My how time flies. It just felt like yesterday that most of us were chatting on AOL Instant Messenger, making sure we have the DVD copy of all our favorite VHS tapes, and we were rocking out to Simple Plan’s hit record No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls.

Fast forward 15 years later. AIM was put to rest. Who really buys DVD these days? And Simple Plan was on the road celebrating the 15th anniversary of their hit record in front of a passionate crowd at The Paramount on Long Island.

The band played the record from front to back, and then dazzled the crowd with an encore of some of their other greatest hits.
