Fall Out Boy are known for leaving an Easter egg or two lying around in their music. In fact, listeners have discovered 15 hidden clues on their 2005 album. However, there’s one particular line that fans are still divided over: What is Pete Wentz really whispering in “Dance, Dance”?
Fans have reported various different theories on what Wentz is actually whispering over the years. The most popular happens to be “Joe Trohman is lame.”
However, back in the day, Trohman told his Tumblr followers that that phrase isn’t in the song, which was brought up in a previous Reddit thread. This led listeners to believe that Wentz is actually saying something else.
Then, another Reddit user was determined to get to the bottom of it when u/neetman2477 posted in the Fall Out Boy thread about the whisper. As a result, they received a few different theories about what Wentz really says.
In the past, Wentz has managed to confuse fans about the “Dance, Dance” whisper. In the video, listeners can hear him say “We’re going into D minor.” He has reportedly whispered “I just miss you so much” during live performances.
However, one fan isolated the vocals in the Fall Out Boy song and has apparently uncovered what Wentz really whispers in “Dance, Dance.” According to the video, he actually says “Joe Trohman is lame,” which is recorded backward in the official track.
