The title track of the third studio album by the Australian Rock band Airbourne is a call to arms. They told Artist Direct
: "When we started this band, the music scene had a lot of new stuff going on in the late nineties and early two-thousands. Metallica were still as big as they are. However, when we'd play shows, people would be like, 'What do you need all of those amps for?' We were like, 'What? This is rock 'n' roll.'. They played this fu--ing indie s--t or whatever-the-f--k it is. Our mindset was, 'F--k you and your indie s--t. We're going to play rock 'n' roll!' The venues started closing down because of noise pollution. We weren't going to let rock 'n' roll die though. That's what 'Black Dog Barking' is about. It's a call-to-arms. If you're with us, you're on our side. If you're not, then we're coming for you."
