Throwback Thursday: Sum 41 ‘Fat Lip’
Deryck Whibley, from Sum 41, has been in the news lately. He was recently hospitalized after having complications from drinking way too much for way too long. We’re glad to hear he’s doing better and wish him the best. In honor of his recovery, this week’s Throwback Thursday song is ‘Fat Lip.’
‘Fat Lip’ is a song by Canadian punk rock band Sum 41. It was released in April 2001 as the lead single from their 2001 album All Killer No Filler. It is the band’s most successful single to date, topping the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. It peaked at number 66 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song topped MTV’s Total Request Live and MuchMusic’s MuchMusic Countdown in the summer of 2001.
Rolling Stone magazine described the sound of the song “as if Sum 41 went from Blink-182 to Beastie Boys to Black Sabbath, all in one song.” Not too shabby.
