Avril has given two covers to the new Japanese film One Piece, her cover of Joan Jett's 'Bad Reputation' which she recorded a while back and a new cover of Nickelback's 'How You Remind Me' which you can listen to here -

I think it's excellent. Such a different arrangement of the song and I think it's really quite different to what she has recorded before. Her vocal delivery is brilliant - she sounds a bit like Alanis Morisette in places.

What do you think?

Sounds good and is a very intresting interpretation of the song. I hope it's not on the new album though as the song is to 'well known'. Hopefully this indictaes a more mature album. An album in the vein of Goodbye Lullaby & Under My Skin would be the best move but as long as she let's these Cheerleader songs die all is good. The lead single is CRUCIAL another Girlfriend or What The Hell and no one will care. She needs to deliver!!!

Avril clearly still has a big fan aswell despite lukewarm sales for Goodbye Lullaby. Despite Smile & Wish You Were Here failing in most countries worldwide the album manged to shift more copies than Madonna's - MDNA, Nelly Furtrado's - The Spirit Indestructible, Kylie Minogue's - Aphrodite & Nicki Minaj's - Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Goodbye Lullaby's also outsold Christina's Bionic and Lotus combined. So there is still A LOT of potential here.

Love it. Her voice sounds really strong and a bit like Alanas Morrisette. I am a big fan of covers and this doesn't disappoint.

I swear to you she would have a UK number 1 with this if she released it! (I know its a cover but for once with an artist ... I think ..I said think, I prefer it to the original)
Thank you for introducing me to this!!

I really like it. Generally, I'm not that big on covers but she really made it her own and redid in her style instead of just copying the original.

Yep, they're engaged, in fact. I suspect that was the reason for this cover, as they were working together.

Extra royalties for the family budget

Im a huge fan of Avril's so I would have always been biased towards the track but saying that I love it, have not stopped listening to it since Tuesday when it was released online. I love how original it is, I know its a cover but she has changed it up so much its like a new all together. I wish it was a single release so we could have got a video and stuff but I surpose i'll have to live with it being for a soundtrack plus its currently climbing the Japan itunes chart which makes me smile
