A French-Canadian Pop-Punk band from Montréal, Québec, also known as SP consisting of:
Pierre Bouvier: Lead Vocals
Jeff Stinco: Lead guitarist
Sébastien Lefebvre: Rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist
David Desrosiers: Bassist and backing vocalist
Chuck Comeau: Drummer
Despite the fact the band has had a lot of criticism, they are nothing like the 'whiny, emo, bitches' they have been called and labeled as. Instead they write and play music which they have experienced throughout their lives, most likely when they were teens.
They have also never once called themselves 'Punk' and never intend to.
In fact, they are even releasing an album on June 21st and have done collaborations on songs on the upcoming album with:
Can't Keep My Hands Off You feat. Rivers Cuomo of Weezer
Jet Lag (English Version) feat. Natasha Bedingfield
Jet Lag (French Version) feat. Marie Mai
Simple Plan, even have their own foundation (The Simple Plan Foundation) to help kids of any age whether they are a victim of abuse, need help taking off drugs, have cancer or any other diseases etc. SP do charity concerts and charity work, they have been on tour with other bands and musicians such as Avril Lavigne and Sugar Ray.
Even though haters had thrown objects at them on stage, they never stopped playing.
Sometimes, it's just the case people say they 'love' Simple Plan, just of the looks and fitness of the boys, which in fact they have only listened to, or heard maybe one or two
songs by them.
Crazy Not-So-Fan Girl: OMG, David and Pierre are like SOOOOO HOT! I LOVE SP!!
Me: *sighs* how many songs have you heard by them?
Crazy Not-So-Fan Girl: Uhmm, I can't remember... but aren't they like SOOO HOT?!
Me: They may be good looking, but a proper Simple Plan fan would at least know one song by them or more...
Hater: Ugh, Simple Plan suck so much, I don't even know why you like them, they have no talent what so ever, they whine about everything...
Me: It's nice to see you have an opinion, but keep it to yourself. Because first thing is, I can like whichever bands I want to like. Second, they do have talent, and lots of it, otherwise they wouldn't be able to play guitar, drums and sing to actually create a band and the third thing is. They do not whine about everything, there has only been maybe 3 songs where they seem more emotional than the rest.
Hater: ... geez, they're such gay faggots then.
Me: ha, no they aren't, they've either all got girlfriends, had girlfriends or at least married.
