This was made inevitable with their engagement, but we can’t say we thought it would come this soon or that it would be so on-the-nose, but here we have it: Avril Lavigne has covered her soon-to-be husband Chad Kroeger‘s super-sized breakout hit “How You Remind Me,” and for an upcoming anime film called One Piece Film Z, at that! Avril takes the brutish, blustery anthem and turns it into a nice and thoughtful piano ballad. She throws in a few cymbal flourishes and — well, it’s really not so bad! If a series of finely executed covers is how Chavril chooses to remind us of their love, that would be just fine by us.
You’re up next, Chad, so what’s it gonna be: are you going to sing/moan those sassy “so what’s” from “What The Hell”? Lyrically “Skater Boi” might feel like a stretch, but it’s got plenty of that Nickelback grind? If you really want to know, though, our money’s on a grunge-d up “It’s Complicated.” That would kill.
