You knew (and perhaps feared) it would happen. Avril Lavigne, half of Canadian rock power couple Chavril, has released a cover of Nickelback's "This Is How You Remind Me."

Lavigne, who announced her engagement with Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger earlier this summer, recorded the cover for the soundtrack of One Piece Film Z, a Japanese film.

Lavigne slows down the Nickelback power ballad, stretching out this poor listener's agony.

It's also probably no coincidence that this song was released just a few short weeks before Dec. 21st, the date some people say marks the Mayan end times.
