    My OpinionI think this is one of the best songs Avrile has written(though I do have some other favorites). What I admire most is her depiction of the kind of girl who is so rare to find these days. Someone who knows what she's worth and won't sacrifice her principles or moral for some stud. She knows what love is and she hasn't got it. So she knows to stay away from the dumb prick. I admire her courage and will and her determination to be by herself until she can find someone true. Wish there were more people like that in the world.

    But then again, if wishes were wings, pigs would fly.

    My InterpretationFor me this is about this girl, she's got a boy, and she's all happy with him but suddenly she sees this boy just wanna... you know. Then she says "go to hell" and the realtionship ends, maybe she kinda regrets but then realizes it's better to be alone than with some horny pig.

    I like her music 'cause seems like Avril said what a lot of girls wanted to but anyone dared to. I'm a boy and the girls I know are mostly pretenciois, bitches, or shy, or into something sad or dark. Girl if fell in the lie just learn and wait for someone nice. Love from Guatemala. - Jose

    General CommentI love this song. It's about a guy pressuring her to have sex, and her refusing, and the guy leaving cause all he wanted was sex.
    I really love this song. Girls are giving up their virginity waaayyyy to soon. Like seriously, twelve years old and having sex? I want to punch those girls.
    I'm not one of those "Wait to your married" kind of people, but seriously, why are you having sex when you're still a kid?
    (Btw, I'm only thirteen, and I'm not even close to being that stupid)

    Avril Lavigne, as cliché as it sounds, is my role model. She’s always stuck up for what she believes in, and she's never let anyone push her around, especially of the male persuasion. Her music shaped me into the girl I am. I know that sounds kind of dumb to state, but me, not having a female to kind of pave something there for me to look at as an example makes her music mean a lot in that way. I’ve turned down a lot of guys who I’m happy that I did because frankly, now that I look at it, I would have been dumb if I didn’t. That’s obvious when I look back on it.
