The song is a power pop and pop punk track, which lyrically, tells a story told from the singer's viewpoint about her rocker boyfriend and a girl he knew in high school who rejected him because he was a skateboarder and she was a snob.
It also received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance at the 2003 edition.
Commercially, "Sk8er Boi" was a success, reaching the top-ten in more than ten countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States (becoming Lavigne's second top ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart) and sold over 1.8 million copies worldwide.
The video centers around an impromptu concert held by Lavigne in a Los Angeles street intersection.
It begins by showing multiple people of Lavigne's band promoting the concert in advance via graffiti, flyers, email and posters.
