"Why 'Fun.' with a period?"
"Because 'Fun' regular was taken by a Swedish death metal band."

Here's to hoping the song Some Nights explodes. I personally find it way catchier than We Are Young, but that 4:37 run time could potentially hinder it. Im sure we'll get a radio edit though.

I would imagine that a radio edit is going to happen since they need to remove "fuck" from it before it can get airplay at the least. Maybe they'll trim it a bit while they're at it. I definitely agree that it's better than We Are Young. That and Carry On blow it out of the water, in my opinion.
