These Fall Out Boy lyrics might be appropriate year-round, but they become even more apt as Thanksgiving approaches.
The Thanksgiving season has rolled around once again, and it’s time to give thanks and eat a lot of stuffing, potatoes, turkey and pie because pie is clearly the best part.
Additionally, it’s time to give thanks for our favorite musicians and their art. From classic Nirvana to today’s biggest scene band twenty one pilots, we are grateful for every note.
One song is relevant at this time and every time of year. Fall Out Boy’s “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” is a classic hit that never gets old.
Plus, remember that hilarious music video featuring a bunch of chimpanzees and Kim Kardashian West? 2007 was a crazy time, but we couldn’t be more thankful.
Test your “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” lyric knowledge right here.
In 2007, Fall Out Boy released a music video for their Infinity On High single, “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs,” which featured a guest appearance from Kim Kardashian.
She joined the four members of Fall Out Boy and multiple chimpanzees for the clip.”I’m a fan of Fall Out Boy and I agreed to do it,” Kardashian said in an interview with News Times in ’07.
“And it was so much fun working with them. … I think music videos kind of all show the same thing. They kind of want a hot girl and cool cars. This one was totally different.”
In 2017, Kardashian posted a Snapchat update of her watching the video and gushing over the nostalgia of her scene with bassist Pete Wentz.
In 2018, Wentz revealed he still keeps in touch with Kardashian.
“I stay in touch with her a little bit—just emails here and there,” Pete Wentz tells People. “I ran into her, and she was probably the nicest person ever. She’s exactly the same as she was then, except she’s, like, a trillion times more famous.”
Of course, the two now have more than just a music video appearance in common—they both have sons named Saint, too. What’s better? The two exchanged gifts, with Wentz throwing in some hope for a collab for the two Saints in the future.
“We ran into her right after her Saint was born, and we’d sent her some boots that had his initials on them,” Wentz tells the entertainment source. “She sent Saint Yeezys and that kind of stuff. Very sweet.”
And on that music collab? “I hope they start a band one day or something!” he tells People.
