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.


"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."

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?"

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

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!

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.

Founded in 2000 this band did not start out on top. With the newest album at the moment (from under the cork tree)there sound is different that it has been in the past.
usually Fall out boy's songs have a awesome title like our Lawyer made us change the name of this song so we wouldn't get sued.

Fall Out Boy is commonly mistaken for an emo band, but in fact, they are not. They are mainstream/pop/punk, and are sometimes called emo because they look slightly emo.
Fall Out Boy ain't emo.
