lol complaining about the likes of Fat Lip on a blink message board as if blink has never pooped out a single that bad.  I'd argue blink have a few singles worse than Fat Lip.  And I say 'worse' as someone who never has had a problem with Fat Lip.  I don't love it, but it hasn't gotten to the point where I wish it was never a single like say First Date has.

Except for the part where it didn't age well, and was never that good to begin with. .

Meh this just seems like a dumb hot take/edgy post. Sales and the pop-punk community disagree with you. Another great album from Jerry Finn.

First Date has one of the funniest videos of all time attached to it.  It gets a pass.

Sum 41 is b-grade pop punk garbage that you listen to in 6th grade to feel edgy about not doing the dishes on time.  It's a step below First Date & ATST because it tries to be edgy on top of being cheesy/polished pop punk.

A good video doesn't excuse a song, great that you have memories of the video, but the video is not the song.  I don't give a shit about the videos when I'm just listening to the song in question, when I'm working out if Fat Lip comes on, I'm listening to it, if First Date comes on, 9 times out of 10 I'm skipping it these days.

I don't think First Date was ever intended for your workouts..

Wow, you are really missing the point, not sure if you're just doing a poor trolling job or if the point that I'm making is genuinely going over your head.

Nothing yet, think we're all still trying to decipher the whole mystery behind Tom & Mark in Sun Valley Idaho at the same time.

Yes, I'm aware music videos are separate from audio tracks...I don't like First Date but I'm giving it a pass for making that memorable video.  Then you brought up working out, not sure why.  Not sure why you'd listen to any pop punk during a workout regardless if it's Sum Edgy-1 or not.

Fat Lip was fucking awesome. It came out at such a perfect time for me, when two of the biggest bands in my life were Blink and the Beastie Boys. I couldn't believe those dudes basically just mashed them up like that, I was actually kinda bummed when I listened to the rest of their album because I thought all of their songs were gonna have that Beastie Boys element haha. Still a decent pop punk album and decent band though in my mind, although I haven't listened to anything new from them since like 2004?

I play stations of my music and blink and sum 41 will pop up from time to time while I work out.  Working out was just meant to be a stand in for whatever activity I'm talking about, working out is absolutely one of them, but if I'm doing chores, if I'm just chilling in my room, etc. etc.  my point was that there are plenty of instances where I'm going to want to hear the likes of Fat Lip over First Date any day, working out being one of many such activities.  Also,  not sure why you think this music would make for bad workout music, blink can be great music to work out to in my experience.

Regardless, by your own admission here, it would seem that you agree that there are at least situations like working out where First Date would be the less desirable song to hear over Fat Lip, so on some level it would seem you at least partly agree with me.

Mike don't bother, Jan is frequently just talking shit to make himself feel big, it's not worth the effort.

Nope. This didn't change my mind.  Sum 41 still sucks ass.

Oh I hate Sum 41, but disliking something and pretending it wasn't successful are not the same, and your purposely arguing pointless crap. It's the shittiest trolling tactic.

When did I say they weren't successful? 🤔

Sum 41 did change a lot to be honest. Chuck is completely different to their previous material. Underclass Hero was them trying to sound like blink's Take Off Your Pants & Jacket album and it didn't work IMO. Screaming Bloody Murder is also different from everything they've ever done. Their recent album is different too but still kinda generic. Like Green Day after they did American Idiot & 21st Century, Sum 41 cashed in on that Chuck/Screaming Bloody Murder vibe kind of. Their recent album is samey throughout. Nearly all the songs from it sound the same to me. But they're definitely one of the more progressive pop punk bands. They matured and started writing music to suit their age. Like blink did until California.

I can understand the Offspring being boring though. They're actually a superb band. But man they need to stop writing the same fucking album. I swear I've been hearing Americana over and over again every time they release a new album.
