The fairly graphic dystopian themed video for “Rat A Tat” shows Patrick Stump being filled with music destruction propaganda. The band members of Fall Out Boy attempt to save Patrick, but he has already succumbed to the ideology that music evil. The torture scene with Patrick is a slight parody of the movie, A Clockwork Orange.

On the complete opposite spectrum of “Rat A Tat”, “Irresistible” carries a stronger EDM sound and has a very humorous video about a pug.

The song “I Don’t Care”, consists of Fall Out Boy’s typical pop-rock sound. The antics by the Fall Out Boy band members in the video also falls in line with the rock and roll lifestyle image that they have cultivated. However, the music video takes an unique twist by adding in a whole host of disguised celebrities. The end of the video is followed by an odd reveal by Guns N’ Roses band member, Gilby Clarke.
