Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy first emerged in the early 00's as the first emo-pop band of their kind. From the Chicago area, they started polluting our airways with their grungy pop-rock music which managed to sell them over 4 million albums and produce a hatful of top 40 hits.

Their underground star status was fuelled by the look and feel, with member Pete Wentz becoming something of an emo icon - he even got his own clothing line out of it, falling into fame by dating the popular Ashlee Simpson of that time.

Later albums became more difficult and significantly tougher to write as time went on. The band took a more prominent break between 2012 and 2015, but are now back to their best with their latest studio album "American Beauty/American Psycho".


  • Take This to Your Grave (2003) - Their debut album for Island Records
  • From Under the Cork Tree (2005) - Their biggest, featuring "Dance, Dance" & "Sugar We're Goin Down"
  • Infinity on High (2007) - 260,000 copies sold in week 1!
  • Folie a Deux (2008) - Pete Wentz features lyrically a lot!
  • Save Rock and Roll (2012) - UK and US #1
  • American Beauty/American Psycho (2015) - A rebirth for the band
