Sum 41 will parody bands like The Strokes, The Hives and other bands with 'The' in their title in the video for their new single 'Still Waiting'.

In the video the group meet a record company executive who tells them the only way to become successful is to change their name to The Sums.

Sum 41 then dress like The Hives to perform on a set like the one used by The Strokes for their 'Hard to Explain' video.

Guitarist Dave 'Brownsound' Baksch told that they did it "because all these really cool bands are coming out and we realised we're not really that cool."

He added that Sum 41 are big fans of The Hives and The Strokes.

Sum 41 release 'Still Waiting' on 18 November.
