🎵Hey!
🎵That sounds like my luck
🎵I get the short end of it
🎵Oh, I love to be the underdog

I can't help but wonder if Underdog is an autobiographical account of Dan's younger years and starting out with the band?

The mentions of a father waking him up could be a reference of Dan's early years when he would wake up hours before school started to study The Bible.
The lyrics say, "Father, father, father, this is not enough. Father, father, father, who am I to blame?Father, father, father, are we just the same?"
Underdog is one of the typical themes for Imagine Dragons. It sounds incredibly happy while the lyrics are pretty deep.

Could Underdog also refer to Imagine Dragons getting their start in music? They said there were days the only food they ate in an entire day was a convenience store microwave burrito. They crashed on the couches of their fans because they couldn't afford a motel! They played in empty casinos,and they were once the opening act for a mime. Their big break was in 2009 at The Bite of Las Vegas Festival. The headline act was Train and the lead singer became suddenly ill. Imagine Dragons suddenly became the fill-in band for an audience of almost 30,000 people.

Whatever the origin of the song, it's a pretty good listen!

After winning a Grammy, an American Music Award, and love of countless firebreathers, I hope Imagine Dragons feel less like underdogs!

You still have time to join in the celebration of the fifth anniversary of Night Visions!
