I think they still play Simple Plan (at least the song Summer Paradise has been a lot on the radio this spring/summer) but now that I think about it I haven't heard much Good Charlotte recently. Still, both of those bands are way more popular here than Sum 41. I have never heard Sum 41 on the radio.

Oh geez, look what I've started. Okay, maybe Sum 41 is more comparable to Yellowcard, then. Yellowcard is a band that had a huge hit with Ocean Avenue, but has since then sort of dropped off. They still make really good music, and they have their own unique sound, but they just haven't been able to replicate that success they had in the early-mid 00s.

As far as radio goes... I think it depends where you live... a lot of people on this site seem to really love the radio station around my area, which is a station called 89X, and I think that station premiered Screaming Bloody Murder, or Blood In My Eyes, or maybe it was in the UH era, and they premiered one of those songs... I forget, but regardless, they still play all of the bands that have been mentioned in this thread. They're the "new rock-alternative" station. Also, I know that there's an XM radio station that I heard Jessica Kill on when I was in my car once, and I was just kind of flipping channels because I don't really listen to XM and don't know the good stations.

I think a testament to Sum 41's popularity is the fact that even on an album that had very little mainstream success, they still had a song up for a grammy or whatever it was... with Blood In My Eyes. I think that shows that they're still somewhat in the public eye, even if they are kind of an afterthought at this point. I don't think you'd be seeing bands like Simple Plan or Good Charlotte reaching that popularity currently.

Believe me, rock hasn't been played on UK radio for years. Unless you count Green Day 'leaking' all their music on Zane Lowe.

What do they play, then, regularly?
And I know I said I needed space,

but I know I can't be comfortable in my own skin.

So when I say I'm scared to be alone, you know I mean it,

I'm just not ready to leave my room.

Genuinely, this was the only song I heard on the radio for over 2 months.

You, my friend, haven't been listening to Late-night with Johnny Doom on Kerrang!

Also Carly Rae Jepsen... TUNE!

geez I kinda liked the song at first, but damn everytime I turn on the radio they're playing that song.

back on topic, the sums might not be mainstream famous but when I saw them live they had to change the venue cos Razzmatazz ( the biggest club in barcelona ) wasn't big enough, they've a huge and loyal fanbase, they don't need a frikking music video

It's catchy, fosho!

I'm not sure what stations you get where you live (do you live in/near a big city?) but I feel like I have all the stations I need. Modern rock, uh, that heavier rock music Nickelback/Three Days Grace play, country, hip-hop/clubby sort of music, soft rock... etc. I assume there's a modern rock station out there in the UK, but maybe you're just out of wave lengths' reach?

No one makes better music to me then them, but then its so easy to forget, because their impact these days is so small.

What would it take to make the world realize how talented the Sums really are again, would it be that happier music Deryck was talking about at the end of the SBM Doc perhaps?

Its the lack of videos for this album that really left me scorned as a fan cause it was so damn good.

How could you consistently have such good music, excellent writing, and everything, but then the marketing be so lax.

They really need someone who cares about that kind of stuff imo, something as simple as a creative video, a movie scored by them, anything.

They have so much potential its crazy, even the fuckin snobs at the Grammy cant hate!

I digress tho, opinions?

hh, you serious ? Why would they need talent to be popular ? Is Lil Wayne the wanna be gangster talented ? Popularity in this industry takes away your freedom, the major labels are completely taking over the music that we are forced to listen to... and the other thing, Sum 41 are not bad, but the word excellent is out of place, if you wanna use that word, you should use it when talking about Pink Floyd, The Beatles or The Who...



Thats a pretty lame statement considering how many people didnt grow up with their music. In my eyes I enjoy Sum 41's albums in a more relevant way then i do Pink Floyd's or anybodies for that matter, so to me they are "excellent". They excel in captivating my interest unlike Pink Floyd...

And even if Lil Wayne doesnt use it anymore, he would not be anywhere near as succesful today as he if he didnt have any talent.

Widen your scope and stop picking sour grapes, and you wont say such stupid narrow minded shit anymore.
