Its that pop culture thing again, where people dont care about anything but the superficial, I also thought there was something so ironically anthemic about the chorus, where its not something you want to sing along to, because its vacuous and empty. So I wanted something really anthemic underneath it, like something youd hear at sports games or whatever, because I wanted people to hear it, I didnt want anything to be superficial on this record unless the point was to point out superficiality. -- Patrick Stump on the songs message, Wentz referred to I Dont Care as a narcissists anthem, further commenting that To me, its like a YouTube anthem for the YouTube generation, just about how our attention span is about seven seconds.

Its just as great to come out to the boos and this one is about portraying the band, too, because theres been videos where its been about individual characters, and this one is really a band-based video. Everyone has really equal face time, and theres a communist aspect to the video in the imagery, but were also trying to something thats equal.
