I will admit that I love this album. I loved their old work too. But I just have to say Underclass Hero sounds almost exactly like Fat Lip which makes me laugh. I have this album on pre-order. It is a great album if you wanted something a bit different but at the same wanted to remember what made them great. more bands should go into the studio with a f*ck you attitude.

I like this album. There are 5 solid songs I've found so far but I've only spun the record 2 or 3 times.

that was a GREAT interview. What he said in response to the "all killer, no filler" question was so true

They think they want that, but it's not necessarily what they really want. They want to be taken back to a certain period of time or feeling in their life they associate with a certain record. I can’t write the same song twice. Whatever I write is what comes out. If I try to write a song like another song from our past, I wouldn't have any ideas and couldn't finish it.

This times a million and applied to every band.

The interview was decent. Seemed like whoever interviewed him stopped him in the bathroom or something and just threw out a few questions, then when the singer was finished peeing, said "alright, thanks for the interview" and it ended there. 6 questions isn't much of an interview these days..

So would you guys say you had complete control over this album?
This whole record was done so wrong and backward in many ways. We don't care what the label thinks of it or if it gets bad reviews. We don't care if it's on the radio or not. People just trash it. At the end of the day, the only thing we care about is playing live and going on tour. Fortunately enough for us, things are bigger and better [for us] than they've ever been. Once we realized we have this fanbase—and the fact that our tours have been selling out more than ever—we kind of had the freedom to just say, "fuck you" to everybody.

Deryck is the man!

Agreed. Short but sweet. I'll take it.

I always wish interviewers would get bands to reveal exactly how many songs were recorded during album sessions...fans like me would love to know but at the same time I'm sure they don't want people to be constantly asking where the last of the 17 songs is at/when it will be released.

It's true that fans don't know what they want, they're fickle and dumb.
I'm sure most wanted Your Favorite Weapon again, but they got Deja Entendu and after a while loved it the most.
Do we really want Enema of The State again or something beyond the self-titled?

This album isn't bad and I see some new stuff added. I'm happy they're successful.

You said it!

Some good questions in there, some he's never talked about much (refering to the question about All Killer, No Filler)
I can't wait to have this album in my hands in 4 days!

it's always great when bands do their own thing without pressure from the labels. I support Deryck Whibley. Just hope this record will be successful

Deryck was more than a little cantankerous here. Ease up, homie; why be so defensive before the backlash even strikes?
