Pain For Pleasure are Sum 41's alter-ego band. Musically, their sound was closer to hair metal bands of the 1980s than Sum 41's pop-punk. With the departure of Sum 41's lead guitarist Dave Baksh in 2006, Pain for Pleasure have effectively "disbanded".
Each member of Sum 41 had an alter-ego name for their involvement in Pain For Pleasure.
- Pleasure was Dave Baksh (Vocals & guitar)
- Pain was Steve Jocz (lead vocals)
- Sniper was Jason McCaslin (bass)
- Gunner was Deryck Whibley (drums)
Pain For Pleasure have a release on each of Sum 41's first three releases, as well as a release on a film soundtrack.
