#ThrowbackThursday: Avril Lavigne – ‘Girlfriend’

There’s no doubt about it, Avril Lavigne‘s single, ‘Girlfriend’, was (and still is) a monster of a tune! It’s shocking to think that this song was released 10 years ago, this year, but it genuinely feels timeless.

The punchy guitar riffs, in-your-face vocals and sassy lyrics are the recipe for the perfect pop rock track which is probably one of the reasons it was such a massive global success. This song was so huge upon its release that the music video held the record for the most views on YouTube, worldwide, at one point. (If for any reason you’ve lived under a rock for the past decade and haven’t seen it, check out the music video below.)

What’s more, Avril Lavigne has announced that she is hoping to release some new music this year, after some time away due to ill health; it’ll certainly be a pleasure to have her back!
