Interesting facts and trivia about Fall Out Boy. By Songfacts®.

Fall Out Boy are from Wilmette, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). Formed in 2001, the name was chosen when the band asked the crowd in their second show what their name should be, and an audience member shouted out "Fallout Boy," the name of Radioactive Man's sidekick on The Simpsons. The band wasn't even aware that the name was a Simpsons reference.

Pete Wentz writes most of the band's lyrics. Patrick Stump was once the primary source of Fall Out Boy's lyrics, focusing more on his high school experiences, but as Wentz took over that role, Stump focused on writing the music. "It's almost like I read his words and I'm hearing a symphony," Stump explained. "I hear what's in there because it's so specific."

Fall Out Boy has toured with multiple bands, including Taking Back Sunday, Less Than Jake, blink-182, Panic! at the Disco, Midtown, Hawthorne Heights, The All-American Rejects, The Academy Is..., The Hush Sound, October Fall, From First to Last, Play Radio Play and Gym Class Heroes.
