but people who are really into music will get beyond that and come back to appreciate new music with an even more open mind and greater respect for quality artists. Having said all that: I’m… Read more »

I wondered why I never got into Simple Plan, I thought it was just because they were boring.

Now I know it’s because despite being in their target demographic…I couldn’t relate to them or even agree with their point of view. Despite being a white, middle-class girl, I knew that I had a life good despite having an alarm that woke me up at 6am…or in spite of it even, since it gave me the chance to have breakfast with my Dad in the morning.

Yup, nothing says “balls” like a song called “God Must Hate me.” No pads, no helmets, no understanding of irony?

I was in my twenties when this came out, so thank god I missed being its target demographic. I did own a Good Charlotte album, though. :/

Honestly, if you were a fan of this band and you blame “being in it’s target demographic” you realize that just makes you a huge tool right? Like, I was in this bands target demographic, but I never was a fan or even close to one, because I knew right away they were fake ass punks, fake ass musicians, making fake ass music for fake ass people. When everyone in school listened to this, I was listening to Black Flag, Minor Threat, The Circle Jerks, Bad Brains, you know, real punk. Being in a target demographic is not an excuse.… Read more »

And you’re the one preening about how you were such a badass as a teenager, listening to real punk.

Hi! I was one of the teenage “black sheep” that came into possession of this album at some point in my teen years. Even then I knew it was 90% whiney, but sometimes you needed whiney (and anxi-y), especially if you were not one of the “cool kids” and had very few friends to hang with. Basically, for me, MS/HS was outcast central in a WASP town, i.e. anything different is SHUNNED at best. So yeah, whiney, but whiney is still somewhat better then some of the flappid empty-headed and soul-less club music we’re getting in every genera now. Now… Read more »

I hope you’ll be covering “Chinese Democracy” by Guns N’ Roses.
