An overrated "emo" band that only got famous because they hail from the NORTH SHORE (an area of chicago suburbs that is predominantly occupied by bitchy white rich snobs. Trust me, I live there - or you could just watch Mean Girls).

NORTH SHORE = MONEY = RECORD DEAL. Go figure.
Fall Out Boy (lyrics from "Growing Up"): Glenview never meant a thing to me
She never meant a thing to me
Except for putting idealists in a body bag

Fall Out Boy are a Pop-punk band favoured by teenage females and males who prefer soft rock and alternative rather to the harder type.They introduced a different yet controversial approach to soft rock in their from under the cork tree album. They are fairly talented, innovative and very contreversial. Their music is not emo(read the lyrics) and their lyrics are often hard to discern but when read are found to be of a very good quality, many of their USA fans are females for the reason that lotz of guyz in the us wont admit they like softrock, but in other countries they are widely accepted as a very talented bands by both genders, i am a male and i testify to that. As to those who belive u have to be a sissy or a poser emo to listen to fall out boy, you are sadly mistaken for many fall out fans such as myself h8 emos cuz their just shadows of the goths and if u met me ud certainly know im not a sissy but personally i can c the point of view of these people even though fall out boy are my fav bandm, 2 be able to have an unbiased point of view u should try listrening 2 all types of rock from metal to indie than u might realize how great they are. But all in all they're a gr8 band, though their first two albums are too soft the other 3 are a gr8 band with unique style and gr8 literary content
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 is Radioactiveman's sidekick.
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?
Dumass:eh...
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.

A living hell for the ears.
Fall Out Boy reminds me of a thousand chalkboards being scratched at once in to a megaphone.

An American rock band formed in 2001. After going on hiatus for a few years from 2010 - 2012, they returned with a massive breakthrough in their new album titled Save Rock and Roll. Although the band has received mixed reviews on this album, the majority seem to adore the album (and the others miss the 'old' Fall Out Boy)

For some reason, unintelligent beings seem to think of the fans of this outstanding band to be 'emo' which is absolutely ridiculous, considering they are first and foremost now a punk rock/pop rock band who produce amazing, real music that one can actually listen to without shaving their ears off. Other bands that are similar include Green Day and Panic! At the Disco. Although, in utter honesty, there is not a band as good in their genre as Fall Out Boy.

Their talented members are Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz (Peter Wentz), Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley.
"I can't stop listening to the new Fall Out Boy album! It's so good!"

A band that plays punk-rock music. They are often called fags because their bassist and lyricist , Pete Wentz, wears guyliner. Many people, mostly girls ages 14-18, believe that Pete Wentz is the hottest thing to hit the planet since pet rocks, although, without makeup, he is not particularly attractive. Their vocalist, composer, and backup singer is Patrick Stump, their guitarist is Joe Trohman, and their drummer is Andy Hurley. Thier first hit was Sugar, We're Going Down, shortly followed by Dance, Dance, and, most recently, Thnks Fr Th Mmrs. They are often called emo, which is partly true, depending on your definition of emo, because some of Fall Out Boy's songs contain suicidal themes and screamo. This band, for some reason that I cannot comprehend, inspires both extreme hatred and extreme idolization in great multitudes of people, who never actually pay attention to a band's music, only about their friends saying they are gay or talking about how hot Pete Wentz is. They forget to actually listen, or have their own opinion. Mine, however, is that Fall Out Boy is a good band. I like their music, and I believe that they have never changed their values to satisfy people they don't care about, is a huge acomplishment for anyone, celebrity or not.
Dude 1:"Wow, fall out boy sucks. Dance, dance is probably the worst song I've ever heard.

Girl 1: "I like it."

Dude 1: "Whatever"
