Even sadder - I think it's intentionally misspelled "Sk8er Boi" or some crap like that. "She's punk! She's rock! Oh, wait, that's right - she's neither."
Cuz when you're Punk you're 2 HARDCORE 2 spell words regularly.
The Grammy eligibility date is Oct.15, which is pretty stupid considering that having the awards for 2002 should include the LAST TWO AND A HALF DAMN MONTHS OF 2002. This is what cost U2 two years ago...All That You Can't Leave Behind came out on Halloween, or else it definitely would've won album of the year.

It's out today in the UK, but unless we want to buy an import it won't be seen stateside until February 2006. My gut reaction from one listen is it's not as good as his first album, but he'll probably never get THERE again.
