Song of the Week: Fall Out Boy - I Don't Care

“I Don’t Care” was Fall Out Boy’s first single from their most recent album “Folie à Deux.” It was released in September of 2008 and was included in the ‘100 singles of 2008’ according to Rolling Stone.

Patrick Stump (Vocals/Guitar) has said the track is about the superficiality and selfishness that is associated with pop culture. It’s a political song, but not in the traditional sense.

The video for the song features guest appearances from former Guns N’ Roses member Gilby Clarke, Mark Hoppus from Blink 182, Pharrell Williams from N*E*R*D*, Gabe Saporta from Cobra Starship, Spencer Pratt and Sarah Palin.

Fall Out Boy’s bassist, Pete Wentz, posted a blog about the product placement in iTunes edited version of the video, which Fall Out Boy had not approved. Wentz said “Imagine seeing this edit only after you buy the video off of iTunes and realizing that no one even had the balls to call you and tell you they were changing the video and cutting parts.”

Wentz went on to say “this will probably end up deleted by me or someone else", by the next morning, the post was replaced with an image of Popeye and Bluto, with the word "censored" taped across their mouths.
