    Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy talks with Screen Rant about doing the theme song for Spidey and His Amazing Friends.

    The morning of the meeting, I got an email just letting me know what the show was going to be, what it was going to be about, and what the characters were. I was kind of taking it slow, so I was still in my pajamas. I opened up my phone, I looked at this, and I got so excited. I wrote the song pretty much in 10 minutes in my head, just reading the thing, I was like, “It should sound like this!” And then I’m scrambling to put on real clothes and drive over to the studio, humming guitar parts into my voice notes at the stoplight.

    Basically, by the time I got to the meeting, I had a fully recorded song. And this is the first time they’re meeting me, this was the “get to know you” thing. I was like, “I have something,” and it ended up being one of those magic things that doesn’t happen that often. But sometimes as a creative person, every so often you have one of those things where it just is exactly right. Your first thought is exactly right. So, I played them the song that I wrote that morning, and it’s pretty much what you hear in the show now.

    It's really a shame that Patrick Stump's solo album got such a poor reaction. Seems like he really has so much potential when not having be held by the constraints of the Fall Out Boy brand. That's not a knock on the band but his musical tastes definitely extend beyond the style FOB does.

    Funny, I just went back to that recently. I love a couple songs but it's just all over the place.

    Thankfully got to catch his show in Scottsdale at a pretty small venue. Got some great shots and met him afterwards, super friendly. Would love this project to come alive again.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    That's crazy, genius stuff hahh. Totally agree about his solo work, would be cool to get something new out of it - can't believe it's been so long ago!
