Centuries was one the best-loved pop/rock songs of the last year and Fall Out Boy's biggest hit to date. This two-measure pattern is heard throughout most of the song with plenty of variation to keep things interesting. As you can see, the second measure is identical to the first except for an extra bass drum note placed on the 'e of 3'. This small variation gives the pattern a longer cycle, making it seem less repetitive.
