Fall Out Boy
How They Started
Fall Out Boy Started out in Willmette, Illinois. Willmete is just outside of Chicago, so they just say that's where they started.
Joe Trohman and Pete Wentz were the co-founders of the band.
Their First Album
Fall Out boy's first album was Evening Out with Your Girlfriend. They don't really like it. When making it, most of the songs were written and created within two days.
Take This To Your Grave
The album cover photo was taken in the small apartment they shared, and the album was released May 6, 2003.
Fall Out Boy's Sophomore album From Under The Cork Tree was released in 2005 and had multiple hit songs on it like "Sugar We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance" which rocketed them to major success.
Infinity On High was released on February 5, 2007. The lyrics were, as it had always been, written mainly by Pete and the music was mostly composed by Patrick. The band drifted a bit from their "genre", using things such as R&B, Soul, and Flamenco music. they used instruments like horns, violins, and pianos which they hadn't previously used. They also featured people like Jay-Z and and Babyface on the album.
The band didn't want to release Evening Out With Your Girlfriend at all, but it did, and in 2005, after their album From Under The cork Tree, Uprising Records released a remastered issue of the album without the bands consent and the band didnt get anything from it
My Heart Will Always be
the b-side to My Tongue.
It was released on May 8, 2004, and was an EP, not a full album.
The CD came with a special bonus DVD, which told about the bands history, had two music videos, and an acoustic performance.
Sugar We're Going Down was #9 on the Billboard Top 100 for two weeks.

The album was in the top 20 for 14 weeks.

Four of the songs on the album had been released as singles, including "This Ain't A Scene Its An Armsrace" which reached #2 on Billboard.

Folie A Deux
From Under The Cork Tree
Infinity ON HIgh
Folie a deux means a mental illness, normally delusions and hallucinations, that ends up being shared by two people because they're very close.
There were many people who either loved or hated the album, and the band got a lot of hate from those who didn't like it, saying they had "changed" and were "sellouts" and more of stuff like that.
It was released on December 8. 2008, after they changed the date because of wanting avoid conflicts considering the Presidential election.
The album went to #8 on the Billboard 200

The single fro the album, "I Don't Care" reached #21 on the Billboard Top 100.

After Folie A deux Fall Out Boy went on and indefinite hiatus. ;-;
The Hiatus
On May 27, 2009, Pete Wentz tweeted out, "fob fans whove stuck it out pay attention tonight". Fall Out Boy then went on an "indefinite hiatus". There were so many fans who were crushed and sad at the announcement, and each member soon went into doing their own thing. The band had said they needed a break because they had been with eachother constantly for 8 years and it wasn't like they wanted to hang out and write together anymore, they had to. Others, such as fans and critics put some of the blame on Pete Wentz's ex Ashlee Simpson for causing the hiatus. They secretly created an album "Save Rock and Roll" while denying the fact they were coming back, until they released a picture of the them standing around a fire burning records. Fall Out Boy had come back after four years, on February 4, 2013.
Save Rock ANd Roll
Fall Out Boy's latest album is Save Rock and Roll. They created it entirely in secrecy and denied that they were making it when asked, saying they were still on hiatus at the time.
It has 11 songs, and multiple people featured on the songs.

Elton John does the song Save Rock and Roll with them. 2 Chainz appears in My Songs Know What You Did in The Dark. Big Sean raps on The Mighty Fall. Foxes is featured in Just One Yesterday, and Courtney Love is in the song Rat a Tat.
The entire album has a music video to go with it, creating a series they named as "The Youngblood Chronicles"
