There seems to be no boundaries in the music industry these days. Collaborations between stylistically different artists happen more often than ever, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Marilyn Manson will make a special guest appearance on Canadian pop rock sensation Avril Lavigne's upcoming studio effort.
According to Lavigne, shock rocker will be featured on a "heavier song" titled "Bad Girl." The record itself was described as a diverse one, varying from pop-rock to the heavier stuff.
"The record's really diverse," Lavigne tells Billboard. "We've got these pop-rock tunes, and then these piano ballads with orchestras. I have a heavier song that Marilyn Manson's on called 'Bad Girl,' and then I've got a song called 'Hello Kitty' that sounds like nothing I've done before. 'Here's To Never Growing Up' is one of the rock tunes on it, but it's all over the place."
The yet unnamed follow-up to 2011's "Goodbye Lullaby" was already announced with the release of the new single "Here's To Never Growing Up." Co-written by her fiance Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, the song features an interesting line "Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs." When asked to explain such a line, Lavigne simply said "Creep!"
Speaking of marriage, Steel Panther were officially confirmed as Kroeger's and Avril's wedding band. The comedy glam rockers have revealed they will be crashing the couple's wedding with appropriate hits such as "Asian Hooker," "Gold Digging Whore" and "It Won't Suck Itself," a 2011 hit track featuring Kroeger himself on vocals.
