Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy formed in Chicago out of the ashes of different hardcore bands. Wentz grew up with Trohman and had previously played in a band with Hurley, so when their other groups imploded, the three got together to jam. Soon after they bumped into Stump, whose melodic, but edgy vocals were a perfect fit. But even after the ingredients were in place, the musicians had no lofty career ambitions. “We just wanted to do something different with no intention of it ever becoming anything,” Wentz says. “We didn’t even have a name until after our second show, when we played some college and asked the crowd what we should be called and someone screamed out ‘Fall Out Boy.’”

Being from the Midwest instead of somewhere like Los Angeles or New York, the odds were against them from the start, which only made them try harder. Fortunately, by being removed from any major scene, they could develop organically without outside pressure, which has helped turn them into the band they are today. With lineup and name secured, Fall Out Boy recorded a three song demo, which they sent to every record label they could think of. They attracted the attention of numerous companies, but eventually signed with fledgling label Fueled by Ramen for their debut, Take This to Your Grave, which sold over 200,000 copies. “We decided to sign to Fueled by Ramen because it was a long shot, and Fall Out Boy is a long shot,” Wentz says. “It turned out to be the best decision we’ve ever made.”

For their big break into the mainstream, they joined forces with Island Records, which will help them reconnect with their core fans while reaching an entirely new audience.
“With this record, we’ve got a bigger focus and a grander idea,” Wentz says. “We don’t want to disappoint the 200,000 people who are part of a very cult following that hangs onto our every word, and we won’t. But we wrote this record for all the people who haven't heard of Fall Out Boy before. When George Lucas did “Return of the Jedi,” he wanted it to appeal to the person who saw “Star Wars,” but at the same time, if somebody wasn't born when that came out, they can still go see the movie and have it be a very exciting thing for them. That’s the kind of thing we want to achieve.”
