Biography

Ajax, Ontario, Canada (1996 – present)

Sum 41 is a Canadian band from Ajax, Ontario, Canada, active since 1996. The current members are Deryck Whibley (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jason McCaslin (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Tom Thacker (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboard). They’ve released five studio albums.

Sum 41 released their debut album, All Killer No Filler, in 2001 and achieved mainstream success through the album’s first single, “Fat Lip”, which reached number-one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart; it remains the band’s most successful single to date. They have since released four more studio albums: Does This Look Infected? (2002), Chuck (2004), Underclass Hero (2007), and Screaming Bloody Murder (2011).

The band was formed by singer-songwriter Deryck Whibley and drummer Steve Jocz, after Whibley convinced Jocz to join his band. Jocz was a drummer in another band and Whibley was convinced that “he was the best drummer around”. The duo then added Dave Baksh as lead guitarist a year later and after going through several bassists, ended up picking Jason McCaslin to complete their lineup.

On May 10, 2006, Dave Baksh announced in a statement through his management company that he was leaving Sum 41 to work with his new band, Brown Brigade, which has a more “classic metal” sound. Baksh cited “creative differences” as the reason for his departure but claimed that he was still on good terms with the band. On March 9, 2010, Steve Jocz confirmed that new lead guitarist Tom Thacker will take part in the writing and recording.

    Its more pop. Not a lot of bands that call themselves "punk" these days play actual punk. At least not in the mainstream area

    Мне тут интересно, что за поехавший по полной программе даун отметил ЭТО как Classic rock. Какой в жопу классик-рок, когда они первый студийник выпустили в новом тысячелетии?! Тогда уж какой-нибудь Psy - просто символ олдскул хип-хопа. Да дело и не только в этом. Они как панки не очень-то выглядели, а теперь еще и металлюгами захотели стать. "Мы молимся на Джюдас Прист и Айрон Мейден" - вроде из их песни? Какая разница, на кого они там "молятся", "заводят молодежь", "поднимают настроение" - меня больше заводят старые-добрые AC/DC, а если хочется отдохнуть от тяжеляка - я лучше Prodigy или Химических Братьев послушаю, и идите лесом "крутые фанаты Сам-41", вопящие о своем "крутом панк-роке" и "сраной бездушной электронщине".
