Simple Plan is a French Canadian pop punk band based in Montreal, Quebec. The band has released two original albums: No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls (2002) and Still Not Getting Any... (2004); as well as two live albums: Live In Japan 2002 (2003) and MTV Hard Rock Live (2005).

Simple Plan began in 1995 with the formation of a band named Reset by high-school friends Pierre Bouvier, Charles-André (Chuck) Comeau and Adrian White. Reset toured around Canada with bands such as MxPx, Ten Foot Pole, and Face to Face, but only managed to gain modest popularity.

The debut album, No Worries, was released in 1997, and Comeau left soon after to go to college.

Two years later he met Jean-François (Jeff) Stinco and Sébastien (Seb) Lefebvre, and again started making music. In late 1999, Comeau and Bouvier reacquainted at a Sugar Ray concert and Bouvier left Reset soon after to join Comeau.

David Desrosiers replaced Bouvier in Reset, but when asked to join the foursome, he too left the band.

This allowed Bouvier, who had doubled as the band's front man and bassist, to concentrate on the singing.

The origin of the band's name is obscure. Band members have given various responses on this point, including a liking for the movie A Simple Plan; that the band was their simple plan to avoid getting a "real" job; and that the name was only intended to be temporary, but they never thought of anything better, and with shows coming up for the new band, they needed a name.
