Fall Out Boy is an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois, formed in 2001. The band consists of vocalist, guitarist and composer Patrick Stump, bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley. The band released five studio albums from 2003–2008. The group announced an indefinite hiatus in late 2009 asserting that it has not broken up, rather that the members are taking a rest and engaging in various side projects. Fall Out Boy was ranked the 93rd Best Artist of the 2000–10 decade by Billboard.[2]

With Pete Wentz as the band's primary lyricist and Patrick Stump as the primary composer, Fall Out Boy broke out of the underground music scene and reached mainstream success with their major label debut, From Under the Cork Tree. Released in 2005 as the follow-up to their 2003 effort Take This to Your Grave, the album won several awards and achieved double platinum status after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the United States. It spawned two top ten hits: the double platinum certified lead single "Sugar, We're Goin Down" which reached number eight on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the platinum "Dance, Dance". The group headlined tours around the world in 2005 and 2006 to support their record. In 2007, Fall Out Boy released their follow-up album, Infinity on High, to major chart success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 and selling 260,000 copies in its first week, with top five chartings worldwide. Infinity contained the hits "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" and "Thnks fr th Mmrs".

The group released Folie à Deux in 2008 and further evolved their musical pallete. Fall Out Boy announced an indefinite hiatus in late 2009, leading to breakup rumors. Since then, Stump explained that Fall Out Boy never broke up and are simply "on a break" while the members work on other projects[3] and commented that "Fall Out Boy is just not planning anything right now. I would be very, very surprised if we don’t do another record again". With the release of their 2009 greatest hits album, 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."[4]

The members of Fall Out Boy have pursued various side projects during the band's hiatus. Singer and guitarist Patrick Stump announced his solo project in January 2010, and released his debut full-length studio album, Soul Punk, on October 18, 2011. Preceding it is an extended play titled Truant Wave. Guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley formed The Damned Things, a heavy metal supergroup with members from Anthrax and Every Time I Die, and have released their debut album, Ironiclast (2010). Bassist Pete Wentz started an experimental/electropop band called Black Cards with lead singer Bebe Rexha and the group have been working on their debut album.

History

Early years (2001–2002)

Fall Out Boy was formed in early 2001 by friends Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman, who had played in various hardcore punk bands in the Chicago area. Inspired by bands they grew up listening to, such as Green Day, Descendents, and The Smiths, the pair decided to start their own band.[5] Trohman met high schooler Patrick Stump in a Borders Bookstore.[6] Stump introduced himself to Trohman when he overheard him talking about the band Neurosis, in which they shared a mutual interest.[6] Stump auditioned as a drummer, but the discovery of his impressive vocal range led to his placement as the lead vocalist.[7] Ben Rose was the drummer for the band's first line-up although he shortly left. Several line-up changes in the rhythm guitar and drumming positions would follow before drummer Andy Hurley joined, with three of the four founding members the current members.

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",[6][8] a reference to the sidekick of the Radioactive Man from The Simpsons[5][9] (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 Project Rocket / Fall Out Boy split EP with Project Rocket, on the small independent label Uprising Records. The group released a mini-LP, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, on Uprising in 2003.[10] The album was recorded in two days and was not supposed to be released. During this period the band played small shows as part of the indie rock underground Chicago music scene, before any mainstream success.

Independent success (2003–2004)

Following the release of their mini-album, the band saw a lineup change with the addition of Andy Hurley (formerly of Racetraitor) on drums and Stump switching to guitar, forming the current four-piece band. During this time, the band often played local shows at The Knights of Columbus Hall in Arlington Heights, Illinois, the site of their "Dead on Arrival" video.[11] The same year, after signing to Fueled by Ramen, they released their first full-length album and second studio effort, Take This to Your Grave, on May 6, 2003. To record a proper debut, the band received an advance from major label Island Records which came with a right of first refusal for Island on Fall Out Boy's next album.[12] 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 the producer.[12] The album has been credited with earning the band's first significant fan base, as well as some minor commercial success.

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 across the country, the album sold very well and was eventually certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of 500,000 copies,[13] but only after the success of the band's next album, From Under the Cork Tree.

In mid-2003, the band signed with major label Island Records which is a part of the mainstream label Island Def Jam Music Group, along with Def Jam Records. This was after the group picked up the option for their next album. In the meantime of recording their mainstream debut, the band released the acoustic EP/DVD My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue through Fueled by Ramen on May 18, 2004. It debuted at No. 153 on the Billboard 200, the band's first entry on the chart.[14] The two-disc set included more acoustic performances and a fan photo gallery.[10]

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

With bassist Pete Wentz as the band's primary lyricist, and vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump the primary composer, from the underground music scene Fall Out Boy rose to mainstream success with their Island major label album, From Under the Cork Tree.[10] Released on May 3, 2005, it debuted on the US Billboard 200 at No. 9, selling over 68,000 copies in its first week. It marked a lengthy stay of 77 weeks on the charts, logging 19 weeks in the top 20. The album achieved great commercial success and was certified double platinum after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the United States alone, and it has sold over three million copies worldwide, making it the band's best-selling album.[15]

From Under the Cork Tree was bolstered by the hit lead single "Sugar, We're Goin Down" which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 6 on the defunct Billboard Pop 100. The song spent five weeks in the top 10 and logged 20 weeks in the top 20. Receiving heavy airplay rotation at both Pop and Alternative stations, it charted at No. 3 on the Modern Rock Charts[16] and exposed the band to a new, mainstream audience via the radio and internet. It was a mainstay on the Hot 100, spending 42 weeks on the chart before it was retired. The music video reached number one 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 song has sold over two million copies and is certified double platinum by the RIAA.[17][18] The band was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2006 Grammy Awards.

The second single released from the album, "Dance, Dance", became Fall Out Boy's second top 10 single when it peaked at No. 9 on the Hot 100 and stayed in the top 20 for 14 weeks. It reached No. 6 on the Pop 100, becoming the band's highest charting single in terms of airplay when it reached No. 2 on the Modern Rock Charts.[16] It contributed to Fall Out Boy's breakthrough mainstream success through heavy radio play. The music video for the song premiered on TRL on October 11, 2005; it soon also reached number one and was later retired on January 17, 2006. The third and last single commissioned from 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 No. 65 on the Hot 100[16] and hit the top position twice on TRL, retiring on June 6, 2006.

In support of From Under the Cork Tree, Fall Out Boy headlined extensive tours around the world and performed at music festivals in 2005 and 2006, including the third 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.[19] 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.[20]

Infinity on High, Live in Phoenix and continued success (2007)

After taking a two month long break following the band’s Black Clouds and Underdogs tour in promotion of their 2005 album From Under the Cork Tree, Fall Out Boy returned to the studio to begin work on their follow-up effort.[21] The band began writing songs for the new album while touring, and intended to quickly make a new album in order to keep momentum in the wake of their breakthrough success.[22] In early 2007, Fall Out Boy released their fourth studio album, Infinity on High, as their second release on major label Island. The album marked a departure in Fall Out Boy’s sound in which the band implemented a diverse array of musical styles. As reported by Billboard, Fall Out Boy "drifts further from its hardcore punk roots to write increasingly accessible pop tunes," a slight departure from the group's previous more pop punk sound predominant on their 2003 effort, Take This to Your Grave.[23] Infinity's first week was a major success and was the band's biggest selling week, selling 260,000 copies to debut at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200.[24][25] This was nearly 200,000 more than their prior album sold in its first and biggest week. It was the group's first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and second top 10. The album spent its first six weeks in the top 10 out of a total of 52 weeks, being the band's highest charting, although From Under the Cork Tree for 26 weeks longer. The album also charted at atop on other Billboard charts, including Rock Albums, Digital Albums and Tastemaker Albums. Internationally it was Fall Out Boy's first album to chart worldwide; it also reached pole position in New Zealand, No. 2 in Canadia, No. 4 in Australia and charted all over Europe to place at No. 8 on Billboard's European Albums chart.[26] This charting was spurred by the lead single "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", which reached No. 2 in both the US and UK as well as the top five in many other countries. Wentz commented on the band's decision to pick the song as the first single, saying "There may be other songs on the record that would be bigger radio hits, but this one had the right message."[27] "Thnks fr th Mmrs", the second single peaked just outside the top 10 at No. 11 on the strength of sales and popular radio play, and went on to sell over two million copies in the US.[28] It found its greatest success in Australia where it charted at No. 3.

In 2007, Fall Out Boy placed at No. 9 in the Top Selling Digital Artists chart with 4,423,000 digital tracks sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[29] The group won many awards and received various nominations as a band and for their singles. Among many awards, Fall Out Boy won the 2007 MTV award for "Best Group" and a Teen Choice Award in the same category. The second single "Thnks fr th Mmrs" won a Teen Choice Award and a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award in the "Single" category. "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" earned a Kerrang! Award for "Best Video". Although the third single ""The Take Over, the Breaks Over"" failed to chart in the US, it won a MuchMusic Video Award for "People's Choice: Favorite International Video".

Fall Out Boy then headlined the 2007 Honda Civic Tour to promote the album. Though the tour was initially postponed due to personal issues,[30] it would take place with +44, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is... and Paul Wall as supporting acts. The band also headlined the Young Wild Things Tour, an international arena tour featuring Gym Class Heroes, Plain White T's and Cute Is What We Aim For.[31]

A CD and DVD of live material recorded during a June 22, 2007, concert at Phoenix's Cricket Wireless Pavilion, a date of the Honda Civic Tour, 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 guitarist.[32] The song premiered for the first time on Wentz's site Friends or Enemies,[33] and was released as a single on March 25, 2008. Following its release, it debuted at No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at No. 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 be 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.[34]

Folie à Deux (2008–2009)

On December 16, 2008, the band released their fifth studio album, Folie à Deux, as a follow-up to their 2007 effort Infinity on High. Fall Out Boy further evolved their sound and took a new musical direction for the record. Folie debuted and peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 150,000 units. The album was certified gold for shipments of 500,000 copies, but commercially performed less than stellar in comparison to Infinity on High. The band collaborated with an extensive list of guest artists including Elvis Costello, Lil Wayne, Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Alex DeLeon of The Cab, William Beckett of The Academy Is..., Debbie Harry of Blondie, and Pharrell Williams.

The lead single preceding the album, "I Don't Care", was released on September 3, 2008 to iTunes, and was No. 68 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.[35] Receiving much less radio play and interest than the band's prior hit single releases ("Sugar, We're Goin Down", "Dance, Dance", "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race") from previous albums, "I Don't Care" peaked at No. 21 on the Hot 100. The second single to receive radio play was "America's Suitehearts", released on December 8, 2008.

In January 2009, Fall Out Boy announced they would embark on the Believers Never Die Tour Part Deux Tour with supporting acts All Time Low, Hey Monday, Cobra Starship, Metro Station and 50 Cent and 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.[36] They also played for TV performances, including the 2009 Toyota Concert Series on the Today Show on May 22.[37]

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 supporting acts for Blink-182's summer reunion tour in 2009[38] and it is the band's last tour before hiatus.

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

Fall Out Boy released a greatest hits compilation album titled Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits on November 17, 2009 soon after their tour as the opening act for Blink-182's summer reunion ended. It includes all the band's songs previously released as singles as well as two new songs and two rarities. One of the new songs is the full version of "Alpha Dog", which was released as the first and only single. It was 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,[39] features two skeletons hugging; a reference to the skeletons found outside of Mantua, Italy who were found buried together while locked in an embrace.[40] 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". The band has not broken up, but are instead on an indefinite break, "decompressing" as Wentz stated it.[41]

Patrick Stump cleared up rumours of Fall Out Boy breaking up. “I was doing an interview, and I said, ‘For the purposes of this interview, I’m not in Fall Out Boy.’ What I meant was: Right now, let’s not talk about Fall Out Boy,” Stump told Chicago Sun-Times in March 2011. “I underestimated the power of the pull quote. It was not said in a negative way. The guy was just starting to ask in-depth questions about the band, and I just said I’m not promoting them right now. It turned into ‘I quit.’” “The Internet has no barometer for sarcasm,” Stump said. “People flipped out. It was blown way out of proportion. There is absolutely no acrimony between us. I personally still talk to all three of them twice to three times a week. Fall Out Boy is just not planning anything right now. I would be very, very surprised if we don’t do another record again.”[42] On his Tumblr he wrote, "I am confident that we’ll have a record out sooner than later but there are currently no plans, no “2 years,” no “6 years,” no parameters. It might happen later than any of that, it might happen sooner. It is literally, as it’s always been, an indefinite hiatus. We never did breakup, we’re still friends, and we still would like to make music together [...] I’ll see all of you if/when the band works on a new record or tour. Until then though, I’m just gonna shut up about it and focus on Soul Punk and hopefully ongoing tour."[43]

Side projects

After the announcement of the band's hiatus, Fall Out Boy members moved on to musical side projects that they could not do with Fall Out Boy. Guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley teamed up with Keith Buckley and Josh Newton from Every Time I Die, Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano from Anthrax and David Karon to form the heavy metal supergroup The Damned Things.[44] The band released their debut album Ironiclast in December 2010. Hurley also plays in the hardcore band Burning Empires,[45] as well as a bunch of other bands. He continues to work on his record label, Fuck City.[46]

In 2010, Patrick Stump began producing his debut solo album, titled Soul Punk[47] and released it on October 18, 2011. He has released a remix of an album track called "This City" to iTunes as the album's first single and created a music video for it. During his production of Soul Punk, Stump released his debut 6-song EP titled Truant Wave as a digital download to iTunes on 22 February 2011 as he delayed his album's tentative February 2011 release date as he scrapped his finished album to rebuild it around the song "This City" that he wrote at the eleventh hour. Soul Punk features no guest musicians as Stump is doing absolutely everything on it by himself: performing, composing all the music, penning all the lyrics, playing all the instruments and producing the album entirely by himself and he made it a mission statement. He considers the album a "big, convoluted way to get me to play drums again, because I really just miss playing drums"[48] and Fall Out Boy's hiatus gave him the opportunity to work on a solo project, as he has been writing songs all his life. Stump has toured in the U.S. and Europe in support of it and his upcoming album. He played his second US tour (first full-headline tour) which began on August 3, 2011 and has performed at music festivals Lollapalooza in Chicago and Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. His solo work is a major musical departure from the pop punk sound of Fall Out Boy. His influences by artists including Michael Jackson and Prince are evident through his soulful electronic sound, which he has described as "smart pop."

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.[49] The band plan to release their debut album in 2011. He also continues to manage his clothing label, Clandestine Industries, record label, Decaydance Records, film production company and two bars in Chicago and Barcelona. Wentz also acts as spokesperson of UNICEF's Tap Project, a fundraising project that helps bring clean drinking water to people worldwide.[50] 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."[50] Many demos have been released on YouTube. On February 8, 2011, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz filed for divorce from Wentz, citing "irreconcilable differences."[51][52][53]

Musical style

While widely considered to be a pop punk band,[54][55][56] Fall Out Boy has also been described as pop rock[57] and emo[58] 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."[59] 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".[60]

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.[61] 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,[61][62] 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"). R&B influences on Infinity on High are on songs such as "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" and two of the album's tracks are produced by R&B singer/producer Babyface. On Folie à Deux, Fall Out Boy continues to evolve their sound, with less of a pop punk sound and 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"[63] 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."[64]
