This is some willy wonka ish.
this man can do no wrong.
Patrick Stump is one of our generation's greatest composers/producers of the pop punk genre. After hearing him in "The Last Hero" with XV, I began to have some doubts in his direction of music. When I heard this, I was so disappointed and shocked at the mainstream and generic sound, I immediately turned the station off. "This City" is a prime example of lazy artists writing lyrics to get a song on the radio. The chorus made me cringe due to the horrible lyrics. The music is annoying, and has virtual instruments that you cannot even identify. Luckily, Lupe Fiasco saves this song with him spitting lines. On a scale of 1-10 I give this song a 3. Makes me wonder why some of my mainstream crap isnt on the radio...

Amazing and absolutely inspirational
I've been waiting for the last 2 weeks for this to come out, I cannot believe I'm the first that gets to comment. Im a student doing a bit of college browsing right now. Ive always wanted to leave Chicago my entire life; this song makes me want to stay. I buy songs that move me. This one did. Patrick Stump is a genius. Applause to him. Rock on and move everyone. Life is easy if you believe it. Thank you, have a great night.
