Sum 41, "March of the Dogs" Is Only Metaphorical



Sum 41 denies being political in "March of the Dog", the song that contains explicit lyrics about US leader.

Little did people know that Sum 41's "Underclass Hero" is going to weigh a lot more than meets the eye. Even before the record arrives on shelves, the band has warned that "It is NOT a political record". The Canadian trio may have some explanation to do.

Chosen as the first single, "March of the Dogs" has no literary meaning but metaphorical content that touch the chord of US president. The lyrics speaks for itself: "Ladies and gentlemen of the underclass/The president of the United States of America is dead...And now the president's dead/Because they blew off his head/No more neck to be red/I guess to heaven he fled."

Deryck Whibley on behalf of the band made his explanation in MySpace saying, "That line is a metaphor for how Bush is so ineffectual and incompetent as a president. It's the worst way I could think of to describe how bad he is as a leader."

This song has so far invited various reactions that include the opinion that the Canadian has no right to criticize the US president. However, Deryck who acts as the sole producer of the album decided to take this bold action simply over dissatisfaction on the previous album. " this time, I decided that anytime I had a feeling, I was going to go with it," he stated. "And it shows on the album."

"March of the Dogs" is included in "Underclass Hero" that will be out July 24 via Island Records.
