Sum 41

[CANADIAN IDIOTS] Back when the world was young and media actually new and the appetites of suburban tweeners enshrined as cultural ideal, you wouldn\'t have figured Sum 41 to aim for lifetime achievement honors. Honestly, given the average shelf life of pop-punk provocateurs filtered through Deryck Whibley\'s visibly calcifying smirk, you\'d have cautioned them to avoid the lease. Slouching through 2001 as designated carnal wafer for consumers more than Radio Disney but not yet a Staind woman, the Ontario combo still managed only one lone hit. For all the throwaway thrills and whippet venom of “Fat Lip”—a cartoon anthem to shake the terraces borne upon flourishes and daft momentum—adrenalized nods to harder genres does not a mission statement make. You couldn\'t call the track mature, but, relative to subsequent albums\' empty gravitas and limply operative gestures, it probably represents the group\'s fullest growth.
