THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: FALL OUT BOY - I DON'T CARE

"I Don't Care", by Fall Out Boy
"I Don't Care" is Fall Out Boy's first single from their fifth studio album Folie à Deux.

It is its album's best known song, being certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments in excess of 1 million units. In the United-States, the song reached #21 the Billboard Hot 100, 19 places lower than the #2 lead single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", of the band's previous album, Infinity on High. It received radio play at modern rock and pop stations, charting at #21 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Tracks and #22 on the Pop 100 chart.

The song has been described as a very political track by Patrick Stump, the lead vocalist of the band, but not political in the traditional sense; more about the politics of a relationship. Stump has said that this song is about the superficiality and selfishness that is associated with pop culture. The song was number 68 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.
