The continuation of ‘This Ain’t A Scene’ sees Pete Wentz as a bionic man and Patrick Stump as a wrestler

The new album by Fall Out Boy, titled So Much (For) Stardust, has just been released, and here is something their fans mustn’t miss. The band has dropped a highly imaginative, theatrical music video for their new single ‘Hold Me Like A Grudge’.

Those who remember Fall Out Boy’s 2007 music video ‘This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race’ will immeditely figure out the new single picks it up where the group left it off. From the first time frame, where Pete Wentz breaks his leg during a show, we are thrown to the moment twenty years later. Here we can see Wentz’ transformation into a bionic man “twice as fast as The Flash”. Vocalist Patrick Stump appears in a role of a wrestler, while Andy Hurley tries on a part of a monk.

Not that Fall Out Boy hadn’t invested a lot of effort into their previous music videos, but this one made the band proudest. Wentz even calls it “the most ambitious music video that we’ve attempted to make in the past 10 years”. Watch the video below and tell us if you agree:
