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."

A terrible band that somehow managed to hop on the gravy train that MTV rides around the country while making crappy shows. They are led by a singer who sounds like he has a mouth full of marbles and a paper sack on his head, some idiot who jumps off of things and forgets to play his instrument because he has actually figured out he has no talent and might as well still try to have fun while not looking like a fool (he fails at that), and a few other members who are of no noteworthy talent.

While anyone with even a drop of taste in music will dismiss them as anything more than garbage, many people have been fooled by the obvious voice and sound enhancements that are used to make their CDs worth anything more than cup coasters. These people, are of course, the same people who believe Lindsay Lohan, The Blackeyed Peas, Outkast, and some other singers who fall into this talentless dumpster are good.

They are 95% religiously defended by girls who follow whatever is trendy but have no opinion of their own, and the 5% of guys who put up with the crappy music in order to get in said girls' pants. (just check out the names of those that defend them on this site, almost all girls)
Friend 1 : Wow, I just experienced the worst thing ever in my life...
Mr. Bruce : And that would be?
Friend 1 : Fall Out Boy. *begins to vomit bucket loads*
Mr. Bruce : I'll call 9-1-1 right away!

Friend 2 : Hey Bruce! I just got that Fall Out Boy cd my girlfriend has been telling me about and it rocks!.
Mr. Bruce : *right eye twitches as he tries to comprehend what he just heard*
Ex-Friend 2 : Yah, We're gonafa derrdowww ddOWWWgw inga aeari *is silenced abruptly by a fist to the mouth*
Ex-Friend 2's Girlfriend : I can't believe you hit him for loving such an aweso... *is also silenced by a fist*

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 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.

Teenybopper girls (99 % of the people who like them) tell me that they're not emo and that they're punk(true story). First things first, THEY ARE NOT PUNK!!! Punk is The Ramones, Blondie, Sex Pistols, and The Germs, etc. They ARE, in fact, sell outs. And they ARE a bit emo.
Fall Out Boy Lyrics:
"Get off my ass and call you"
Obviously talking about a past relationship which means emo.

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.

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!"
