New Song of the Week: 12-17-21

Avril Lavigne is back to her Punk-Pop roots! (Good.)

She originally released “Bite Me” last month, and I honestly wasn’t feeling it.  Although I was happy to hear that she was going back to the Pop/Punk sound that made her famous, I felt like this song was a bit too juvenile for her. I mean, she’s my age (late 30’s) and the song and feel was more suited to someone in their late teens or early twenties.  Then she dropped the acoustic version today, and I’m liking it a lot better than the original version.

 

Avril sounds great, and looks amazing as well.  I know she had a rough bout with Lyme disease, as well as a failed marriage to Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger.  I’m glad to see that she’s back to fighting form!  After hearing this, I’m definitely looking forward to her upcoming album.  She says it’s going to be “100% Rock and Roll”, so we’ll see what she’s got for us in 2022!

 

New Song of the Week: 11-20-21

I’ve been a fan of Bad Wolves since they dropped their first big single- the cover of The Cranberries “Zombie” in 2017.  I mean, who doesn’t love a rock supergroup?

When Tommy Vext exited the band, a lot of people wondered if they could recreate the magic with new lead singer DL Laskiewicz, and after their new album “Dear Monsters” dropped a few weeks ago, I’m thinking they totally can.

 

Their new single “Lifeline” is definitely one of my favorite new Modern Rock songs this year so far:

I’m loving the new vocals, the energy, and the relatable message that I know a lot of people- especially these past couple of years- can relate to. Also, it’s got a radio-friendly vibe, and being a radio girl, I always appreciate that!  I feel like this song could almost be a crossover hit. And if that does happen, people will complain that they’re sell-outs.  Haters gonna hate.
