Fall Out Boy Become Dollar Bin Toys in “Irresistible”


A day after hinting at a new, toy store-centric music video, Fall Out Boy has now released the clip. On Tuesday (Jan. 5), the Chicago-based band released the music video for the remixed version of “Irresistible.” The new version of the song, which originally debuted last October and features Demi Lovato, was previously given a music video that starred internet sensation, Doug the Pug. The previous video followed Doug as he parodied several of Fall Out Boy’s past music videos, but none of the members, or Lovato, were featured in it.

This time, the band members, Lovato, and several guests are the primary stars. In a letter to fans, the band reveal that the inspiration for the video came from watching *NSYNC’s “It’s Gonna Be Me.” They thought about the former boy band’s music video and discovered that there is some kind of analog in the three-minute clip. “I was looking back at the video for ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ — where they come to life as dolls – and we thought was there an analog to this story,” the letter explains. “Like somewhere in that same store was there a dollar bin full of toy that no one really wanted? That would band together like the misfit, off-brand little outsiders they were. The toys no one ever wanted come to life. Where would our band have fit in that story?”

Find out where exactly Fall Out Boy’s dollar bin toys would fit in that store below. Also keep a close eye out because you might find a couple of cameos (not including Lovato) in the clip.

“Remember in the 90’s that one boy band- the biggest of them all- *NSYNC was omnipresent. I think they could have made any throw away video and it would’ve worked because the songs were just that big. As an outsider looking in at the culture the *NSYNC videos often seemed artistic and cinematic- every thing I had loved about all those videos I had taped on VHS (years before DVR or YouTube was a thing). I was looking back at the video for “It’s Gonna Be Me” — where they come to life as dolls – and we thought was there an analog to this story? Like somewhere in that same store was there a dollar bin full of toy that no one really wanted? That would band together like the misfit, off-brand little outsiders they were. The toys no one ever wanted come to life. Where would our band have fit in that story? We called up Wayne Isham, the director who did the original video (as well as some of our other favorite Mötley Crüe and Metallica videos), and pitched ideas back and forth… before long we came with the treatment – and were lucky enough to get a few cameos from the original source wink emoticon as well as our partner in crime on the song, Demi Lovato. 

I know you don’t have a VHS tape (probably, though there is something about all the screenshots and memes made from our videos that feels pretty close to a modern version of that VHS tape wink emoticon) to record this. But, I hope this video hits you in the same way – that you know we wanted to create something special for everyone that has ever loved an off-brand dollar bin toy, or has felt like one… 

Believe it or not, we still believe in the magic of making these things – thank you for being a part of that with us.”

“Irresistible” is featured on Fall Out Boy’s 2014 release, American Beauty/ American Psycho. Late last year, they released a remixed version of the album featuring several rappers titled Make American Psycho Again. Instead of taking a break after their hectic 2014, the band will be hitting the road, once again, for their “Wintour” which will begin in late February. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

Listen to Fall Out Boy’s “The Kids Aren’t Alright” Remix

Fall Out Boy is back with another new song from their remix album, Make America Psycho Again. On Friday (Oct. 23), the Chicago-based band revealed they had recorded a new version of their recently released album, American Beauty/American Psycho. Instead of them being the sole artists on the songs, they revealed they enlisted rappers that they like to contribute.

With the announcement, they unveiled the first song off of the album; “Irresistible” featuring Atlanta trio, Migos. On Tuesday, the released a set of songs off the record. Taking to Zane Lowe’s Beats radio station, the band released “The Kids Aren’t Alright” featuring controversial rapper Azealia Banks as well as “Twin Skeleton’s (Hotel In NYC)” featuring Joey Bada$$.

Check out the remixed version of “The Kids Aren’t Alright” below.

Make American Psycho Again is scheduled to be released this Friday, Oct. 30 through DCD2/Island Records.

Fall Out Boy Announce ‘Make America Psycho Again’

What are you to do when you are about to embark on a brand new tour in a couple of months which will celebrate the one year anniversary of your recently released album? Simple, have the record remixed, and that’s exactly what Fall Out Boy is doing with American Beauty/American Psycho.

On Friday (Oct. 23), the Chicago band announced they would be releasing a remixed version of their latest album featuring some of their “favorite rappers.” “Got some of our favorite rappers to#MakeAmericaPsychoAgain new AB/AP remix album coming out 10/30,” the band wrote on Twitter.

The remixed record will feature all 11 tracks being remixed by various rappers including A$AP Ferg,  Juicy J, and former tourmate Wiz Khalifa. In addition to the announcement the band also released the first remixed song off of the record; “Irresistible.” Just last week, they released another redone version of the song featuring pop star Demi Lovato. This newer version finds the tempo of the song completely slowed down and Migos laying down some tracks. Listen to the song below and check out the track list for the album below.


1. “Irresistible” (feat. Migos)
2. “American Beauty/American Psycho” (feat. A$AP Ferg)
3. “Centuries” (feat. Juicy J)
4. “The Kids Aren’t Alright” (feat. Azealia Banks)
5. “Uma Thurman” (feat. Wiz Khalifa)
6. “Jet Pack Blues” (feat. Big K.R.I.T.)
7. “Novocaine” (feat. UZI)
8. “Fourth of July” (feat. OG Maco)
9. “Favorite Record” (feat. I LOVE MAKONNEN)
10. “Immortals” (feat. Black Thought)
11. “Twin Skeleton’s (Hotel In NYC)” (feat. Joey Bada$$)

This remixed album isn’t the first time Fall Out Boy has worked with rappers for their songs. For 2007’s Infinity on High, they got Jay-Z to do a spoken-word intro to “Thriller” and for 2013’s Save Rock and Roll, Big Sean was asked to come in and contribute to “The Mighty Fall.”

Make American Psycho Again will officially be released next Friday, Oct. 30, through DCD2/Island Record. Pre-orders are currently available on all digital media platforms.

Fall Out Boy Give Personal Assistant Time of Their Life in “Uma Thurman”

Fall Out Boy have dropped the music video for their ultra catchy song “Uma Thurman.” But if you’re expecting to see people dancing like Thurman’s character in Pulp Fiction you might be a little disappointed.That aside, the music video is kind of awesome and fun.

The video beings with some contest winner named Sarah getting the chance to become the Chicago band’s personal assistant for 24 hours.

Doesn’t that sound like fun?

Sarah’s day begins with being told to go over to Joe’s house to walk his pet zebras. Yes, Joe (at least in the video) has pet zebras. After that, things get crazy with the band members constantly sending text messages to her to do things like go paintballing, get coffee for Joe, meeting Patrick at a bar for karaoke (in the morning), taking pictures of Pete as he rode a mechanical bull, meeting Andy at the gym for one heck of a workout and much more.

Not going to lie, we would be FOB’s personal assistant if they would pay for our gas. Or we could always take Joe’s car.

Also, keep an eye out for all the special cameos the band got for the video including Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie who was present when Pete asked for an extra player for paintball.

“Uma Thurman” is featured on Fall Out Boy’s recently released album American Beauty/American Psycho. In June, they will be hitting the road for their “Boys of Zummer” tour with Wiz Khalifa and Hoodie Allen.

Wiz Khalifa Gives Fall Out Boy Track the “Boys of Zummer” Treatment

With Fall Out Boy announcing plans to head out on tour with Wiz Khalifa (and Hoodie Allen) later on this Summer, the band and the rapper have teamed up to remix one of their newly released songs from American Beauty/American Psycho.

The song, the weird but makes you want to get up and dance, “Uma Thurman,” got the “Boys of Zummer” treatment by Khalifa including some EDM beats and, of course, rapping.

Check out the remixed version of the song below.

The “Boys of Zummer” tour will kick off on June 10 in Camden, NJ at the Susquehanna Bank Center and wrap up on Aug. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood.

Fall Out Boy Dropping New Album, One Track at a Time

While most of us are nursing an All Time Low hangover, Fall Out Boy are trying to be a sneaky bunch by giving their fans the chance to listen to their new album ahead of schedule.

This morning, the band posted that they will be giving their fans the chance to listen to the American Beauty/American Psycho a week in advance with one catch; they won’t release all the tracks at the same time.

Instead, they’ve turned it into a game of releasing a new track at the most random times of the day. As of now, we’re pretty sure they have released the vast majority if not the full album already.

“Centuries,” “American Beauty/American Psycho,” “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” “Irresistible,” and “Uma Thurman” were previously released and now we have added many more to our ever-expanding list below.

We also assume a couple of more will be released throughout the rest of the day.

Check out the newest additions to the American Beauty/American Psycho playlist which also includes a cover of Bruno Mars’ latest hit, “Uptown Funk.”

Fall Out Boy Dance Like “Uma Thurman” with New Song

After revealing that two singles would be released in January (the first of two was last week’s “Irresistible”) in support of their upcoming new album, Fall Out Boy have dropped their second new single of 2015.

The new song is titled “Uma Thurman” and plays a weird tribute to the actress including a line which seems to be a direct reference to her iconic Pulp Fiction character, Mia Wallace (“she wants to dance like Uma Thurman”).

There’s also that sampling of The Munsters‘ theme song which the guys pretty much prepared fans for last week after they posted about it online.

Hey, whatever floats their boat at this point, right?

“Uma Thurman” joins “Centuries,” “American Beauty/American Psycho,” “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” and “Irresistible” on the tracklist for American Beauty/American Psycho due out next Tuesday, Jan. 20 through Isalnd/ DCD2 Records.

Pre-orders for the album are still ongoing and comes with instant downloads of all the five of the singles.

Fall Out Boy Prove They’re “Irresistible” on New Single


It’s as if Fall Out Boy have decided that Mondays would be the best time to release new music or give us some sort of announcement and we can understand because Mondays are the most dreaded day of the week so why not give fans a little bit of goodness.

Today, the band released a new single titled “Irresistible.” Now for those who don’t remember, the Chicago-based band revealed on Twitter over the holidays that two new singles would be streamed before their new album, American Beauty/ American Psycho drops.

Listen to the first of two tracks below.

“Irresistible” joins previously released singles “Centuries,” “American Beauty/ American Psycho,” and “The Kids Aren’t Alright.”

Pre-orders bundles for American Beauty/ American Psycho are currently available online, but if you’d rather have a digital version of the record, pre-orders for that version can be purchased over at iTunes. The album will official hit shelves on Jan. 20 through Island Records.

New Fall Out Boy Singles to Debut in January

As we continue our Fall Out Boy watch 2014 clear into the new year, the band have already announced they will be releasing two new single in early 2015.

In a post they uploaded onto Twitter a few days ago, they confirmed the first of the two new singles will be dropped on Jan. 5 while the second one is set to be released on Jan. 12. As of now, no titles for the two tracks have been revealed.

All this is part of their marketing strategy for the release of their new album, American Beauty/American Psycho due out on Jan. 20. As of now, they have released three songs from the album which includes, lead single “Centuries,” “American Beauty/ American Psycho,” “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” and “Immortals” which according to the band will not be the same version they recorded for Disney’s Big Hero 6.

As well as the announcement of the new songs, the band also teased that some big announcement will be “coming soon.”

If we were beating people, we would put our money on them announcing a new tour, but we’re not, so we won’t.

The new year is already shaping to be a full one for Fall Out Boy. Frontman Patrick Stump is currently in the middle of playing judge on NBC’s a cappella competition show, The Sing Off and this coming Wednesday, they will be performing several songs on Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution.

Fall Out Boy Give Us An “American Beauty/ American Psycho”

Just a few hours ago, Fall Out Boy released another new song from their upcoming new album, American Beauty/American Psycho. As if a new song wasn’t enough from the Chicago boys, they went ahead and revealed that they would be releasing the official music video for the title track of the album.

Now, as promised, they have unveiled the video which features some thugs getting their asses handed to them, a kid with an American flag painted on his face (alla Green Day’s American Idiot) and a ballerina that literally kicks ass.

Let’s just say, it’s nothing like “Centuries” and if you are expecting to see the guys in the video, you won’t until the end and for only one mini scene.

Check out the music video below.

American Beauty/ American Psycho will be released on Jan. 20 through Island/ DCD2. The full track list and album art for the album were also unveiled earlier in the day. That can be seen here as well.
