Karl Hofstetter at Joyful Noise has written a blog
about clearing the sample used from Son Lux
in Fall Out Boy
's "Fourth of July."
In my mind it still wasn't enough, but I was starting to piss off the Son Lux camp with my incessant naysaying. I heard several stories from "industry insiders" that we really put Universal through the ringer, and they were pissed... which was not my intention. I just didn't want that goddamn song to exist. In any event, we agreed to those terms, and the Fall Out Boy track was cleared for release.
