Avril Lavigne is a girl who knows what she wants. And when it came to writing her eagerly awaited third album, 'The Best Damn Thing,' she had one very clear goal in mind --- to make it fun. While touring in 2004 for her last album, 'Under My Skin,' which sold more than 8 million copies worldwide, the Canadian-born punk-pop dynamo found that her favorite songs to play were the faster, more up-tempo songs so she resolved to make a record that captured the kind of high-spirited, full-throttle energy that she loved to unleash on-stage.
