Overview

With huge sales and new albums and despite years of hiatus, this widely popular pop-punk emo band is back and here to stay

Fall Out Boy were front-and-center of the mid-2000s emo scene, gaining a devoted following with their infectious brand of pop-punk. After a tumultuous decade, the band is now stronger than ever and winning new fans. Their debut, Take This to Your Grave, was cited as a framework of pop-punk music and they achieved worldwide fame as the emo scene exploded. However, after a stream of hits, internal fighting, health issues, and eventual backlash against the emo scene threatened to destroy the band, leading to a temporary hiatus. They came back stronger, with a new sound and an even wider fanbase. Their latest album, American Beauty/American Psycho, released in 2015, has sold over 1 million units in the US.  This is the first biography on the band and an in-depth account of their story, from its beginnings in Chicago, to worldwide fame, addictions, and disillusionment with the music industry to their recent resurgence.
