"Perfect" is the fourth and final single taken from Simple Plan's debut album "No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls". The song deals with the pressures of trying to be the perfect child simply for the sake of making your parents proud but then deciding that it is not worth it. It also talks about being made to feel inadequate because you do what makes you happy. Both the song and the video contrast the difficulties of meeting parental expectations and self-determination.

The song is featured on the game "Karaoke Revolution Volume 2", and also on the original Disney Channel movie, "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" with Lindsay Lohan.
