Despite its title, Fall Out Boy's new song "Centuries" arrives just four days after the band teased their new single via Morse code (and then confirmed it with actual words on Twitter).

Coming Soon: Fall Out Boy's New Song & Patrick Stump's First Child

As with many Fall Out Boy songs, the chorus is enormous, the guitar riffs hammer on your eardrums and Patrick Stump's vocals raise the roof. Unlike most Fall Out Boy songs, however this one samples (and interpolates) Suzanne Vega's signature hit "Tom's Diner."

Even if you don't think you know it, you've definitely heard "Tom's Diner" before. Listen to Fall Out Boy's punk-meets-hair metal take on the "doot-doot-doo-doo" hook below and pre-order it on iTunes.
