    Definitely sounds like a b-side but I actually like it!

    this song is NOT better than "anything off Mania"

    This would have pretty easily been one of the weakest songs on Mania. That said it's a fun little song

    I like the song a lot. Reminds me of Save Rock N Roll.

    I feel like I am listening to a different song than everyone else. Fucking great song. So much better than the Champions/Centuries/Phoenix sound they’ve been at for awhile. Stuff like this and Sunshine Riptide, Hold Me Tight Or Don’t, Rat a Tat, etc. is my favorite type of FOB.

    I love the dynamics of the verses. The chorus isn’t my favorite but it’s a fun song!

    What is the point of a greatest hits album in the streaming era?

    you answered your own question - streams.

    greatest hits albums still do relatively well on CD also, compared to new releases

    Guess I’m in the minority, but I found Mania to be pretty bland. Gave the record plenty of shots, but it just wasn’t good enough to capture my attention like SR&R and AB/AP

    Not huge on super repetitive songs so just kind of meh... Production has that "Loudness Wars" vibe I'm not a huge fan of either.

    I love this

    Wyclef rules on this too

    Yeah I'm definitely over the "anthemic" FOB songs like those, I love how this one is almost like surf rockish

    To be fair my strong dislike of AB/AP is well documented on this site though

    The greatest hits album is coming out right before the holidays, you better believe their label will be pitching it for placement in big box retailer endcaps for gift ideas. We are not the key audience for the greatest hits, people looking for gifts over the holidays are. I think you'll all be surprised at how well a CD of Fall Out Boy greatest hits will sell in 2019's holiday time....

    Throw a new song/rarity/acoustic version on that bad boy and people will buy it. Also don't underestimate the Twitter stans with Patrick Stump defaults

    Honestly a greatest hit may give some of the MANIA songs a bit of a 2nd chance as well.

    Assuming a 15 song track list, do we think it looks like this? Trying to think of any one-offs I might have missed but I don't really think there are any. Unless they toss on I'll Be Waiting

    2. The Phoenix
    3. My Songs Know
    4. Alone Together
    5. Young Volcanoes
    6. Irresistible
    7. Centuries
    8. The Kids Aren't Alright
    9. Uma Thurman
    10. Immortals
    11. The Last of the Real Ones

    I know it's nothing new, but I still find it funny that Pete is the defacto frontman, and the one in all the photos/promo with Billie and Rivers

    Could maybe see them swapping out 2 of these for Save Rock and Roll and Lake Effect Kid even if they weren’t hits
