Fall Out Boy in an American rock band which was formed in Wilmette, Illinois in 2001. The band consists of four members, Patrick Stump (vocalist and guitarist), Pete Wentz (bassist), Joe Truman (guitarist), and Andy Hurley (drummer). They recorded their debut album, Take This to Your Grave in 2003 and it became an instant underground hit. The popularity helped them in gaining a fan following in thousands as they received commercial offers and tours. In 2005, their new album, From Under the Cork Tree produced two hit singles, ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down,’ and ‘Dance, Dance’. Both singles received certification for double platinum. After the singles went viral on an international scale, the group became superstars. The band received nomination for Best New Artist in 2006 for the Grammy Awards. Their follow-up in 2007, Infinity on High, ranked number one on the Billboard 200 as it sold over 260,000 copies within the first week of sales. The album also produced two singles which were international hits, ‘This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race’, and ‘Thnks fr th Mmrs’. Their next release, Believers Never Die- Greatest Hits got the band opportunities to explore side projects as they took a hiatus from 2009-2012.
After regrouping again in 2013, Fall Out Boy recorded their next album, Save Rock and Roll. It gave the boys their career’s second number one on the charts. Not only that, it turned out to be triple platinum. The song, ’My Songs Know What You Did in The Dark (Light Em Up)’ ranked one in the top 20 singles chart. In 2015, Fall Out Boy released their sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho worldwide. It was preceded by the certification of 2x platinum top 10 hit.
