Sadly Not So Great

Yesterday I said that today's post would hopefully be special, because I planned to record me and Jesse drunkenly singing Pain For Pleasure by Sum 41. We did get drunk, and I did try to record it, but it didn't record very well :( Instead I'll just give you the normal Pain For Pleasure, this song is reasonably short, made even shorter by the fourty-something second intro. But it's still good.



The music video is great, but it's not who they really are, so don't let it trick you like it tricked me. They actually look, and sound, a lot different. I think this was more of a homage to some of their favourite bands. In one song they say that "Maiden and Priest were the Gods that we praised."

In an effort to make this post still pretty great, and because that song was so short, here's a better idea of what they sound like, but not what they look like, as they use dolls with pictures of their faces attached. Though sadly they do still look very like the dolls, and like I said they have their actual pictures attached to them. This is, The Hell Song. Their song titles are typically irrelevant and quite random. They also make AMAZING ballads. I won't post it here but you should also listen to Pieces by them, it will make you cry.

  1. The first vid is pretty tolerable, but I've never really been a big Sum 41 fan, so I'll have to opt out of the second one.

    So, you gonna watch Hell in a Cell?

  2. @Shaw Eh each to their own, I think I'm yet to post a song everyone loves, but that's because even though Iron Maiden was recieved well, not everyone commented lol. I'll be watching Hell In A Cell yeah. Seems JR's gonna get to commentate, which will make it a lot better than it ever could have been. As much as I love HIAC matches though having a PPV dedicated to them kills it, and I feel the same about TLC. But that's a different rant entirely.

  7. @Linux and Life I know one or two things as well. One is that it's a lot better to use these days which is a plus, Two is that it doesn't play my games so it's a no :( But Linux does do a lot more now than it use to, and a lot more things are linux-compatible :)

    @Indistinctive Writer They aren't that old lol, also I'm having trouble getting on your blog, has something happened?

  21. "Satan is his Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame!"
    loved that song/video they did at the end of Fat Lip for it. Sum 41 might have been annoying pop punk crap, but they had their moments and they loved metal so I can't hate on them.

    Remember when they did that medley with Rob Halford and Tommy Lee for MTV's 20th anniversary party? Or that Metallica tribute medley for MTV ICON.
