Avril Lavigne – Sk8er Boi

“Sk8er Boi” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne, released as the second single from her debut album, Let Go (2002). It was written by Avril Lavigne and The Matrix (Scott Spock, Lauren Christy, and Graham Edwards), and produced by The Matrix. The song is a power pop and pop punk track, which lyrically, tells a story told from the singer’s viewpoint about her rocker boyfriend and a girl he knew in high school who rejected him because he was a skateboarder and she was a snob.
The song received critical appreciation, with most commending its hook, calling the song “funny” and “clever”. It also received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance at the 2003 edition. Commercially, “Sk8er Boi” was a success, reaching the top-ten in more than ten countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States (becoming Lavigne’s second top ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart) and sold over 1.8 million copies worldwide. It is placed as the 5th song with the best pop-punk chorus.
