The Fall Out Boy Story, Part 2: The Mainstream Breakthrough


To say Take This To Your Grave sold better than expected would be an understatement, 200-300k copies sold for a small band nobody really knew about prior to 2003 is HUGE, especially considering they were signed to Fueled By Ramen at the time which was not nearly as big as they are today. So they decided to sign with Island for their 2nd record as they seemed to be outgrowing their old label and work for their 2nd album was in ... read more

Death Of An Optimist is exactly what the title suggests, an embrace of pessimism for all the edgelords in the world to worship and oh boy is it just as insufferable as it sounds, if not more so.

Although on the surface this is framed as a fight between his positive and negative side, the way it’s actually written makes it seem like the whole thing is closer to *well I “tried” to be positive but oh well we’re all gonna die and life is dogshit and fuck everything and ... read more

Weezer making super cheesy glam rock inspired music that plays on 80s nostalgia is the best direction they could have taken at this point.

Song feels more like an album track than a single but oh well it's still really fun to listen too so idc.

I've been avoiding this band like the plague for a long time and now that I've heard them, can I just go back to a few hours ago when I had yet to listen to this thing?

This band seems to be one of those where all of it's issues seem to also be their appeal. They rely heavily on technical complexity and... that's it, song structure, songwriting, vocals, everything but the technical complexity of the playing, not important, mainly an afterthought for this band apparently.

They have a unique ... read more

Look, I can’t tell you it’s great, because it’s not really. But I can tell you it’s a step forward. I never thought this band’s issues ever had anything to do with them sounding like Led Zeppelin or Rush or whatever other band they’re “ripping off” because...is Led Zeppelin making new music? or Rush? No, so let them make their music. Who cares, nobody acts like this shit is groundbreaking...But man this fucking band.

They take themselves WAY too ... read more

Some albums just aren’t worth hearing because they’re boring. This is one of em.

Another week, another rock band embarrassing themselves, nothing new. And I can already tell people are gonna call this Father of all 2.0 but with FOAMF at least it felt like Green Day were having fun, no it wasn’t good but that was at least one positive I could give it. This just feels tired and like the band didn’t have enough material for a whole album and that’s why there’s ... read more

Hey, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :)).

Life's too short and I'm too young to pretend like I don't love all the shit that clearly panders to me.
