I think that sum 41 is better than blink-182 for many reasons, there song fat lip is the 3rd catchiest song of all time, they have 5 studio albums, a greatest hits album, have international success. They are also popular in society, because Deryck Whibley married Avril Lavigne, their success has been different for their different albums, their first was there best while their newest has had no success but is still selling, blink-182 no longer has success. Thank you

I said they didn't win grammys, and sum 41's song fat lip was voted 3rd catchiest song of all time. their album all killer no filler went platinum in canada, usa and uk, so ha. and ther song blood in my eyes was nominated for a 2012 grammy, but lost to the foo fighters' white limo. Blink-182 has been around longer, but split up, during the time sum 41 had the most success, so they had to come back to

Kyro90, they're both like Alternative Rock/Rock bands.

RFD for Arguments:

The base of the debate was really kind of on Popularity and with all of the grammies that Blink 182 has won versus the amount that Sum 41 has won. Therefore I have to vote Con.

I agree with alec314, I love Sum 41, I can't STAND Blink-182, especially Tom Delong or whatever his name is.

Reasons for voting decision: This actually really ISN'T a Vote Bomb. The first two (Which don't matter) go to lannan13 because I like Blink 182 better before and after debate. Conduct goes to Con because of some slight poor conduct by Pro where he says and I quote "their album all killer no filler went platinum in canada, usa and uk, so ha" Saying so ha is kind of misconduct. Then Spelling and Grammar obviously goes to Con, Pro's S
