I was with Joe until he called Larry the Cable Guy a piece of shit. Larry the Cable Guy is funny as hell.

Lol you're kidding, right?

That was a really enjoyable read. I always liked Joe and now I love his hatred for this song.

I always thought of the song as a throw away pop single. It's not particularly good, but it was dumb and fun enough to enjoy. It wasn't as annoying as Who Let the Dogs Out. And God dammit, I have to stop reading the comments of a Fall Out Boy article on AVclub. So much God damn snark.

Joe Trohman is well spoken. It's nice to be hearing more from the "other" guys in this band. I feel like any hate they got during their first go-around was largely in part to every one being sick of Pete Wentz. If you get to know the rest of the band more, even Pete becomes more likeable. They have an interesting dynamic.

I apparently felt very differently than Joe since last year I wrote an article defending Lou Bega's album haha -----> https://www.geekscape.net/guilty-ple...e-bit-of-mambo

I agree with his stance on being a music snob.
