Fall Out Boy has just released its video for the actually-pretty-snappy “The Take Over, The Break’s Over”, and it reveals one thing: We’ve reached the point in the band’s career where it’s getting its music-video ideas from old Phil Collins clips. (Well, maybe not the “don’t make fun of us for being sellouts” part–Collins seemed pretty comfortable with that.) Can a “Billy Don’t Lose My Number” making-of-the-making-of-the-making-of navelgaze be far behind?

    You know, for all the money spent on their videos, I am glad they still have to rely on the old “peanut butter on the tongue” trick to get the dog to appear like he is talking.

    Jesus, and I thought the last video with the monkeys and Kim Kardashian was bad. I was actually just listening to Infinity High this week and wondering what the 3rd single would be, and I didn’t think for a second it would be this song (I’d much prefer “The (After) Life Of The Party” or “Hum Hallelujah”).

  3. Feh Am Legend

    Self-important and self-deprecating. Impressive.

    But I agree, that is a catchy tune.

  4. Mick Kraut

    Usually you cant go wrong with monkeys…

  5. It Must Be Take a Worm for a Walk Week

    Dog’s eye view? I guess everything is falling apart.

    Too bad they had to throw in the “We’re Not Sell-Outs!” part, otherwise this would have been just a pretty entertaining video.

    I agree, GovernmentNames, it should have been “Hum Hallelujah.” Leonard Cohen FTW.

    I couldn’t make it more than a minute in without my ears bleeding profusely.

    Fall out boy beat the shit out of a friend of mine’s brother.

    I actually think this whole album is pretty terrific. [ducks -- flying tomatoes!] And I agree that “The (After) Life Of The Party” would make a great single. I would actually describe that song as “gorgeous”. I also really like “I’m Like A Lawyer With The Way I’m Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)”
