Customer Reviews


With This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race and Carpal Tunnel of Love out, I can only imagine how great the rest of Infinity on High will be. This is some of Fall Out Boy's best work, and I'm not sure they'll be able to top their upcoming album. They have taken on a new, unique, refreshing sound that still has traces of good old Fall Out Boy...seemingly more related to Take This To Your Grave, which is possibly one of the best albums I own...and I own a lot. Kudos to Fall Out Boy for trying out a new style, as they always have, and hitting the bullseye. This song is an excellent display of what Fall Out Boy is and has become, and I can't wait for the rest to come on Feb. 6th when Infinity On High comes out. If you haven't already seen it, the music video is wonderful, especially for fans who have a lot of background knowledge on Fall Out Boy. It'll make you laugh and appreciate them even more for being able to poke fun at themselves. To older fans, this make take a little bit to get used to, but it'll grow on you and you'll probably come to love it. To new fans, this is a promising single. Although this is an excellent song, I can see where some people might be turned off by this sudden change of course. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but please, it's not right to bash and hate unfairly. An amazing song, an amazing band, and I can only imagine how amazing the upcoming album will be. Well worth $0.99.

What happened to real music?

As if FOB wasnt bad enough with "Dance Dance" and "Sugar were going down," now they have this horrible song with and even more ridiculous name. There are many great different kinds of rock bands out there, but this is just bad. The singer sounds like he's whining, none of the instrumentalists sound like they know what theyre doing, and its just a plainly boring song. Maybe if they right some real songs they will be bumped up from dumb poser band to okay weird band, IF they can actually write real songs. Im just sorry that no one knows what real rock is and everyone thinks its this.

(one of the) Best Songs Ever! [First Review]

This song is really really good i mean its great they did a great job producing the single. Speaking of which why are they releasing seperate singles when they could just release an EP with songs like Thriller, Take Over, The Brake's Over, Arms Race, Carpal Tunnel of Love and any other songs FOB would like to release to the public before the real album. That would be much easier. And we'd hear more songs from FOB who ,by far, is the greatest band ever. And anyone who disagrees should take the time to listen to the songs and lyrics and beats and you'll get into it. I used to hate Fall Out Boy, now as, I stated before, I think they are the best band ever. Overall, it's a really good song.

Fall Out Boy rose to the forefront of emo pop in the mid-2000s, selling more than four million albums thanks to the band's tabloid-grabbing bassist, able-voiced frontman, and handful of Top 40 hits. The group's four members first came together in Wilmette, a bedroom community 14 miles north of Chicago, around 2001. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joe Trohman had all taken part in various bands connected to Chicago's underground hardcore...
