Lots of futily rebellious kids who watch lots of MTV and like to think they're a badass punks by listening to this so-called "punk" music, and whose only defense against those who say how shitty their precious band really is is, "Fuck you, haters! They never said they were punk!" Contrary to what a lot of posters have said, the singer HAS been quoted as referring to their music as "punk".
Also, the band members all have LAME-ASS nicknames such as Stevo 32 and Brown Sound, and are in real life major assholes (I've read on some of the shit they've said and done).
Sum 41 sounds different when they play (even more shitty than they already are).
MTV teenybopper: Wow, look at me! I just bought the new Sum 41 CD along with a new studded wrist band and eye-liner! I'm so punk!
They never claimed to be 'punk' so all you petty losers can stop your bitching.
Just because a band has an army of teeny fans doesn't detract from the fact that their music is actually...pretty damn good.
