An awesome punk/rock band. Sum 41 is very talented and when performing live, they sound almost the exact same as they are on the album. (A lot of times, even better.). Deryck Whibley can write extremely powerful lyrics and his talent really shines in Screaming Bloody Murder, the 5th studio album that they released. Their fans are called "skumf*ks" and only the best fans can call themselves that. The band is currently made up of 4 members:
Deryck Whibley- lead singer, lead guitarist (Bizzy D)
Steve Jocz- drummer, vocals (Stevo 32)
Jason McCaslin- bassist, vocals (Cone)
Tom Thacker- guitarist, vocals (BrownTom)
*Tom Thacker replaced Dave Baksh- the original member of the band before his departure in 2006 to focus on his band Brown Brigade.
The band started out as a NOFX cover band called Kaspir with just Steve and Deryck. After that, they changed the name to Sum 41. Sum 41 was formed in 1996, 41 days into summer. (Hence the name.)
Before Dave left the band, Sum 41 had an alter ego band- Pain for Pleasure. They would dress like a 1980's heavy metal hair band by wearing leather jackets and crazy wigs. Stevo is the lead singer while Deryck plays the drums.
Sum 41 has released 5 studio albums so far.
Guy 1: Hey, did you see the Sum 41 concert last night?
Guy 2: Yeah, it was fucking awesome!
The best band of the world better than all the others band that is great for their music and not their look
I looooove Sum 41
, succsessful, great music.
some opposites of this: blink 182 (no talent)
me: sum 41 is the SHIT!!!!
gay poser bastard hater: hell no the suck cuz they look like theyre punk, blink 182 is better
me: **punches gay poser bastard hater** well i took care of that problem, maybe he wont go dissin sum 41 again.
a pop-punk band that has shown improvement. their ep and first cd sucked, but there current cd "does this look infected?" is actually good. out of all the pop-punk bands the only one i would listen to is sum 41 and maybe blink 182. i could see how people think they suck because of the other albums.
i feel kind of guilty listening to sum41 because all of their fans are fags! they're all little teeny boppers who think are a bunch of posers. thats what ruins sum 41's image. they try to come out with a good cd and all their fans are fags and it makes other people think they suck.
Sum 41 is underrated because of all their gay fans.
a band that is punk
and for everyone ho says its not punk
can kiss my ass
good charlotte rox!
