Fefe Dobson

From Avril Lavigne and Michelle Branch to Pink and Evanescence's Amy Lee, young female rockers are all the rage these days. The latest to join the anti-Britney ranks is 18-year-old Canadian Fefe Dobson. While she cranks up the guitars and spits out the lyrics on her punk-spiked debut, there is nothing here as original as her first name. Dobson makes like Green Day on "Stupid Little Love Song," the Red Hot Chili Peppers on "Everything" and Nirvana on "Unforgiven," a grungy diatribe against the father who abandoned her. She really embarrasses herself, though, only on "Rock It Till You Drop It," with its cheesy'80s metal riffs and cringeworthy guest rap from Tone "Wild Thing" Loc.
