Whibley speaks to Billboard about making the album — and how teens are still flooding the front row of their shows two decades later.

I used to
 
sit in the car with an acoustic guitar and tape recorder. But it was freezing, because it’s Canada, and I can’t turn the car on
,
 because you can’t waste their gas. It was really difficult. I think I only had another song or two by the time we went in to do 
All Killer
 
 
You mentioned”Motivation” and”Nothing on My Back,” and there’s others like”Heart Attack,” which are relatable anthems of adolescent angst. Were you inspired by your own experiences growing up? 
 
 
Yeah, definitely. It was just coming from adolescent angst, really. For me, music’s always been somewhat autobiographical, and I just write about what I’m going through at the time or what I observe in my day-to-day life. My writing style hasn’t quite changed much from the very beginning. There’s not a lot of thought, you know, it just kind of comes out. I specifically remember writing “Heart Attack” and it all just poured out. 
 
I love”Handle This” for that reason, being so emotional
.

I
t shows off your songwriting. 
 
Oh, thanks. Stylistically, that song was totally different. 
I
t was more 
acoustic
 and it didn’t really sound like a Sum 41 song. It was actually very similar to Third Eye Blind,”How’s It Going to Be.” And we recorded in that type of way and it didn’t make any sense. Then one day, I was like, 

Let’s try to heavy this thing up a bit,

 and I picked up a guitar — I don’t write in front of people, ever. But now and then, if you’re put on the spot, sometimes you come up with something really cool. And I came up with that intro, 
daw-naw-balalaw
 
 
Speaking of Third Eye Blind, how did you feel about alternative radio at the time? 
 
 
When “Fat Lip” came out, I remember the music scene was very heavy. You had Green Day and you had blink-182, but that was kind of it in that world. There was Limp 
Bizkit
