Fall Out Boy sings about Gem City in 'Uma Thurman' song

As clear as the day is long, the Gem City appears in "Uma Thurman," a catchy and quirky track on rockers Fall Out Boy's new album "American Beauty/American Psycho."

The song is mostly about crushing on Uma Thurman (see post from Fall Out Boy's Facebook page below), but it makes repeat mention to the Gem City, Dayton's nickname since the 1800s.

And may death find you alive

Take me down the line

In Gem City we turn the tide

You’ll find your way

And may death find you alive

Take me down the line

In Gem City we turn the tide"

Not sure what it all means or what the band connection to Dayton could be, but it is sure fun to talk about.
