Sum 41 have been dissed by everyone from Oasis’s Noel Gallagher, who said, “I’m just glad I lived long enough to hear the s–tiest band ever”, to Blur’s Damon Albarn, who called them a boy band with tattoos.

In fact, they think it’s an honor. “When Noel Gallagher said that, that was actually a huge compliment that he actually knew who we were,” Baksh insisted. “To get slandered from names that big is pretty cool; we’re used to local kids making fun of us. We’ve upped the ante a little bit.” Canoe.ca has since removed the article.
