Fourth of July

Album: American Beauty/American Psycho (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Pete Wentz' lyrics here compare a lady with the beauty of Versailles at night. When Fall Out Boy streamed the song, Wentz captioned it with "T'es la plus belle saison de ma vie" which is French for "You are the most beautiful season of my life."
  • This is a continuation of the Save Rock And Roll track "Miss Missing You."
  • This samples Son Lux's "Lost It to Trying," a track from the American trip-hop musician's 2013 album, Lanterns.
  • This got a hip-hop redo on the remix album Make America Psycho Again with the help of guest rapper OG Maco.
  • American Beauty/American Psycho, Fall Out Boy's sixth studio album, was their second consecutive #1 on the albums chart following the release of their chart-topping comeback album, Save Rock And Roll. MANIA followed suit in 2018.
