Ok lets get this straight k Fall Ot boy isnt emo at all k emo bands include Taking back Sunday and Hawthorne heights (by the way im not emo)they arent very punk at best they are pop punk i myself label them as pop-punk or Pop Rock.

since there is no dispute fall out boy is Popish.
Im not trying to rip on FOB i myself listen to them. But yea there old stuff kix there new stuff's ass.

Best songs: Homesick at Spacecamp, Dead on Arrival, Saturday, and Sending Postcards from a plane.
New FOB listener: Sugar were goin down RULES
Me: WRONG. Ok you MTV scum if you truly like FOB listen to there old stuff.
New FOB listener: But i cant watch the videos on MTV
Me: FU*K r u stupid god stuff on MTV isnt music k? GO BUY TAKE THIS TO YOUR GRAVE then you can LISTEN to old Fall Out Boy.
New FOB listener: Yes master

Listen to fall out boy before "Sugar, we're going down" and you'll see that they are not emo and they are not like EVERY other pop rock band.

patrick is an amazing singer,
the bands music just doesnt show it off that much.
if you listen to patrick sing "almost like being in love" then you'll se what i mean.
he is an amazing singer.
and andy hurley is an AMAZING drummer. not only does he have great technical skill, but he has passion.

joe trohman is an awesome guitarist.
listen to him play "beat it" and you'll see what i mean.

its easy to play bass in a pop rock band, so its impossible to judge pete on that. but he DOES write amazing lyrics. and their not whiny and "emo". technically, their "emotional", but what lyrics arent? all good lyrics have to do with emotion, whether happiness, sadness, madness, or whatever. and they are amazing lyrics. they use tons of literary devices like metaphors, alliteration, and all that. they are like poetry.

and if you listen to them live on tv, they will sound horrible. thats seriously just the sucky recording quality. and they did have lives before MTV. if anything, they were even better and more respected before MTV. MTV ruined their careers and their reputations by playing only 2 or 3 of their songs constantly, causing people to call them "sell outs". when in reality, THEY didnt sell themselves out, MTV did. mtv is the cause of all that. mtv and the teenybopper girls who watch mtv.

these days its true that some of the fans are those teeny bopper girls, which is once again mtv's fault. but there is still a HUGE portion of fob fans who are not brainwashed by mtv into liking them, and liked them BEFORE mtv.

dont call me a poser and dont say i have shitty taste in music. because i liked fob when they began, before they even played a crowd of 100 people, so i'm NOT one of those poser teeny-bopper mtv obsessed little girls.

if you think they suck, listen to take this to your grave and ALL of from under the cork tree, not just sugar we're going down. then tell me what you think.

and see them in concert. its worth it.
dumbass who has nothing better to do but to bash good music:"fall out boy sucks! their a bunch of posers!"
sane smart person: "no you dumbass, they dont suck. their amazing. actually listen to the music and dont just pay attention to what mtv is portraying them as, you bigot cunt!"

A really crappy punk pop emo band that is most known for stealing their name from The Simpsons character Fall Out Boy. ( sidekick to Radioactive Man.)

Most known by emo kids who watch to much MTV and think it's cool to have their hair long and dyed black.
(also see faggy emo)
hey have you heard the new fall out boy song?
NO! cause i'm not gay!

A band.
Genre is often argued but I would say pop/rock. Not punk or emo or just pop or just rock. Okay?
Consists of Patrick Stump, vocalist and rythm guitar. Can't play guitar very well (and I'm a fan) but although often sings lyrics indecipherally ('that a word?) has a good voice.
Frontman, Pete Wentz. Yes, he gets all the attention, he's the frontman, yes, he can't play bass very well and yes, it is the teenybopper fans who crush on him but I don't know many FOB-teenybopper-fans.
Andy Hurley, drummer and political activist. Currently writing a comic book with his friend. Now, how cool is that? I'll answer for us all: Very.
Joe Trohman, guitarist and owner of rockin' jewfro. Creator of 'Trohmania' and is rather artistic, in my opinion.
Girl 1: Oh my gawd, Fall Out Boy are so cool! You see they're this emo band and-
Girl 2:A-ha!
Girl 1: Like 'Take On Me'?
Girl 2: No, like that's a common misconception, they are not an 'emo band'. Emo is very different, both great genres.
Girl 1: You lost me.
Boy: I've heard they don't play well live.
Girs 1 & 2: We heard that, too.

A totally awesome, not-emo band that needs your support! Right as we speak, My Chemical Romance (a completely emo band, no matter WHAT they say!) fans are slowly but silently outnumbering Fall Out Boy fans! So listen to a few songs of Fall Out Boy's and ENJOY!
Members of Fall Out Boy:

Pete Wentz (bassist/vocals&SOOO HOT!)

Patrick Stump (a cute guitarist/vocals, lead singer)

Joe Trohman (guitarist who does amazing spins)

Andy Hurley (vegan drummer)

A band. A good one. Ok, so the lead singer cannot sing to save his life, and is so ugly that the bassist has to front the band, but actually who gives a crap? They make half-decent music which appeals to and reaches a great number of people.

People hate on them because they 'sold out', which is a fair comment because the music from their second album is way different from the material on the first, but w/ever. If you don't like them, don't listen to them. But just shup up and leave them to it.

Also Pete Wentz is the hot sex. kthnx
