In 25 years, people will be copying FOB, trying to "reinvent" themselves.

Posted by Cassie on Monday, 08.21.06 @ 17:48pm


NO!!!!!!!!

Posted by me on Saturday, 10.21.06 @ 17:04pm


God lets hope not. or welcome to the "Pop punk crap" hall of fame in which I hope to god black sabbath will be removed

Posted by No. on Saturday, 01.6.07 @ 19:03pm


No. I respect peoples musical opinion but think about it. Why?

Posted by ... on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 17:37pm


I laugh at people who think today's pop-punk bands are "emo."

I don't know who first started misusing that word, but it has to stop.

Posted by William on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 17:38pm




Oh men no!!!!!
this guys sucks!!!!

Posted by Naxo on Sunday, 02.18.07 @ 09:31am


these guys will be around to make atleast 3 more incredible albums, selling millions each, respected for years to come, how do they NOT make the hall of fame? some of you people are lame because a good band actually made it big, deal with it babies.

Posted by shutup on Monday, 03.12.07 @ 14:33pm


No talent. They dont belong here. Theyre garbage, and sound like every other band trying to make it big.

Posted by Maggie on Monday, 03.12.07 @ 21:15pm


Ultimately, whether you like them or not, they are the biggest rock band RIGHT NOW. Not ever, but right now. They are the model for the "every other band" that sounds the same. They sound like Fall Out Boy. They are influential whether you like them or not, you can't deny that.

Posted by Kaylee on Tuesday, 03.13.07 @ 21:04pm


You guys are forgetting the whole point of the hall of fame. Did they do anything innovating? And who is the real anchor of the pop punk movement? Not Fall Out Boy, but Green Day...specifically. Of course, 2027 is a long time from now so FOB still has some time to do something, but from the current batch of pop punk, MCR is probably the better choice right now.

fall out boy, if they last, stands an ok chance. they just beat out aerosmith for biggest jump in a single since the 80's. they're new cd went platinum in like 2-3 weeks. crazy insane.

there are a lot of people hating on these guys right now and most of them only know what they have heard on the radio or read in magazines. the truth is they are easy to hate, but the music will be judged and when it comes down to it, they are the best band around right now, thier music is constantly fresh, i can still listen to "take this to your grave" and think wow these guys are great. its easy to hate what you dont understand. i personally think those who hate it havent taken the time to find out why they hate it. its just too easy...challenge yourself people

Posted by bobby vega on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 12:38pm


Who the HELL do you guys think you are?!?!?!?!?! #### everybody who is disssin' Fall Out Boy!!! these guys are the best thing that ever happened to me! they are the top dogs right now! all the commercials on tv are all about them! They play by their own rules! They're HOT right now, AND forever! and if anybody dissagrees with me than they can just #### off!!!

Posted by Michelle on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 12:44pm


You are all idiots. You're not seeing the big picture here. Back in the 60s and 70s there were plenty of people who HATED the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin etc. But how do we see them now? For what they were, influential, talented artists. Now think about Fall Out Boy. As far as talented and musical goes, I'm going to have to count Fall Out Boy out. But you can't deny the fact that they have been the number one band in North America since 2004. As for influence, who's to say? Are you a band from 2027? It would be very hard to draw influence from a band as trite and unoriginal as this, but you have to give credit where credit is due. Set aside your personal opinions, becasue frankly, they don't count for anything. Factor in what matters.

FALL OUT BOY IS LOVE!!!! L-O-V-E LOVE ! THEIR LYRICS ARE AMAZING, and they are all nice guys. They are one of the biggest, best bands ever. Thet really care about their fans, and the music. So i really think they should be in.

they should definetly be in the hall of fame
they have amazing songs and they deserve it!

Posted by <3 on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 13:25pm


Fall Out Boy has had sooooo much influence over the bands today. They totally would deserve induction.

Posted by Kati on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 13:33pm


Ok, I respect everyones opinion to liking these guys, most of my friends do, but this band doesnt deserve to be in the hall of fame. There newer sound has gotten so cocky from "Corktree". Like, they think so many people like them they are Gods. They are way to into themselves, and that is proven by Pete Wentz's pictures, if you have seen them. There old sound was just awful. The only good element in there music is the drumming, which is actually talentful. They arent influential cause they have NOOOO message. They were probably one day like "Hey, we are amazin, lets make a band" and thats how it started. Give it to My Chemical Romance this year who actually have a message and SAVED PEOPLE'S LIVES.

And dont call me an emo f** for wanting them in, I barely like MCR. Im into the punk scene with Bad Religion, Rancid, The Casualties, ect. So Im actually trying to figure out who deserves it in this year.

Posted by Chris Scanlon on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 14:17pm


ahh . . . fall out boyy

was a great band in 2000 until like 2005 when they started showing their videos on mtv!
and all the stupid little teens out there think they are suchh a great band

have you ever seen them live?

yah if you said no believe me your on the right track bcuz FOB sucks majorr ass live

and its pathetic
w.e i say no.

if in twenty years the world remembers fall out boy and draws inspiration from them for music i hate to even think about what shambles creativity will have been reduced to

Posted by holly on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 14:44pm


This a serious question? Hah i guess so. Hell no they shouldnt be in the hall of fame EVER

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 18:12pm


if you think these guys sound 'just like every other band' then obviously you haven't been paying the least amount of attention to the new music scene these day
no these guys are not emo, don't type them by their frontman's looks
they've already become an influence in today's rock/punk/emo/pop music scene and their albums truly blend musical influences in a creative and extremely catchy way
don't hate because they've got mainstream popularity, every once in a while a band comes along that actually deserves the hype
keep watching, bc they'll keep rocking your face off with impressive new stuff

Posted by lily on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 19:52pm


wow you guys rock seriously pete patric and the rest of ya i hope you win but who knows lol you guys rock i come to one of your concerts every year becuse im in lov with your music dont let eneyone get you down there all asswholes

Posted by kayli on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 07:51am


Fall Out Boy Seriously changed my life for the better, any one who hates on them can shove it. what really eerks me is the people that say ohh i respect musical options but y BULL MOTHER ####IN SHIT if u had respect u'd shut ur damn mouth n let people live there lives for them selfs, just cuz u dont like dont mean other people cant

Posted by Meagen on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 09:31am


i don't see why they wouldn't be. they're amazing for the type of music they play, which by the way is NOT emo. Fall Out Boy would be pop punk. they do not have emitional lyrics which is emo! so i say Hell yes the rock!!!

Posted by sara on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 12:40pm


FOB is awesome.they started emo.they truely are amazing.

Posted by Jenny on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 13:17pm


wt the hell r u people talkin about.

DEFINATLY YES!!!!!

Posted by Sarah-Pearl on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 15:43pm


God damn you people are stupid.

Emo is an offshoot of '80s hardcore. The 1980s. The entire movement predates this band and all so-called "emo" bands today. You have never heard any of it. Stop talking about it.

Posted by William on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 15:47pm


I think Fall Out Boy does not deserve a spot in the Rock Hall Of Fame. I'm not saying that I dislike them trust me I have 3 of their albums on my ipod but I just see any reasons why they should. They havent influenced people to do big things. They haven saved anyone lives they're jsut a band from chicago who made it big thanks to teeny boppers. They haven't defind or changed a generation like Nirvana or the Misfits have. I just think that they don't deserve it.

They're not even that great live.

Posted by Kat on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 17:35pm


fallout boy is for lost confused little kids who don't know what real music sounds like... no one will remember who they are in a year or so when this whole emo craze dies out, and people will have move on to an even worse trend...god, people are stupid...

Posted by cky brat on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 18:27pm


YES what kinda question is that you all say my chemical romance deserves it more but my chemical romance has a short amount of good songs but they're some of the best songs ever but fall out boy I love each song a little less than my chemical romance and I like my chemical romance but they have a larger amount of songs that I like but I'm voting both and mmaannyy more

Hell no, they are a pile of crap emo punk wannabe band

Posted by Aaron on Friday, 03.30.07 @ 05:32am


Fall out boy rock and have created a new Music Scene for many bands! and have come to be from great influances!! Green Day,Elvis Costello, Squeeze, Grease, The Cure, Joy Division, Archers of Loaf and more greats , if you don't like it then your just a plain hater of music,yes they can be annoying trust me i know but seriously thies boys have done a great thing for music and changed it up from Rap or hip hop or pop or rock metal "emo" they did something DIFFERENT they combined thire faviorite types and bands to creat thire own! geez people stop being streo-typical and wake up and mix it up cuz i really need some different music then rap or hip hop its just TOO repitive!

Posted by >SOMEONE< on Thursday, 04.5.07 @ 08:59am


Of all the great music out today, why would anyone pick this crap?

Naked Raygun just got back together. Go see why bands like FOB cite them as an influence instead of wasting your money on third-rate pop-punk.

Okay yes some of the fans of older rock may not like Fall Out Boy but they should open thire minds! When Jimmi Hendrix or Pink floyd entered the musice scean , wern't they shuned? Weren't there people who hated them? but look at them now they are big and in the hall of fame with millions of fans! hello people wake up and just wait a bit and fet over your Egos!!!

Posted by >SOMEONE< on Tuesday, 04.10.07 @ 11:14am


Jimi (one 'M') Hendrix and Floyd were fairly well-liked except perhaps by socially conservative people, and they were critical successes, for the most part. FOB is shunned because they're visibly retreading old musical ground and mostly only appeal to the middle class teen demographic, people who can't tell the difference between "substance" and "bad poetry."

Posted by William on Sunday, 05.6.07 @ 00:13am


I laugh at people who think today's pop-punk bands are 'emo.'"

How is it funny that they realize that "pop-punk" and emo are both essentially the same thing and can easily be grouped under the same "talentless homos who were eyeliner and are popular for some inexplicable reason"

Posted by Creepozoid on Thursday, 05.10.07 @ 01:50am


Because it's retarded and wrong. Pop-punk and hardcore punk are very different animals. And get this...All emo bands are hardcore punk bands.

Fall Out Boy is pop-punk, and quite shitty pop-punk at that. Rites of Spring is emo. They sound literally nothing alike.

Now turn off your radio.

Posted by William on Thursday, 05.10.07 @ 19:09pm


It's also worth saying that NO emo band has ever gotten broad mainstream success, so you're pretty much wrong about everything you said. Try again later.

Posted by William on Thursday, 05.10.07 @ 19:10pm


Ok FOB is an amazing band to be completely honest, anyone who says otherwise, obviously is letting their personal feelings towards their pop-punk scene get mixed in with the reality of thier talent.

Honestly, I don't see why everyone says they haven't done anything big....they've been a big band for what...3 years?

Give them some time, seriously, they'll be remembered for a LONG time to come.

Posted by Dylan on Saturday, 06.9.07 @ 09:44am


Of course not, This talentless, uninspired cookie cutter crap band will fade as soon as it's tone-deaf listeners' MTV-induced ADD kicks in and their undeserved praise is focused on an equally stupid waste of playing time.

Posted by Musicfan on Saturday, 06.23.07 @ 18:46pm


"It's also worth saying that NO emo band has ever gotten broad mainstream success, so you're pretty much wrong about everything you said. Try again later."

Well, when you get down from your high horse maybe should take the time to realize that they are the same thing. Whatever minimal difference in sound they may have doesn't make up fro the fact that they share the same gay depressed 14 year-old audience and have the same message (that message being "we like the taste of dick". Besides, when music sucks this much it all sounds thr same anyway.

Posted by Creepozoid on Monday, 06.25.07 @ 08:54am


Bands with real talent like Tool,System of a down,Rush and others are over looked by these cookie cutter garbage bands.I blame MTV for everything wrong with music today.I can't tell the difference between P!atd,Fall out boy and all the other gay bands that call themselves "emo" they suck ass.And calling any of these bands emo is a slap in the face to Rites of Spring,Fugazi and all the other pioneers of emocore music.

JIMI HENDRIX and PINK FLOYD mentioned in the same fucking sentence?!?!?! People hated/hate/will hate FOB for good reasons

Posted by liam on Thursday, 08.30.07 @ 14:59pm


Fall ouy boy is nothing more than a big pile of shit, plain and simple. Listen to The Smiths and you'll see why fall out boy failed where The Smiths succeded.

All these crappy bands have great influeces... Why can't they just make good music?

Posted by Roj on Saturday, 09.1.07 @ 07:13am


I love fob so much! i get really mad when people sya that like patrick stump is gay and pete wentz becuz they are so hot!!! i luv them so much!

Posted by Lauren on Thursday, 09.6.07 @ 16:43pm


"Fall ouy boy is nothing more than a big pile of shit, plain and simple. Listen to The Smiths and you'll see why fall out boy failed where The Smiths succeded."

And what's worse The Smiths got the songwrting skills, and FOB got the sales. Its just the terrible injustice in the world

"I love fob so much! i get really mad when people sya that like patrick stump is gay and pete wentz becuz they are so hot!!! i luv them so much!"

Oh, poor dearie. How about we call up Pat and Pete and they'll write a song about you and your screaming girly cohorts. Yes, ALL of them.

Do me a favour: hunt out a copy of The Smiths or The Queen is Dead and reach that epiphany called 'musical taste', that is, if you actually read this, and you're not just another FOB fan feeling the need to 'spread the word' like a cat pissing up a tree

Posted by liam on Saturday, 09.8.07 @ 16:23pm


Talent? What? Did I just hear someone call Fall Out Boy "Talented"?! I'm sorry, but I have I gotten the wrong band? I'm sorry if you're talking about a Fall Out Boy who's neo-classical, but I'm talking about a Fall Out Boy who's corporate-churned "punk"-pop who everyone seems to mantrain.

Ok, let's see... Nothing but 4/4 time signatures... Failed Blues style and structure... Failure to demonstrate any proper chords... Failure to stay in any key... Failure to show ANY instrumental art at all. OH, BUT WENTZ CAN JUMP OFF AMPS, SO THAT MUST MAKE HIM INSTANTLY WIN AT MUSIC!!!!111!shift+one!111!

No.

3-note basslines. Nothing but. I'd expect him to show some proper musicianship and walk-bass the easy s**t, but no, he goes and uses a motherf**king pick.

Ok, so what about Hooks/Licks? None. Absolutely nothing. The only reason you remember the instrumental work is because IT'S THE SAME DAMN 4 BARS REPEATED OVER AND OVER AGAIN! LIKE OMFG, THAT IS SO PROGRESSIVE!!!!</sarcasm>

And the vocals? Half of the people bumming this band like it's the best probably hate death metal. Oh the hypocrisy! Considering in The Carpal Tunnel Of Love, you hear someone attempt to scream! But instead of it sounding evil or dark, it sounds like a man having his lungs ripped out whilst violently excreting blood.

As for the topic on hand, I say even the sole consideration of entering the band is a disgrace to rock music. Rock music should be talented and people should practise and understand the musical concepts before advancing through it. Fall Out Boy? They're so much for the money, they even ADMITTED they practise only 4 times a year. And you cannot say "BUT ZEPPELIN/FLOYD WERE HATED AND THEY MADE IT!", because Zeppelin and Floyd actually had song progression, and they actually mastered their instruments, often experimenting further and creating more interesting sounds. The sound which IS rock! Fall Out Boy...? Faux-Neo-Blues fused with pop-rock?! No-f**king-way.

If you say Fall Out Boy should be entered, go read up on some fucking music theory, and get your ass beyond the boundaries set by the neo-stalinist regime known as MTV, and go and find proper music to investigate. This will apply to a large proportion of people reading this. The amount of ignorance towards Music these days is f**king sick. Far too much people take MTV fundamentally like the law. They seem to think the more whored out the trend is, the better the band is. Disgusting.

first when I heard Fall out boys music, I thought they were crappy. Then I heard Thnks fr th Mmrs, and it was great, and I listened to other fob songs and they were all great. They are not like
the other bands they have got their own style!!
Their music is true and the lyrics are amazing!
they definitely must be in!!
i Love fob!!

Posted by mnmmcn on Monday, 10.15.07 @ 06:20am


"first when I heard Fall out boys music, I thought they were crappy."

good!

"Then I heard Thnks fr th Mmrs, and it was great"

so you judged an artists' entire catalogue on 1 song, is that what you're sayin?

"They are not like
the other bands they have got their own style"

I know! Never mind the Buzzcocks and Ramones, FOB perfected pop-punk!

"Their music is true and the lyrics are amazing"

I know! I mean, before I heard FOB i was listening to shit-ass lyrcisits like Morrissey and Bob Dylan, but then I heard Pete Wentz and thought 'WOW that's fucking deep, that is!'. Who knew that super long song titles combined with nothing but 'catchy' tunes would make such a recipe for success?

"they definitely must be in!!
i Love fob!!"

That's lucky, because we were thinking about keeping them out if someone other than the other 200-odd people who ahve didn't say *_*i heart FOB*_*!








Posted by liam on Monday, 10.15.07 @ 15:48pm


Yes and No
Yes-They are successful, make good music, eye candy videos.
No-It's the same thing used over and over again, I'm sick of pop-punk. There needs to be more punk.

IDK

Posted by SSR on Saturday, 10.27.07 @ 15:54pm


Commecial success - yes
Critical success - no

And I don't think you're knowledgeable on pop punk enough to be truly sick of it

Posted by liam on Saturday, 10.27.07 @ 16:01pm


I think the 14 year old fan girls need to take that huge cock out of their ears and realize that they're listening to the biggest pile of mainstream shit.

You stupid twat bags listen to the shit that MTV spits out. What happened to the time when MTV played relevant music?

Posted by Tom on Sunday, 11.11.07 @ 10:03am


I really do not care one way or the other about FOB. In fact, I am not very familiar with them. That being said, I was just watching "London Live" which features various punk type bands in high def. FOB played two songs. I do not get the attraction to this type of music - just utter garbage. I could not even decipher a melody or a note, let alone lyrics. I swear it was just noise. What is also funny, is that these guys are supposed to be like "punk" or "emo" or whatever you want to call them, yet they are on stage playing very loud and noisy guitars, bobbing their heads, etc. Sounds to me like heavy metal, or thrash metal...anyway, they suck

FOB rocks. Girls like Avril Lavigne, and reel boys like Fall Out Boy, (not gays).
I think ifyou don't like them you shall here som more of there songs they are relly good.
My top 5 best of FOB:
1. Chicago Is So Two Years Ago.
2. I've Got All This Ringing In My Fingers.
3. Hand of God.
4. Bang the Doldrums.
5. You're Crashing, But You're No wave.

Posted by liam on Wednesday, 11.21.07 @ 14:08pm


I beg you FOB fans to pick up a Smiths record... please. Gain a sense of right and wrong. Only than can you start being smart and hear the music thats meant to be heard.


BTW- I took a piss on "From under the cork tree" the other day... best piss of my life. I guess their good for something after all.

The average age of your typical FOB fan dicates that they probably don't know what a 'record' is.

Fall Out Boy does sound like the pop punk band, but they go different directions in their songs. Not a lot of people do that, well they do, but Fall Out Boy does it better.

Posted by SSR on Tuesday, 12.25.07 @ 10:02am


I vote yes.
Only because who knows how influenctal they will be in the future.

Posted by zoe on Friday, 01.4.08 @ 13:38pm


Right, I'm no FOB fanatic, I mean I like one or 2 songs, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that they should be in. Without them, MCR ( as much as I hate them ), Green Day and Good Charlotte, the modern rock scene just wouldn't exist. They're one of the top mainstream rock bands and without them and the other aforementioned bands the modern mainstream rock/alternative scene just wouldn't be here.

Posted by Jake on Wednesday, 01.16.08 @ 15:57pm


Jimi Hendrix.... The Doors... and countless other great bands are in this Hall.. does Fall out boy really deserve to be mixed in with these legendary names?

Posted by Eddie on Wednesday, 03.12.08 @ 15:45pm


I see a lot of biased comments. You people need to learn to respect others' musical tastes. Remember, to be a musician you have to love music. To be a GREAT musician, you have to love ALL music. This band has some great songwriting. The lyrics are amazing and very creative. The music is just also amazing, and this band has shown its ability to use different styles and genres in their music many times. This band has done a lot of the genre of pop punk, and a lot for music. They deserve to be there, and I'm sure they will make it, as their material released up until their induction will surely become better and better.

I hope they never even get close, this band is almost a disgrace to rock n roll and music in general. Lets hope that people in future years have the sence and good judgement to keep them out.

Posted by Chris on Saturday, 03.22.08 @ 22:03pm


I personally like FOB's older stuff. I hate this "mainstream fitting in" stuff that they're trying to do.
Please, before you say that they don't deserve to be in the HoF, consider these points:

- music has changed. there is not going to be another "Black Sabbath" or "AC/DC"
- i see Ice Cube and Eminem also eligible. They don't sound like any rock to me. So why should FOB not be included?
- just because you don't like them, doesn't mean that they're bad. Maybe it's you're incompetence to hear something good. So go away.
- bands and people are entered into the HoF for their influence over the music. FOB have, end of story.

That is all.

"- music has changed. there is not going to be another "Black Sabbath" or "AC/DC""

This comment is incredibly unclear as to what it's supposed to mean. My interpretation is that it is saying there will never be innovaion any longer, which is completely wrong.

"- i see Ice Cube and Eminem also eligible. They don't sound like any rock to me. So why should FOB not be included?"

Because FOB suck, have marginal amounts of influence and have absolutely no innovation. That's why, and I even managed to avoid mentioning genres.

"- just because you don't like them, doesn't mean that they're bad. Maybe it's you're incompetence to hear something good. So go away."

So my opinion is wrong? My opinion, which has listened to groups as far-reaching and under-recognised as Red Krayola, The Mekons and Spacemen 3, is wrong?

Oh wait, that's just your (probably shitty) opinion.

"- bands and people are entered into the HoF for their influence over the music. FOB have, end of story."

Actually, FOB have literally no influence. Do try again.

"That is all."

Thank God.

They certainly are popular enough to get in as of right now. But, I doubt they have the staying power to be relevant in the future.

Posted by Patrick on Monday, 06.2.08 @ 11:50am


I don't believe they will last, but this is kind of unpredictable anyway, so... who cares?
Now, I have a problem with one thing - they plain SUCK live. The singer can't sing, they don't play well... I don't see anything worthy of Hall Of Fame, maybe they'll do something in future.
That'd be grand!

If they are even mentioned in the same sentence as LED ZEPPELIN, or BLACK SABBATH, or THE BEATLES, you will be struck by lighting. I will find you.. NO FOB!!! NO NO NO NO HELP ME!!

much to the chagrin of many, FOB has made pop punk what it is today in 2008. They were the first band to really jump out of the indie scene into the mainstream and they did so with star power and great marketing. from an unbiased standpoint FOB should and will be in the hall.

I say that the person who started this site, probably knows more then we do about influence and all that bull crap, and he gave them a 4% chance. Yeah, that's low. And don't say "Well, they haven't been around for that long, wait a while". No. I won't wait a while. Arctic Monkeys have been around for a smaller time, and they have a 29 % induction chance. Yeah, so shut up. FOB will not make it, so stop arguing about it. You pop punk fans will one day have to accept that they didn't do anything. They're Green Day posers, just like all the rest. Green Day is amazing, Dookie beats anything FOB has ever come out with. EVER. I think that these arguments are not even relevant if the band has less than a 25 % induction chance, because if they have less, Guess what? THEY AIN"T GETTING IN!!!!. Sorry FOB, I'm sorry that your one of the worst groups ever conceived, that must suck.

Posted by AntiIndie on Saturday, 12.20.08 @ 18:54pm


All of those here who say Fall Out Boy aren't really Emo are correct...

Emo circa mid 80s was simply an emphatic, richer progression of hardcore punk. The term supposedly was created at a Rites of Spring or Embrace show when someone, dismayed at the turns hardcore had taken, shouted "emocore" at the band.

FOB and their contemporaries are better characterized as a modern pop-punk type. It would take a book to describe the journalistic mess that resulted in the rise of today's emo music. It has been a label for at least three different styles over the last twenty years. I suppose what caused all of the confusion was the close relation to post hardcore music and the vocal style (you can still hear Guy Picciotto's voice in bands tagged "emo".)

Emo was never intended to be a genre, it just popped up and gained currency by some strange force. I motion we stop using it altogether.

(Oh, and if you want to make fun of FOB and Panic at the Disco type groups, it shouldn't be some kind of whiny, crying, wrist slitting guy; it should be equated to the hair metal of the 1980s. Fashion based and for girls.)

Oh yeah and...No, Fall Out Boy should not be in the hall.

Posted by Elastic Man on Wednesday, 12.24.08 @ 02:02am


The only value I can see in bands like Fall Out Boy is that it gets younger teens passionate about music and from there hopefully they expand their tastes into something a little bit more substantial. They certainly won't get into the Hall and in two or three years time we'll barely remember who they are, but when we were young and first getting into rock and roll, we all started somewhere.

Posted by John on Thursday, 01.29.09 @ 20:28pm


It's certainly an intriguing question

I certainly can't picture 2027 at the moment, It's near impossibly to say what the world will be like then...
Definitely however, when you look at rock music these days, the most popular sub-genres would be alt/indie along with pop-punk and isolated post-grunge acts (Nickleback, foo fighters...). Fall out boy would have to acknowledged as forerunners of their genre... They've sold serious numbers (2.6m sales for 'cork tree' in the US alone... they have a pervasive impact on modern rock charts and radioplay, so it's inevitable that they will certainly heavily influence the next big wave of pop-punk and emo music (although their own classification as emo is debatable).. it really boils down to when this revival will happen. usually it goes in cycles of around 20 or so years ie. 80's music beign recylcled in mid-late 2000's music.
Impact aside, I certainly believe fall out boy deserve a consideration for the hall at some time, pete's use of trope and irony make his lyrics instantly admirable in my opinion, and I say this as hardcore british indie fan. They're consistent both critically and commercially, and they inspire a heated argument amongst music fans with only the mention of their name! If this band doesn't play a large part in modern rock then stone me!
It seems that too many artists from the 40's and 50's have made it into the hall. There seems to me to be too much courtesy shown to mid-century mediocre acts based on isolated 'pioneering a genre' cards. It would be nice to have some more unorthodox modern bands in there soon. The countdown to nirvana and radiohead's admission has been ongoing for years at this stage... do fall out boy deserve a spot? I think it would be interesting, I think they do, I can't see them getting in easy however.

Ok. I would love for fall out boy to make it. they have been influential. 1 they are the originators of the MID WEST pop punk.Now they are bridging the gap between rock and rap. They have their own sound. They have lil wayne on songs. They're covering Kanye west, neyo.

Posted by Matt Bump on Tuesday, 07.28.09 @ 21:54pm


They are simply the best at what they do. And all you zepplin's metallica , acdc , Hell van halen any older rock group even metal heads look at their interviews and see what they were inspired by. PRECISELY THOSE BANDS. patrick was influenced by everyone. michael jackson , green day, prince, saves the day,... everything great. even barry white. why do you think their sound nowdays attracts a broader range of people.?

They are just the best at what they do. and they stay true to themselves. bands like good charlotte and boys like girls will never make it cuz their unoriginal. No one does it better Then FOB.

Bobby and G.M. are right on the money with this one. I'm glad to see someone agree on Fall Out Boy besides the usual annoying little girls that end their sentences with "I <3 Pete Wentz. OMG FOB is the best band ever!!!". First off I am a die hard fan of the group. It's simply too early to tell. The albums they have made so far are great. Not legendary but great. Emo is an imaginary genre. Bob Dylan is my opinion the best folk singer of all time and some of his lyrics if sang by Fall Out Boy would be considered emo. Don't complain about them not influencing anyone because there just hasn't been the time. Patrick Stump has the best falsetto of any singer out in the mainstream right now.I guarantee every negative poster on this page has only heard what they hear on the radio has not heard their other tracks. Yes there is a chance they could fade off and disband with their next album. Their is also a chance they change music forever. People downgraded some of the greats like Zeppelin and Nirvana (including the flip floppy magazine Rolling Stone. Still a great magazine nonetheless) so don't exclude them from consideration.

I think they will because of the fact that because they ARE so popular that the little 8 year old kid will hear them on popular radio and get caught by their infectious music. I see that they have serious talent and potential for even greater experimentation later in their career. They're the most hard rock thing on mainstream radio, which makes them important to the style of being loud and aggressive because they still can cope and fit into the mold of popular music. And they can pound out power chords as good as any punk band.

Different Sam. Should they be inducted as of right now? Definitely not. They're just another pop-punk band, and contrary to what some of the fanboys think it was NOT invented by Green Day, they just re-popularized it. Try The Ramones and The Buzzcocks. For all I know they could be worthy by 2027.

Posted by Sam on Saturday, 07.3.10 @ 17:25pm


YES!!!!!! I think fall out boy has really influenced a lot of people including me. They are truly amazing. People need to realize they have A LOT more great songs than what you hear on the radio. And when you call them "emo" your really just being stupid cause you probably dont know what your talking about when you say "emo"(look it up. "emo" is a genre of music from the 80's). Fall out boy is one of the best bands on the ####ing planet Fall out boy is unique and different from a lot of other bands and i think that should count for something. So yeah they really do deserve to be in the hall of fame. And if you cant see that then #### off!

You do realize that Green Day was formed 14 years before Fallout Boy, right? And that MCR formed at the same time as Fallout Boy right? Also, I'm sure you know that Panic!

all i'm saying is that what he said was wrong.

Posted by Bob on Sunday, 09.12.10 @ 11:25am


"Well, when you get down from your high horse maybe should take the time to realize that they are the same thing. Whatever minimal difference in sound they may have doesn't make up fro the fact that they share the same gay depressed 14 year-old audience and have the same message (that message being 'we like the taste of dick'. Besides, when music sucks this much it all sounds thr same anyway."

Okay, people, I'm only going to say this once: Pop-punk and emo are not the same thing. I haven't really heard emo, but I am aware that it has it's roots in the D.C. hardcore scene, and if you think that hardcore and pop-punk are the same thing you must be deaf (though they do share some similar influences.) The Ramones were the first pop-punk band, The Buzzcocks were the second (and the first non-American pop-punk band,) and if you honestly think that those bands have/had an audience of "gay depressed 14-year olds" then you're pretty much forfeiting your right to comment. Ditto for Green Day, who brought pop-punk back to the mainstream. I also think that if they had any message it was that "you can all play this type of music if you want," not "we like the taste of d*ck" (on the contrary...) I know the bands they influenced (and thus are also part of the audience) aren't gay depressed 14-year olds. Grow a brain and turn off your radio.

Sam is spot on here. Emo was a subgenre of the 80s hardcore scene. It doesn't exist anymore and the Hot Topic bands have no connection to it whatsoever.

If anyone ever wants to check out what Emo really was I'd recommend starting with Embrace (the 80s Ian Mackaye band, not the Britpop era one) and Rights of Spring.

Fall Out Boy is a band who write songs with a poppy sound and shitty lyrics. They would be nowhere without Green Day, even though they don't come anywhere close to what Green Day is.

Fall Out Boy is a dissapointment and they shouldn't be commended for such horrible music, they won't get in.

If you want to honor some real punk rock, or at least honorable punk rock music, look at The Ramones, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Ranid, and my personal favorite, Green Day.

Posted by Brittany on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 07:58am


Excellent suggestions, Brittany. I'll add... Wire (Pink Flag at least), Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, The Buzzcocks, The Stooges and post-punk (Joy Division, Gang of Four, The Cure, Bauhaus).

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 05:12am


Some of you people suprise me. I'm not saying this just because im a fan, but because it's just true. Of course they sound a little poppy. Nothing in the next ten years will get remotely big without it sounding that way. Not saying they should sound poppy just for that reason. But rock isn't just about heavy guitars and bangin drums.And they are VERY true to music. JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERTSAND THE SONG!!!! Doesn't mean it has no meaning. Every onsg they've EVER made has a meaning. And it all stands for something different. They're all talented wether you like it or not. Most artists these days don't even right their own music. Every song they have has been made from scratch. And to me....sounds good. When you break it down every remotely popular band has some pop in its design

When you add up the numbers they're about 60% R and Roll 30% punk rock and 10 % pop. Just because they have a more melodic sound doesnt make them pop....it makes them inovative. And they really should get put into the rock hall of fame. Like i said rock aint about heavy guitar, its about the attitude and sounding great live , and being true to music. Look at led zeppelin,Tiwsted sister, ac/dc. Some people called this the devil music. And now it's the most pure sound to any rockers ears. Who knows what that people will think in 10 years, they've infleunced so many bands. And because they dont sound like every other band. They sound like fallout boy.

And finally i know it doesnt count for much. THEY AREN'T ABUNCH OF DRUGGED UP POSERS WHO PARTY ALL NIGHT. They're grown men who are nice people, who weren't very cool when they were in high school. So they started a band and made it big. And they didn't do it cause they loved money or sex or drugs. They loved the music!!!!!

--------------------------------------------------
I edited you post slightly.

I know you are a fan, & being the case, I will not rip into these gentlemen using snotty words & crap. However:

"Of course they sound a little poppy. Nothing in the next ten years will get remotely big without it sounding that way. Not saying they should sound poppy just for that reason."

I hope not. I really hope this Isn't the case for the future...

"But rock isn't just about heavy guitars and bangin drums."

No... but it helps.

"When you break it down every remotely popular band has some pop in its design"

Which would be fine, if the definition of pop didn't change as well over the yrs. There are bands that aren't pop, that are successful. The majority of them today Are rock bands.

"When you add up the numbers they're about 60% R and Roll 30% punk rock and 10 % pop."

You have the #'s backwards.

"Just because they have a more melodic sound doesnt make them pop....it makes them inovative."

Technically, you're right about how bands can have a more melodic sound & still rock. The Smithereens did a demolition job on their pop, & made it rock in the 80's. The Gin Blossoms did the same thing in the 90's, though that has more to do w/the first album. The ability to connect w/the rock parts of the first album sometimes evaded them as the yrs. went on. In the case of FOB, the riffs were stock, & the rhythms were loose in a bad way.

"Like i said rock aint about heavy guitar, its about the attitude and sounding great live , and being true to music."

Here we disagree. Pop is about doing whatever you can to sell to as wide a range of audience you can. Rock is about the music, & being taken away by the jam, regardless of where the music goes, or what it sounds like. Attitude's got nothing to do w/it, though if it shows up, more's the better.
--------------------

Despite everything I've said, even I have a feeling they will end up in the Hall one day. The Hall has shown it's willing to cater to pop, & rock-styled pop forms. For what it's worth, even I have to admit that not only does FOB fit in here (rock-styled pop form), they'd be a solid choice for their time, providing the voting board continues the same outlook over the next 10-15 yrs.

To all those teenage girls who think that Fall Out Boy is the greatest band ever, hear this: get a musical life. Stop being just another mindless sheep who just listens to the same crappy music over and over again.

Branch out and listen to different kinds of music like blues, rockabilly, folk and old school rap.

Also, stop thinking that just becuase someone else dosen't like Fall Out Boy you should go on the warpath just because someone says something that you don't agree with.

Lastly, if you really want to listen to some real punk, then I would recommend MC5 or The Stooges rather then this overplayed pop-punk crap.

Posted by Andrew on Sunday, 11.24.13 @ 22:41pm


Fall Out Boy is a damn fine band. 8 or 9 excellent, catchy songs. Patrick Stump is a great lead singer.

I can't see them in the Hall, but they sure can throw out the groove. Have seen them twice. Great sets both times.

Fall Out Boy have had a great influence during the new millenium.
Their music has influenced a great amount of bands. They've practically defined 00's rock music along with other influential bands.

Posted by GFQ on Sunday, 12.29.13 @ 17:24pm


My question to you, GFQ, are what bands have been influenced by Fall Out Boy within the last few years?

If you see them as a great influence, then by all means, keep on thinking that.

In my opinion, Fall Out Boy are a worthless piece of crap as are 30 Seconds to Mars and all those other pop emo bands. These groups have done nothing significant for rock n' roll in the last few years.

Plus, artists like The White Stripes, John Mayer, Kron, Franz Ferdinand, Mumford & Sons, The Strokes, Dream Theater, TV on the Radio, Belle & Sebastian, The Arctic Monkeys, Yellowcard, and Angels & Airwaves have created much more innovative and influenal music then Fall Out Boy ever will.

King, is your heard on right? Fall Out Boy are nothing like Led Zeppelin. Zeppelin influenced countless bands from Aerosmith to Metallica.

What bands has Fall Out Boy influenced? None that I know of. Their songs are just typical pop emo crap.

There are only a few rock groups from the 2000s that I can see being inducted into the Hall, and emo punk bands like Fall Out Boy and Panic At the Disco aren't one of them.

Bands like The White Stripes and TV on The Radio belong in The Rock Hall alot more then Fall Out Boy does, so get used to it!

Hey, Andrew. What I still want to know your opinion on Stevie Ray Vaughan. Should he be inducted?

Karl, answering your question, I can honestly say yes that Stevie Ray Vaughan should be inducted. John Mayer owns a sizable debt to Vaughan as a guitarist and Stevie is one of the few guitarists who showed the sound and style of the blues at a time when most guitarists weren't doing what Vaughan was doing.

The Hall needs Stevie Ray Vaughan!

As much as I really, really hate to admit it, but these pop-punkers may get in on their first year. Rolling Stone loves them to death and the people ten years younger than me think they are true rock stars. FOB has talent, but that doesn't mean that I like them or their music.

I'd say let's wait and see what the Hall does with Blink-182 first.
