I've liked your music ever since "I'm Just A Kid" came out. I grew up listening to your music and it's been an amazing journey. I just watched the GYHO concert last January and hearing all the songs brought back fond memories. I'm proud to say that I still have all the songs from the first album memorized. Thank you for the amazing music and here's to another 10 years! Cheers!

CONGRATS!!! I'm so proud of you guys!! You have accomplished so much over these past 10 years. It's crazy to think it's been 10 years since you released No Pads, No Helmets . . Just Balls. I still remember putting the CD into my CD player for the first time and listening to it. You all deserve the success you have gotten and I am so happy that my favorite band of all time made it this big! I've been a fan since 2002 and I knew you were a special band that would be successful. I'm glad I was able to follow you guys until this moment through vlogs, pics, blogs, and more. It's been fun and rewarding to see how far you have come. I'll be there for another 10 years or 20 or more. Hopefully it will it be many many more years because I can't imagine what life would be like without Simple Plan in it. Thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given us over these past 10 years! You guys are the best! I love you.

Guys ! Ten years already that's a pretty long time but you still rock as you did before and maybe even more ! Your fans will always be there for you no matter what. Cause you are such an amazing band ! Your music is the best ever, your songs are so deep and "human" and at the same time you can totally be crazy and i think that's a part why you rock so bad and why we love you ! I remember that Simple Plan was the first rock band i have ever listened to and yes !! I will still be there in 10 years cause i know you will and so will all your fans from all over the world. J'étais au Zénith de Paris la semaine dernière et je serai à Nantes le mois prochain ! So Let's rock together again in a month ! See ya and Happy 10 years anniversary !!!!

Happy 10 years guys! Ya'll have been my favorite bands since days 1. I even contemplated for a VERY long time getting the tat in "id do anything". Lol. I got older and settled on an "SP" tat. Almodt like sebs... Anyways, you guys have saved my life over and over again. I dont know what I would have done without you. You've been my biggest inspiration. Ive wanted to be a singer since I was about 3 and u guys just made that passion soar. Before I moved in with my bf my room was COVERED. Every inch with SP stuff.. Posters, magazine articles, concert memorabilia.. along with my booklets with pics and mag articles and concert stuff.. I still have almost all of it in my folders and boxes and stuff... Tons of stuff... I love u guys so much it kills me. I die seeing soecial stuff ya'll post or do for other countries. Damn US fans... Theres a couple of us that could compare to the Asian fans... Trust me, ive waited around for days for u guys... I got to see u on warped in salt lake, Utah in 05. Me and my dad didnt sleep the night before cuz we were traveling so far. I have so many memories from that day it wouldnt fit on the page. Not to mentiom the memories I have from warped this past summer and the show on Halloween. I keep hearing rumors that you're gonna be on warped this summer, which would be fucking awsome, but at the same time u say ur doing a US tour in 2012 so if warped IS the US tour that sucks cuz its suck a small set and not focused on u,, but I dont like too many people on warped this year so it gives me every chance to focus on u guys and get an amazing day out of it... Ive been able to be front row in the very center every show ive been to, so lets keep that up... 10 years down, another 10 to come! Every single second has been amazing! I adore each and every song. The new album is incredible. Every show is a dream. U guys make my life just a little better when it so often sucks.. U give me reason. U give me strength. Thank u for an amazing decade...

You are the five most amazing people I've ever heard of. It's amazing that after 10 years, you're still the same guys with the same incredible personalities. I met you last year for the first time and it was honestly the most amazing moment of my life. You were all so nice, so appreciative, so fun, so great.. I'm very happy you haven't turned into douchebags like a lot of people seem to do these days. I'm very proud of you for making it 10 years and hopefully another 10 years to come! I couldn't imagine what would happen if you stopped making music.. I'd probably go crazy. I've been around since the beginning and I've never felt for anything the way I feel for you and your music. Thank you so much for your music, your lyrics, your kind words, your awesome personalities, your pretty faces.. Thank you for giving me reason to keep on holding on. I can honestly say that I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. I love you ?

I'm so proud of you guys. I can't tell you guys how much I love you and how happy I am that I have you guys as my favorite band and as my heroes. 10 years is a long way, but it's just the beginning of the road. I know you guys will have a long time a head and will have much more things to accomplish yet. I will always support you, no matter what. Even if I wasn't there since day one, or since March 19th, 2002... but I've already been here for 7 years and for me it already feels like a life time and it has been the best experience I have ever had, going to your concerts and having you by my side, not physically (not yet, but someday, soon, I hope), but in your songs and in every moment I needed you, you were always there. So, thank you for being who you are and for being here for us for this long. To another 10 years of Simple Plan and so more to come! Love you xx

It's been the most amazing 10 years so far. Thank you guys so much, for discovering such a unique sound and playing such awesome music. I can't even imagine a life without Simple Plan because I listen to your songs anyday and everyday. I listen to your songs when I'm happy, sad, frustrated, lonely or even when I'm feeling like giving it all up. Your songs give me the courage and strength to rise and face any adversity. Thank you so much. Here's to another 10 years, the Simple Plan legacy will live on! I love you guys xx

I'm pretty sure NPNHJB was my first cd I bought at 12 before that i was listening to tapes :)

I had no idea it had been so long. Simple Plan has been the soundtrack to my post high school life. Each song brings back a memory of a specific time when each one was popular on the radio (or I just over played it on my iPod) I look forward to many more years any many more memories with the only band which has managed to never have a song removed from my iPod to make space for new content because there is nothing I could bare to live without! I have been a fan from the beginning and there is no doubt I will be a fan until the end. Please come back to Canada soon

Wow, I can't believe it's 10 years already! I still remember going over to my best friend's house just to listen to the album together when I was 11 or 12, (Yikes, I'm old)... Anyways, congratulations, guys! :D

You know, I've only been a fan for a year, but I feel like I've known you for 10 years! Your my favorite band and I turn you up whenever I feel down (lyric reference :D)! I love how much you love your fans and don't wanna just leave right after a show. You inspired me to learn guitar and now I'm starting a band with my friend:) I love you guys!
