Sum 41 Tickets for Sale
Sum 41 are a Canadian punk rock four-piece that formed in the late 1990s. The group gathered a local following in Ontario and were widely known for their sharp, crunchy punk-pop. They quickly signed with a major label in 1999, hit the punk touring circuit, and by 2001 had achieved maximum radio saturation with their infectious track, 'Fat Lip.'

This Canadian pop punk quartet broke through in the US charts in 2001 with their sophomore release, All Killer No Filler. Sum 41 was formed in Ajax, Ontario in 1997 by teenagers Deryck Whibley (b. 1980, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; vocals/guitar) and Steve Jocz (b. 1981, Ontario, Canada; drums). Dave Baksh (b. 1980, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; guitar) and Cone McCaslin (b. Jay McCaslin 1980, North York, Ontario, Canada; bass) were recruited to complete the line-up, with the band taking their unusual moniker from the fact that they were formed 41 days into the summer. The quartet created a stir on the local scene with their playful antics and energetic live performances, which in turn attracted the attention of several major labels looking to cash in on the commercial success of poppy hardcore bands such as Blink-182 and the Bloodhound Gang. Sum 41 signed to the independent label Aquarius in Canada, but opted for Island Records in the USA. Their 2000 debut, Half Hour Of Power, helped establish their reputation for snappy pop melodies and puerile lyrics. All Killer No Filler repeated the formula, albeit with a better production sound, and was buoyed by the success of single 'Fat Lip' on US radio.
