Fall Out Boy takes a Hike
The reports surfaced when band members twitted that the dream was over, sending emo-kids into a frenzied state of panic. Bassist Pete Wentz is busy with his life as Ashlee Simpson's bitch, and frontman Patrick Stump is working on a solo album.
Fall Out Boy raised from relative obscurity, to jump to the top of the Billboard charts. I remember going to a Fall Out Boy show(yes, I was a fan)and they were lucky to have 100 kids in the crowd. Three years later, they are selling out arenas, and large concert venues.
Their first major record was 2003's "Take this to your Grave," which is still a really solid pop record in the vain of bands like New Found Glory and Blink 182.
Shortly after that record, the band blew up into the stratosphere, with the 2005 record, "From Under the Cork Tree."
However, the rest of their catalog isn't my cup of tea, but the two aforementioned records are still guilty pleasures of mine.
I have a feeling that Fall Out Boy will be back in the future, their royalty money can't last forever.
