New York City will still be frozen solid tomorrow when Fall Out Boy unleash their new video for "Rat a tat," but bassist Pete Wentz tells us the band and guest vocalist Courtney Love were sweltering when they shot the Save Rock and Roll clip in Brooklyn over the summer. "It was far hotter and less hip than we had imagined," he admits. "Courtney is a trooper for sticking it out. Throw your hands in the air if it's too hot to care." Read on for more color commentary from Wentz on the shoot.

Love Is All

"Courtney's performance here reminded me of why I and all of us fell in love with her in the first place. She has the ability to find the raw nerve in all of us — I mean, even I was ready to sign up for her evil army here."
