Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Records New Song To Help ASPCA

Blink-182′s Mark Hoppus helps those affected by Hurricane Harvey in an adorable way. He recently recorded the song “Not Ever Dog Goes to Heaven” inspired by the class film, National Lampoon’s Vacation, for the charity album, Dog Songs. A project spearheaded by Allie Goertz and Casey Boyd, it’s an effort to raise money for the America Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to help dogs affected by Hurricane Harvey.

In a press statement, Hoppus speaks about the song saying “I wanted to write an anti-tribute to Dinky, the total bummer of a dog from Vacation, one of my favorite films of all time. Last week I went into the studio with John Feldmann and we bashed out the guitars, bass, and vocals in a morning. Travis came in that afternoon and absolutely destroyed the drums. It was all finished in a matter of 3-4 hours. In a matter of days it went from an idea in the back of my head to a song on an album out in the world. It’s a fun, energetic track that I’m proud to have included on the album, and it’s for a great cause.”

I guess this was a better choice than their other song about dogs.

Check out the new song below. You can purchase the album here and spread the hashtag #DogConceptAlbum to show your support.
