In the early 2000s, Fall Out Boy hit it big with songs like “Sugar We’re Going Down”, “Dance Dance” and “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race.” After taking a four year hiatus, the band reformed in 2013 và released the album Save Rock & Roll. The album not only lead khổng lồ a huge hit in “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up)” but also featured an artist who knows a thing or two about writing songs for Disney: Elton John.

Now Fall Out Boy’s music can be heard in Disney’s latest Animated Classic, Big nhân vật 6. The band’s tuy nhiên “Immortals” is the only non-score track on the film’s album và is played both during the movie as well as in its closing credits. In fact, if you’ve seen the film, you probably left the theatre humming the tune.

On Friday, November 7th, three of the band’s members (Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz và Joe Trohman) stopped by The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood to lớn introduce the film to an excited crowd. Afterwards, I got to sit down with them in the Richard và Robert Sherman Star Dressing Room & ask them about the song, Big anh hùng 6 và some of their other favorite Disney films:


Kyle Burbank: So your song “Immortals” is used during a montage in this film. Animated films take a long time lớn make so when did you guys enter the process và was the tuy vậy written specifically for the film or was it something you guys had left over from Save Rock & Roll? 

Joe Trohman: So the interesting thing that we learned about how animated films are made is that since every single thing in the scene that you see needs to be created, including all the background noise và everything… There’s not a lot of deleted scenes because they don’t want to lớn have lớn create anything that they don’t know for sure is going khổng lồ be in the film. So when we went there it was storyboard và ideas.

Patrick Stump: We saw a lot of production art; there wasn’t a lot of animation yet. Well, that’s what we say, but I know there was actually a ton of animation already done but not to—

JT: But not what we saw.

PS: Yeah. And to your question khổng lồ how we wrote it và when we wrote it, it was something that we started as soon as we left that meeting. I had so many ideas I think because of the world, because of San Fransokyo. The idea of San Fransokyo I was just so excited about that that I think I went home and wrote like four songs kind of for it. And this was the first— you know, usually your first thoughts is your best thought — this was my first vision.

Pete Wentz: and a b-side from Save Rock và Roll would not have worked. I mean I don’t know that we even have real b-sides but something left over wouldn’t have sounded the right— This needed khổng lồ exist within the universe of Big anh hùng 6 lyrically, thematically, sonically.


KB: I just feel lượt thích Save Rock and Roll, a lot of those songs vày feel very heroic as evidenced by the fact that they use “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark” in the trailer. So…

PS: I definitely think that us as a band, we probably got asked to vị it because of the sound we kind of culminated on Save Rock and Roll, so I’m sure that it’s no coincidence that us this time in our career và this time for the movie that it worked out, you know? Because, I mean, I’m sure if it were right after Folie <à Deux> I don’t know that we’d be the right band for that.

KB: Did you guy get a chance lớn meet Ryan who voices Hiro? Because I interviewed him a few weeks ago and he was talking about what a big fan he was of you guys.

JT: Yes.

PW: I talked to lớn him & I was trying lớn cart my 6-year-old khổng lồ the oto because he was about lớn turn grumpy and he was like, “Nice khổng lồ meet you; I’m a big fan,” & I was like, “Cool,” you know, whatever. And then he mentioned like a bunch of songs specifically and I was like, “I’m gonna stop and talk khổng lồ him,” because like this guy is actually a fan! Or went on Wikipedia the night before or whatever, but he’s like actually a tín đồ so we stopped và had lượt thích a cool interaction.

KB: Yeah, I was excited for him. So I have to lớn ask if you guys have favorite Disney films.

JT: I lượt thích Fantasia. I was discussing this with my wife at the premiere before the movie started. I know what hers are; she likes all princess related ones. But yeah, Fantasia’s really my most favorite. I mean, I love pretty much all of them, but yeah, I dunno, I like that there’s no talking in it. There’s just excellent score and it’s kinda pretty trippy and weird & dark.

PS: I think we grew up at a pretty awesome time because it was the advent of the return of— the big return of the Disney movie, the Disney cartoon. After Great Mouse Detective, you had The Little Mermaid, The Lion King & Aladdin — Not in that order, but whatever. That was a great moment for animation và all those songs & stories, that was great. Và then Beauty and the Beast won an Oscar right?


KB: It was nominated for an Oscar, but it won a Golden Globe.

PS: Right. But it was nominated for Best Picture, right?

KB: Right.

PS: Which is crazy! It’s huge… But anyway, I think Disney, I think a lot of those movies had a big influence. But then also — we’re sitting & there’s all this Sherman Brothers stuff around us — I didn’t really know about a lot of the movies they had done until I got married & my wife is a big tín đồ of Mary Poppins and Bedknobs and Broomsticks and all the stuff that they wrote, so now I’d say that Mary Poppins is up there too.

KB: Pete?

PW: Oh, shoot… I appreciate Up, and I appreciate any of the stuff that really has a broad appeal. Like, even when I’m watching Big anh hùng 6, I’m like, “Oh my god,” there’s lượt thích jokes that probably go over some of the kid’s heads but… I guess being a dad và going lớn the movies I love being able to lớn have things that I can relate to.

JT: A lot of the Pixar stuff.

PW: Yeah, I actually didn’t want to go for Pixar because that’s a whole other ball of wax, but I’d say that Ratatouille is one of my favorite movies ever, probably.

JT: quái dị Inc. 

KB: That’s probably mine, if you include Pixar.

PS: I think Ratatouille is pretty special for artists. As an artist there’s a lot — all of the stuff with the critic you’re like, “yeah, totally.”
