VH1's 'SoundClash' Sprang From Questlove's Childhood Viewing Habits | Yahoo Music - Yahoo Music -

Serving as the executive producer of the show has given Questlove a new appreciation for the power of networking. “These initial shows are definitely the result of 20 years of relationships,” he says. “I became really friendly with Patrick [Stump] from Fall Out Boy six or seven years ago. He’s an absolute music nerd and we’ve always had a great relationship with T.I., and I’ve worked with Ed Sheeran a few times. His level of respect and love for the Roots is baffling to me. So a lot of this was based on relationships I’ve had working on the Fallon show, making friends, exchanging numbers, hanging out and going to dinner to various people, and the 20 years of touring with the Roots.”

Questlove says several names came up before Diplo landed the gig. “I really wanted a music nerd, so there was Fred Armisen, there was Janina Gavankar from ‘True Blood,’ at one point even Patrick from Fall Out Boy…A-Trak was also in consideration.”

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -The world renowned band Fall Out Boy posted a video directed at Garden Spot High School’s marching band. 

Eastern Lancaster County School District banned two songs, Bruno Mars’ “Locked out of Heaven” and Fall Out Boy’s “Thanks for the Memories” from their marching band’s playlist. The band posted the video online 72 hours later. 

"We heard about a school band that was going to perform this song and someone decided not to allow them to do the song and we just wanted to say we stand on the side of creativity and making music and the hard work that goes into that and we would like to come back to your school and perform with your band at your school at some point. A song that is sanctioned if possible," said Fall Out Boy. 

That message was well received. 

"It was truly shocking…it really was," said Garden Spot marching band mom Jane Olin. 

"I think it is really cool they would actually do something like that for us," said marching band member Kyle Redding. 

Redding said it meant a lot to him and his band that Fall Out Boy would stick up for them. 

"They are really awesome people and it makes me happy that someone is actually caring for us," said Redding. "I’ve never been to one of their concerts but it would be even cooler than going to a concert to play with them."

The songs were banned because the school district said they have inappropriate lyrics. 

Would the district’s Superintendent, Dr. Robert Hollister, allow Fall Out Boy to perform with the marching band? According to marching bank mom Paulene Redding, the answer to that question is “yes.”

"He would be more than happy to work on getting some stuff done and Fall Out Boy should get in touch with Dr. Hollister," said Redding.
