Singer says flight attendant noticed he was listening to his band's music
Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump has revealed that he was recently caught listening to his band’s own music in public.
The singer recently spoke to Rock Sound about his favourite songs, picking out his band’s own ‘Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet’ from 2008 album ‘Folie à Deux’ as one that’s caused him most embarrassment.
“I rarely listen to our records, because it’s a weird experience, and makes me feel like a dweeb,” Stump said.
“I was on a flight the other day, and had a moment of, ‘Oh, I’ll give this a listen, see how it’s holding up’. I don’t get recognised a lot, but there I am, playing this song for the first time in years, and the flight attendant noticed.”
Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy also recently apologised to their fans for their music being so overplayed after their single ‘Centuries’ appeared in a sports advert.
Bassist Pete Wentz said: “I watched it a little bit. It’s a little bit crazy to watch with your song in it so much. People are always like: ‘Hey it’s starting to get annoying!'”
Wentz also said the band were aware that it may be irritating viewers and fans, explaining: “We realise that it was [getting] to the point where it was getting under people’s skin. We didn’t really know that’s how it was going to be, because obviously this was the first college playoffs and stuff.”
He continued: “But, at the same time, there was a lot of people who probably wouldn’t have heard of our band who have heard it. Hopefully we didn’t annoy you too badly!”
Fall Out Boy released their latest album ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ in January.
