About Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy formed out of boredom in a suburban Chicago basement in 2001. Despite bassist Pete Wentz describing himself as "a procrastinating underachiever at heart" and drummer Andy often drawing comparisons to the Muppet "Animal", the group has managed to achieve worldwide success.
The band, whose music style is described as emo, pop-punk, indie-rock, finally took shape when they met guitarist/vocalist Patrick Stump. They won several awards for their debut album, From Under the Cork Tree. The album achieved double platinum status and sold over 2.5 million albums in the US alone.Their latest album, Infinity on High, released in February 2007, sold 260,000 copies in its first week.
The band was nameless for their first two shows. During their second show, they asked the audience to call out their suggestions for a name. One suggestion was Fallout Boy, Radioactiveman's sidekick in The Simpsons.
