Fall Out Boy's From Under The Cork Tree Videos Have Disappeared From YouTube

Iconic videos like Sugar, We're Goin Down and Dance, Dance are no longer available to watch on YouTube. What gives, Fall Out Boy?

Fall Out Boy's From Under The Cork Tree Videos Have Disappeared From YouTube

With the 15th anniversary of Fall Out Boy's second album From Under The Cork Tree fast approaching in May, it stands to reason that fans will be wanting to celebrate by re-watching the band's classic music videos from that era. And if you'd scheduled a full day of FOB video-watching for May 3, well… you might have to come up with a change of plan.

As it stands, the Chicago titans' videos for …Cork Tree hits Dance, Dance, Sugar, We're Goin Down and A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More 'Touch Me' have all been deleted from YouTube. Not only do the trio of clips not come up when searched for, they also can't be found via previous embeds, with a message stating each time that, 'This video has been removed by the user,' coming up instead. WHAT?!

Interestingly, there's a fairly new Fall Out Boy YouTube playlist on their official account called 'Remastered FOB vids', with three deleted videos contained within (classics like Thnks Fr Th Mmrs and I Don't Care from other eras are available to watch). Does this mean the band are updating their 15-year-old promos and making them look all shiny and new again in preparation for …Cork Tree's birthday? We sure hope so.

For the album's anniversary last year, Kerrang! caught up with producer Neal Avron to hear all sorts of tales from the studio. Discussing Sugar, We're Goin Down and how vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump and bassist Pete Wentz had an argument over the hit single's chorus, Neal said:

“I did not see that (laughs), but I can tell you there was always tension on every record at some point. Typically, that would come in the form of Pete writing the lyrics and Patrick editing and putting them together. If Patrick sang it with Pete’s general approval of, ‘Yeah, I’m down with these lyrics,’ then after we worked really hard doing all the performances and getting it just right, Pete would come in and go, ‘You know, I wanna change this line and this line and this line…’ and Patrick would really blow a gasket, because he’d worked so hard on the performance, and the harmonies. His harmonies are very intricate and take a lot of time to develop, so he wasn’t happy re-doing stuff like that. Pete was more of a big picture guy. He didn’t wanna be in the studio for 12 hours a day. He wanted to come in with fresh ears. He’ll tell you this himself: he had the ears of a 13-year-old girl. That’s how he heard music. So I think that having that fresh perspective was helpful for him.”

When asked what Neal personally felt he brought to the record, he responded: “On Sugar… when that song came to me from the A&R guy, the verse was completely different – it was slow and plodding, and to my mind, ill-fitting of the song, because the chorus was obviously outstanding. So during pre-production I asked the guys to rewrite a new verse – a lot of that came down to Patrick, ’cause he was the main music writer. We’d do pre-production in the day, then at three or four in the afternoon when I’d leave, I’d say, ‘I think you need a new verse for this,’ and I’d come back the next day and they’d have a new verse. And we went through that process for five or six days, and finally on the last day they played me what became the verse on the album, and as soon as they played it, I said, ‘That’s the one!’”
