Fall Out Boy have shared a new song, “Irresistible.”
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho.
Writing via Fall Out Boy’s website, bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz explains that the song was inspired by the relationship between Sex Pistols’ Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen: “When I think of ‘Irresistible,’ it brings this image to my head, whether it’s fictional or real, of Sid and Nancy in an alley, garbage raining down on them in an eternal spiral of romance and poison,” he wrote. “Sometimes it [sic] hard not to love what can hurt us the most.”
