Simple Plan Welcomes Jax To WWWY Stage For “Iconic” Performance

Simple Plan brought their latest “Iconic” collaboration with Jax to the 2023 When We Were Young Fest stage. From the band’s 2022 LP Harder Than It Looks, “Iconic” was given a flashy revamp on October 13 with help from the “Victoria’s Secret” singer and TikTok star.

Check out the onstage collaboration below.

Simple Plan also played their hits “I’m Just A Kid,” “Perfect,” and, of course, “What’s New Scooby-Doo?

When the song initially came out, Jax was floored and thrilled to be part of the remaking of the iconic track.

“I was so so so excited when Simple Plan asked me to be part of Iconic! Pierre [Bouvier] brought me up to his home. We had such a fun time cutting my verse and then having dinner with his beautiful family,” she says. “I grew up listening to them and was trying my best not to fangirl. The boys are all ‘Icons’ and it is a dream come true to be on this song with them!”

Simple Plan guitarist Chuck Comeau shared, “We wanted to write a song for all these dreamers and tell them they didn’t have to give up. That they should keep going. Keep believing in their crazy dreams. Ignore the haters. Believe in themselves and their talent and use all the negative comments they hear as fuel to stay motivated and prove everyone wrong.”

More on Simple Plan:

Simple Plan have continued to be a dominant force in pop-punk as the years have flown by. In 2022, they released their sixth full-length album, Harder Than It Looks. A quintessential and emotionally vibrant collection of pop-punk perfection, it showcased exactly why they are one of the genre’s leading lights. From the powerful “Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over)” to the beautifully romantic “The Antidote,” it’s a record of immense depth and beauty.

Simple Plan also spent this summer out on the road supporting The Offspring alongside Sum 41. Creating a three-headed pop-punk beast, it was a party to end all parties every single night. From breaking records by packing 25,000 people into Chicago’s Tinley Park to vocalist Pierre Bouvier joining the band on stage alongside Deryck Whibley in New York for “Why Don’t You Get A Job?”, they made sure to have the best time of their lives in as many ways as they could.
