Off The Record – Magic Of The Music Video Special – All Killer No Filler, Sum 41

Last year, we launched a brand new set of articles called The Magic of The Music Video which looks at videos that have inspired me as a Video Editor. Well, I thought I would bring that article to life in more ways then one by celebrating certain albums that some of those singles have come off of. Why do this you ask? Well, you may know the songs but may of never actually listened to the albums so welcome to this section of this feature that will happen throughout the year.  In March we featured Sum 41 so today we are looking at today at the album where In Too Deep came from – All Killer No Filler


Nothing On My Back

This is a really good punk rock track, it is bold it is striking and it reels you in from the get go. This is the first song on this album and it really sets up the tempo and the style to come. It is a really catchy track and really defines the sounds of early Sum 41. It is all about the bold drum beats and the riffs that make you want to learn guitar. The lyrics are catchy and have the real punk rock vibe around them. One of the highlights of the song is the drum solo in the middle intertwined with this catchy little bass solo.


Rhythms

This song starts with this bold drum beat solo that really reels you into the track, this song follows their huge single Fat Lip so the fact that it is bold from the beginning makes it a really great track. This is another song that when you hear it you want to sing along as the lyrics are simple, bold and catchy. This song truly feels like a summer hit as it has an uplifting feel to it and makes you want to listen to outside. The drum beat acts like the rhythm in this track and pushes the track along with this really catchy baseline which could connote a heart beat.


Heart Attack

This is one of the slower songs on the track and it begins with this really lovely guitar melody that sort of feels like a memory or nostalgic feeling. The song initially feels very different to the rest of the album and then the guitar riffs start in the chorus and you realise that it fits perfectly on this album. It is a more romantic style of song to the rest of them but it is a really great track that still has the perfect amount of Punk Rock to it.
