Lavigne posted a clip on TikTok captioned “20 years later…” and backed by “I’m Just a Kid” by Canadian band Simple Plan.

Simple Plan’s song, which is typically used by TikTok’ers recreating childhood photos, was part of the band’s debut album No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls, which came out only four months before Lavigne’s Let Go.

“This is amazing! Happy 20th Anniversary!” read a comment from Simple Plan.

Lavigne was in NYC to kick off a 19-city run as warm-up act on Machine Gun Kelly’s tour. She also joined MGK on stage at Madison Square Garden for their collaboration “Bois Lie.”
