New Fall Out Boy Song 'Uma Thurman' Is Best Yet From New Album
The latest "American Beauty/American Psycho" track samples "The Munsters" and references "Pulp Fiction."
Fall Out Boy's new album drops Jan. 20, but at the rate they're going, we might hear all of it by the time it's in stores. And we're not complaining! Today (Jan. 12) they released a new track called "Uma Thurman," the sixth track shared so far from the 11-song American Beauty/American Psycho.
Check it out:
Fall Out Boy is one of the few rock bands these days bold enough to use samples prominently. Here it pays off big time, as Pete Wentz and company dig into the theme song from the '60s sitcom The Munsters for a slick guitar groove and some brassy low-end thump.
Here's hoping this one gets as much attention as lead single "Centuries," which currently sits at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, its highest position yet.
And yes, that's a reference to Uma Thurman dancing in Pulp Fiction.
