Fall Out Boy’s New Song “Uma Thurman” Blends Handclaps, The ‘Munsters’ Theme & An Undeniable Chorus: Listen
Another new week, another new Fall Out Boy song ahead of the release of the rock band’s sixth LP American Beauty/American Psycho (on January 20)…and this time they’ve turned out an impossibly catchy number called “Uma Thurman.”
Given the title and its reference to the Pulp Fiction actress, you might expect there to be a bit of a ’60s surf-rock vibe to the track — and there is, only it’s the theme song to campy TV classic The Munsters being sampled here, not Chuck Berry‘s “You Never Can Tell” or Urge Overkill‘s “Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon.”
“She wants to dance like Uma Thurman, bury me until I confess / she wants to dance like Uma Thurman, and I can’t get you out of my head,” Patrick Stump wails on the song. Give it a listen below!
