Simple Plan have been cranking out pure, fun, pop-punk jams with cheeky album titles since the early 2000’s. Their most recent effort, “Taking One For The Team,” out today, is just what we were expecting from a band that surprisingly hasn’t had any lineup changes, substitutions, temporary (or “permanent”) hiatuses in their 17 year history. Pickup a copy of the new album on iTunes now!
We’re nostalgic for the days when we literally broke our Simple Plan DVD because we just HAD to watch it every single day after school, begging our parents for a MOTH or Role Model shirt.
Even when they weren’t in heavy rotation on MTV’s “TRL” anymore, Pierre, Chuck, David, Sebastien, and Jeff never quit and neither did our love of Simple Plan’s music. We had a hard time narrowing down our top five Simple Plan songs, but we did it!
1.I’d Do Anything
Great to see Mark Hoppus make a cameo in this! Never gets old.
2. Don’t Wanna Go To Bed
We love the Baywatch tribute and the boyband feel of the video.
3. Can’t Keep My Hands Off You
Shout out to Blackberry phones! OH hey Rivers Cuomo guest vocal!
4. Jet Lag
Nice to see the BSB Airport is getting used for long distance love songs (Blink182 – kind of , BTR, now Simple Plan)
5. Shut Up
Oh man, remember “Making The Video”? We still remember the world premiere of this video like it was yesterday….and sing-screaming it at the top of our lungs because “parents just DON’T understand!!” They totally do though, hindsight is 20/20.
