The Best Damn Thing is the third album by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. It is said to be less mellow than previous Lavigne albums, and more upbeat. It is also more explicit and features for the first time profanity (Apart from the word 'shit' in My Happy Ending from Under My Skin). The album was released in America and Canada on April 17, 2007, and in Australia and in the UK on April 16. It made its radio debut on Ottawa radio station HOT 89.9 at 6:00 pm on April 14.
So far the album has two official singles, the catchy radio-friendly "Girlfriend" and the emotional power ballad "When You're gone"
