Throwback Thursday ‘I’d Do Anything’ by Simple Plan (2002)
Simple Plan is a Canadian band made up of members Pierre Bouvier, Chuck Comeau, Jeff Stinco, and Sébastien Lefebvre.
They are originally from Montreal, Quebec and the band was formed in 1999.
"I'd Do Anything" was the second single from their debut album, No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls.
Mark Hoppus from Blink-182 has guest vocals on the song and also appears in the music video. This gave the band immediate cred in the pop/punk music world!
The music video shows a bunch of Simple Plan fans trying to get into an exclusive concert. They're all trying to sway the doorman to let them in. One guy even eats bugs for some reason.
According to Wikipedia, "On the US Billboard Hot 100, "I'd Do Anything" peaked at number 51. It also charted on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart, where it reached number 15."
This song might not have been a huge success as far as the charts are concerned, but the music video was a staple on MTV.
Simple Plan recently announced a Summer tour with fellow Canadian rockers, Sum 41. The tour is cleverly titled, The Blame Canada Tour.
The tour's closest stops for us here in Sioux Falls would be in Council Bluffs, IA, Minneapolis, MN, or Kansas City, MO.
Simple Plan featured Sum 41's lead singer, Deryck Whibley, on their new song, "Ruin My Life". I bet that will be a special moment while on tour!
