Sum 41 open up about the making of All Killer No Filler, an album that helped define a generation

Listen to Sum 41 tell the true story behind the making of their massive debut album, All Killer No Filler.

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 Ontario-based quartet channelled 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.

On Inside Track, Kerrang!‘s podcast in which the biggest names in rock tell the true stories behind moments that changed the face of music, members of the band – 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 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.
