Half Hour of Power is Sum 41's debut EP. Despite it's title, there is only 24 minutes of music on it (there is 6 minutes of dead space to make the album a half hour). It was released on June 27, 2000 on Big Rig Records, a subsidiary of Island Records (US), and Aquarius Records (Canada).
On the thanks to section, the band states "This EP Is dedicated in loving memory to the band Closet Monster." The album title is a direct reference to its running time, which is 30 minutes long after the addition of dead space.
This is the first of two times that "Summer" appeared on a Sum 41 album, the second being All Killer No Filler. The band planned to put the song on each of their albums as a joke, but scrapped the plan after All Killer No Filler.
Three of the songs on the record, "What I Believe", "Another Time Around" and "Summer" were all originally featured in their first-stage demo versions on their 1998 demo tape. The cover of the album features drummer Steve Jocz in his boxer shorts holding a water gun. It bears a resemblance to the cover of the Megadeth album So Far, So Good... So What!
