Fall Out Boy Release “Uma Thurman” Video Feat. Brendon Urie, Big Sean & More

“The intent of the ‘Uma’ video is to deliver [a] fly-on-the-wall look into our life backstage & at home only on steroids,” Illinois pop-rock outfit Fall Out Boy tweeted not too long ago, describing the craziness that is their new music video for their song “Uma Thurman.” The track, which is taken from American Beauty/American Psycho, features Sarah, the fan who “won” the “Be Our Assistant For A Day” contest, as she diligently obliges to the band’s crazy requests both on and off stage.

The energetic Mel Soria and Scantron-directed music video involves all four members dragging Sarah …

Green Day To Make “Special Announcement” At Tonight’s Rock Hall Ceremony

According to Cleveland.com, Green Day are set to make a special announcement at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where they are to appear tonight.

The article states that anything from retirement to a new record announcement could come from the band this evening — let’s hope for the latter. And a tour. The band just finished a killer set at the House of Blues in Cleveland on Thursday — which featured tracks from Sweet Children, the predecessor band to Green Day.

Fall Out Boy Dominate the Paint in “Irresistible” New Music Video

Earlier this morning, pop rock juggernauts Fall Out Boy continued to hype their latest album, American Beauty/American Psycho, by releasing a new music video for their track, “Irresistible.” The lighthearted clip finds the four-piece showcasing their on-court competence with mixed results, and despite being a little cheesy at times, is actually pretty funny. Check it out after the break.

AB/AP dropped back in January, and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling nearly 220,000 units in its first week. If by some chance you’ve spent a majority of this year under a rock, you can stream …

Here’s Why It’s Okay To Think That Fall Out Boy Song Isn’t All That Great

This James Shotwell-opposing diss track began as a joke and gradually got a little heated. I was heckling him about his swooning over Fall Out Boy’s newly-released “Fourth Of July.” He gave me the title and suggested I write an anti-piece based on things I said. So here I am, probably more scathing and critical (and nonsensical) than I truly intend to be. Regardless, shots fired.

I’m not opposed to change. At all. In fact, I encourage and often embrace it. For the sake of this article, in terms of music, I’ll throw out recent examples like Pianos Become The …

Here’s Why Fall Out Boy’s “Fourth Of July” Is The First Great Song Of 2015

We’re essentially halfway into the first month of 2015 at this point, and I think it’s fair to say there have not been many game-changing singles or albums released just yet. Not that we should expect such, of course, but aside from Kanye surprising everyone while they were busy celebrating the new year not a lot of recently released music has been given much hype. Maybe it’s because everyone has been too busy getting back into the flow of work and school to pay much attention to the music being shared, or maybe – just maybe – the world has …
