YMMV / Sum 41

  • Broken Base: Several.
    • What is their first album, Half Hour of Power or All Killer, No Filler? The band calls the latter their debut.
    • Which is better: All Killer, No Filler, Does This Look Infected or Chuck? The argument is mostly split between the latter two.
    • Is Underclass Hero any good? Is Screaming Bloody Murder their best or worst album yet?
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Purist punk rock fans may be surprised to discover (or refuse to admit) just how legitimately angry and heavy this MTV-friendly pop-punk band's music can get.
  • Ear Worm: "Fat Lip," "In Too Deep," "Still Waiting," "Screaming Bloody Murder," "Over My Head." Also counts as Awesome Music.
  • Executive Meddling: Parodied in Still Waiting music video. At the start, their record label executive (portrayed by Will Sasso) renames the band and its individual members, stating that "number bands are out" and ""the" is in". It also parodies the executives' (supposed) lack of knowledge about music and musicians with Sasso saying, that although he has "not heard the new album, it's probably all sorts of songs about skateboarding and getting dumped" and stating band names like Green Day 75 or The Led Zeppelins.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Whatever good reputation the already controversial "Anna Nicole Is A Fucking Stupid Cunt" had died with it's subject matter.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Their cover of "How You Remind Me" became this after Avril Lavigne married Chad Kroeger following her split from Deryck.
  • Signature Song: "Fat Lip".
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • "Pain for Pleasure" sounds a lot like Iron Maiden's "Killers" and "Ride the Chariot to the Devil" is slightly similar to "The Trooper".
    • They have recently become rather notorious for this. Examples include:
      • "The Hell Song" vs "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback
      • "Hooch" vs "Boom" by P.O.D.
      • "No Reason" vs "Infest" by Papa Roach and "One Step Closer" by Linkin Park
      • "We're All to Blame" vs "Chop Suey!" by System of a Down
      • "The Bitter End" vs "Battery" by Metallica
      • "I'm Not the One" vs "A Place for My Head" by Linkin Park
      • "Pieces" vs "The Scientist" by Coldplay
      • "88" vs "One" by Metallica
      • "The Jester" vs "House of Wolves" by My Chemical Romance
      • "Pull the Curtain" vs "Shut Up" by Blink-182
      • "Confusion and Frustration in Modern Times" by Blink-182
      • "This Is Goodbye" vs "Everytime I Look for You" by Blink-182
      • "Take a Look at Yourself" vs "Man Overboard" by Blink-182 and "Welcome to the Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance
  • Tearjerker: "Pieces".
