Canadian pop-punk band Simple Plan set the tone for punks around the world with the release of their debut album, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls. Today marks the record’s 18th anniversary, and featured on the iconic album were singles “Perfect,” “I’d Do Anything” (feat. Mark Hoppus), “Addicted” and, of course, “I’m Just A Kid.”
This emo anthem had its place in pop culture and can be heard in movies such as Cheaper By The Dozen, Grind and The New Guy. In honor of No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls turning 18, test your knowledge below to see if you remember “I’m Just A Kid.”
