Deryck: (on wife Avril Lavigne) People always think she's really angry, and she's really mad, and she really hates everyone, and doesn't care about anything, when the thing she cares about most is her fans and her music.
Deryck: Punk Rock Is Not A Crime!
Deryck: I hate McDonald's... but I'm forced to eat it.
Deryck: Preps and jocks suck, we don't wear your Abercrombie so don't listen to our punk rock!
Deryck: We usually don't go out on tour with other bands. We just like to do our own thing. We were talking about touring with Green Day and New Found Glory, but their records came out before ours - so we couldn't. Green Day would've been a band we would have liked to tour with. Beastie Boys would have been cool too.
Deryck: I have two drinks of choice and it's for different occasions. If I'm on tour I'll drink Jack because for some reason Jack Daniels doesn't hurt my voice as much. I think because it's really thick and it kind of coats my throat. My drink of choice, if I didn't have to worry about anything, is Grey Goose on the rocks.
Deryck: We don't even consider ourselves punk. We're just a rock band. We want to do something different. We want to do our own thing. That's how music has always been to us.
