After covering the song live at Riot Fest, State Champs have released an official version of Fall Out Boy's Chicago Is So Two Years Ago.

"You want it, you got it," the pop-punks say of their rendition of the Take This To Your Grave banger – which is a wonderfully faithful rendition that still has that lovely State Champs touch.

When ranking Fall Out Boy's discography for Kerrang! a couple of years ago, Pete Wentz put Take This To Your Grave in fifth place (out of seven), explaining that: "There’s so many versions of me that puts this record on the top of this list, because it was the one that started it all.

"Making that record, we only had that amount of songs. We recorded it with no money and so there was so much that happened in the making of it that just happened by chance. Even meeting the Fueled By Ramen guys…"
