    Fall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley. The band originated from Chicago's hardcore punk scene, with which Wentz was heavily involved. The group was formed by Wentz and Trohman as a pop punk side project of their respective hardcore bands, and Stump joined shortly thereafter. The group went through a succession of drummers before landing Hurley and recording their debut album, Take This to Your Grave (2003). The album became an underground success and helped the band gain a dedicated fanbase through heavy touring, as well as some moderate commercial success.

    Bump.

    So, "Youre Crashing, But Youre No Wave" is the best FOB song right.

    Whaaaaat no way. That song gets a lot of hate but idk if I'd call it their best.

    "Alpha Dog" and "(Coffees For Closers)" would be some other candidates

    This is my first hearing of that song getting any hate at all. Damn

    Folie a Deux has a legitimate claim to the best album this whole scene has ever produced.

    That is all.

    At least we all agree that's the gold medal FOB album, right?

    Right?

    Seems like a lot of fans hate it but that's the case with a lot of their material past FUTCT.

    Yeah Folie is definitely up there. That album and the "b-sides" were great. Pretty sure "Alpha Dog" and "From Now On We're Enemies" were from those sessions

    What are some others you think might have that claim? Just curious. I think TDAG and Clarity are a given. CTTM also.

    "The (Shipped) Gold Standard" is my favorite FOB song. I also never realized people didn't like that one.

    TDAG, Everything in Transit, Commit This to Memory, As Tall As Lions, Here Here and Here, Chase This Light, The Listening, probably a bunch I'm forgetting.

    Some of those picks would definitely be more popular than others. Haha

    I've never heard As Tall As Lions or Here Here and Here. Need to fix that I guess

    Yeah a lot of the TTTYG/FUTCT fans hate pretty much everything after those. I've seen that one and "(Coffees For Closers)" get a lot of hate which is baffling

    Much more niche choices. As evidence by the fact that neither band lasted long. But damn do I love those two records

    Reclusive-Aggressive Prestigious

    yeah i can see that. listening to the ATAL record now and damn, excellent album so far. Soaring vocals and some great guitar and piano. Kind of get a bit of a Death Cab vibe.

    Their first two albums are unreal. A lot of people love their third, too, but that one always left me a bit cold.

    Band that ended far too early. Singer has a second life as a pop songwriter though, with Sky Ferriera and a bunch of big names.

    Aw man that makes me really happy that you're loving it, man. Makes sharing so much more fun.

    "Ghost of York" could be the best song of their career, if "Acrobat" didn't exist on the debut

    Yeah nothing quite like introducing someone to an album they love or discovering a new album to love. This shit is stellar

    That's the dragon you chase while racking up 50k posts on a music site. Those moments where you can introduce someone to something they love or vice versa.

    I have given FAD so many chances. It's a trainwreck of an album. There are some fantastic songs on it. But there are a lot of issues with sequencing and flow of the album with some bad songs mixed in.

    Don't recreate the scene, or reinvent the meanings Supporter

    Yeah, I think I am with Greg on FAD. I don't dislike it, but it's definitely not my favorite FOB record.

    It's A Secret To Everyone Prestigious

    i've grown to appreciate FAD so much more with time. there are still tracks i don't care for overall, but it's a great album. wish they'd play something off it other than I Don't Care tho.
    I heard they played Disloyal Order on this tour recently!!
