Album is what it's titled

A track listing and rating of each song, this CD is Sum41's best work, and the album is indeed all killer, and no filler.

1)Introduction to destruction- except for this one. it's an intro. 4/10

2) Nothing on My Back- sick opening guitar, great melody. 8/10

3) Never Wake up- loud guitar, random screaming for a good 50 seconds. 6/10

4) Fat Lip- arguably their best song, I think its overrated. its still a great piece of punk. 9/10

5) Rhythms- catchy hook and lyrics. 10/10

6)Motivation- Their best song, without a doubt. unparalelled guitar, and it's appeared on soundtracks for movies as well. 10/10

7)In too Deep- ok i lied. its a tie. goes from slow to fast, and it won't bother you. 10/10

8) Summer -This was also on their first album, and it really deserved to be on 2 of them. 10/10

9) Handle this- the only slow(er) song on the CD, i think it could be better faster. 6/10

10) Crazy Amanda Bunkface- Sounds too much like a bad version of Fat Lip. 6/10

11) All She's got- sick guitar solo. nuff said. 9/10

12) Heart Attack- Great wakeup song. killer killer chorus. 8/10

13) Pain For Pleasure- overrated. its a break from the style of the CD, but still good. very satanic though. 7/10

A Killer Beginning

This was a fairly popular album, and contains hits such as "Fat Lip" and "Nothing on My Back." "Fat Lip" is an absolutely vital track for any collection, and is arguably the greatest song they've ever produced. Overall, this is a much better album than "Half Hour of Power," and it shows the progression of their sound from the simpleness of their first EP. I'd rate this the third best album Sum 41 produced ("Chuck" being the first, and "Does this look infected?" being the second), but it still contains some excellent tracks. The songs, "Nothing on My Back," "Motivation," "In Too Deep," and (obviously) "Fat Lip" are great additions to your rock collection.

About Sum 41

Sum 41 hit worldwide radar in 1996 after tiny Ajax, Ontario proved unable to fully contain the foursome's mixture of punk-pop riffing, hip-hop poses, and toilet-bowl humor. Led by guitarist/vocalist Deryck Whibley, the band also included guitarist/vocalist Dave Baksh, bassist Cone McCaslin, and drummer Steve Jocz. Wooed by the boys' goofy antics and incendiary live show (and excited about the prospect of promoting their very own blink-182), Island put Sum 41 on the payroll in 1999. The Half Hour of Power EP followed, and Warped Tour dates got the word out. They returned in 2000 with the fun-filled full-length All Killer No Filler, and the singles "In Too Deep" and "Fat Lip" became staples of both modern rock radio and Total Request Live.

An extensive tour followed, and Sum 41 enjoyed their success the way all near-teenage boys would, with plenty of towel-snapping, groupie-loving, and self-deprecating, low-ball humor. In 2002, they returned to wax with Does This Look Infected? While the album was a bit harder-edged, it found the band just as jazzed as ever to mix punk-pop business with sophomoric pleasure: the video for "Hell Song" featured the fellas acting out a sort of rock star debauchery cage match with the aid of a few celebrity action figures. Metallica, Jesus Christ, and the Osbournes all made appearances in the hilarious clip.

It was not all fun and games, however, as their involvement in the charity group War Child Canada had Sum 41 lending a hand in the making of a 2004 documentary covering the effects of war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Five days into filming, fighting and gunfire suddenly erupted around them, and they barely escaped unharmed -- these events led to 2004's slightly more mature and serious effort, Chuck, named for the UN aid worker, Chuck Pelletier, who was instrumental in getting them to safety. The DVD Rocked: Sum 41 in Congo was released at the end of 2005 and the live album Go Chuck Yourself appeared the following March.

Guitarist Dave Baksh left the band during the spring of 2006 due to creative differences, going on to form the metal-punk outfit Brown Brigade. Sum 41 continued on as a trio, and their first album as such, Underclass Hero, appeared in July 2007. The band eventually returned to being a quartet, replacing Baksh with guitarist Tom Thacker, and began to work on a new album. That new album, entitled Screaming Bloody Murder, appeared in March of 2011. "Blood in My Eyes," a single from the album, was nominated for a Grammy that year. However, due to a series of back injuries for Whibley, Sum 41 would not return with new material for half a decade, despite their critical success.

During the break, Jocz left the band and was replaced by Street Drum Corps' Frank Zummo. Baksh also returned to the fold, just in time for Sum 41's comeback in 2016. The group signed with Hopeless Records and embarked on an international tour that included stops in China and a stint on that summer's Warped Tour. Their sixth LP, 13 Voices, featured the lead single "Fake My Own Death." While promoting the album, Whibley revealed that he was in an alcohol-related induced coma in 2014. While recovery included learning to walk and play guitar again, Whibley contributed a large part of his healing to the writing process of 13 Voices. To coincide with the album release, the band embarked on an international tour dubbed "Don't Call It a Sum-Back." ~ Johnny Loftus
