Fall Out Boy have recorded a cover of Elton John‘s classic hit ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting,’ and PopCrush has the exclusive premiere of the song!

While the rock band may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Elton John, ‘Saturday Night’ is actually the perfect song for Fall Out Boy to cover. They give it an updated — and upbeat! — rocker edge, complete with Patrick Stump’s distinct vocals. (Plus, the band previously collaborated with Elton John on the track ‘Save Rock and Roll,’ which is on their latest album.)

The tune is featured on the super deluxe, remastered edition of ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,’ the re-release of Elton John’s 1973 album by the same name, which will be available on March 25. The five-disc box set also features Elton John covers from Ed SheeranHunter Hayes, the Band PerryZac Brown Band and more, plus dozens of hits by Elton himself.

A recording of ‘Live at the Hammersmith 1973′ on CD, a DVD of the film ‘Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norma Jean and Other Things’ and a 100-page illustrated hardback book are also included in the ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ set.

Listen to Fall Out Boy’s version of ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ here on PopCrush first! If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the box set here.
