Hear Fall Out Boy Cover Elton John’s ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’
By Shannon Carlin
The band is putting their own spin on Elton’s hit, “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting,” for the remastered edition of his 1973 album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, out March 25.
On their cover, the guys–who hooked up with Elton for the titular closing track on their latest album, Save Rock and Roll–add a little extra fury to the fighting song, kicking up their heels and making it clear, Saturday night really is the night for fighting. To you know, get a little action in.
The remastered edition of Goodbye Yellow Road, which features a 2-disc set and 4-disc set, comes complete with a bonus tribute album that features artists like Miguel, Ed Sheeran, Hunter Hayes, the Band Perry, John Grant, Emeli Sande and the Zac Brown Band covering some of the Rocket Man’s biggest hits.
