Children of the beast embrace, this majestic album turns 15 this year!
One of my first albums ever bought, and still to this day one of my favorites, Sum 41’s All Killer No Filler was the boot that kicked the band into the mainstream. With the hugely successful and fan favorite first single Fat Lip got their first taste of commercial success watching the single land at #1 on the Billboard Rock Tracks list and pushing the album to go platinum in the US, Canada, and UK.
Moving away from the ever popular singles from this record, to all of the track in between, this record is so solid from start to finish. Starting with the deep satanic voice from former drummer Steve Jocz, to the final track and last single on the record “Pain for Pleasure”, which features Jocz standing up from his drum stool for lead vocals.
Stepping away from the singles Fat Lip, In Too Deep, Motivation, and Pain for Pleasure, I would say some can’t miss tracks that everyone should listen to would be the fast paced, short, punk rock jam, “Never Wake Up” and the mellowed out track “Handle This”
Also be on the lookout for the highly anticipated Sum 41 comeback album “13 Voices” being released via Hopeless Records on October 7, 2016 and be sure to check them out on the main stage at this summer’s Vans Warped Tour!
