Having been a notable figure in pop music for over two decades, Avril Lavigne continues to set the pace for pop artists everywhere. Her debut studio album, Let Go (2002), is the best-selling album of the 21st century by a Canadian artist. With releases such as “Sk8r Boi” and “Complicated”, Lavigne’s lyrics have become known as the anthems of teenage-hood for many over the decades. She is considered a key musician in the development of pop punk music, having paved the way for female-driven, punk-influenced pop music in the early 2000s that still remain influential today on artists and fans alike.
