"Dead on Arrival" is a song by the American rock band Fall Out Boy and the first single from their 2003 debut full-length album Take This to Your Grave. It was released on blue 7" vinyl by Fueled by Ramen. The song was also included on a Kerrang! compilation CD. It is the band's first single.

Additionally, the song is playable in the game Rock Band.[1]

Music video

The music video was made up from various clips of the band performing live and travelling around the U.S. to small venue shows. The band said that the song was supposed to show that they were homesick. Jack Marin (former Cute Is What We Aim For bassist) can be seen for a short period of time in the crowd. The police in the video were The Arlington Heights Police Department and had the show shut down, but Fall Out Boy apologized to them, and thanked them for being in their video. One of the venues in the video is the Knights of Columbus Hall in Arlington Heights, Illinois, where the band regularly played to a small local audience in their early days.

"Dead on Arrival" is the first track on Fall Out Boy's first compilation album entitled Believers Never Die - Greatest Hits, which was released on November 17, 2009.
