Simple Plan is a French Canadian pop punk band based in Montreal, Quebec. They have released three studio albums: No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls (2002), Still Not Getting Any... (2004), and Simple Plan (2008); as well as two widely marketed live albums: Live in Japan 2002 (2003) and MTV Hard Rock Live (2005).
The origin of the band's name is obscure. Band members have given various comical responses on this point, including that the band was their simple plan to avoid getting a "real" job. However, most likely, the name is derived from the movie "A Simple Plan". The name was only intended to be temporary, but they never thought of anything better, and with shows coming up for the new band, the name stuck.
