Can You Save Me?

Album: Fight Or Flight (2012)
  • This is the third single that was released from Fight or Flight, Hoobastank's fifth studio album. Fight or Flight was Hoobastank's initial release on Open E Entertainment (EMI) following a decade on Island Records. "We've been on this journey for a long time now," said singer Doug Robb. "It's like a clean slate, but not in a bad way-quite the opposite. We're no longer trying to satisfy others, not even on a subconscious level; we're comfortable in our own skin."
  • Hoobastank guitarist Dan Estrin directed the video, which acts as a behind-the-scenes documentary of the band. "I'm a music history dude and I could watch documentaries all day, that's what kind of inspired this visually," he explained to Noisecreep: "Documentaries are very valuable for helping teach peace people about music and with this new video we're teaching people a bit about our band. Even when I was a kid I loved watching music documentaries though. And today, reality TV shows are so popular that it's become a given that people want to see a little bit more about your band."
  • Hoobastank travelled to Iraq in June 2011 for the USO Road Tour, performing for the US military throughout the country. The video contains some footage from the band's trip. "That was important to include," Estrin told Noisecreep. "We had an awesome time playing for the troops. Also, originally we were going to make a slightly different video, where little facts would come up to tell people what they were seeing but then we decided enough of it looked pretty obvious people that people get a sense of what they were watching."
