People in the U.S. are hurting right now thanks to the devastation being caused by Hurricane Harvey, but Blink-182 singer Mark Hoppus is just as worried about the four-legged friends affected by the disaster, and he’s doing something to help.
Yes, his new single is actually a fundraising effort for animals suffering in the storm, somewhat sadly titled ‘Not Every Dog Goes To Heaven’. All proceeds from the single will go to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Billboard reports, and the money will be all be going specifically to dogs caught up in the aftermath.
Written and recorded together with Travis Barker and pop-punk producer John Feldmann, the track is actually taken from a compilation album named Dog Songs, bringing together songs recorded by a range of other artists. At 2:31 weighs in as one of the longer tracks to be donated – and almost a minute longer than Blink-182’s most infamous dog-related composition, ‘Fuck A Dog’.
In this case, the track is thankfully dedicated not to bestiality, but to the ill-fated ‘Dinky’ from the classic Chevy Chase flick National Lampoon’s Vacation, with other songs on the record paying tribute to other famous pooches from Beethoven and Scooby Doo to Santa’s Little Helper of The Simpsons fame.
Check it out below, along with the rest of the album, and consider picking up a copy to help out some furry friends in need.Write a Letter to the Editor
