I Don't Care Lyrics - Fall Out Boy

Review The Song (25)

Say my name and his in the same breath
I dare you to say they taste the same
Let the leaves fall off in the summer
And let December glow in flames

Brace myself and let go
Start it over again in Mexico
These friends, they don't love you
They just love the hotel suites

Now, I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

Said I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

Oh take a chance
Let your body get a tolerance
sponsored links
I'm not a chance, put a heat wave in your pants
Pull a breath like another cigarette
Pawn shop, I'm trading 'em (trading 'em)

I'm the oracle in my chest
Let the guitar scream like a fascist
Sweat it out, shut your mouth
Free love on the streets
But in the alley and I ain't that cheap, now

I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

Said I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

Said-a, I don't care just a-what you think
As long as it's about me
You said I don't care just what you think
As long as it's about me
Said-a I don't care (I don't care)
Said I don't care (I don't care)
Said I don't care,
I don't care
I don't care (I don't care)
I said-a
I don't care
I don't care

I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

I don't care what you think
As long as it's about me
The best of us can find happiness in misery

Ok before I get to the song I wanna say what!? why does everyone here always have to FIGHT with each other over random things? Come on it's hard to not have lyrics/songs w/ the same word(s) as other artists/bands so plz stop fighting & lets just be cool w/ each other ok? Alright now 2 the song, it's def my rock out song I wish I could scream this song to anyone who's ever judged me over somthin stupid.. but in this song is fob saying that to anyone who's ever put them down & I love them even more 4 doin tht

Haven't any of you ever noticed...? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/31/11

Ok so I guess you all are arguing that FOB used 3 words from a Nirvana song? I'm guessing these words are 'I don't care'. Am I right?
In case none of you have noticed, there are a lot of songs with the words I don't care in them.
So the title to a Nirvana song is I don't care? A title to a Green Day song is I Don't Care. I didn't see anyone complaining that they had stolen a name. Are you all complaining because you hate FOB and like Nirvana? Then why the hell are you looking at lyrics to a FOB song? Just go and do something that you enjoy that doesn't bother anyone else.
Thank you.

Ok, I dont love fall out boy and i dont love nivana. So heres a nuetral point of view. Neither this or drain you are that great of songs. However, i do appreciate nirvana's work a little more and these lyrics are a little pathetic. Still, there is no point to getall worked up about ONE line in a song thats the same as the other. Im sure all you nirvana fans hove something better to do than sit around and complain about this song.

All of you need to go commit suicide. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/15/10

You, each and everyone of you is a waste of precious air. Seriously, who squabbles over song lyrics? You people sound like a bunch of yifffags from Jersey Shore. When I see the crap you hit each other with over a compy it makes me want to swim to Africa and smack a poor child with a nail board. I mean WTF!?!?! Go home and contract an STD or something. Be normal people and remove your morbidly obese asses off the computer chair and get a job. Your mom's basement is filled with Radon222. Newsflash! That is radioactive! You want to be a fat, 40 year old cancer patient who still lives with his/her mom?

wtf is it to u?? | Reviewer: wtf is it too u | 10/9/09

loook all u dumb fucked up retarted people that are over reacting because Fall Out Boy used one line from a nirvana Song seriously need to grow up.firstly they changed it and secondly they need to get permission to use them OBVIOUSLY they did so growup u immature fucks :P

seriously? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/29/09

to heck with all you haters!!!! you can shut up about this okay? this is a great song from a pretty frikin amazing band and who gives a frikin crap if they use what, three words from some other song. seriously, we're trying NOT to start the third world war.

Shut Up | Reviewer: Kira | 9/17/09

ALL of you. This is what happens to the populars. Someone finds something that sounds like another thing, looks like another thing, or in some way seems 'ripped' from something else, and everyone shits themselves.
By fighting you are only confirming that you actually care what some mindless person has to say, and that's low.
Why can't anyone just say 'I like this song' or 'I don't' instead of flaming each other because of a likeness in lyrics?
I bet you could if you tried, so PLEASE. Shut up.

cobain | Reviewer: Fucking Obnoxious Bastards | 9/9/09

it IS in fact bullshit that fall out boy can get away with this, and they have such dedicated ignorant fans as to defend it. sure they changed it from "unless" to "as long" (frankly a worse phrasing than the original) but the word play, the part that intrigues the listener, the hard part in song writing, is identical. Cobain was a song writer, an innovator, and an artist. fall out boy are none of these. they are a product, and you their fans, are consumers and nothing else. kurt cobain changed the world of music and the lives of millions, fall out boy only has the power to influence the price of sony's stock, and i guess the opinion of their shallow and ignorant fanbase.

STFU | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/12/09

if you don't like the song, get off the fucking lyrics, if you do like it, then good for you. personally I like both bands, and I really don't see a huge issue. and I fucking love Nirvana. so shut the hell up, it's really not a huge deal. quit being so damn immature about it. you know nothing.

It's not really plagarism :/ | Reviewer: Ashley | 4/15/09

So what if they used one line from a song. At least they had they courtesy to change a couple of words. If they used they used the exact same lyric then fine, blow up at them or whatever but they didn't do that. People, it's called paraphrasing and so what if they did? Nirvana was amazing and words can't really define their influnce (I mean they they basically started a whole new genre of music) and Fall Out Boy is really good too. So don't get made if they used one line it's not like they ripped off an entire song like some bands out there do...

Let's not be irrational | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/7/09

I personally like Fall Out Boy, and no, you do not have to be emo or have wacked clothing choices to like their music! Taking approximate lyrics from another song is not plagerism. Yes, a nod to the originator would have been nice, but nothing truely wrong was done. You guys freaking out seriously need to get the sticks out of your butts and let people enjoy the music they want to. It's a free country.

O Plz | Reviewer: Kaya West | 3/15/09

All yu fall out boy haters that are mad because they ripped a line from Kurt Cobain, need to stop the bullshit. Fall Out Boy is famous you're not. Fall Out Boy is making music history and money and more record and you're not. If you have anything to say about that then email me at KayaRockstarr@aol.com.

fall out boy sucks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/15/09

Fall out Boy should never be mentioned in the same breath as Nirvana. Fall out boy couldn't have picked a better lyricist to rip off of than Kurt Cobain because he was a genius. He was a face of a generation and when he died so did music. Fall out boy is nothing but a bunch of Emo fruitcakes who wear ridiculous looking attire and play bad music. Emo is for faggets. Grunge is for rockers

wow | Reviewer: josh | 1/25/09

Are you fucking serious? oh shit they took one line from a nirvana song and made this song out of it. Big fucking deal. It's not a rip off. A rip off is singing the same song but not citing that it's not the orginal or taking a beat already used and not saying who it's from. One fucking line. Get over it. This is a good song. You have to go to different sources to get inspiration and good job to fall out boy for going to one of the bands they listened to. You shouldn't be worried about one line being "stolen". You nirvana fans should be happy that another band apperciates what nirvana said and wants the world to hear it. Nirvana was a garbage band to begin with. Cobain was a pussy and their music wasn't even good. Get your head out of your asses and just enjoy a good song.

Whut iz ze prumblem? | Reviewer: Sanctuarii | 1/28/09

Okay, guys. Read it with me.

"I don't care what you think unless it is about me."
"I don't care what you think just as long as it's about me."

This is only, what, ONE LINE from two songs? It is the whole song? No. Did FOB rip the whole beat? No. Did FOB rip ANYTHING ELSE from Drain You? As far as I can tell, no. So, what's the problem here?

"it's not exact but close enuff" isn't plagarism, which is what you guys are assuming. If it was, I think someone in the legal business would know this by now and sue someone's *** in the process. Maybe it was an influence, maybe it's a subliminal message saying "NIRVANA PLZ", who knows? FOB does, maybe. All I know is one thing:

This song is awesome. Stop bashing because of three simple words. Let the bands battle, not the fans. Because if the fans do, then it'll be a bloody mess(No british pun there).
