"...[T]here is somethng about the way these Canadian spunk rockers pop off that's...really fun...." - Grade: A-
Simple Plan: Pierre Bouvier (vocals, guitar); Sebastien Lefebvre (guitar, background vocals); Jeff Stinco (guitar); David Desrosiers (bass instrument, background vocals); Chuck Comeau (drums).
On 2005's LIVE FROM THE HARD ROCK, Canadian pop-punk band Simple Plan charges through an energetic concert recorded in Orlando, Florida. The live setting works in the group's favor, since SP's guitar-heavy anthems, largely taken from STILL NOT GETTING ANY, sound even better stripped of their studio sheen. As a bonus, the disc includes acoustic versions of some of Simple Plan's finest tunes, including "Crazy" and "Welcome to My Life."
