    The crazy Canadian foursome from Ajax, Ontario all used to play in rival bands when they were in high school. They decided to join forces in 1996 and formed their own band made up of Deryck Whibley (Bizzy D) on vocals and guitar, Dave Baksh (Brown Sound) also on guitar and vocals, Steve Jocz (Stevo 32) on the drums and Jason McCaslin (Cone) on the bass. The band chose the name Sum 41 cuz they formed the band 41 days into the summer before grade 12.

    Sum 41's Big Break

    Sum 41 was able to snag a record deal with Island Records in December of 1999 after Sum 41 gave the record execs an EPK (electronic press kit) jam-packed with videos of their live high-energy performances and even mischievous footage of the guys doing drive-bys with a super-soaker water pistol. Sum 41 released their first EP, Half Hour of Power in 2000 and have since landed some great gigs touring with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Blink-182, The Offspring and Social Distortion.

    A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family."
