QuestionCreating a Thread Pin

Consider the following code:
public class MyThread extends Thread {
    public void run(){
        System.out.println("Testing thread.");

public class App 
    public static void main( String[] args )
        MyThread thread = new Thread();

Why does the syntax checker not accept line 5 in '' (The one with the MyThread Reference Type)? If MyThread is aThread, then why is it incorrect to create a new Thread out of it? I know I'm supposed to replace it with new MyThread, but why is Thread not allowed? Doesn't 'extend' mean 'inherits all properties etc.'?
