My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)
Trent Swartzentruber teaches you how to play “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” by Fall Out Boy. It was released earlier in 2013, where it charted in the top 5 in the UK, as well as debuting at number 28 on the Billboard in the US. It sold over 160,000 singles on iTunes in the first week of its release.
The song is the first release after the band took a three-year break, before regrouping. It’s been featured quite a lot among sporting events, including player introductions for the Houston Rockets, being used to marked the postseason of the MLB, NBA playoffs, as well as Monday Night football, and many other commercial appearances.
The band performed the song on Conan, recreating a scene from This Is Spinal Tap, in which Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman emerged from alien pods on stage. Pete’s pod got stuck for much of the song, and Spinal Tap bassist, Harry Shearer, emerged on stage to fill in as part of the joke. 

Trent plays a Gibson Midtown Custom in the lesson.
