Young And Menace by Fall Out Boy
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, Fall Out Boy. If you know me, you know I love Fall Out Boy. I have a tattoo dedicated to them, I’ve seen them almost 10 times, and have traveled over 200 miles to experience their shows. Back on MySpace I had in my bio “FOBsessed” for a reason.
That being said, this past Friday there was an announcement of a new single, a tour, and a new album. My heart skipped a beat.
There is always something a little scary about listening to your favorite bands newest single. Will it suck? Will I like it?
Young and Menace played through my car speakers and I was intrigued. What an interesting intro. And there’s a sutble “Oops I Did It Again” Britney Spears reference too.
The chorus however, I’m not super crazy about. I would prefer to have heard more of Patrick Stump’s singing voice, and less of a distorted breakdown.
I will be honest, I have been listening regularly to this song. It isn’t my favorite, but new material is something I always binge listen to.
