Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump has released a theme song for a new Spider-Man cartoon and it sounds exactly like you’d expect it would.
As per NME, the cartoon is called Spidey And His Amazing Friends and it’s set to premiere this summer. It’s also the first Marvel show to be made for Disney Junior.
And getting Stump to record the theme song looks like a masterstroke. It’s fun and catchy, powered by massive energy. It’s also got a guitar riff that will not leave your mind for days. I might watch this show just to hear the theme song play.
Stump is no stranger to soundtrack work either, of course. He made the film score for 2019’s wonderfully named The Banana Splits Movie, a comedy horror that reimagines the old children’s TV series The Banana Splits. Yeah, me neither.
He also soundtracked 2017’s Gnome Alone, a computer-animated fantasy comedy about a young girl and a group of gnomes taking on a pack of rabid beasts called Troggs (tagging ‘Saving the world begins at gnome’). Stump really knows how to pick ’em.
Last month, Stump’s band Fall Out Boy rescheduled the remaining dates of their Hella Mega Tour alongside Green Day and Weezer. The huge joint tour will now take place next year after it was already postponed from last year to this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bands will now tour together in summer 2022 in correspondence with the rescheduled U.K. and Europe tour dates announced in April.
Fall Out Boy, Green Day and Weezer fans all in one place? That’s a lot of pop-punk energy. I really wouldn’t want to be in that mosh pit.
