Fall Out Boy‘s forthcoming album is out very soon, but before that you can listen to another track that the band have released recently below. ‘AMERICAN BEAUTY / AMERICAN PSYCHO’ features singles such as ‘Centuries’ … as always let us know your thoughts!
Pete Wentz had a few words to say about the track:
“I do believe Marcellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take me out do whatever I wanted. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.” pulp fiction
This was a fun song to write. originally, when we came up with the idea, and there was this sample in it, which is a sample from The Munsters TV show, people kept saying “oh cool, like Quentin Tarantino, cool” when we played it. We decided why don’t we kind of create this world around that?
To me, Uma Thurman and Winona Ryder, they were these women in pop culture who were quirky, but that made me only crush on them harder. and rather than going with the traditional Uma Thurman role, we thought a lot about Kill Bill and who her character was in that, and this kind of resilience and this violence, but there’s something that’s authentic about it (like a woman taking revenge or being empowered). so that’s what the chorus of the song’s about, and the verses are what you would do to try and capture this woman’s affection.
