Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz has appeared on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast. 

After talking about recording the theme song for the Ghostbusters reboot, Pete was questioned about what other themes they have recorded. 

"So we did that and we did the song 'Immortals' which was for Big Hero 6. Then we've written for movies before that have not happened which is an interesting process. 

The first time we wrote was in 2004/2005 for Shrek. They had temped in a song. Maybe it was The Rolling Stones. So we met and they said 'here's the song we have temped in' and showed us the rendering and it looked weird. Then we went back to the studio and said 'well they asked us for that but they don't know that's what they want'. We should give them what we think they want. You can imagine how that went. They ended up using the Stones song because whatever.

So when we wrote for Disney's Big Hero 6, that one was a really cool process because we were involved, but at the same time you're writing for somebody else's thing."

Can you imagine how this would have sounded?
