Since February 2013, Fall Out Boy has been releasing one music video at a time in support of Save Rock and Roll as part of an ongoing series titled The Young Blood Chronicles.
The Chronicles, which featured appearances from album collaborators Courtney Love, Big Sean and Foxes, as well as cameos from 2 Chainz and Tommy Lee, tell the story of a famous band that goes to Hell and back, wrestling with fame, fortune, drugs and zombie strippers along the way.
The band unveiled the final two chapters of their epic music video series Wednesday night with vignettes for “Miss Missing You” and “Save Rock and Roll,” the latter of which stars Elton John.
Watch the videos below, which feature singer Patrick Stump on his signature Gretsch Stump-O-Matic and guitarist Joe Trohman rocking a Gretsch White Falcon.

“The main difference between this and the original is that this one has an adjustable truss rod, and it has X-bracing so it actually sounds like a guitar,” said Mike Lewis, who developed the new Gretsch Roots Collection.
