Fall Out Boy Made A Movie That’s An Entire Album’s Worth Of Music Videos

Fall Out Boy, Courtney Love, and Elton John made 11 music videos that will restore your faith in rock ’n’ roll.

Take a trip with me, if you will, back to February 2013. The new Fall Out Boy song was out. It was called “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up).” It was good.

You liked the song so much that you went to watch its music video. But what you saw confused you.

Who are these people, you wondered. This isn’t Fall Out Boy. And why are they destroying all these instruments?

And then at the end of the video, the door to a van opened and there were four guys who appeared kidnapped. Could that be them? Was that Fall Out Boy?

SPOLER ALERT: In the end, Fall Out Boy saves rock ‘n’ roll. Also, Courtney Love becomes not evil anymore.

The film is a fun and different way to experience Fall Out Boy’s music. It is, at times, overly violent (so much fake blood), but overall, it’s a reminder that however much time you spent in 2013 listening to Save Rock And Roll, it wasn’t enough.
