Music video[edit]

The music video for "Young and Menace" premiered on April 27, 2017 on Fall Out Boy's official Vevo and YouTube channels. A trailer ran for it briefly in select Chicago theatres on April 21, 2017.

The music video features a young biracial child suffering through domestic violence within their household, the child's parents are dressed as llama/alpaca puppet "monsters". Wentz has stated "The concept of the video is realizing that your place in the world is maybe not just what you thought it was growing up. I grew up as a weird kid in a place where I felt like I didn't fit it, it wasn't until punk/rock and stuff where I felt like I found other people [who] similarly didn't fit in."[5]
