1. A Chicago-based band whose sound is characterized by crunchy metallic riffs
and by stop-start rhythms, as well as sometimes cheeky, sometimes emotional lyrics.
Could be (and often is) described as part of the modern pop-punk emo
movement, though it has to be noted they are far more rock-oriented and electrically charged than self-admittedly emo bands such as Dashboard Confessional
Started out fairly indie
but has since gained a huge mainstream "pop" audience.
Biggest hits include: Sugar We're Going Down, Dance Dance
Similar bands include: Funeral For A Friend
, Panic! at the Disco
2. In the popular TV show The Simpsons
, Fallout Boy is superhero Radioactive Man's sidekick.
