    Argh. It makes me mad that people like you exist
    This post confuses me. How was what he said ignorant and childish? Even if you disagree with him, his opinion is still a valid one that is completely understandable. It's not like he said "omgz sum 41 swim naked with gerbils cause dey are faggots" or something.

    I think he has a valid point, too. While I don't know a whole lot about Sum 41, I can see exactly where he's coming from. They've regressed musicially, so that's a natural conclusion to make. Not that they ever made a huge jump in terms of experimenting or whatever, but still.

    They are one of those bands that should be a lot better than they are. Actually, now that Brown Sound left, they have nothing at all. Their career went to a humongo crash and burn (more than just about any other band I've ever seen). Most bands tend to fade or go out with a band, but they just got hit by a surface to air missle and plummetted to their untimely demise.

    Wow, The Scientist and Pieces sound so similar. Crazy. But most of Chuck sounded like they stole ideas from other bands. I still really liked that album.

    I keep hearing from many Sum 41 fans that the new album sounds like American Idiot 2.

    Most of All Killer No FIller seemed to be stolen from other bands, so I'm thinking it's a continuing trend of theirs.

    I just wanted to pop in and say that one of their latest singles - whatever it's called - sounds so ridiculously like their old song "fat lip". That for a bit I honestly thought it was a self parody.

    Musical regression was the best term to use, and I really do think they are trying to re-hatch an old formula that got them popular in the first place, it's just that the world at large doesn't really care anymore. Of which I approve.

    As I've grown up some. back in the day. I even use myself as an example. reflected on things that happened in the past. I have a better understanding of things now. At least I can admit it now. I have somehow caused this situation by mentioning how I used to act on here. how I've changed. I'm a relatively normal poster now

    Yeah, that song Underclass Hero or whatever was basically a mix between 2, 3, or 4 other Sum 41 songs. The only thing they had going for them was the guitar playing, and now Dave left and they have nothing left.

    Oh, underclass hero was ripped off from an earlier b-side, I heard. Anyone else hear that?

    They "re-worked" the chorus from Subject To Change, a b-side from Chuck.

    Oh...I think it's time to dredge the old posts and bring back one of my oldie yet goodies.

    Ok, so this is what we have so far.

    Underclass Hero is Fat Lip revamed. Why do I say this?

    Notice not the similarity of lyrics, but rather the ideaology behind each song.

    Fat Lip

    I dont want to waste my time
    Become aother casualty of society.
    Ill never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down.


    Underclass Hero

    Well I won’t be caught living in a dead end job
    Afraid to a government content cause
    No sense against them
    We’re here to represent
    And stare right in the face of the establishment.

    Well because we're doing fine
    And we don't need to be told
    That we're doing fine
    Cause we won't give you control
    And we don't need anything from you
    Cause we'll be just fine
    And we won't be bought and sold
    Just like you

    Underclass Hero is a much more politically driven song than Fat Lip, however both songs pretty much deal with giving the bird to groups of people set over others: The government and adults placed in positions over children.

    Both Underclass's and Fat Lip's music videos could easily be confused by one another. Both feature the band playing amoung a crowd of rowdy adolecents, although Underclass features a fire and the fact it was filmed at "night."

    Speaking of the Devil is a blatent rip off of the Rolling Stones Sympathy for the Devil, a much better and well crafted song.

    Here is Sum 41's Speaking of lyrics

    I've seen many a face
    From young and too old
    I've stolen their faith and I have broken their souls
    Was here before Christ had forgave you your sins
    And paid your price and sealed your fate within
    Days have come to an end
    Today's the day that we meet again
    The self inflicted inebriation guilt never lies


    Now here are the Rolling Stone's lyrics

    Ive been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a mans soul and faith
    And I was round when jesus christ
    Had his moment of doubt and pain
    Made damn sure that pilate

    and later

    Just call me lucifer
    cause Im in need of some restraint
    So if you meet me
    Have some courtesy
    Have some sympathy, and some taste
    Use all your well-learned politesse
    Or Ill lay your soul to waste, um yeah

    March of the Dogs opens with a spoken bit in AM mono...or whatever it's called, and is a politically driven song. Sound familer? It should. Holiday by Green Day does the exact same thing, although it does not open with the spoken.

    Here is a line from Holiday that makes me wonder exactly where from Deryk (sp?) got his inspiration.

    Hear the dogs howling out of key
    To a hymn called "Faith and Misery" (Hey!)
    And bleed, the company lost the war today

    Plus we have Best of Me sounding like Hoobastank and Dear Father like Blink-182.


    Good job Sum 41.
    There you go.
