Addicted

Album: No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls (2002)
Charted: 63 45
  • A track from the golden age of pop-punk, "Addicted" is about the heartbreak of being dumped. The guy in the song did everything he could to make it work, but she still left. No matter how hard he tries, he can't forget her because he's addicted to her love.
  • Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier doesn't quite finish the word when he tells the girl, "I'm a dick," before clarifying, "I'm a dick-ted to you." This bit dates back to 1990, when Red Peters asked, "How's your dick... tation machine" in his song "How's Your Whole... Family?"
  • A track from their debut album, this was Simple Plan's third single, following "I'm Just A Kid" and "I'd Do Anything." The band had the song written by the time they signed a deal with Lava Records in 2000.
