It's clever because 'Centuries' is a unit of 100. It's CLEVER.
When Reddit user u/Jos4402012b shared that 'Centuries' by Fall Out Boy was the 100th song released by the band, we were intrigued. Surely that's not possible. Surely that's an exaggeration?
So of course, we had to run the numbers. Here are the rules though: only official releases count. Covers that were recorded for compilations are out (sorry 'What's This?' from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'). Covers that were officially released on Fall Out Boy albums or EPs do count (so hello 'Beat It' featuring John Mayer). Collaborations count, but only if they're proper collaborations (so 'Stayin' Out All Night' Boys Of Zummer remix counts - it's on their Spotify).
Every song on every album and EP counts (except live versions). Remixes only count if they were on an album or EP.
With all that said, here we go - we're proving that 'Centuries' is Fall Out Boy's 100th song. Every Fall Out Boy song that pre-dates 'Centuries', in mostly chronological order:
