While anyone with even a drop of taste in music will dismiss them as anything more than garbage, many people have been fooled by the obvious voice and sound enhancements that are used to make their CDs worth anything more than cup coasters. These people, are of course, the same people who believe Lindsay Lohan, The Blackeyed Peas, Outkast, and some other singers who fall into this talentless dumpster are good.
They are 95% religiously defended by girls who follow whatever is trendy but have no opinion of their own, and the 5% of guys who put up with the crappy music in order to get in said girls' pants. (just check out the names of those that defend them on this site, almost all girls)
Mr. Bruce : And that would be?
Friend 1 : Fall Out Boy. *begins to vomit bucket loads*
Mr. Bruce : I'll call 9-1-1 right away!
Friend 2 : Hey Bruce! I just got that Fall Out Boy cd my girlfriend has been telling me about and it rocks!.
Mr. Bruce : *right eye twitches as he tries to comprehend what he just heard*
Ex-Friend 2 : Yah, We're gonafa derrdowww ddOWWWgw inga aeari *is silenced abruptly by a fist to the mouth*
Ex-Friend 2's Girlfriend : I can't believe you hit him for loving such an aweso... *is also silenced by a fist*
Milhouse: Yeah, and we both have the special limited-edition issue where he and Fall out Boy get killed on every page!
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.
2. "Radioactive man, look out!" screamed Fallout Boy.
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'.
Normal person : Air is leaking out.
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 Myspaces 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 the 8th and 9th grade girls. They can mysteriously hear all of the lyrics and find great, deep meanings in them.
Guy: "I think we need to break up"
Girl: *sad face* "I'm just a notch in your bedpost, aren't i?"
Guy: "Yeah, seriously, we're not even going to be friends anymore."
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.
Actual intelligent Fall Out Boy Fan:You Fucking Idiot, no they aren't, listen to the lyrics you dumbfuck.
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.
