This Ain’t a Scene, It’s a Goddamn Social Commentary


I was just watching the video for Fall Out Boy’s “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arm Race” (a song which I think rocks, btw), and I’d always kind of listened to it absently on the radio and figured it was about war or violence on the streets or something genuinely arms-related. After watching the video and reading the lyrics, it occurred to me that it’s probably a commentary on the Hollywood social scene and the way the celebutante wars are strategized (by the ‘tantes themselves) to play out in the tabloids and in the blogosphere. Lead singer Pete Wentz has a killer crow’s nest from which to watch this type of drama unfold, based on his relationship with Ashlee Simpson. I dunno, just thought I’d share.
