Fall out Boy Are A Holiday Hit

Posted by - 12:52 PM on 12/14/05
I would just like to point out the fact that this past week, Fall Out Boy scanned a whopping 91,830 (+56% from last week) copies of From Under The Cork Tree. Congratulations to the band!

I wonder if there is anyone on this site that doesn't like Fall Out Boy. I doubt it because they are always tops on the last.fm list.

It's a shame tough. Decent band but not amazing by any means.

The level of a band's "amazingness" has never been in direct parallel with how much I like them.

Cool to hate? I think the best reason to dislike them is not because it's 'cool' but because they aren't that good.

How is what they do any different than My Chemical Romance. They obviously aren't talentless, as they managed to rise from a small band to what they are now.

Looking at that comparison, both band's singles aren't the best songs on their albums. My Chem has several songs I like, but Helena is trash and I'm not okay is sub-par. Fall Out Boy's Dance Dance is ok, and Sugar is decent, but overall they aren't the best on the album.

i love how the people that like fall out boy just label EVERYONE that doesnt like them "people that just hate them because it is 'cool' to hate them"........get the fuck over yourselves and fall out boy, maybe i just dislike them because they suck and their music is fucking boring. i have disliked this band from the first time i heard them, way back when.
