Songfacts®:

  • Patrick Stump told Kerrang! that he was nervous about his vocal contribution to this rock anthem: "It was a really hard song for me," he said. "I'm much more comfortable now, and very happy with the way I am compared with how I used to be, but I'm very scared of my voice. I don't like hearing it. My natural instinct is 'more guitars, more instruments, more voices,' so I have something to hide behind.

    "The song came very close to not making it on the record," he continued. "One of the old Fall Out Boy ways was that we didn't really speak up around each other. If someone was fighting for something, everyone would back off. I was kind of doing that with this song, but then we had this chain e-mail where everyone voted yay or nay. Everyone went yay except for me."
  • Stump does a little laugh after singing 'a--holes.' He told Kerrang!: "That was real! The recording you hear was probably the first take, because I was laughing about the little wink to the audience."
  • The 11 music videos from Save Rock And Roll, one for each song, tie together to create The Young Blood Chronicles. Although "Young Volcanoes" is the fourth single from the album, the action in the video takes place before the events in the previous single's ("Alone Together ") clip. Fall Out Boy has been taken by a group of Vixens to a gruesome dinner party, where they're shackled to a table, hooked up to IVs, and fed various organs and an assortment of drugs until they lose touch with reality. In the following video for "Alone Together," they're carted off to separate torture rooms.
  • Save Rock And Roll, Fall Out Boy's fifth studio album, was released five years after its predecessor, Folie à Deux. In the interim, Stump released a solo album, Soul Punk, in 2011.
