que?   life like this


the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

the worst is that I’m broke

When I was a baby in my first year at junior college, Lupe Fiasco put out an album called Food & Liquor. All I remember from that initial listen through was that a female’s voice opened the album. I was hearing a woman speak for a man, introducing a story about the state of life on the southside of Chicago from the perspective of a woman. It was the first time I had ever heard a male artist step back and allow a woman to tell her side of the story. As a young woman it felt important, being given space like that.

I’ve been lucky enough to be a fan of Fall Out Boy through their musical maturity, and it’s a pleasure to listen to their evolution of sound with each new record. Perhaps FOB understands exactly how important that Lupe album was for me as a female fan of rap music, because beginning with Debbie Harry’s guest vocals on West Cost Smoker, where she offers a great chorus of call & response, moving to Courtney Love’s biting spoken word in Rat A Tat, Fall Out Boy has made a conscious effort to pay homage to the greats of rock music. And that’s the thing. It’s not that they’re choosing women; it’s that they’ve established that the basis of rock music would be nothing without the contributions of women.

Naturally, this evening when I clicked the link that nonnonmodernist tweeted, I immediately started crying. Fall Out Boy released a rock anthem based on Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”. If you remember nothing else about today, remember this: the foundation of this new FOB single - a song about creating ripples, about continued relevance, a song that will be played on rock radio and hopefully touch a young girl the way that Food & Liquor touched me - was created by a woman.
