Simple Plan are Done with the “Opinion Overload”

With all the mixed reactions Simple Plan’s new songs have garnered over the past couple of months, it’s good to finally have a track that is very reminiscent of their early work. On Friday (Feb. 5), the Canadian band dropped another new song from their upcoming new album, Taking One for the Team. The new song is titled “Opinion Overload,” the same song the group has been teasing on social media for the past week.

Then, at midnight, they released the official music video for the track. The new music video shows the band performing in front of an audience in a packed night club. For those who have been keeping an eye on the band’s recently released music videos, it kind of looks like it could be a continuation “BOOM!” Check out the music video for “Opinion Overload” below and try not to feel like you’re at a Simple Plan show.

“Opinion Overload” is the latest single off of Taking One for the Team. The new track will join “BOOM!,” “I Don’t Wanna Be Sad,” and “I Don’t Wanna Go to Bed” on the band’s upcoming, fifth studio album.

Taking One for the Team is set to be released on Feb. 19 through Atlantic Records. For those who pre-order the album now, they will receive instant downloads of all the singles, including “Opinion Overload.” In support of the new record, the five-piece will be hitting the road this spring for the “Taking One for the Team World Tour.” The current list of stops can be seen here.


    • I’m glad that this song is a lot more like they’re going back to their pop-punk roots. I’m all for adventuring and trying new sounds, but the previously released songs were “whatever” for me.
