Still Waiting (Sum 41 song)
"Still Waiting" is a song by Canadian rock band Sum 41. It was released in November 2002 as the lead single from the album Does This Look Infected?. The video, directed by Marc Klasfeld, starts with the band members entering the office of a record executive, he says the "number band thing" is "out" and changes the band's name to "The Sums" and the members' individual names. The band plays the song on a set spoofing The Hives, The Strokes, The Vines and includes various images of arcade games. At the start of the last chorus, Deryck breaks the choreography and starts trashing his equipment and Dave and Stevo do the same thing; the video ends with the four band members pushing down The Sums' name behind them. Apart from the introduction, the performance was recorded at 30 frames per second as if it was a live performance; the video contains an easter egg at 1:37, spotting a hangman game screen for a few frames, with "SU_ _1" / "SU_ 41" as text and "LAO GHQ KE9" letters of unknown meaning.

Baby You Don't Wanna Know
"Baby You Don't Wanna Know" is the second single from Sum 41's fifth studio album Screaming Bloody Murder released as a Canadian radio single on June 15, 2011, worldwide, along with a music video, on August 3, 2011. As confirmed on Sum 41's Screaming Bloody Murder making of documentary Don't Try This at Home, "Baby You Don't Wanna Know", along with "Time for You to Go", was one of the two songs that were written and recorded by the band at the last minute, on April 7, 2010, at EastWest Studios in Hollywood, California; the song, co-written by Matt Squire, was added to the album at the last minute and its recording was funded by Deryck Whibley himself, as the label refused to pay for any more songs for the album. As said by Todd Morse on Don't Try This at Home, the song's style was more in the vein of classic rock and "straight-up-rock and roll", taking influence from the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, as opposed to all the other songs that were written during 2008–2009, that resulted in a more "dark" alternative rock style.
In an interview with the band during their European tour in July 2011, the band has commented that they considered releasing either "Blood in My Eyes" or "Back Where I Belong" as the second single, but opted to release "Baby You Don't Wanna Know" instead, as it was more radio friendly. On June 28, 2011, Sum 41's Twitter has announced that the band shot a music video for "Baby You Don't Wanna Know" during a day off in Germany, to be released in the coming month. In July 2011, band assistant Matt Whibley has confirmed that the music video was shot with a local German crew and is low budget. On August 3, 2011, the band premiered the music video for the song on German website Myvideo.de. A day it premiered on VEVO and YouTube, for worldwide audiences; the band performed the song live for the first time on June 22, 2011, in Angers, during the band's summer European leg of the Screaming Bloody Murder Tour. The song was since performed at various other concerts, although being an official single, the band does not perform it on every date.
It was performed on and off until August 2011, hasn't been played again when the band resumed the tour in 2012. It is on the soundtrack of the 2011 film Green Lantern. "Baby You Don't Wanna Know" Official music video on YouTube
A music genre is a conventional category that identifies some pieces of music as belonging to a shared tradition or set of conventions. It is to be distinguished from musical form and musical style, although in practice these terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Academics have argued that categorizing music by genre is inaccurate and outdated. Music can be divided into different genres in many different ways; the artistic nature of music means that these classifications are subjective and controversial, some genres may overlap. There are varying academic definitions of the term genre itself. In his book Form in Tonal Music, Douglass M. Green distinguishes between form, he lists madrigal, canzona and dance as examples of genres from the Renaissance period. To further clarify the meaning of genre, Green writes, "Beethoven's Op. 61 and Mendelssohn's Op. 64 are identical in genre – both are violin concertos – but different in form. However, Mozart's Rondo for Piano, K. 511, the Agnus Dei from his Mass, K. 317 are quite different in genre but happen to be similar in form."
Some, like Peter van der Merwe, treat the terms genre and style as the same, saying that genre should be defined as pieces of music that share a certain style or "basic musical language." Others, such as Allan F. Moore, state that genre and style are two separate terms, that secondary characteristics such as subject matter can differentiate between genres. A music genre or subgenre may be defined by the musical techniques, the style, the cultural context, the content and spirit of the themes. Geographical origin is sometimes used to identify a music genre, though a single geographical category will include a wide variety of subgenres. Timothy Laurie argues that since the early 1980s, "genre has graduated from being a subset of popular music studies to being an ubiquitous framework for constituting and evaluating musical research objects". Among the criteria used to classify musical genres are the trichotomy of art and traditional musics. Alternatively, music can be divided on three variables: arousal and depth.
Arousal reflects the energy level of the music. These three variables help explain why many people like similar songs from different traditionally segregated genres. Musicologists have sometimes classified music according to a trichotomic distinction such as Philip Tagg's "axiomatic triangle consisting of'folk','art' and'popular' musics", he explains that each of these three is distinguishable from the others according to certain criteria. The term art music refers to classical traditions, including both contemporary and historical classical music forms. Art music exists in many parts of the world, it emphasizes formal styles that invite technical and detailed deconstruction and criticism, demand focused attention from the listener. In Western practice, art music is considered a written musical tradition, preserved in some form of music notation rather than being transmitted orally, by rote, or in recordings, as popular and traditional music are. Most western art music has been written down using the standard forms of music notation that evolved in Europe, beginning well before the Renaissance and reaching its maturity in the Romantic period.
The identity of a "work" or "piece" of art music is defined by the notated version rather than by a particular performance, is associated with the composer rather than the performer. This is so in the case of western classical music. Art music may include certain forms of jazz, though some feel that jazz is a form of popular music. Sacred Christian music forms an important part of the classical music tradition and repertoire, but can be considered to have an identity of its own; the term popular music refers to any musical style accessible to the general public and disseminated by the mass media. Musicologist and popular music specialist Philip Tagg defined the notion in the light of sociocultural and economical aspects: Popular music, unlike art music, is conceived for mass distribution to large and socioculturally heterogeneous groups of listeners and distributed in non-written form, only possible in an industrial monetary economy where it becomes a commodity and in capitalist societies, subject to the laws of'free' enterprise... it should ideally sell as much as possible.
Popular music is found on most commercial and public service radio stations, in most commercial music retailers and department stores, in movie and television soundtracks. It is noted on the Billboard charts and, in addition to singer-songwriters and composers, it involves music producers more than other genres do; the distinction between classical and popular music has sometimes been blurred in marginal areas such as minimalist music and light classics. Background music for films/movies draws on both traditions. In this respect, music is like fiction, which draws a distinction between literary fiction and popular fiction, not always precise. Country music known as country and western, hillbilly music, is a genre of popular music that originated in the southern United States in the early 1920s; the polka is a Czech dance and genre of dance music familiar throughout Europe and the Americas. Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and particular

Pieces (Sum 41 song)
"Pieces" is a song written and recorded by Canadian band Sum 41. "Pieces" was released to radio on November 16, 2004. It was released in February 2005 as the second single from Chuck; the video shows lead vocalist Deryck Whibley singing while he miserably walks throughout an abandoned community. Trucks with one clear side pass behind him, showing the other band members inside of them with signs labeling them as having "the perfect vacation", "the perfect night", "the perfect family", "the perfect body." In the end, there is a truck with Whibley sitting alone in a sparsely furnished room labelled "the perfect life". As the final chord strikes, the letter "F" from the word "life" labelled on the truck falls off, which leaves him with a sign labelled as "the perfect lie" instead. In an interview with Fuse TV, Whibley explained the letter "F" falling off of the truck's sign turned out both an ironic and unintended result, but since it fit in with their video's theme, they decided to use it anyway.
Drummer Steve Jocz stated. "The song is about a relationship, but not one with a girl. Maybe you're better left alone — fuck everybody else; the last single was a pretty serious song, but we wanted to offset it with a funny video. With this one, we don't want it to be too hokey; the trick is to make it interesting while playing up the fact that it is a sincere, genuine song."

YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, Jawed Karim, who were all early employees of PayPal. Hurley had studied design at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Chen and Karim studied computer science together at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. According to a story, repeated in the media and Chen developed the idea for YouTube during the early months of 2005, after they had experienced difficulty sharing videos, shot at a dinner party at Chen's apartment in San Francisco. Karim did not attend the party and denied that it had occurred, but Chen commented that the idea that YouTube was founded after a dinner party "was very strengthened by marketing ideas around creating a story, digestible". Karim said the inspiration for YouTube first came from Janet Jackson's role in the 2004 Super Bowl incident, when her breast was exposed during her performance, from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Karim could not find video clips of either event online, which led to the idea of a video sharing site.
Hurley and Chen said that the original idea for YouTube was a video version of an online dating service, had been influenced by the website Hot or Not. Difficulty in finding enough dating videos led to a change of plans, with the site's founders deciding to accept uploads of any type of video. YouTube began as a venture capital-funded technology startup from an $11.5 million investment by Sequoia Capital and an $8 million investment from Artis Capital Management between November 2005 and April 2006.
