Sk8er Boi free piano sheet music by Avril Lavigne
About the song
"Sk8er Boi" is the title of a song by pop punk artist Avril Lavigne, featured as single number two from her first album, the album titled "Let Go", released in the year 2002. The single has been written by Lavigne in collaboration with a group called The Matrix, who also helped produce the song.
A successful song since its very release, "Sk8er Boi" has been praised for its hook, as well as being called "funny and clever". Since Avril’s time with the label Arista Records hasn’t yielded anything useful in a year, her switch to the punk rock scene due to the collaboration with The Matrix on the song "Complicated" has been welcomed, proof of that being the success that both "Complicated" and later "Sk8er Boi" have had commercially.
Being a power pop song about a girl impervious to the advances of a "skater boy", the song was well received by the young audience, but many critics have attacked the senseless and simple lyrics. Despite all that, critical appreciation has followed, being called "peppy but not overbearing", as well as "a classic high energy pop song"
"Sk8er Boi" has been voted as one of her best songs overall, also getting nominated for five Grammy Awards in 2003, winning the 2003 Kids’ Choice Awards, as well as "Best Pop Song" at the Socan Awards.
Charting top ten in charts from countries such as Australia, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Netherlands, Scotland, UK, "Sk8er Boi" has topped the US Billboard Mainstream Top 40 charts and got certified Platinum in Australia, Brazil and New Zealand, its music video also getting Platinum status.
