The new album of American rock band Fall Out Boy has a song called Uma Thurman. The band has now clarified that they have taken permission from the Kill Bill actor. Pete Wentz, the band's bassist, was quoted as saying: "We had the tracks done, and we were playing them to people, and people kept saying, 'Oh, Pulp Fiction' or, 'Oh, Dick Dale.' That's what they thought the sampling of the Munsters theme sounded like. Like this surfy guitar idea ... Because of that, we were like, why don't we write something that's in the Quentin Tarantino world? And then the Uma Thurman melody idea came up. We were like, 'OK, now we'll reach out to Uma and see if she's down with us doing this, because otherwise we're going to have to go back to the drawing board and figure it out."
However, despite asking permission, Wentz isn't sure whether Thurman is a fan of the track. "I don't know how she really feels about the song, but she's okay about naming it Uma Thurman, which is cool," he added.
