Comebacks are hard, but Fall Out Boy seem to know how to avoid the risk of a possible failure.

The band choose to borrow from different genres and mix various elements in their latest album American Beauty/American Psycho, in order to craft a sound that is actually their own.

The result is a fine piece of work from the alternative rock heartthrobs that is overflowing with anthems, youth and passion.

Our personal favourite is Uma Thurman which brilliantly juxtaposes the Pulp Fiction actress to The Munsters theme tune - the best FOB has produced in years.

To celebrate the release of American Beauty/American Psycho, we are hosting a swag of giveaway goodness for Fall Out Boy fans! Thanks to the lovely peeps at Universal Music Singapore.

Yes, we are giving away three sets of Fall Out Boy goodness consisting of FOB's brand new album American Beauty/American Psycho, FOB poster, AND a set of FOB nesting dolls!

The joining of McFly & Busted has brought happiness to all.

McBusted, one of the most successful bands of 2014, never do anything by halves and their debut album proves just that.

I have always been more of a McFly supporter than McBusted's, but I have happily accepted this new formation as they seem to be having so much fun.

McBusted proved they are great musicians and can write great music on their new album. Air Guitar is probably the best track and has hints of Busted's breakout hit What I Go To School For.

Their success wasn't only based on their old number one singles. They can and they SHOULD have more number ones, they can and they SHOULD be as famous as they used to be at the beginning of their careers, and most of all they deserve recognition, respect, and a chance from all those people who "hate" them only because "they want McFly back".

Thanks to the ever-lovely folks at Universal Music Singapore, we've got 5 copies of McBusted albums to giveaway!

All you have to do to get in the draw for this giveaway is to show us your best air guitar performance!

Sorry, just joking.

1) Follow us on Twitter.

"I wanna live selfless / Instead of just floating by / Living every day like it’s my last!" New Found Glory's Jordan Pundik crows on Resurrection's no holds barred opener, Selfless.
