A band formed in Chicago. Currently their members are Patrick Stump
(rythm guitar, vocals, music composer), Joe Trohman
(guitar), Andy Hurley
(drums), and Pete Wentz
(second vocals, bass, and lyric composer). Theyre name is usually shortened to FOB. Their name comes from Fallout Boy, which was screamed to them when they asked for possible band names. Fallout Boy
Their discography include:
Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend (2002)
Take This to Your Grave (2003), Gold
From Under the Cork Tree (2005), Platinum (x3)
Infinity on High (2007), Platinum
As for their media attention, Joe + Andy get 5% of it, Patrick 25%-40%, Pete all the rest... even you can note this in their videos, as, whos the protagonist of Dance, Dance; who gets to be Blade on A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More "Touch Me", who gets to die in This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race, or who gets to kiss the girl (she was hot...) on Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.
They have good musci though. Even after being labeled emo, most people that label them this way don't know shit 'bout emo. It's called Pop-punk, dummasses
, or just Alternative. The vocals are unique, though not great, even, nasal sometimes, and unable to be recognized sometimes. The lyricsare sometimes lame, sometimes they carry meaning, like the lyrics from 7 Minutes to Heaven, which talk about Pete's suicide attempt/OD.
They have links with The Academy Is...
, Cobra Starship
(Gabe Saporta is better than FOB, 75% of the time), Gym Class Heroes
, and Panic! At the Disco
; and are now signed with Fueled by Ramen (along with all the bands I mentioned).
Dumass: FUcking dimwitts, Fall Out Boy sucks, cuz they are emo.
Brain-gifted person:What's emo?
Brain-gifted person:ok... What's dimwit?
Dumass:... I dont know...
Brain-gifted person:they shut up, grow a self opinion, and for Pete's sake, buy yourself a dictionary.
Originally the sidekick to Radioactive Man in the Radioactive Man comic series on the Simpsons. In the film version of Radioactive Man (starring Ranier Wolfcastle) Milhouse was cast in the role of Fallout Boy.
Bart: Well, between us we've read all 814 issues of "Radioactive Man."
Milhouse: Yeah, and we both have the special limited-edition issue where he and Fall out Boy get killed on every page!
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.
1. Did you check out Fall Out Boy's new CD?
2. "Radioactive man, look out!" screamed Fallout Boy.
A highly overrated pop punk band. Often the band of choice for 13-15 year old girls. Consists of typical whiny emo-ish lyrics. See also My Chemical Romance
OMG FALL OUT BOY IS DA BEST!!!
Actual Quote of Teenage Girl
The name is derived from the television show, The Simpsons
, Fallout Boy is the young sidekick to the Superhero, Radioactive Man. Like Robin is to Batman.
The band Fall Out Boy is currently(2005-06) very popular. However, they give what is quite possibly the worst live performance of any major record label band currently out.
The guitarist and bassist insist on being in constant motion while on stage, including jumping in 360's, getting on top of amps, and jumping off of stage platforms, even though they are physically incapable of continuing to play correctly while doing so. The lead singer/second guitarist can neither sing, nor play guitar well, much less perform both tasks at the same time. This produces a stage sound and presence which is highly unnatractive, and very unpleasant to the ear.
Their songs are pop-driven, somewhat simple, yet varied, and feature many catch phrases that will be branded all over your friends' AIM
profiles and Myspace
s for the next few months.
"Drop a heart, break a name"
"I'm just a notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in this song"
"Sugar, we're going down"
"We'r always siffee ee eida sefehh fodah roongg teeee"
As the last quote demonstrates, most of their lyrics, even on the studio tracks, are indiscernible to the common person's ear. But not ...
Fall Out Boy is a Chicago based band, that actually had a life before MTV
It has four members; Pete Wentz
, Patrick Stump
, Joe Trohman
and Andy Hurley
For those of you who think Fall Out Boy are emo posers
; they aren't. They aren't even emo, and, like I said, had a life before MTV. It's MTV that made them so popular, along with some air headed teenage girls
, who only listen to them because 'PeTe Iz SoOoOoO hAwT!!!!!11'.
Oh, and by the way, there is no 'Tom' in Fall Out Boy. On the From Under The Cork Tree
album, some tracks were mixed by Tom Lord-Alge
, which could be the cause of this misconception of the invisible 'Tom'.
Air Head : OMG, LIEK PETE FROM FALL OUT BOY IZ SOOO HAWT!!!!!1
Normal person : Air is leaking out.
Pretty much the gayest band ever. All they sing about is how their girlfriends dumped them or how life sucks. Also they lack musical talent. The lead singer can't keep a tune, his voice is that of a pubescent 12 year. I honestly think his voice cracked 98 times during dance dance. Also the instrumentals are horrible. Why, oh, why, do those losesrs buy expensive gibson sg's, fender p bass' and tama drums if alls they do is play some power chords layered with a beginners bass riff and a simple drum beat, then add the horrible vocals. Honestly, I could drag nails over a chalk board and sound better them.
Fallout boy is honestly the worst band ever, in my opinion, in 12 years everyone will forget about them and they'll be sitting in the streets of chicago begging for money.
Fallout boy fan: O my god you loser face!!! your just jealous cause your music hasnt been good since the 80's
No, but i do know music when i hear it, and fallout boy fits more in the category of a steaming pile of shit.
Here's an actual defenition, not JUST an opinion
A band from chicago formed around 2001. It consists of pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Andrew Hurley, Joe Trohman. They are not I REAPEAT NOT, and emo band(see the get up kids for some). If anything someone could call them Pop-punk. In my opinion a very good band who's fans actually go deeper than what most of you think. Fall Out Boy did exist before they were on TRL, therefore their fans existed before TRL and thefore do not consist only of 13 year old girls who love guys in gril pants.
Catchy guitar riffs and unique vocals make their music better than anything you and your crappy yamaha bass could put out.
Urban dictiony person:Fall Out Boy is SOOOO Emo.
Actual intelligent Fall Out Boy Fan:You Fucking Idiot, no they aren't, listen to the lyrics you dumbfuck.
