The song is featured in the EA Sports hockey game NHL 2003.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Wendy Morgan and features cameos from Avril Lavigne, Gob, Sum 41, and Swollen Members.[1] It became one of the top music videos of 2002 in Canada. It features several other Canadian punk bands and artists as cameos.

This was also the first music video which Avril Lavigne appeared in. The video caused some controversy when Tom Thacker of Gob mooned the camera near the end of the video, although it was frequently mistaken to be Lavigne. This misconception was referenced to when Lavigne pulled her pants halfway down to reveal MMVA written there at the 2003 MuchMusic Video Awards.

Awards and Nominations[edit]

The video was nominated for five awards at the 2003 MuchMusic Video Awards, winning for MuchLoud Best Rock Video and video director Wendy Morgan winning for Best Director.

The video also reached the #1 spot on MuchMusic Countdown for the week of October 4, 2002,[2]
