Fall Out Boy Throw Down on…Kidz Bop?

In the funnest smackdown of the week, Fall Out Boy totally sticks it to pre-teen music makers Kidz Bop by putting a halt to their song “Dance, Dance” being included on Volume 10 of the wildly popular kids music CDs.

According to MTV.com, the band found out about their hit single being included on the tweeny-bopper-sung cover album via internet message postings/ emails/ and IMs. Pete Wentz (aka- Captain Harsh Face) wrote the following on FallOutBoyRock.com regarding the song inclusion: “Here’s the answer: We don’t know what’s going on, because they can use a song without your permission. However, I can’t imagine some young kids singing ‘crawling into bed with me’ and all. If they change the lyrics, I believe they need to get permission. We’re looking into it.”

As luck would have it, Wentz was correct, and if the KB folks changed song lyrics, they’d need the OK from the band. After what one would assume was a friendly call from the Fall Out Boy lawyers and/or management, “Dance, Dance” will no longer appear on Volume 10 of Kidz Bop. I’m kinda thankful that I will never hear the KB kids singing how misery loves them. However they will do a rendition of Nick Lachey‘s divorce song, “What’s Left of Me”. Just what I need, another level of depressing things to be associated with that tune.

  1. fallout boy are awesome. i love them seriously dance dance and sugar we’re going down are gr8 songs.

  2. Weel, not a huge Fall out boy fan, but, I’m proud of them for sticking it to those damn kidz. I wonder why artists like Greenday didn’t stop them from raping “Wake me up when September Ends” especially considering the song’s subject matter.

  3. Yeah I bet sugar we’re goin’ down and dance dance are your faves because you haven’t heard anything else by them.

  4. hahaha I agree with Mario…. too many people need to seriously listen to their music and not like it just because it’s the most popluar song on the radio… (although I’ll admit seeing them get high marks on music charts or being played a lot on the radio is pretty nice…. haha)
