Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus is doing what he can to assist those impacted by Hurricane Harvey… including dogs. He just released a new song (LISTEN BELOW) called “Not Every Dog Goes To Heaven (National Lampoon’s Vacation)” that’s part of a charity benefit to help dogs impacted by the disaster.
The album, Dog Songs, features a collection of tunes written about famous Dogs. Hopper has chosen to write about Dinky, a dog featured in the 1983 film National Lampoon’s Vacation. Other artists contributing to the project include Allie Goertz, Casey Boyd and Nerf Herder.
Proceeds from the album will be donated to the ASPCA, which is helping Texas dogs affected by Hurricane Harvey. Dog Songs is currently available as a digital download via Band Camp.
Hopper is also doing his part to assist human victims of the hurricane, using his social media presence to encourage fans to donate clothing to help Houston residents affected by hurricane-related flooding.
