Mad At Nothing

Album: Soul Punk (Deluxe Version) (2011)


  • This bonus track from Fall Out Boy vocalist Patrick Stump's debut solo album was inspired by Conan O'Brien on his last episode of The Tonight Show. Stump explained to Spin magazine: "[Conan O'Brien] spoke to how cynical our generation is and how unfortunate that is. That's what 'Mad at Nothing' is about. I feel very strongly that we need to be a bit positive. It's too bad that people relate to each other with sarcasm and misery - but that's what we know."

    Stump added that the Truant Wave track "Love, Selfish Love" explores the same theme.
