|Sick Puppies singles chronology|
"All the Same" is the first single released from Sick Puppies' 2007 album Dressed Up as Life, though it was first released on their self-titled EP a year before the album. It reached #8 on the U.S. Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and featured in the Free Hugs Campaign. The radio edit cuts off the middle of the second verse and end of the third verse, whereas there are no vocals in the third verse.
The song has three music videos.
The first is the video of Juan Mann, a man in Sydney famous for initiating the Free Hugs Campaign. The video which has received over 77 million hits on YouTube to date has helped the band gain airplay in the U.S.
The third is the first video without the Free Hugs Campaign. It has a storyline about the lead singer and his love interest and the tumultuous relationship they are having. Between the girl's presumed infidelity and temper tantrums, he presumably gives up on the relationship. The band is seen performing outside buildings and it later rains with the band performing in the rain.
