Avril Lavigne's Newest Hit, "Bite Me"
Album: Bite Me
Artist: Avril Lavigne
Label: DTA Records/Elektra Records
Non-Airable Tracks: Yes
Avril Lavigne’s new single “Bite Me,” will give you waves of nostalgia to songs such as “Sk8er Boi” and “Girlfriend,” while also coming off as timeless and fresh. It focuses on the artist’s experiences with a relationship that went awry due to emotional manipulation and the power she has since stepped into. Hence, this catchy tune is situated on this concept of personal growth, as the artist contemplates her self-worth and refuses to return to toxic lifestyle choices. At the same time, listeners are taken back to a much simpler time in their lives with Lavigne’s classic rebellious, poppy-rock sound. Overall, I enjoyed this song as it showcased this empowering message of upholding certain standards of self-respect, despite how tempting a particular relationship may seem.
