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. noun: band of tossers; horrible vocals to horrible 'music' provided by lead singer who constantly sounds like he is nursing a very bad cold and thus cannot be understood by many (except perhaps those in the masses who don't care because OMG LYK FALL OUT BOY TOTALLY ROCKZZZZ!!!11111ONEONE)
Fall Out Boy should fall out a window and die.

Sell-Out

A band that was actually pretty good, then got to main stream and now are sell-outs.

Pre sell-out, mainstream, actually good Fall Out Boy songs: Pretty in Punk, Tell Mick He Just Made My List of Things to do Today, Dead on Arrival, Homesick at Spacecamp. (Anything from 03-04 really)

Mid Sell-Out/Mainstream music: anything from "From Under the Cork Tree"

Total Sell-Out/Mainstream music:07-present
Take a look kids. Look at what MTV does to pretty good bands (like Fall Out Boy). They milk them for everything they got for money. Then they just toss them out when they got nothing left.

Thanks MTV! For ruining music!

A new age band that has attracted it's main audience of the ages 13-20. The band originated in Chicago, and consists of their lead singer/ guitarist, Patrick Stumph ( who has dropped the "h" in his last name due to pronunciation), their bassist, Pete(peter) Wentz, drummer, Andy Hurley, and lead guitarist, Joe(joseph) Trohman. Many teenagers idolize and respect them and their lyrics. Fall Out Boy is in the rock, pop crowd. They play many secret shows in Chicago. Fall Out Boy has also been recognized as the best musical group for many awards. They weren't exactly good at finding names for their band, so at one show they played when they were up and rising, they asked their audience for suggestions, and a fan yelled out Fall Out Boy, and the name stuck. Fall Out Boy's bassist, Peter Wentz has also founded the new band, Panic! At The Disco. Fall Out Boy has been recognized as the hardcore, partying group that will be remembered after they have been long gone, and even when they pass, they will rock the heavens!
Fall Out Boy has been known for it's most popular songs such as, Sugar we're going down, Thanks for the memories, and Dance dance!

a horrible disease that millions of teenage americans suffer from.

the FOB virus is airborne, one is contaminated with this virus as soon as they hear any pop fall out boy song.

symptoms include include a significant change in sexuality and wardrobe such as : guys wearing mascara and eyeliner while wearing flourescent colored "Youth Small" sized DC shoes shirts, ripped up pants and having a weird haircut with bangs that cover half your face.
we must stop the Fall out boy virus with DEATH METAL, the antidote.
