Avril Lavigne cites British rockers The Darkness as her rock heroes - and she's desperate to work with them.

The COMPLICATED star, 19, plans to collaborate with the I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE musicians in the studio - and deems them the only band worthy of her time.

The Canadian-born singer says, "The Darkness are incredible.

"Their power is breathtaking and they are the one band in the world I now want to record with.

"I just can't stop singing their songs."
