The members of Simple Plan don't have anything new to say, but at least it sounds like they're having a good time saying it. They're so full of pep and energy that they even seem to be having fun even when they're singing "God must hate me" or proclaiming that "life is a nightmare." Granted, they sing mostly about typical adolescent trauma

Overview

The members of Simple Plan don't have anything new to say, but at least it sounds like they're having a good time saying it. They're so full of pep and energy that they even seem to be having fun even when they're singing "God must hate me" or proclaiming that "life is a nightmare." Granted, they sing mostly about typical adolescent trauma -- their philosophy is best expressed in "I'm Just a Kid" when they bemoan that "the world is having more fun than me" -- but they do seem to have the knack for putting these issues into words. Simple Plan doesn't break any new ground and doesn't stay revved on all cylinders all the time. This probably won't move you if you consider bands such as blink-182 and Sum 41 to be too mainstream for your tastes, and you might also be disappointed if you're searching for the perfect pop record. But if you're interested in an unpretentious collection of reasonably catchy and energetic songs, then you might want to consider this album.

Except for the rather suggestive cover and title, this cd is awesome! I love every song on the cd, especially "I'd Do Anything", "I'm Just a Kid", and "God Must Hate Me." If you like Blink 182, All American Rejects, or Yellow Card, you'll like this cd.

After hearing such songs as "I'd Do Anything", "Just a Kid", and "Addicted", I enjoyed the songs so much I decided to get the CD. The music is energetic and just fun to listen to. The weird thing is, I'm not a fan of "punk"-rock music at all, and I like this band. I'm more into hard rock and such, so I even surprised myself. This is a good CD, a good band. If you like "punk"-rock music, like Simple Plan already, or have an open-mind, then I highly recommend you get this CD: YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!! (I sure wasn't.)

Simple Plan is the best band in the world! It's punky in your face lyrics are easy to realate to. The guitars and drums are perfect, making you want to get up and sing in front of your mirror (come on... we all do it). This album is loaded with songs that you will want to play over and over again! Perfect for those who like punky music, but aren't into hardcore punk. (Plus, Pierre and David are H-O-T, hot, Hot,HOT!!!!!!! LOL!)

Simple Plan rocks! I heard them live for the first time at this year's Pop Disaster Tour and bought their CD immediately after. This CD is great to have if you like punk rock music.

Simple Plan's "No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls" CD is truly outstanding! Each song offers a new style of rythym and creative lyrics. The guitar and drum beats are amazing, and change for every song. The lyrics provide interesting topics and actually make me think. The lyrics also provide true facts and real issues that are going on in our world today. This CD is made for teenagers because most of the songs discuss teenage issues and relate to teens the best. The group members' true personalities come out in their songs. Simple Plan has continued to amaze me as a group, and this CD just shows how awesome of a band they are!

Man, what can I say about Simple Plan? They ROCK! They're far, far away from prep music and different from hard-core rock... They're thoughts are of a normal teenager; one that DOESN'T lead the freakin "charmed" life of popularity! You can relate to A LOT of their songs! GO SIMPLE PLAN!

simple plan is the biggest poser-band ever!! lets face it, every song is the same (stupid and melo-dramatic) this is just a way for rich preps who wish they were bad skater-punks to "rebel" against their rich parents (even though they are the ones who buy the cd's for the kids!!!)

this cd is great. the music is catchy and if you are into pop punk then you should definately consider this album. I recently bought it and i still have not stopped listening to it. Seriously, what are you waiting for. BUY IT!

This CD is awesome. If you like punk you will love simple plan. I got their CD after seeing them in a commercial. Their music is fun and they rock!

This is one of the greatest cds that I have ever listened to. If you're into punk rock music, u should get this cd. Simple Plan has the greatest lyrics and music. It is a great example of punk music. It gets me pumped up and excited. There is no one song that is bad. All of them are awesome. The song I most enjoy is I'm just Kid. This cd has great music and a nice pace. I recomend this to everyone.

This CD is so cool. The lyrics are about all the things that happen in teenagers' lives, but this awesome band pairs the lyrics with happy, energetic music and the outcome is nothing short of perfection. One listen and you'll be hooked. This band is the best, they are so cool to their fans and they are great performers. This CD is my favorite and it is well worth the purchase price, so buy it and the Simple Plan Live album. You will not be disappointed. Also checkout the band that Chuck, Pierre, & later David were in before Simple Plan named "Reset" and their CD "No Limits".

Simple Plan's new CD will go down as one of the greatest punk CD's ever!!!!!!!!

This album is a rehash of every other post punk revival album their is... This albums has basic poppy guitar riffs and is crammed with lyrics about teenage problems, so it's really nopthing inventive. I don't think the guys in this band even attempted to try something a little different.... Punk is dead. it died about 20 years ago/ Overall very untalented and weak release
