  • Sum 41 Is Born

    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.

But that's like waaayyyy after the Justice League. Which comic was this because the only man in any DC continuity that has ever "killed" Superman was Doomsday. Are you sure that wasn't an Elseworld story?
