Fall Out Boy Ft John Mayer

Beat It

Fall Out Boy Ft John Mayer

Michael Jackson’s probably rolling in his grave. Or whatever it is he sleeps in nowadays. Though he possibly also sees ‘Fall Out Boy’ more as an instruction than a noun. An awful, awfully unnecessary cash-in by the ultimate jock-masquerading-as-geek band, this only confirms their status as the poor man’s Alien Ant Farm. “But it’s just a harmless bit of fun,” you protest? Well remember: that’s what they said about Hiroshima.

Gavin Haynes
