You know a song is going to be seriously twisted when it begins with Marilyn Manson croaking: “Just lay your head in daddy’s lap!” Welcome to “Bad Girl” — Avril Lavigne‘s creepy yet undeniably catchy duet with the goth legend. Surprisingly, it’s also the best cut to surface from her forthcoming fifth studio album yet.
After covering old ground with still enjoyable singles “Here’s To Never Growing Up” and “Rock N Roll”, Avril finally leaves her comfort zone on “Bad Girl”. She dives headfirst into the industrial-pop soundscape, screaming smutty lyrics like “come get it now or never, I’ll let you do whatever” with a vengeance over crunching guitars and Marilyn’s murderous groans and growls.
It’s great to hear that pop’s original bad girl still nows how to push boundaries and rock the fuck out. Listen to the twisted duet after the jump.
