Fall Out Boy is my growing-up band. We go together like headphones and an iPod Shuffle. I've loved them since fifth grade, ever since I got a radio in my room. They've grown and matured at almost the same rate as a band as I have a person, and I can't thank them more for that. Their style isn't even really a style. It's a goal to make everyone feel like they're not alone.
In terms of words, they are all twisted humor, sarcasm and a tiny percent of really sad songs that don't fit in with the rest, but you love them and know they're there. In every album they're there.
The first song I heard was Sugar, We're Goin Down, and after hearing it a few times, I thought the words were the weirdest song lyrics ever, and the lead singer's voice was so funny, I think I eventually had to look them up on YouTube. That's where I'm pretty sure my love for them started, and I recognized whenever they were on the radio.
A few years later, I was at my friend's house and the radio was on, turned to My Songs Know What You Did and when I walked into her room she was singing along to it. From then on it's been "our band" and most of our fights have been over it, but at the foundations, we get along because of some really great friends and Fall Out Boy.

It's something about the way the sounds all seem fit together. It's something about the way the lyrics seem to always go straight through me. It's something about how the songs effect me more than the songs of other bands. It's something about the message they put out there. It's something about their attitude. It's something about how there's not a single song of theirs I don't like. It's something about the way they aren't afraid to be themselves.
Their name is a play on works from a Steve Martin stand up back in the 80's. That's the beginning of this band that's been rocking since 1994. What was once a group of high school friends rocking out in garages, it now a group of old men rocking out in a studio.
No messy band break ups, no needless drama.
Just good friends making good music drinking good beer.
Songs about high school, friends, getting drunk, or soured relationships, there is something for everybody. Even a love song to the lead's wife entitled "Here's Your Freakin' Song".
Their songs are meant to make you laugh, to get someone through a bad day.
As they say, "Don't hate us cause we're happy."
With awesome radio tunes like "Girl All The Bad Guys Want", "Punk Rock 101", or the infamous hit "1985", the band has had several fan favorite such as "Life After Lisa".
An underrated band that everyone should check out at least once.
......... They are NOT the band that did "Stacy's Mom"...... but they did cover it.
