It Turns Out Pete Wentz Has Never Talked To Bruno Mars About That Iconic 2008 Photo
“Threw up in the cab into a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.”
The guys discuss a potential “A Little Less Sixteen Candles” sequel, that iconic Bruno Mars photo, their early-2000s fashion regrets, and more.
It's been 14 years since Take This to Your Grave had a residency in our car's CD player while we all screamed "WHERE IS YOUR BOY TOOOONIGHT" at the top of our lungs. And while we've all grown up, and moved past some questionable fashion choices (RIP side-swept emo bangs), one thing has remained the same: Fall Out Boy's ability to blow our damn minds with music.
Now they're back at it again with an upcoming fall tour and their seventh studio album, M A N I A, out Sept. 15. So we had Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump stop by BuzzFeed NY to answer everything you've been dying to know, while playing with some hella cute rescue puppies. Because what is truly better than Pete + Patrick + pups?

You guys have had a lot of changes in music style throughout your careers. What prompted your new sound in M A N I A, and will the rest of the album be the same style as "Young and Menace"?
Pete Wentz: I feel like "Young and Menace" was inspired by 1990s modem connecting sounds. I don't know if that's actually true — Patrick did not think that was true. Maybe you should answer this question.
Patrick Stump: I'm trying to form a thought while there's puppies. So yeah, I don't know if there is a new sound. It's just every song's gonna be a different thing.
PW: I don't think — the record is not gonna sound like "Young and Menace."
PS: No. And that's the thing, it's not a style. For a long time, I don't think we've been very easy to— you know, if we wrote a song that sounded too specifically like a style, we don't really use it. So, yeah. I think I answered it. I got lost in puppy.
Would you ever consider releasing a Christmas or holiday album?
PS: That would be amazing. What do you think?
PW: I think it would be great. It's just really agreeing on the songs or creating cool original songs. We have one Christmas-ish, holiday-ish-type song, but it was recorded a long time ago.
