The punk pop craze continued to sweep across US shopping malls and MTV during the early twenty-first century, owing to the emergence of acts such as Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based Simple Plan. Following in the footsteps of fellow Canadians Sum 41, Simple Plan's roots lay in an earlier group, Reset, which included vocalist Pierre Bouvier and drummer Chuck Comeau, back in the mid-90s (when both were only 13 years old).
Despite touring with MxPx, Ten Foot Pole, and Face To Face (as well as issuing a 1997 debut, "No Worries"), both Bouvier and Comeau left the band so they could finish their education. It was not long before their desire to play music returned, resulting in the formation of Simple Plan soon afterwards. Rounding out the line-up were guitarists Jeff Stinco and Sebastien Lefebvre, as well as former Reset bass player, David Desrosiers.
After building a following by playing alongside headline acts on the 2001 edition of the Vans Warped Tour, the quintet signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
When they released their 2002 Lava Records debut, "No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls," the band more than just hit the ground running. Just inside of a year, Simple Plan crossed five continents and played more than 300 shows. Along the way, the band picked up a few hundred thousand fans, topped the Alternative New Artist Chart, kicked it on MTV TRL, scored a Gold album in home country
Canada as well as Japan, and sold out their first ever tour of Japan. Sprinkle in a few trips to the hospital, a dozen nights spent sleeping on airport floors, one tour bus in a ditch and one broken-down in the desert and the method to madness becomes clear... this band is absolutely pummeling the pavement. And that's the edited version.
