"The Take Over, the Breaks Over", (rendered with quotation marks as part of its title on the album track listing, so as to read ""The Take Over, the Breaks Over"") is the fourth single and second track from Fall Out Boy's album Infinity on High. Its title was taken from Jay-Z's 2001 song "Takeover". The song found its greatest success in Australia, peaking at #17 on the singles chart there. The song won a People's Choice Award for best video.
The song features two guitar solos performed by guest guitarists Ryan Ross (formerly from Panic at the Disco) and Chad Gilbert (from New Found Glory).
The song is featured on the Nintendo DS game, Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades.

Music video

The video begins with Hemingway (Pete's dog), who is lying with Pete on his couch. The camera zooms into his mind (which, as it is doing so, is set to some of Fall Out Boy's earlier songs such as "Grand Theft Autumn / Where Is Your Boy" and "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race") to where the band is performing the song. As they sing the chorus, strange things begin to happen such as Patrick growing a steak body and a cat head, along with breakdancing mailmen and cat ladies appearing. Through the guitar solo, an angry mob appears and blames the band for changing (a reference to the band's changing genre from a more punk rock sound to a more pop rock/pop-punk sound as stated on many blogs and fan sites on the web) and they start throwing objects at the band and harassing them. Hemingway then comes in and tells the mob "C'mon guys, give the boys a break; everyone changes. Look at me, I used to be tiny." (which is ironic because the lyrics at the beginning of the song are "baby seasons change but people don't") The fans then agree and the band continues to play as the fans, the breakdancing mailmen and cat ladies all dance along. Suddenly, someone falls, knocking Hemingway out of his dream and jumping off the couch, ending the video. The music video is in grayscale. The video was filmed in one day with Alex Wolff from the Naked Brothers Band playing the young Pete Wentz seen at the beginning of the music video.
