Some take pleasure in pain… especially if that pain is love. According to Fall Out Boy’s new track, that urge to get hurt is “Irresistible.”
The guys of FOB released the new song early Monday morning (Jan. 5). It’s a frantic twist of desperation, confidence and sadism with a chugging guitar, anthemic trombones and a shout-it-at-the-top-of-your-lungs chorus to back it up.
On Tumblr, bassist Pete Wentz explained that it reminds him of an iconic scene of destructive (and fatal) punk lovers Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen in the 1986 biopic “Sid & Nancy.”
“Irresistible” is a song off American Beauty/American Psycho
, out January 20, and follows tracks like “Centuries” and “Immortals.”
