Does Avril Lavigne Get Enough Credit?


Since the release of her brand new video “Head Above Water”, Avril reclaims her rightful place in the spotlight.

Her career started in 2002, when "Complicated" was released.

Since, she's gone on to become one of the Top 10 highest grossing Canadian artists of all time, bested by only a couple of names you may have heard of: Shania Twain, and Celine Dion.

But what is her legacy? Would she make a female punk Mount Rushmore? How about a female pop Mount Rushmore?

Though you may never see her face photo shopped next to the likes of Joan Jett or Janet Jackson in a visual representation of the previous paragraph, Avril has put together quite the career, including over 50 million records sold, being the 2nd highest grossing Canadian female artist, 8 Grammys, over 200 awards in total, among many other wildly impressive accolades.

So where does that leave us? Her career has hardly slowed down since her explosive debut, yet she manages to fly pretty low on most people’s radars. This week, Reminiscent sorts through the slaps and trots through the bops while discussing exactly that.
