Juno Award-winning Canadian rock outfit Sum 41 hit the worldwide radar in 1996 after their hometown of Ajax, Ontario, proved unable to fully contain the foursome's mixture of arena-sized riffing, hip-hop poses, and crass humor. Their breakthrough major-label debut, 2001's All Killer No Filler, featured the chart-topping MTV hit "Fat Lip" and its follow-up "In Too Deep." From there, the band's mischievous pop-punk style was steadily hardened with darker, world-weary lyrics and a heavier, metal-inspired attack. By the time their double-platinum third effort, Chuck, landed in 2004, the band's metallic tendencies were at the fore. Lineup changes and health problems sidelined the band in the 2010s, but they made a successful comeback with the well-received 13 Voices (2016) and Order in Decline (2019). In 2023, Sum 41 announced they would officially disband after touring to support their double LP Heaven and Hell.
