SIMPLE PLAN "Untitled" 2004

The poignant ballad by Montreal pop-rock act Simple Plan was released as a single from its second album, Still Not Getting Any… and adopted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. “This song is a very personal look at what happens when tragedy hits close to home…” the band, which has known people involved in accidents caused by drunk driving, said in a collective statement. “One of the students at our high school crashed his car driving back from a weekend trip and killed his best friend. It was a very sad time that none of us will ever forget.” Simple Plan also made an eye-opening music video for the song depicting an inebriated young male driver who crashes into a young female driver, killing her and leading to his arrest, and shattered families. — K.B.
