An addendum to a song I hate

I had completely forgotten about this song until I heard it at the gym the other day. It was playing so loud that I actually heard it over my ipod.

I don't hate this song for the obvious reasons; it's horrible and contrived teen pop, because I am completely okay with teen pop. But I thought about how awful the lyrics are. Did Avril Lavine really need to tell the story of unrequited love from an unpopular guy's point of view as though it's a fresh take? It would have been nice to hear this story from the female's point of view. She strikes me as one of those women that doesn't "have any female friends."

I guess I can't complain about someone not being original when I am making fun of Avril Lavine.
