17 is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne from her fifth studio album, Avril Lavigne (2013). It was written by Lavigne, J Kash and Martin Johnson and produced by Johnson, Moorman and Paddock. The song deals with nostalgia, with Lavigne reminiscing about numerous scenarios throughout her teenage years, especially probably to do with her first date back from 2001-2004 with Jesse Colburn, when he was in his early 20s. Critical reception was generally positive, with many critics considering the song to be catchy, while others feared it was not as strong as "Here's to Never Growing Up" and "Rock n Roll". "17" is currently Lavigne's biggest-selling non-single song from her album in Asia, debuting within the top-five of the South Korean Goan Chart.
