sum 41 is a great band with international success, almost one a 2012 grammy, has won 4 junos, multiple woodies, multiple kerrangs, their song fat lip was named 3rd catchiest song of all time, their album all killer no filler went platinum in canada, usa and the uk, their other albums were also successful, face the facts Mitchell, sum 41 is better, and if they aren't, what band is better in their genre? well, which one?

Mitchell, you are supposed to be respectful during a debate, sum 41 lost to the foo fighters' white limo, the 3rd catchiest of all time was voted by the entire world, they are very succesful, green day isn't as successful, seriously, green day is not that great a band compared to the success of sum 41. They have many awards, more than green day, don't swear in every song like green day. Sum 41 is a much better band, and we are debating sum 41, not green day, Mitchell put some effort into your last one, good luck

Green day never swears sum 41 does have you seen their album all the good sh** like that is not swearing alex and why dont you check your arguments before you read them stop saying that. I can agree sum 41 is a good band ....... not
you really think they are better than green day who have won multiple awards that are better than 4 woodies your band has won. your band is definitively better by earning those. where as green day has won multiple music awards and the now have a musical after american idiot what does your band have a bunch of woodies, great for sum 41, they are amazing .................................was talking about green day cause they won real awards

ps ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Great Luck Alex you will really need it Alot

good luck winning

Green day does swear, Jesus of suburbia, boulevard of broken dreams, American idiot, and the only reason they have a musical is because they have been around longer, their music is okay and they aren't that great socially, sum 41 is. Also, just because of the album name, doesn't mean they swear, green day has been around longer than sum 41 so of course they have more awards. Also the fact that sum 41 made it to the quarter finals of MTV MMM is better than green day making it as far as they did because sum 41 was seeded last, so they were already underdogs, than they beat arcade fire, the strokes, and cold play all internationally successful bands, but still lost to Canadian band sum 41, of Ajax, let the voting begin, ad good luck Mitchell

This debate is pretty funny, I have to say. In my opinion, I agree with Alex on that Sum 41 is an amazing band. They really are, AND they're very successful. They're actually my third favorite band (yea, I have a list). BUT do you know who my first is? Green Day :p haha. So mitman, I agree with most of what you're saying too, but whether Sum 41 sucks (which they DON'T) or not is ALL based on opinion.

I gotta say though mitman, you must not listen to Green Day's lyrics.. cause there are TONS of swearing. Haha. Their 1989 album 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours only has one swear in it (in their cover of Operation Ivy's "Knowledge"), but that's the cleanest you're gonna get from them.

In conclusion, Sum 41 is a very wonderful, popular and successful band (Just not as wonderful, popular, and successful as Green Day ;p)
