The current members are Deryck Whibley (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Thacker (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jason McCaslin (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Steve Jocz (drums).
In 1999, the band signed an international record deal with Island Records. The band released their debut album, All Killer No Filler in 2001. The band achieved mainstream success with their first single from the album, "Fat Lip", which reached number-one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and remains the band's most successful single to date. All Killer No Filler' was certified platinum in the United States, Canada and in the UK. The band has since released four more studio albums: Does This Look Infected? (2002), Chuck (2004) Underclass Hero (2007) and Screaming Bloody Murder (2011). The three albums before Screaming Bloody Murder have been certified platinum in Canada.
The band often performs more than 300 times each year and holds long global tours, most of which last more than a year. They have been nominated for seven Juno Awards and have won twice (Group of the Year in 2002 and Rock Album of the Year for Chuck in 2005). Their fifth studio album, Screaming Bloody Murder, was released on March 29, 2011.
All Killer No Filler is the first full studio album by the Canadian rock band Sum 41, released on May 8, 2001. The album was a commercial success and brought the band mainstream popularity, selling over 3 million copies worldwide. It was certified platinum in the United States, Canada and in the UK.
The album features lyrics with various subjects such as society, laziness, self-indulgence, and relationships. The album's title is considered to be a reference to the Jerry Lee Lewis album All Killer, No Filler: The Anthology. Top40.com ranked the album as the 9th greatest punk pop album of all time.
Sum 41's first full-length album, All Killer No Filler, was released on May 8, 2001. "Fat Lip", the album's first single, achieved significant chart and commercial success; it topped the U.S. Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart as well as many other charts around the world. The song remains the band's most successful song to date. After "Fat Lip", two more singles were released from the album: "In Too Deep" and "Motivation". "In Too Deep" peaked at #10 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, while "Motivation" peaked at #24 on the same chart. The album peaked at #13 on the Billboard 200 chart and at #9 on the Top Canadian Albums chart. While critical reception was mixed, the album was a commercial success, and was certified platinum in the United States, Canada and in the UK.
The success of the album brought the band touring offers with mainstream punk rock bands like Blink-182 and The Offspring. The band spent much of 2001 touring; they played over 300 concerts that year before returning to the studio to record another album. They took the last week of the tour off due to the September 11 terrorist attacks. They later rescheduled the canceled shows.
Does This Look Infected? is the second studio album by Sum 41. It was released on November 26, 2002 on Island Records. Even though there is relatively little profanity on the album, it is the only Sum 41 album with a parental advisory sticker on it. It was released in two versions, an explicit version and a clean version. The cover for Does This Look Infected? which features drummer Steve Jocz dressed up as a zombie, was chosen months before the title was. The album was almost delayed by the label because the band members did not have a name for it on time. Deryck suddenly thought of the name Does This Look Infected?; the whole band laughed at the idea and chose it as their album title.
The unedited version includes a bonus DVD, "Cross The T's and Gouge Your I's". The DVD has footage of Sum 41's alter ego band, Pain for Pleasure, titled "Reign In Pain", and various humorous segments like "Going Going Gonorrhea", "Campus Invasion" and "Pizza Heist and Other Crap". Also included in the DVD are the Pain for Pleasure tracks "Reign In Pain" and "WWVII Parts 1 & 2", the Autopilot Off songs "Long Way to Fall" and "Nothing Frequency", the No Warning songs "Short Fuse" and "Ill Blood" and some weblinks.
Chuck is the third studio album from Canadian rock band Sum 41. The album was released on October 12, 2004. It is the band's last album to feature lead guitarist Dave Baksh. He left the band on May 11, 2006 to pursue his own career with his new band Brown Brigade.
The album is named after a UN peacekeeper Chuck Pelletier, who was in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the band was filming a documentary for War Child Canada. Fighting broke out during the filming and Chuck helped the band evacuate from their hotel during the fighting (Chuck was staying in the same hotel during that time). The album received positive reviews from critics, and it won a Juno Award in 2005 for Best Rock Album of the Year. The album was certified gold in Japan, platinum in Canada and gold in the United States. In an online poll, "No Reason" was voted the favorite song, with "We're All to Blame" coming in second.
Underclass Hero is Sum 41's fourth studio album and the only record that was released with only three members in the band, since Dave Baksh left a year early to focus on Brown Brigade. The album was first released July 18, 2007 in Japan. It was released under the Island Records label and distributed worldwide by Universal Records, and in Canada by Aquarius Records. This album features more alternative rock songs than their previous albums. Despite mixed reviews, the album gained success on the Canadian and the United States album charts, peaking at #1 on the Canadian Albums Chart and at #7 on the U.S. Billboard 200.
In Canada, Underclass Hero debuted at #1 on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling just over 9,000 copies in its first week. In the United States, the album sold 44,601 copies in its first week and debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200, making it their highest chart positioning to date in the U.S. It has sold 183,638 copies as of March 2011, making it their lowest selling album to date.
The album spawned three singles, "Underclass Hero", "Walking Disaster", and "With Me". Another song called "March of the Dogs" had also been released as an album preview. The only single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 was "Underclass Hero" which peaked at number 86.
Screaming Bloody Murder is the fifth studio album by Canadian rock band Sum 41, released on March 29, 2011, after many delays. It was the band's second album produced by the band's frontman Deryck Whibley and recorded as a three piece, and is the first album by the band since 2007's Underclass Hero which marks the longest gap between two Sum 41 albums. Even though new lead guitarist Tom Thacker was already a part of the band and co-wrote the title track off the album, all guitars were still recorded by singer Deryck Whibley. ... (more) (less)
