Avril Is Back! Here's To Never Growing Up

When Avril Lavigne got her start in 2002 (that’s over 10 years of Avril, people!), she was a child playing with grown-up feelings. Now that she’s an adult, she’s got no interest in maturity.

Lavigne’s new single “Here’s to Never Growing Up” is a classic drinking tune, an anthemic shout-along about railing against the onset of maturity in favor of telling people “Yeah, whatever” and screaming Radiohead tunes. (As an aside: She means something like “Creep,” right? Because it’s extremely difficult to blow your lungs out pumping your fist to“Codex”.)

The single comes from her as-yet-untitled fifth album, which is expected to surface some time this summer. The single will be on iTunes on Tuesday, but it snuck onto the Internet a little early. Give “Here’s to Never Growing Up” a listen.

Pop music has always been obsessed with youth, but does it seem like there have been an awful lot of top-tier radio singles singularly fixated on the idea of beating back aging? Are songs like Ke$ha’s “Die Young” a statement on arrested development or just a part of the continued YOLOing of all culture? Or does Avril Lavigne just really want a drinking song of her own, since Pink had already released “Raise Your Glass”?

What’s your take on “Here’s to Never Growing Up”? The last few official “Songs of Summer” came out right around this time, so is it possible Lavigne’s new tune could make a play for airwave dominance? It does seem to be the ideal soundtrack to cruising to the beach with the windows down (with “Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors” next on the playlist, of course).
