Fall Out Boy is a pop punk band from Chicago that was formed in the early 2000s. The band rose to fame in 2005 with their album From Under the Cork Tree. The band’s previous release Take This to Your Grave was an underground success. The band’s first major release produced two hit songs, “Dance, Dance” and “Sugar, We’re Going Down”. The band took a hiatus from 2009 to 2012 before releasing their fifth album Save Rock and Roll. The band’s 2003 release of Take This to Your Grave is regarded as a vital blueprint for the pop punk music scene in the early 2000s.
