Sum 41 Reveal The Making Of All Killer, No Filler On Our Podcast
As the ’90s became the 2000s and the worlds of pop-punk and nu-metal collided in the public eye, Sum 41 struck a perfect sonic sweet spot. With nods to hip-hop, punk and metal, and espousing the kind of rambunctious hooligan lifestyle that properties like Jackass made their bank on, the Ajax, Ontario-based quartet channeled a unique and inspiring atmosphere on their groundbreaking debut, All Killer, No Filler. But striking that chord wasn’t always easy, and plenty of hard work, growing up, and even psychedelic drugs went into the record’s creation.
In the latest episode of Inside Track, our podcast in which the biggest names in rock tell the true stories behind moments that changed the face of music, members of Sum 41 — frontman Deryck Whibley, guitarist Dave Baksh, and bassist Jason “Cone” McCaslin — discuss how they went from a local band playing the clubs in Ajax to conquering the world with an album that helped define a generation. Along the way, they also talk about the insane pranks they pulled in the studio, their incorporation of old-school metal into their pop-punk sound, and the writing of their mega-hit single Fat Lip.
