The Revenge of 2001: Avril Lavigne Covers Nickelback — LISTEN

Avril Lavigne NickelbackAvril Lavigne has recorded a cover of Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me.” With news like this, I feel it’s easier to make things quick — off like a Band-Aid, I always say. So, there you have it: Avril Lavigne has recorded a cover of Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me.”

We first learned about this misguided bit of millennial nostalgia — which, due to the fact that Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger is Lavigne’s current fiancé, blurs the line between personal and professional — this fall. In October, Anime News Network announced that Lavigne would be providing songs for the soundtrack to the Japanese animated film One Piece Film: Z, which would include a cover of “How You Remind Me.”

On Tuesday, the soundtrack was released by Sony Music Japan… which means that the Internet got its hands on this modern classic. We’re not quite sure yet if we love this (because it’s meta and crazy and reminds us of seventh grade) or hate this (because it makes our ears bleed) or love it because we hate it, but there you go. It’s probably worth a listen.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
