Title-Banner3.png


A celebration of Pop-rock music from the early 2000s and the women who inspired a generation with their catchy guitar riffs, rockstar attitudes, and questionable fashion choices.

And possibly anything I don't already know...whew I'm ready.
Also, I literally just finished an episode of Buffy with Bif Naked performing, and was like, "I really need to check out more of her music." Love the timing.

I am absolutely thrilled "Confessions" snuck into the rate for Lindsay after the "final" songlist was posted. Especially since it didn't replace First.

Was there any other late changes to the Spotify list because I was playing it back when you first posted that songlist.
 
We get an 11 for Canada AND U.S. right? RIGHT!??!
Haha. Unfortunately not!

Yeah I don't know why but for some reason during the entire time I was making the list I assumed Confessions came out in 2006. And then when I was compiling my "songs we could have rated" list which i'll be highlighting during the voting period, I realized it was actually released in 2005 and added it in last minute. That was the only change though, and I think it's a much better choice than Over.
 
I don't know how to vote fairly on this as I own most of the albums these are on and about 20 of the 53 songs are 10/10.

Do I have to invent a new voting scale as I give a substandard Avril song a 1 and explain "well, on a logarithmic scale it reflects the 10% inferiority compared to the next track in the list?" instead of only giving it a 9.5 instead of 10?

Just be me haha
 
This whole rate is a nostalgia trip, but So Yesterday especially is really doing it for me right now

If you're over me, I'm already over you
If it's all been done, what is left to do?
How can you hang up if the line is dead?
If you wanna walk, I'm a step ahead
If you're moving on, I'm already gone
If the light is off, then it isn't ooooooon

When I was shuffling this playlist I heard a few songs where I was like "oh that's who sings that" and it's always funny how that kind of completes the puzzle and I add it to my 'recent discoveries' playlist because now I've fully discovered it, even though I was singing the words like a longtime fan.
