So to mark this occasion in our career, here’s a playlist of songs by other bands who, after rocking it out for most of their careers, suddenly changed course and dialed it down by releasing a mellow — yet powerful — track.

WATCH: “Opinion Overload” Simple Plan

SimplePlanNEWERSimple Plan are at it again with their video for their latest single, “Opinion Overload.” The video is simple switches back and forth between lead-singer Pierre Bouvier and a show in a small-ish club, and plays true to the lyrics of the song. “I’m doing things exactly how I want to, what part of that don’t you understand? Hey! And I don’t give a d*mn if you don’t approve, what part of that don’t you understand?” If you ask me, I think the song is the band’s reaction to all of the reaction they’ve been getting the last few years for “selling out” and being “too pop heavy.” This song, however, is quite possibly the next punk anthem with undertones of “Perfect”-era SP, a catchy guitar riff over the chorus and a drum beat that you can dance to. Check out the video for yourself below the jump and let us know what you think about the newest Simple Plan song!
