|A Simple Plan|
|Date||May. 3rd 2006|
A Simple Plan is the 97th xkcd comic.
Simple Plan is a Canadian rock band based in Montréal. Randall is commenting on how the lyrics of Simple Plan's songs can be interpreted quite literally and out of context, to the band members themselves.
The line being quoted is from the song Welcome to My Life, a song about a teenager who lives in a dysfunctional family and has too many troubles piled on top of him, and comments on how most people do not understand how much teenagers suffer.
A Simple Plan is a misnomer - the band's name never had an "A" in front.
"This is true. The lyrics are ridiculous."
