"The Funeral" is the first single taken from Band of Horses’ debut album Everything All the Time, which was released on March 21, 2006. The song was released as a radio and video single in May 2006 in the US.
The story in the music video for "The Funeral" is open to interpretation. On the surface it tells the story of a man whose dog has died. The black dog may symbolise depression. Saddened by his loss, the man drowns his sorrows in alcohol. He then drives under the influence and the end of the video suggests he crashes head-on into a delivery truck. Based on the style of cars in the video and the elevated railroad, it may be set in the 1970s and possibly in Chicago, as one scene shows a sign for the Galway Bay Bar, an Irish pub located in the Lincoln Park neighbourhood.
