Fall Out Boy (commonly abbreviated as FOB) is an emo-pop-punk band that rose to prominence in the mid-2000s.
The foursome’s next album, Infinity On High, was released in February of 2007. The album debuted at number one and went platinum just one month after it was released.
To promote the album, Wentz launched a viral internet campaign. The campaign featured a fictional organization known as “Citizens For Our Betterment” hacking into the website of their record label.In 2008, FOB released a CD/DVD package Live In Phoenix and another studio album, Folie Ã Deux.
The band takes their name from The Simpsons’ character “Fallout Boy”, side kick to Radioactive Man. While Fallout Boy has only appeared in a few Simpsons episodes, he does have a catch phrase, “Jiminy jillickers!”
