The pop rock movement really took hold during the last decade. From 2000 to 2009, the pop rock scene became flooded with countless music acts. One of the bands that managed to set itself apart during that turbulent era of music was Fall Out Boy. The pop rock quartet from Illinois became one of the breakout artists of the decade. They rose from indie darlings to chart toppers during that decade, and they left a trail of massive hits in their wake. Whether people loved them or not, there was no doubt that Fall Out Boy became one of the signature bands of the last decade.
Just as with many other bands of the rock persuasion, Fall Out Boy came from very humble beginnings. The members of the band originally played with lesser known outfits before they ever joined forces. The members did the indie circuit while playing with other bands and it was not until the year 2001 that the band finally came together. The lineup consisted of Patrick Stump on vocals and guitar, Pete Wentz on vocals and bass, Joe Trohman on guitars, and Andy Hurley on drums. Pete and Patrick took creative lead for the band, with Pete handling the lyricist duties and Patrick on composer duty. Fall Out Boy became the darling of the indie scene, but it was only a matter of time before they would eventually hit the big time.
The band actually came out with a few albums before they ever hit the big time in 2005. Some of them were mini albums and they only released one full-length album, “Take This to Your Grave”, before finally releasing the widely successful “From Under the Cork Tree”. The massive success of this album came to define the early part of the band’s career. The album contained three singles that managed to register on the Billboard Hot 100 list. “Sugar, We’re Going Down” was the album’s lead single and it gained the band popularity on the mainstream scene. Following the heels of their first mainstream hit, the band released “Dance, Dance” to nearly similar success. After their two releases became mainstream successes, the band sought to strike it rich a third time, and they were successful to a degree as “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More Touch Me” also managed to make it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart, though not to the same level as the previous two singles.
Since their fateful second album, the band has received a mixed bag of commercial success along with fan disdain. Despite the negative reception of a few indie die-hards, the band still managed to record several very successful albums. The band announced an indefinite hiatus back in 2009, and the members immediately pursued projects of their own. None of their individual pursuits could truly match the Fall Out Boy’s commercial success and as of February 2013, the band is now officially back together. The reunion of the band is going to be commemorated with a release of a new album as well as a tour.
