After Fall Out Boy released a cover of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” conversation continues around very mixed reactions to the remake, including some burning reviews.

The reason? Primarily the cover’s lyrics.

Fall Out Boy’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” has updated lyrics to include newsworthy events from 1989 – when Joel’s original released – through 2023, with a slew of references like “World Trade,” “Brexit,” “Stranger Things,” “Taylor Swift,” “Obama,” “Columbine,” “Sandy Hook,” “Twilight,” “Tiger King” and “Michael Jordan 23″ plus “Michael Jordan 45,” among others.

Some notable happenings that called for major headlines in that time period, including the COVID-19 pandemic, were not mentioned. The references weren’t made chronologically, either.
