How Fall Out Boy Thinks Rock And Roll Needs To Be More Like Country Music


Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump stopped by to chat about their new single "Young And Menace" off of their seventh studio album, Mania, available for pre-order now.

When Elvis Duran asked the pair about Fall Out Boy's unique take on rock music, Pete Wentz opened up about the necessity of bending genres. 

"Genre is dead," Pete told us and expressed his dissatisfaction with the expectation that people who make rock music need to stick to traditional rules. Patrick followed up, "Country [music] is less traditional now. Country is more willing to take more chances. In rock music it's like well, 'but you don't do that.' Isn't that the least rock-and-roll thing to be like, 'those aren't the rules?!'"

Proud Dad Pete later continued that his 8-year-old son doesn't even understand music genres. It's about what you like and what you don't!

Fall Out Boy's Mania will be released September 15th and the band will set out on a 20-city tour starting in October. For more information head over to
