'It's not like we're Paris Hilton' 

'It's not like we're Paris Hilton': "'It's not like we're Paris Hilton'

It's all in the delivery.

Drummer Chuck Comeau is apologetic as he fills in for Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier at the other end of the phone line. Bouvier, he explains, is unavailable due to 'massive diarrhea.'

Convincing? Hardly. Immature? Very. Funny? As hell.

The music on the Montreal-based band's Warner Music debut, No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls is hardly breaking new ground either. Sharp, punchy and loud, Simple Plan's songs detail the woes of post-adolescent alienation to a tried-and-true power-pop soundtrack.

But again, it's all in the delivery. And in that regard, Simple Plan succeed magnificently, with anthems like I'm Just a Kid, The Worst Day Ever and God Must Hate Me hitting their intended teenage targets dead-on.

Accordingly, Simple Plan's execution has copped healthy sales and admiration from Rolling Stone, the New York Times and MTV. Occasionally, the praise is tempered by the perception of a certain calculated element or by backhanded compliments like the following, from the Boston Phoenix: 'These guys deserve their spot at the top of the corporate-punk head.'

Such faint praise does not bother Comeau, who defends the band's corporate-punk status. "
