“Underclass Hero” is the first single from Sum 41’s fourth studio album of the same name. It was officially released on May 15, 2007. The song in its entirety was leaked on April 23 from a 91X podcast interview with Deryck Whibley. It was confirmed on Sum 41’s official site that this would be the opening track for the album. It is currently available to listen to on the band’s MySpace page. The song is also available on iTunes and other digital music suppliers as a digital single, both in Canada and The United States. Additionally, the song is featured in the EA Sports game Madden 08 and Sony’s NBA


“Underclass Hero” was written by Deryck Whibley as a theme of “us against them,” similar to their previous lyrics. Although “Underclass Hero” is written from a different angle, the song refers prominently to society and the struggle of “high-class versus the underclass” instead of “youth against adults” as in All Killer No Filler. The song also features the more classic punk-rock themes of anti-establishment. This is the theme song for MTV’s Crash My School. The song´s intro is often compared to be similar to the band´s previous single Handle This, but with certain modifications in the notes and tuning.
