FallOutBoyFall Out Boy is an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois, formed in 2001. The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley. The members originally played in local underground hardcore bands before forming Fall Out Boy. With Pete Wentz as the band’s primary lyricist and Patrick Stump as the primary composer, Fall Out Boy broke out of the underground music scene and reached mainstream success with their major label album From Under the Cork Tree. Released in 2005 as the follow-up to their 2003 debut Take This to Your Grave, the album won several awards and achieved double platinum status after selling more than 2.7 million albums in the United States, spawning top ten singles “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” and “Dance, Dance“.

In 2007, Fall Out Boy released their third album Infinity on High, to major chart success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 and selling 260,000 copies in its first week, with top five chartings worldwide. It contained the hits “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” and “Thnks fr th Mmrs“. The group released Folie à Deux in 2008 and further evolved their musical palette. The group announced an indefinite hiatus in late 2009, stating that they had not broken up, rather that the members were taking a rest and engaging in various side projects. Stump released a solo album called Soul Punk in 2011, Wentz formed Black Cards, while Hurley and Trohman formed The Damned Things and then respectively moved onto With Knives and Enabler. Fall Out Boy was ranked the 93rd Best Artist of the 2000–10 decade by Billboard. On February 4, 2013, Fall Out Boy announced their comeback with a new album, Save Rock and Roll, as well as a tour and a new single. The album sold 154,000 units in its first week to become the band’s second No. 1 album, with the top 15 lead single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” preceding it.
