Released: 16th December 2002.
Are you sick of the dominance of Popstars - The Rivals, and wishing failure for all three acts who found fame on the show? There is an alternative (and I'm not talking about Blue's lame effort with Elton). If you want to stop this travesty happening, buy "Sk8er Boi" by Avril Lavigne. It's just as good as the previous single, whilst also being sufficiently different to prove she isn't a one trick pony. Expect it to be a big hit, possibly even a surprise alternative Christmas No. 1.
Following the Top 3 success of "Complicated", Avril Lavigne brings out her second single - and what a single it is! Mixing guitars, pop and her affection for skater boys, Avril manages to deliver a song which is immediately enjoyable. A Top 5 placing looks likely, but at this time of year, nothing can really be guaranteed.
