Fall Out Boy is an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois, formed in 2001. The band consists of vocalist-rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump, lead guitarist Joe Trohman, bassist Pete Wentz and drummer Andy Hurley. The band has produced five albums from 2003-2008, and are inactive as of 2009.

With Pete Wentz as the band's primary lyricist and Patrick Stump as the primary composer, Fall Out Boy reached mainstream success with its major label debut, From Under the Cork Tree. Released in 2005, the album won several awards and achieved double platinum status after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the United States alone. To support the album, the band headlined tours around the world in 2005 and 2006. In 2007 the band released the followup Infinity on High to major chart success, reaching #1 on the Billboard 200 and selling 260,000 copies its first week. The lead single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", reached #1 on the Pop 100 and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. On February 2, 2010, the band reportedly broke up although no official press statement was released.[2] Since then, the band has made their status more clear and the indefinite hiatus has been re-confirmed.

Their best selling single was "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race", from the platinum-selling Infinity on High album. More of Fall Out Boy's notable singles are "Thnks fr th Mmrs", "Dance Dance", and "Sugar We're Goin Down".

With the release of their 2009 compilation Believers Never Die - Greatest Hits, and in regard to the legacy of the band, Allmusic senior-editor Stephen T. Erlewine wrote that Fall Out Boy "seems like one of the quintessential mainstream rock singles bands of the 2000s."[3]

HistoryEdit

Early years (2001–2002)Edit

Fall Out Boy was formed in early 2001 by friends Joe Trohman and Pete Wentz, who had played in various hardcore punk bands in the Chicago area. Inspired by other bands they listened to growing up, such as Green Day, Descendents, and The Smiths, the pair decided to start their own band.[4] Trohman met high schooler Patrick Stump in a Borders Bookstore.[5] Stump introduced himself to Trohman when he overheard him talking about the band Neurosis, in which they shared a mutual interest.[5] Stump auditioned as a drummer, but his impressive vocal range led to his placement as the lead vocalist.[6] Two other Chicago musicians were recruited to play drums and guitar.

The band was nameless for their first two shows. They decided that the audience should decide, and at the end of their second show, they asked the audience to yell out their ideas for a name. One audience member suggested "Fallout Boy",[5][7] a reference to the sidekick of the Radioactive Man from The Simpsons[4][8] (which the band performed the closing theme song for in the 2009 episode "Lisa the Drama Queen").

The following year, the band debuted with a self-released demo and followed it up with the May 28, 2002 release of Split EP, which featured Project Rocket, on Uprising Records. The group released a mini-LP, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, on Uprising Records, in 2003.[9]

Independent success (2003–2004)Edit

Following the release of their mini-album, the band saw a lineup change with the addition of Andrew John Hurley (formerly of Racetraitor) on drums, Stump switching to guitar, and the departure of Raccine and Pareskuwicz. During this time, the band often played local shows at The Knights of Columbus Hall in Arlington Heights, Illinois, Illinois, the site of their "Dead on Arrival" video.[10] The same year, after signing to Fueled by Ramen, they released their first full-length album, Take This to Your Grave, on May 6, 2003. To record a proper debut, the band received an advance from Island Records which came with a right of first refusal for Island on Fall Out Boy's next album.[11] With major financing in place, the band recorded Take This to Your Grave at the Butch Vig-owned Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, with Sean O'Keefe as producer.[11]

With singles "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy" and "Saturday" receiving video airplay on FUSE, mtvU and Target's in-store video stream and radio airplay on mainstream stations across the country, the album sold very well and eventually achieved Gold status, but only after the success of the band's next album, From Under the Cork Tree.[12]

In mid-2003, the band signed with Island Records which is a part of the mainstream label Island Def Jam Music Group, along with Def Jam Records. This was after it picked up the option for its next album. In the meantime of recording its mainstream debut, the band released the acoustic EP My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue on Fueled by Ramen, May 18, 2004. It debuted at #153 on the Billboard 200, the band's first such entry on the chart.[13] The two-disc set included more acoustic performances and a fan photo gallery.[9]

From Under the Cork Tree and mainstream success (2005–2006)Edit

With Pete Wentz as the band's primary lyricist, and Patrick Stump the primary composer, Fall Out Boy reached mainstream success with its first major label album on May 3, 2005, From Under the Cork Tree,[9] which debuted on the Billboard 200 at #9, selling over 68,000 copies in its first week. The album achieved double platinum status after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the United States alone.[14]

Their first single, "Sugar We're Goin Down", peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, #6 on the Pop 100, and #3 on the Modern Rock Charts.[15] The video reached #1 on MTV's TRL, where it was retired on August 26, 2005. The video won the MTV2 Award at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards, prompting a huge new interest and surge in sales. The band was also nominated for "Best New Artist" at the 2006 Grammy Awards.

The second single off the album, "Dance Dance", became their second Top 10 Single when it peaked at #9 on the Hot 100. It reached #6 on the Pop 100, becoming the band's highest charting single when it reached #2 on the Modern Rock Charts.[15] "Dance, Dance" is one of Fall Out Boy's best selling singles, hence it is also one of the best known. It also contributed to Fall Out Boy's mainstream success. The music video for the song premiered on TRL on October 11, 2005; it soon reached #1 and was later retired on January 17, 2006. "Dance, Dance" was also featured on the PlayStation 2 version of Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova by Konami.[16] The third single off the album, "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More "Touch Me"", was much less popular than both prior singles, but still managed to peak at #65 on the Hot 100[15] and hit #1 twice on TRL, retiring on June 6, 2006.

The band headlined the Nintendo Fusion Tour in the fall of 2005, joining The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack, Boys Night Out, and Panic! at the Disco on a 31 city tour.[17] Due to its increased success from their MTV Video Music Award, the group headlined the Black Clouds and Underdogs Tour, a pop/punk event that featured The All-American Rejects, Well-Known Secret, Hawthorne Heights, and From First to Last. The tour also featured The Hush Sound for half of the tour and October Fall for half. They played to 53 dates in the US, Canada, and the UK.[18]

Infinity on High, Live in Phoenix and other projects (2007–2008)Edit

In early 2007, the band released its second major label album, Infinity on High. The album had a successful debut week, selling 260,000 copies and nearly 200,000 more than their prior album did in that same time. This amount helped the album debut at number one on the Billboard 200, the band's only #1 charting on the Billboard 200. The album was retired from the Billboard 200 after 51 weeks, being the band's most successful charting, although From Under the Cork Tree charted for 77 weeks, 26 weeks longer. The album also charted at #1 on Rock Albums, #1 on Digital Albums, #1 on Tastemaker Albums, #2 on Canadian Albums, and #8 on European Albums.[19] This charting was spurred by the single "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", which reached #2 in the US and UK. This album, along with their next album, is much more pop-orientated in sound, in contrast with their earlier albums, especially Take This to Your Grave.[20]

Fall Out Boy then headlined the Honda Civic Tour to promote the album. Though the tour was initially postponed due to personal issues,[21] it would take place with +44, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is... and Paul Wall as supporting acts.

A CD and DVD of live material recorded during a June 22, 2007, concert at Phoenix's Cricket Wireless Pavilion was released on April 1, 2008. Of note, the album, simply called Live in Phoenix, contains a new studio recording covering Michael Jackson's "Beat It" with John Mayer as a guest on guitar.[22] The song premiered for the first time on Wentz's site Friends or Enemies,[23] and was released as a single on March 25, 2008. Following its release, it debuted at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #19.

On March 18, Fall Out Boy revealed plans to play a show in Antarctica so they would in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only band to play a concert on all seven continents in less than nine months. However, weather conditions prevented them from flying to Antarctica. The following week, they began making plans for a second attempt.[24]

Fall Out Boy collaborated with rapper T.I. for the album Paper Trail on a track entitled "Out in the Cold",[25] but the song was left out of the final cut. T.I. told MTV that he may add some of the cut tracks to his next album.[26]

Citizens for Our Betterment (2008)Edit

A viral campaign was launched by Pete Wentz on August 18, 2008, to promote what is now known to be the band's fifth studio album Folie à Deux. The campaign started when the website for Decaydance Records was supposedly "hacked" by an organization called "Citizens For Our Betterment" (CFOB).[27] Clues were left in links and images on the website, and Wentz left clues on his personal blog. On August 19, Ashlee Simpson was seen carrying a pamphlet for the organization, raising suspicion and sparking many rumors online.[28] In the days that followed, new posts appeared on the Citizens For Our Betterment website and Wentz continued to blog, at times referring to November 4, the same day as the 2008 U.S. presidential election.[29] Meanwhile, another band, Copeland, launched their own viral campaign. As part of it, they launched a similarly named site, CitizensFourOurBetterment.com, and spread links through various Fall Out Boy fan blogs to attract more people to their own site.[27] While this mixing of campaigns was done without the knowledge of the members of Fall Out Boy, Wentz did post an acknowledgement on August 22, when CFOB again "hijacked" Decaydance Records website.[29] Finally, on August 26, a blog post of a press release was made on the band's FriendsOrEnemies.com page officially announcing Folie à Deux as their upcoming album, due for release on November 4. It also revealed that a mixtape, titled "Welcome to the New Administration", was available for download on the FriendsOrEnemies website.[30] Later the same day, the band made another post featuring a Buzznet video of them announcing the upcoming release of the album and explaining the name.[31]

Folie à Deux (2008–2009)Edit

On December 16, 2008, the band released its fifth studio album, Folie à Deux, as a follow-up to their 2007 album Infinity on High. The band collaborated with other artists such as Elvis Costello, Lil Wayne, Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Doug, Alex DeLeon of The Cab, William Beckett of The Academy Is..., Debbie Harry of Blondie, and Pharrell Williams.

The lead single for the album, "I Don't Care", was released on September 3, 2008, on iTunes, and was number 68 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.[32] The second single to receive radio play was "America's Suitehearts", released on December 8, 2008. Wentz stated the song is about the ongoing Bush administration.

In January 2009 the band announced they would embark on the Believers Never Die Part Deux Tour with Cobra Starship, Metro Station, All Time Low and Hey Monday to support the Folie à Deux release. Its name is based on their 2004 "Believers Never Die Tour". The group also performed alongside Kanye West and Kid Rock at the Youth Ball for the inauguration of President Barack Obama.[33]

On April 27, 2009 an EP was released on iTunes, titled America's Suitehearts: Remixed, Retouched, Rehabbed and Retoxed. It contains a remix from Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus. Fall Out Boy, along with Weezer, were the opening acts for Blink-182's summer reunion tour in 2009.[34]

Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits and indefinite hiatus (2009)Edit

A compilation titled Greatest Hits Believers Never Die - Greatest Hits was released on November 17, 2009. It includes the band's past singles as well as two new songs. One of the new songs was confirmed to be the full version of "Alpha Dog", a track that was previously released as a demo on the Welcome to the New Administration mixtape, and the other "From Now On We're Enemies". The album artwork, created by Daniel Danger,[35] features two skeletons hugging; a reference to the skeletons found outside of Mantua, Italy who were found buried together while locked in an embrace.[36] There are also numerous references to the band's career and previous works.

On November 20, 2009, the four band members announced they will be taking an indefinite hiatus, saying they were unsure of the future of the band. Bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz has said that his personal reason for taking a break is that he feels that his name and marriage to pop singer Ashlee Simpson had become a hindrance for the band. He added: "I think the world needs a little less Pete Wentz".[37]

Unofficial breakup controversy and re-confirmation of indefinite hiatus (2010)Edit

On February 1, 2010, bassist Pete Wentz said on Twitter, "Don't you get it? A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old. I don't plan on either." "I can't imagine playing in FOB again." "Something would have to change in my head or my heart ... not my wallet."[38]

On February 2, 2010, Spin Magazine released an interview they had with lead singer Patrick Stump, who replied to Pete Wentz's tweets by saying, "I'm not in Fall Out Boy right now. But one way or another, the band will always be around...Whether we play again or not, I don't know. If we do, it will be for the right reasons. If we don't, it will also be for the right reasons." Stump also told Spin.com that he was focusing on his upcoming solo career.[39]

Later that day, drummer Andy Hurley simply tweeted, "I quit too." as guitarist Joe Trohman tweeted in reply, "fine, i quit too."[2][40]

Wentz took to his blog to sum it all up saying, "I dont know the future of Fall Out Boy. It's embarrassing to say one thing and then have the future dictate another. As far as I know, Fall Out Boy is on break. (no one wants to say the “h” word). As much as I don't have a solo project, I also can't predict that I'd ever play in Fall Out Boy again, not due to personal relationships as much as a band we grew apart. In this statement I'd like to include there is the possibility that Fall Out Boy will play again with out me or I will be a part of it when everyone is on the same page. It is no ones fault and there is no animosity about the decision. I felt as fans you deserve to know. There is no singular reason for this. The side projects or bands are supported by all members of the band. I am the single biggest fan of fob and if this is our legacy than so be it. I am proud of it."[41]

On February 4, 2010, Wentz tweeted that the band is "in the same place it ever was" and that "there is a chance it'll work out, or not."[42][43] Then later, he tweeted again, saying, "Ok no more fob jokes. We['re] in the exact position we were when we decided to take a break".[42][44]

On February 6, 2010, E! Online reported that Wentz had told them "We're just on a break," and that he is more focused on being a father right now than he is on Fall Out Boy. Pete lastly added, "...I think I'll be OK. It's too soon to say that we'll be back. We just got burned out."[45]

Pete Wentz has also revealed that he has e-mailed lead singer Patrick Stump and that they are still on good terms with each other. Additionally, Wentz stated that he believes the whole event has been "blown out of proportion".[46]

Post–Fall Out Boy projects (2010)Edit

After the announcement of the band's break, Fall Out Boy members moved on to new musical endeavors. Joseph Trohman and Andy Hurley teamed up with Keith Buckley from Every Time I Die, Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano from Anthrax and David Karon to form the heavy metal band The Damned Things.[47] The supergroup released their debut album Ironiclast in December 2010. Hurley also plays in the hardcore band Burning Empires, featuring Matt Mixon of 7 Angels 7 Plagues, and Stuart Ross, Ryan Morgan, and Kyle Johnson of Misery Signals.[48] Hurley will also temporarily act as a live fill in for Dennis Merrick during Earth Crisis' 2010 "The Wrath of Sanity" tours,[49] and continue working on his record label, Fuck City.[50][51]

Patrick Stump began producing his debut solo album, officially confirmed to be called Soul Punk, in January 2010.[52] The album features no guest musicians as Stump plays all of the instruments himself. He considers the album a "big, convoluted way to get me to play drums again, because I really just miss playing drums."[53] The album is expected to be released in February 2011.[54] The music sheet of "Spotlight" was released on Patrick Stump's official website. It currently features two versions of the song, which the public can download for free and vote for their favourite. The most popular song will be put into the album.

In July 2010, Pete Wentz, with singer Bebe Rexha, formed the ska/electropop band Black Cards, a project inspired by a discussion Wentz had with producer Sam Hollander about mashing up ska, dance and reggae with 80s British rock and pop to create a new experimental sound.[55] The band plan to release their debut in early 2011. He also continues his family life with his wife, Ashlee Simpson, and son, Bronx as well as managing his already established clothing label, film production company and two bars in Chicago and Barcelona. More recently, Wentz acts as spokesperson of UNICEF's Tap Project, a fundraising project that helps bring clean drinking water to people worldwide.[56] Wentz has also expressed his interest in working on new music projects, though he hopes to move outside the limitations of the common 4/4 time signature of pop music. Commenting on this, Wentz stated, "I have ideas that extend beyond [a 4/4 time signature] and I guess I scratched a lottery ticket enough that, because of my band, people let me do these (other) ideas, and some of them are good, some of them are not so good."[56]

Musical styleEdit

While widely considered to be a pop punk band,[57][58] Fall Out Boy has been described as emo[59] and cites emo group The Get Up Kids as an influence. When interviewed for a retrospective article in Alternative Press at the time The Get Up Kids disbanded in 2005, Pete Wentz stated that "Fall Out Boy would not be a band if it were not for The Get Up Kids."[60] Early in the band's career, when Jared Logan was producing their debut album, he asked bassist Pete Wentz what sound the band desired for recording. Wentz responded by "handing over the first two New Found Glory records".[61]

A central part of Fall Out Boy's sound is rooted in the band's lyrics, mainly penned by bassist Pete Wentz, who commonly uses irony and other literary devices to narrate personal experience and stories. Their albums Take This to Your Grave and From Under the Cork Tree are both said to have pop punk as well as punk rock sounds and influences, and Infinity on High features a wide range of styles and instrumentation, including orchestral and choral arrangements ("Thnks fr th Mmrs" and "You're Crashing, But You're No Wave") and a slower piano ballad ("Golden"). On Folie à Deux, Fall Out Boy continues to evolve their sound, increasing the use of piano ("What a Catch, Donnie", "Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet", and "20 Dollar Nose Bleed"), synthesizers, and guest artists. The band also shows a number of influences, with the opening track borrowing a chord sequence from The Who song "Baba O'Riley"and "What a Catch, Donnie" referencing Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway in both sound and lyrics.

The band has worked with many producers and artists, including The Neptunes, Timbaland, Lil' Wayne and Kanye West, who Patrick Stump described as "the Prince of his generation."[62] Following the news that Fall Out Boy would be taking a break, Rock Sound revealed that Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley have teamed up with members of Every Time I Die and Anthrax to create a metal supergroup called The Damned Things.[63]
