If you're a fan of Avril Lavigne, you might want to take a listen to her new single, "Bite Me". It's the lead single off her upcoming album, Love Sux, and it's available now on all platforms.
The pop-punk singer recently opened up about her new single. She says it's a love song. Though she doesn't specify whether she plans to threaten physical assault on her romantic partner, it sounds like it could be a possibility.
In an interview with Billboard, Lavigne says that the lyrics of "Bite Me" are more direct than her previous anthems. However, she's not sure how many people will relate to her lyrics.

Lavigne and producer Travis Barker have a chemistry that's infectious. Barker adds a unique percussion sound to the track that's a signature of his work. He also appears in the official music video. This song demonstrates how both Lavigne and Barker work seamlessly together.
