You wouldn't know it to listen to them, but Fall Out Boy must be classy and thoughtful. Otherwise they wouldn't be taking their new album's title, Infinity On High, from a letter by Vincent Van Gogh. NME relays the MTV News story (which will spew unwelcome flash and videos and audio at you, so I'm not linking to it):

Speaking to MTV.COM, bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz was reluctant to explain the title's significance, saying: "As for what that means in relation to the record, we'll just let it unfold when people hear it."

But maybe the whole allusion thing will gradually become accepted as a mark of dubious quality.
