FOB And Hov In “Thriller”

Fall Out Boy’s latest record Infinity On High (aka “one of the biggest leaks” ever) opens with Cherry Coke-salesman Sean Carter firing shots at critics incredulous of the prospects of, uh, a Fall Out Boy/Jay-Z collab, apparently. Of course this isn’t the first time Hov has gone rap & roll (see: Linkin Park collab), but it does make us wonder if mall-punk is the new nü-metal. While you ponder, stream “Thriller” at the new place to create illicit song streams, YouTube.

 

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along. (We were just gonna post Jay-Z’s part, but with that “Every dot-com’s refreshing for a journal update” line, we obviously had no choice but to post ‘em all.)

Jay-Z Intro: “Yeah. What you critics said would never happen. We dedicate this album to anybody, people said couldn’t make it. To the fans that held us down ’til everyone came around. Welcome… it’s here.”

That summer we took threes across the board
But by fall we were a cover story
Now in stores
Make us poster boys in the scene
But we are not making our accepting speech
I have found the safest place to keep all our old mistakes
Every dot-com’s refreshing for a journal update

So long live the car-crash hearts
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

So long live the car-crash hearts
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

I can take your problems away
With a nod and a wave
of my hand cuz that’s just the kind of boy
That I am

Only thing I haven’t done yet is die
And it’s me and my plus one at the after life
Crowd’s are won and lost and won again
But all our heats beat
For the diehards

So long live the car-crash hearts
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

So long live the car-crash hearts
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

Long live the car-crash hearts
Long live the car-crash hearts

Long live the car-crash hearts
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

Jay-Z: “Young! F-O-B! Let’s go.”

Grab yourself a Budweiser Select and tune in to Letterman tonight to watch F-O-B bring it on late night television. No word on whether Jay-Z is set to join; the Budweiser Select you’ll be drinking is for good luck.
