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 Myspaces for the next few months.

Examples:

"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.
Girl: "OMG i loove Fall Out Boy, 'Sugar We're Going Down' is the anthem of my lifeeee"
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."

1: Fall Out Boy are a band from Chicago, made up of four members... Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Andrew Hurley and Joe Trohman. Due to certain lines in the songs, they are considered EMO (by people who need to be shot), but they are actually NOT. They are critised alot for Patrick Stump's lead vocals, apparently, being "horrible" and "hard to understand". The answer to this is, of course, get your fucking ears cleaned out because if TONS of people can hear what the hell he says, why cant YOU?

2: A fact that is NOT known to many people, is that Fall Out Boy actually had a LIFE before MTV. And It was not up to the band to have hundreds of stupid airheaded girls constantly asking for their music videos to be played on MTV due to the fact that "Peter is so HAWT!!!" If you are going to blame somebody in that situation, blame MTV. Or better, the stupid airheaded girls.
1: Sugar We're Going Down: (before your ears get cleaned out) Wee goh in DAH DAH in ah earlieeh rauh! Shu gah wee goh in dah swing ih!

Sugar We're Going Down: (AFTER your ears get cleaned out) We're going down, down, in an earlier round. Sugar, we're goin down swingin.

2: Bimbo: OmmGzz! Petah from Fall Out Boy is So0o0o HawwwTT!
Sensible human being: Stop checking out the members, and listen to the fucking music, you dumbass. And by the way, its PETER!!!

a band. if you like them fine, if you don't, fine. personally i don't and i've heard some songs, i'm not pulling that opinion out of my ass, like some of these retards. and they're not punk/emo. they are pop. most of the bashing retards wouldn't know emo if it stabbed them in the eye. emo is just another form of punk, not a bunch of pussies in girls' pants slitting they're wrists. i don't know what those tools are. and no need to be homophobic. you can express your hate for something without being a bigot. saying nothing but "gay", "fag", "queer" makes you look like a stupid, homophobic, asshole with no vocabulary, who therefore shouldn't be taken seriously. I've had to thumb down quite a few otherwise valid and funny defintions for being homophobic. not cool.
FanGirl:"OMG! LyKe.....FOB is so0o pUnk RaWk!"
Me:"No, not quite."
Homophobic Asshat:"Fuck Fag Out Boy! Emo faggots and they're gay ass shitty emo music!!"
Me:"Have you even heard 1 Fall Out Boy's of songs?"
Asshat:"Fuck no! I'm not listening to that queer fag crap."
Me:"So, how do you know they suck? Is it because most of their fans are girls? So, just because something is liked by girls it's worthless? Wow, a homophobe AND a misogynst!"
Asshat:"Miso-what? Whatever. Fuck emo fags."
Me: "Define emo."
Asshat:"...It's....those whiny little fags in girls' pants and makeup who.."
Me: "Wrong, tool. Why don't you go learn stuff for yourself instead of accpeting what MTV tells ou it is. I thought you didn't watch MTV?"

1. Radioactive Man's sidekick on "The Simpsons".
2. The wrong way to spell the name of the Chicago band, "Fall Out Boy". Usually mispelled by haters and posers.
Fallout boy is actually played by Milhouse!

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.

A band that everyone seems to think only has the fan base of young emo kids. BOLLOCKS! Fall Out Boy have had a huge fan base since wayyyyy before Sugar We're Goin Down got them into the charts. Just cos a load of kids jumped on the band-wagon doesn't mean that this is their target audience. And if some of these kids actually listened to their lyrics they'd realise they're not an emo band anyway
fall out boy lyrics: Dance Dance we're falling apart to half time - not particularly emo eh?

ok this is really starting to piss me off.
FOB did exist before MTV. 13 year old poser girls did not listen to them before MTV. they're not emo. they're not hot. but their music is beast. so go pop in an older cd and listen to them. REALLY listen to them, don't just hear the crapass poser shit on the radio.

A (now) mainstream four-piece band categorized as pop punk, pop rock, emo, or combinations of the three. Known for their nasal vocalist, simplistic guitar riffs, basslines consisting of no more than four notes which cannot even be successfully played at a live show, and "poetic" lyrics such as "WE'RE GOIN" DOWN, DOWN, ENALURBLYURAAHLL...", it's no surprise that Fall Out Boy is one of the most popular rock acts today, particularly among 14-21 year old females and males confused about their orientation.

Fall Out Boy differs from similar bands in that their bassist acts as (or tries to act as) the frontman of the group, without singing or adequately playing his instrument. Though he ranks as the least talented member of the band, Pete Wentz garners most of the group's media attention, being the only 6 while surrounded by 3's and 4's. Pete also writes the "brilliant lyrics" indecipherably crooned by singer Patrick Stump. In an attempt to appear quirky and clever, titles of Fall Out Boy songs are usually a sentence long. The exposure of Wentz' genitalia is irrelevent and was likely brought to the media forefront by the band itself as a failed publicity stunt.

Taking note of the band's lack of... everything, it is a mystery how Fall Out Boy is successfully marketed. There are no timeless hooks, no particularly attractive band members to get the teenyboppers riled up, nothing instrumentally impressive or innovative, and nothing that hasn't been done before several times (and with less ego) by Blink 182 or even Simple Plan. The success of Fall Out Boy remains an enigma, as well as a trademark of the tastelessness of teenage youth and anyone who refers to themself as emo.
Fall Out Boy is MySpace on the radio.
