When a fan asked if they would tour with Avril, they responded "Hell No", and then Joel said, "I'd be having a good day
until someone calls me Avril Lavigne."
On Total Request Live:
Benji: Next at number 5 we have Avril Lavigne with "Sk8er Boi".
Joel: That's skater with an 8 and boy with an i! Like
Joel: Like, for sure! That totally rocked!
Benji: She's so punky!
Kenny from Starting Line:
At a recent show:
Kenny: "Do you guys like Avril Lavigne?"
Kenny: "Yea, i think she's a c*nt!"
Dereck from Sum41:
Fan: So yeah are you friends with her or what?
Deryck: Not really, she just kind of follows us around
Then why does she tell everyone that you guys are friends?
Deryck: how the f*ck am i supposed to know. She's crazy.
Iann Robinson of MTV News:
"Lavigne is sickening to me. She's everything that's wrong with music today. She's a manufactured voice. She claims she's
punk, but she doesn't even know who the Ramones are. I hate to admit that she was big in 2002, but she was. Even though I
don't like her, she had a good year and will probably continue to do well."
Jordan of New Found Glory:
Jordan is quoted to saying that Avril "sucks dick, and ruined punk"
In an interview, John was asked what he thinks about chicks playing their own instruments and Avril was mentioned and
then John answered:
John: "Oh, Avril doesn't really play the guitar.(snickers) She only does so in the video to make herself
Interviewer: "No collaborattions with Avril in the future?"
John: "Avril? No. Oh wait, maybe
logistically selling ties. Of course I'd design them. She'd just wear them."
"That's like saying Avril is rock. That's not fucking rock.....If she's trying to be rock and her idol is Johnny Reznick,
I don't think she'll get very far."
Shirley Mandon of Garbage:
At the Houston, Tx No Doubt/Garbage/Distillers show, right before Shirley Manson sang "stupid girl", she got all giddy
and happy and started skipping around the stage saying "Avril Lavigne is a stupid girl!"
Chester from Linkin Park:
Said sarcastically, "Move over guys. Make room for Avril Lavigne, she's a big star. We're only a little rock band."
Wow, a lot of people hate Avril!
