Okay.. Hold Your Horses.. Before You Freak Out

I think that this is a good example where people will start crying "SELL OUT BOY" or something equally not so clever and to that effect. But I think this is showing that they aren't selling out. They are just doing what ever the hell they want. And this is what they wanted to do. I know some of the "die hard fans" would love it if they spit out FUCT or TTTYG again, (or would you?). But true diehards would be able to see them making music is about making music that they want to make and you guys standing behind them. Selling out would be them making music just for the public (fans included) and not for them (now do you realize where im headed..) SO if they wanted some hip hop in their music then its up to them! Not you! And also I know most of you would have a hissy fit if they didn't grow as artists. and they definatly did. (in my opinon in a good direction) Now to the song. I think the very beginning is a little unhomogenized but it comes together quickly. The lyrics aren't different. Kanye's part is funny, even though he definatly expresses that Kanye-esque arrogance (but he can pull if off) but along with funny.. it is a bit out there(he does bat them around a bit). I think they remixed a track for him.. i wanna hear that I'd give them a 4 for the song and a 4.5 for effort and a 5 for audacity.. so that averages to 4.5 so im gonna round that to 5


All of you that are saying "Fall Out Boy is alternative, not rap" don't understand Fall Out Boy's taste in music or their sense of humor. You guys obviously barely know the band. Fall Out Boy LOVES hip hop and rap. They listen to all sorts of music. Which is why Jay-Z is on their album, and why they appeared on Timbaland's album. So Kanye West doing a remix with them isn't that surprising. Also, this song makes fun of FOB, which they obviously doesn't mind. And it's in a funny way. A way that even their true fans would find funny. I mean "They just buy tight jeans til their nuts hang all out boy"? That's HILARIOUS. They have a good sense of humor, which is really good in the music industry. Besides being funny, this song really is a classic, and the new beats are interesting and refreshes an old song that got boring after awhile.

I like it

Speaking as a black FOB fan and a major Kanye supporter I think this song is perfect ! I think the collabo totally fits together and works. If you are a fan of rock and hip hop being intertwined, this song is worth the dollar. However if you like your rock and hip hop pure, steer clear of this one.

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.
