We dive into YouTube to track down the best takes on FOB classics.

Fall Out Boy have always enjoyed throwing a few cover version of their own into the mix, from "Beat It" to "Uptown Funk". But what about the hundreds of online fans uploading their own covers to YouTube? We tracked down some of the best versions out there for your viewing pleasure. Check them out below:

1) MAX - "Young Volcanoes"

Ok so, obviously, this isn't exactly a YouTuber cover. But Pete Wentz's protege MAX does a smoothed out pop vocal on the Save Rock 'N' Roll single that deserves a listen in its own right. Plus, Pete makes a very welcome cameo in the video.


2) Postmodern Jukebox - "Sugar We're Going Down"

These guys have been uploading swing-tastic versions of all your favourite hits for years and this take on FOB's biggest song is an undoubted highlight. 


3) Brooklyn Duo - "Centuries"

The use of piano and cello turns the stadium anthem into a pretty convincing piece of modern classical music. Would not sound out of place in Carnegie Hall.


4) GSU Marching Band - "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark"

Can we get these guys at the Super Bowl next year please?


5) Caleb Hyles - "Uma Thurman"

This dude gets major points for those dance moves. Solid voice too. Obviously.
