Avril Lavigne and Ashlee Simpson are the pop-rock princess warriors of the aughts. Lavigne made her breakthrough in 2002 with pop-punk smashes "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" and her commercially successful debut LP "Let Go." Simpson broke out from under her sister Jessica Simpson's shadow in 2004, and dropped her first hit "Pieces of Me," which is featured on her chart-topping debut album "Autobiography." Which pop-rock singer of the '00s do you love the most?

Avril Lavigne scored a series of hits in the aughts—including "Complicated, "Sk8er Boi," "I'm with You," "Don't Tell Me," "My Happy Ending" and her chart-topping pop hit "Girlfriend." 

While her pop success kind of slowed down in the '10s, she was still making some hits. Lavigne is dropping new music in September 2018. Her single "Head Above Water" will be out on Sept. 19, according to Billboard.

Ashlee Simpson broke away from her sister Jessica Simpson. While Jessica was at the height of her success as a pop singer, actress and reality star in the early-to-mid-aughts, Ashlee became a pop-rocker. She released a string of hits—"Pieces of Me," "Shadow," "Boyfriend," "L.O.V.E." and "Invisible."

While her success continued throughout the mid-aughts, she received backlash after her infamous appearance on "Saturday Night Live" in 2004. She was caught lip-syncing when the wrong track began to play, and she did a hoedown. But regardless—she cemented herself as a pop-rocker with her own set of hits outside of her sister.

Watch the music video for "Pieces of Me" below.
