According to Oricon News, Canadian singer Avril Lavigne will sing the theme songs for One Piece Film Z, which will premier on December 15th in Japan. The titles of the songs are "How You Remind Me" and "Bad Reputation". She said, "I've felt sympathy for the world of One Piece in many aspects. I'm looking forward to seeing the completion of the movie."

One Piece Film Z official website

Her songs were chosen for the movie's world release in the future. The manga author Oda Eiichiro, who also was the general producer of the movie, was deeply impressed by "How You Remind Me" and sent a grateful letter to her.

I think bad reputation will be played in the beginning, when they are all playing on the ship. Or when they are wreacking havoc by beating up marines.

No disrespect for Lavigne and her fans, but to me, she's always been more pop than rock. I respect Nickelback, though.

All I can say is that:This gives the movie some more international hype & probably grab some people's interest in One Piece.

And don't forget to say that Oda is a fan of Avril's music (according to the article on ANN)
My Devianart

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

Oh wow, that's pretty cool. I have her first album but I sort of lost track of her after that.

Should be interesting.

This may come as a shock to you, but more than one song can be named that.

It's a cover of Nickelback's. The other other song is also a cover: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-10-18/avril-lavigne-one-piece-themes-are-nickelback-joan-jett-covers

Also, not only is Lavigne a fan of One Piece, Oda is a fan of Lavigne's music.

That she took an interest in One piece has come to a bit surprise to me, Even though I am a big fan of the manga I don't expect much of this.

Nickelback has been combined with anime ever since the first Western fans posted AMVs on Youtube. Hell, I can't even watch some fight scenes in DBZ, Bleach, or Naruto without hearing Hero or Savin Me playing in my head.

And blame Oda for liking Avril Lavigne cause we all know, fans that like shit you don't like are the worstest thing evah!

I'm not gonna blame Oda. Over there, they probably can't stand the anime songs that people here in the west love so much. Chances are they cringe when they hear 'Golden Time Lover' or 'Rolling Star'.

Well, at least Nickelback aren't actually doing a song. Avril Lavigne is marginally better even if she's still terrible.

That's kind of stupid to say considering this is the news section and there are weekly posts showing that anime songs in Japan top their billboard charts and popular songs that weren't anime inspired get used in anime too. So chances are you just don't know what the hell you are talking about.

yes because How You Remind Me isn't also a very hated song that topped the American Billboard charts-OH WAIT....actually I'm not sure if I'm actually disagreeing with you, this is vague.

there's honestly worst artists than Avril Lavigne out there at the very least. Not a big fan but...there's so much worse. Also, famous person likes anime, works for me. Not as cool as that one anime that used Franz fn Ferdinand though.


Disagreeing with me is like you saying "my opinion is wrong".
