You all know Sum 41. A Canadian punk-pop band that crashed the charts with their 2001 album "All Killer No Filler." In their last effort they tune down the pop-punk sound for a more hardcore/metal sound but they still were a teenage punk band. So this is their debut live cd/dvd. Released in 23 of December in Japan the "Happy Live Surprise" finally comes to the US titled "Go Chuck Yourself." The Show featured 20 tracks that every Sum 41 fan whether they are pop-punk lovers or heavy lovers will love this album. From the punk-pop blasts "Fat Lip," "The Hell Song," "Makes No Difference" to nerd-punk rockers "Anic," "Never Wake Up" and heavy metallers "Pain For Pleasure" and "We're All To Blame" this is one of the rock/pop albums to buy in 2006. Punk-pop at its best.

The rylics are the same ussual Sum 41 use. Sometimes political but defending, sometimes about everyday life problems and sometimes about just girls. "Don't count on me to let you know when don't count on me I'll do it again" Deryck sings in Fat Lip and the crowd goes crazy. You won't love Sum 41 for their rylics but for their very good punk-pop music.
Overall Impression — 10
If love "Blink 182" and "Green Day" you will like "Go Chuck Yourself" but Sum 41 are a unique band they don't need to sound like everyone because unique makes them the band they are. The best songs here are "Fat Lip," "Makes No Difference" and "Pieces." The things that most characterise Sum 41 is their unique abillity to write both poppy and metallic songs. You won't find a band combining so good pop-punk and metal tracks. This is a live album full of quality that every Sum 41 fan should buy, and only Sum 41 and pop-punk fans everyone should buyt it.
