I'm surprised it took the music biz so long to come up with a female version of Blink-182. I don't mean to imply that they are same stylistically, but this is the first successful female "punk" act (punk in the profit-generating way, not the social/political movement way). In fact, it seems like it's the first act they've even tried to bring to the masses, and it seems like such a logical choice.

Avril is an attractive girl with a good enough voice who has attitude. This is a profit making machine. Guys like her because she's hot and has catchy tunes. Girls like her because she's female, has an edge and has catchy tunes. I don't have any huge insights into her arrival, but I just wanted to point out that it's relatively shocking that it took so long to find this niche.

To broaden this post, what do you think will be the next big musical movement? Garage Rock? Electro-pop? Dance-Pop? Polka?
