"Some Say"
"No Reason"

"Some Say" is the third single and fifth track from Canadian rock band Sum 41's 2004 album, Chuck. It was released in Canada and Japan only and had an accompanying music video. "No Reason" was released instead in the US and Europe.


"Some Say" was released as single in Canada and Japan only.

While playing it live on the Go Chuck Yourself live album, band member Deryck Whibley says "this song is about your very, very, very confused parents."

Music video[edit]

The music video starts out with the band members in a car, everyone but Whibley exits, and he starts singing. The video also features reverse editing of people doing various things, such as accidentally dropping groceries, with shots of the band in between, in the end of the video soldiers rush people away from doing mundane things such as grilling steak and sitting on a couch, while the rest of the band walks back to the car Whibley is still in the car singing and they drive off.
The set used maintains some resemblance with the one used in the movie Dogville by Lars von Trier, where there aren't walls and the floor has lines that indicate the different spaces. Other than the final scene showing the band driving away, the video is shot in one continuous shot. This was the last music video until the release of "Fake My Own Death" to feature guitarist Dave Baksh.
