Founded in 1996 in Ajax, Ontario, Sum 41 is one of the most recognisable names in punk, having broken through commercial success since 2001 with All Killer No Filler, which features anthems like “Fatlip” and “In Too Deep”. They have released sixth studio albums to date, including 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder, the single off which, “Blood In My Eye”, was nominated for a Grammy.
