    lol pretty sure not

    Shame, real shame.

    While I must admit that the chorus sounds quite similar, it's stupidly different throughout the rest of the song.

    The song is appalling. And so are the lyrics.

    I never wanted to hurt a woman before I saw that bit of the video where she punches at the camera.

    You should hear the 'French' and 'German' versions where she sings 25% of the song in the respective languages with her annoying American accent. :rofl:

    I do rather love those accents.

    However, Lavigne is an annoying *******.

    It's exactly the same! She totally nicked it. "Hey hey you you I wanna be your boyfriend" and "Hey hey you you I wanna be your girlfriend" - similar much? The melody is also exactly the same apart from Avril Lavigne's goes higher on the 'girl' bit than the other song does on the 'boy' bit. And they say they had a 'musicologist' say the songs were totally different! As if. Annoying little weirdo that she is, she's so irritating in that song and video!

    The Rubinoos song sounds like a direct copy of 'Get Off of My Cloud' by The Rolling Stones. The chorus of Girlfriend sounds a little like that song too therefore Girlfriend also sounds like that Rubinoos song

    The rest of the song sounds completely different.
