Love It When You Hate Me” by Avril Lavigne

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Avril-lavigne-love-it-when-you-hate-me-lyrics

0:05 Avril is speaking to those who are an alcoholic and have caught feelings for someone hard. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ

0:15-0:20 If you feel like you always take the pain in life, then this lyric will resonate with you the most. Everyone blames you in the relationship. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

0:28 Your drinking habit may get the best of you at times because you fail to see the warning signs of a relationship going sour. However, you still proceed with going out with this person. ๐Ÿคท

0:37 Love how the song picks up in tempo! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Lyrically, you somehow get an adrenaline rush when your relationship bad talks about you. You actually don’t want them to shower you with positive vibes.

0:54 Epic drumming! ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿฅ

1:15 Rapper blackbear’s verses fit well with the theme of the song. At first I was a bit skeptical at whether or not this collaboration would work. But IT works!!!

1:30 Adding his vocals in the background afterwards was a good decision by Lavigne and her producing team which includes her fellow boyfriend/singer, MOD SUN.

1:52 I love how Avril’s vocals had this echo effect when she sang the song’s title. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

2:25 Wow, this song was so good! I can’t wait to hear the rest of her new album when it drops February 25th (click here to preorder/presave)! How about you? I think she’s bringing punk back in 2022!
