Listen to Machine Gun Kelly's Fall Out Boy-sampling, Yungblud & The Used-featuring new song, "Body Bag"

Bad Boy/Interscope Records

Machine Gun Kelly just dropped his new, pop punk-influenced, Travis Barker-produced album Tickets to My Downfall last Friday, and he’s already shared more music.

The rapper-turned-rocker has released a deluxe version of Tickets to My Downfall, dubbed Tickets to My Downfall (Sold Out). The expanded collection includes six bonus tracks, such as the new tune “Body Bag,” featuring Yungblud and The Used frontman Bert McCracken.

By the way, if “Body Bag” sounds familiar to you, that might be because it samples the Fall Out Boy classic “Dance, Dance.” According to a tweet from MGK, he was able to include “Body Bag” on the deluxe album after Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump cleared the sample at the “last minute.”

“‘Dance, Dance’ was a big inspiration for our record,” Kelly says. “The fact [Wentz and Stump] picked up the phone last night and said YES is punk as f***.”

Tickets to My Downfall (Sold Out) also includes a cover of Paramore‘s “Misery Business,” and an acoustic version of the single “Bloody Valentine.”
