Details Release Date: Sep 23, 2008; Lead Performance: Demi Lovato; Genre: Pop

The Camp Rock star Demi Lovato's debut album might be an indication that today's crop of rocker grrrls are taking their inspiration from Ashlee Simpson rather than, say, Janis
 Joplin. To be fair, Don't Forget opens with 
a pair of serviceable, guitar-driven ditties (''La La Land'' and lead single ''Get Back''), but ''On the Line'' (a song featuring the Jonas Brothers on which both parties apparently mistake vocal strain for passion) and ''Believe in Me'' (which has
 platitudes that might as well have been penned by Dora the Explorer) make Simpson's ''Pieces of Me'' sound like ''Piece of My Heart.''
