Throwback Thursday ‘In Too Deep’ by Sum 41 (2001)
"Fat Lip" might be Sum 41's most memorable song, but "In Too Deep" was just as good and deserves more respect.
"In Too Deep" was the single after "Fat Lip" off of Sum 41's debut album, All Killer No Filler.
Sum 41 is a Canadian band from Ajax, Ontario. The four members at the time were Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Jason McCaslin, and Steve Jocz.
The song was written by frontman, Deryck Whibley and producer Greig Nori. Allegedly, "In Too Deep" was going to be a reggae song for Greig Nori's band with Snow being featured on some rap verses.
Somehow, Sum 41 ended up with the song and they put their spin on it!
The music video is a hilarious take on the dive competition scene from the Rodney Dangerfield movie Back to School. The music video was a mainstay on MTV's TRL.
My favorite part is Dave Baksh rising from the water to do his guitar solo! Classic!
"In Too Deep" peaked at #10 on the Billboard US Alternative Airplay chart.
The band has had a few different lineups over the years, but is still making music. In May of 2021, they released "Catching Fire" featuring Nothing, Nowhere.
