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.

see also amazing. anyone who says sum 41 are shite can kiss my ass. i would like to hear what type of music these people like then all of us with TRUE music taste can slag you for liking shit like avril lavigne. she cant even sing and no way are they like blink 182 coz blink 182 have 3 folk and sum 41 have 4. unless you SAD people who hate sum 41 cant count, this is clearly a difference, and they dont even sound like each other anyway.
everybodys got their problems, everybody says the samething to you, its just a matter of how you solve them, and knowing how to change the things youve been through. i feel ive come to realise that life just cant be compromised. snap back step back and as for me i cant believe this happened to you... the hell song

A good band but wrongly labelled as punk

Sum 41 Rocks okay. All you Sum 41 haters can kiss my ass. They never said they were punk and I don't think they are. If you really liked Sum 41 you would know that they think they are rock. One of their songs even says that. They are not posers, you Sum 41 haters are the real posers. Yeah some of the Sum 41 fans are fags but if you listen to the lyrics and like their songs and not their image then you're cool and a true Sum 41 fan.
Sum 41 is the best band ever.

One of the greatest bands on earth. They once teamed up with Tenacious D and made an awesome song. "Things I Want"

I like Sum 41 because they're not like crappy Blink 182 and stupid god damn Taking Back Sunday.

Sum 41 has got their own thing going and they don't care what people think

Rock on
Sum 41 kicks your ass up and down the court.
