"Shoooogaaa we're goowiiin daaaaan" et fucking cetera: mainstream-conquering masters of all things mediocre Fall Out Boy have a new single winging its way chartwards. What's more, they've re-issued their Under The Cork Tree album this week. BUY TWICE SCHMEEMOS!
'Sugar, We're Goin' Down' breached the UK top ten like some kind of torpedo through a hull of cream crackers, annoying the absolute Christ out of daytime radio listeners and MTV-whatever viewers alike. 'Dance, Dance', released on April 17th, will almost certainly do likewise, so rabid are the band's fans for more crapola to waste their pocket money on. Speaking of fans, Fall Out Boy's MySpace page shows that they've over 750,000 'friends'. Holy eMother!
Jay-Z's a fan, apparently. Wow.
The new version of Under The Cork Tree features extra tracks, as you'd expect, and brand-new artwork. B-sides included are 'Snitches and Talkers Gets Stitches and Walkers', 'The Music Or The Misery' and 'My Heart Is The Worst Kind Of Weapon'.
For the love of rock and roll, can someone please end the existence of these fucks, today?
