Fall Out Boy Biography


Pete Wentz who was the bandˇ¦s bassist and back up singer is also famous for his marriage to Ashley Simpson. The lead vocalist was Patrick Stump. Joe Trohman was the lead guitarist and Andy Hurley was the drummer. Fall Out Boy was formed in 2001 when Pete, a experienced former vocalist for Arma Angelus (metalcore band) started to write songs just for fun with his friend Joe Trohman.

When they put out a demo in 2002, immediately record labels from the east to west coast were interested.

Fall Out Boy became very popular in 2005 with its debut, From Under the Cork Tree. The album won several awards including a double platinum status after selling more than 2.5 million US albums. They went on to tour in 2005 and 2006. In 2007 the band released Infinity on High to major chart success, reaching #1 on the Billboard 200. The lead single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", reached #1 on the Pop 100 and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The band has been described as having a very eclectically creativity. For example, in their albums Take This To Your Grave and From Under The Cork Tree are both said to have pop punk as well as punk rock sounds and influences, and Infinity on High has a wide range of styles and instruments, including orchestral and choral arrangements. The band has also teamed up with various producers and artists, including The Neptunes, Timbaland, Lil' Wayne and Kanye West. Even after the band took a break, their memberˇ¦s creativity did not stop. Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley started to work with Every Time I Die and Anthrax to create a metal supergroup called The Damned Things. ˇ@

Many consider Fall Out Boy to be a pop punk or Emo Band. Pete has mentioned the emo group The Get Up Kids to be an critical influence on their music. Pete is also the bands main lyricist since he has had much angst growing up and trying to find his place in the world. It has given him a unique view in life in which he expresses through in lyrics using irony and other literary techniques. It is no wonder he can relate to emo music.

When he was growing up, Pete felt like everyone was having so many expectations of him that he didnˇ¦t know who he was anymore as he tried to fit all these roles on. That was probably why he was particularly inspired by a childrenˇ¦s book called ˇ§The Story of Ferdinandˇ¨ by Munro Leaf. The story was about a giant bull who loved to sit under a cork tree and smell flowers instead of getting into the ring and fighting a bullfighter as he was expected to do.

Finding himself was a long path for Pete as he dealt with Bipolar disorder and fought with depressive/suicidal thoughts. In his own words ˇV "It's so hard to think about and understand. I'm not making an argument for being a disturbed genius; I was a confused kid. I felt like I was Pete Wentz for everybody else, and I didn't have Pete Wentz to turn to." Sometimes carrying a gift requires great strength, and we are certainly grateful that Pete Wentz was able to manage his own to give us such great music to rock to!
