Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy is an American pop-punk band that, at the time they gained popularity in the early 2000s, were dubbed the spokesmen of emo teens everywhere. However, their sound has changed over the years, and their songs tend to be wildly popular because of their upbeat tempos and amusing lyrics. It’s difficult for even the most cynical of people to deny the appeal of ridiculously catchy songs like ‘Dance, Dance’ and ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark.’ We suspect that they owe much of their success to the fact that their discography consists entirely of earworms - songs that weasel their way into your brain and get stuck there for indeterminate lengths of time. The band is also notorious for their clever use of puns and wordplay in the titles of their songs, most of which have little or nothing to do with the songs themselves. Much to the chagrin of fans, the band members went on hiatus in 2010 to pursue solo careers, but returned in 2013 with an album as catchy as ever.
