Avril Lavigne dropped the video for “Here’s To Never Growing Up” on Thursday (May 9), giving visuals to the raucous anthem. While the clip hammers home the point, she recently explained how the rebellious song became the first single from her forthcoming album.
The video, which finds Lavigne reliving her youth, opens with Lavigne sitting by high school lockers belting out the chorus.
“Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs/With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love/Got a bottle of whatever but it’s getting us drunk/Singing here’s to never growing up.”
