Tim Burton Looks to Blink-182 and Fall Out Boy?

How could a man of such brilliance, who creates such visually stunning pieces of art, who can seemingly do no wrong, allow the likes of Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz to write for the soundtrack of his latest creation, Alice in Wonderland? We may never know, but it happened. The pair have written one song so far, and may do more if time permits. They claim that the song sounds nothing like either of their bands, but it's hard to imagine the eyeliner-clad emo duo producing anything other than what their generic brand of radio ga-ga already sounds like. Honestly, Tim. We love you and your art. Why muddle it up with these clowns?
