  • Is Fall Out Boy emo?


  • What is and isn't emo is in your heart. Fob is emo tho, 100% Ive had website dedicated to them since Take This To Your Grave, we all already had this discussion.

  • I thought they were talking about the character from fallout. God, I'm fucking stupid.

  • I agree, fall out boy isn't emo LOL

  • Lmfao

  • Every band is going to evolve. They’re not going to remake from under the cork tree every year for years. That’s what no one understands. Bands are allowed to change and have different sound. Katie, please shut up 🤣 it’s not 2009 anymore.

  • Pre-hiatus was somewhat emo, modern day fall out boy is rock. It’s definitely not as emo as My Chemical Romance, Sleeping With Sirens, Falling In Reverse, etc, but it’s still somewhat has the vibes. Also unpopular opinion, modern Fall Out Boy still slaps.

  • Fall Out Boy was emo, now it is not. It will always be part of the emo trinity/quartet. And just because it is not as “emo” now doesn’t mean they are not fucking good.


  • Comedy Central presents: A total cringe

  • There is a difference between "emo music" and "music emo kids listen to" and Fall Out Boy falls into the second category

  • "Real Emo" only consists of the dc Emotional Hardcore scene and the late 90's Screamo scene. What is known by "Midwest Emo" is nothing but Alternative Rock with questionable real emo influence. When people try to argue that bands like My Chemical Romance are not real emo, while saying that Sunny Day Real Estate is, I can't help not to cringe because they are just as fake emo as My Chemical Romance (plus the pretentiousness). Real emo sounds ENERGETIC, POWERFUL and somewhat HATEFUL. Fake emo is weak, self pity and a failed attempt to direct energy and emotion into music. Some examples of REAL EMO are Pg 99, Rites of Spring, Cap n Jazz (the only real emo band from the midwest scene) and Loma Prieta. Some examples of FAKE EMO are American Football, My Chemical Romance and Mineral EMO BELONGS TO HARDCORE NOT TO INDIE, POP PUNK, ALT ROCK OR ANY OTHER MAINSTREAM GENRE Precautionary edit: this is a joke copypasta I'm not serious. (Fall out boy technically are not emo still though)

  • I’m fucking dying what the heck is this

  • I don’t think that FOB are emo, but the argument that “emo is music that evokes strong emotions” seems quite stupid to me, because by that argument “sober” by Demi Lovato or any emotional pop song could be considered emo.

  • I think fob definitely WAS emo but not anymore. Especially Pete Wentz, he was hella emo. It's the same with panic! i feel

  • Take This To Your Grave and some of From Under The Cork Tree could be argued being somewhat emo, but Infinity On High and on are far from emo

  • I’m 50/50 on them being emo but the emo side just annoyed me so idk, they were entertaining tho 😂

  • Both sides failed. No mention of American Football?

  • ah yes, "sometimes before it gets better, the darkness gets bigger, the person you'd take a bullet for is behind the trigger" is not emotional? "in the end, i'd do it all again, i think you're my best friend" isnt? "and i saw god cry in the reflection of my enemies and all the lovers with no time for me"? "you can only blame your problems on the world for so long before it all becomes the same old song"?? "the only way to make it through with hearts and wrists intact is to realize 2 out of 3 aint bad"???? "did you ever love her, do you know, or did you never want to be alone"?????

  • emo is not how you dress u kno

  • The guyliner doesn’t lie

  • Fall Out Boy may not be emo but 2005 Pete Wentz sure was

  • "Sometimes we take chances, sometimes we take pills" “I’ve got troubled thoughts and the self esteem to match” "The best of us can find happiness in misery" “I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself” "People will dissect us till this doesn't mean a thing anymore" "I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends" "And the poets were just kids who didn't make it and never had it all" ALL of Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes HOW TF IS OLD FOB NOT EMO?

  • Fall Out Boy was emo, but not anymore with their new sound... like they were part of the Emo Trinity... like-

  • jordan: *doesn't want to say it* also Jordan: *says it anyway*

  • they are not taking all of fall out boys early music into account and im mad it’s making me upset

  • Whats fallout.....

  • Fall out boy is not emo. They never were, the bands that they got lumped in with weren't emo either. Emo was a movement in the 1980s and 90s in the DC post hardcore scene. (That's if you want to be a purist) but even if you look at a more contemporary definition of emo that can include bands like Free Throw, or Prince Daddy and the Hyena, Fall Out Boy still doesn't fit into that subgenre. They were a Pop-Punk band, and now they're just a pop band.

  • anyone saying that fall out boy isn't emo clearly never read Pete Wentz's blog during the Under the Corktree era... shit was the most emo collection of words in history imo.

  • only their first album can be considered emo

  • this is awesome

  • This is how the western empires shall fall

  • Is this how south park got the emo kids idea

  • The thing that make me feel better was fall out boy song get busy living or get busy dying It's my favorite what about yours?

  • Sugar, We're Going Down is about masturbating on the tour bus. Pete said so himself in a live bootleg I heard that I will now scour the internet forever for again. Also it's weird to hear them argue this and none of them seem to know he has severe depression and has tried to commit suicide and has multiple songs written about suicide in their discography (Atavan Halen comes to mind). Oh yeah and no they aren't emo.

  • *Was it the word cock, did that scare you?*

  • are discount Laura Dern and the curly haired dude really trying to argue that FoB is selling out...

  • Was it the word cock? Did it scare you? 😂

  • I feel like everyone in the comments took it seriously... im cringing

  • People say : new fob is not emo New fob : “i stop wearing black when they make a darker colour”

  • I really don't care whether FOB is emo or not I FCKING LOVE THEM

  • FOB had emo fans but made pop punk music, sometimes stadium rock, very rarely with 'emo' sounding elements. Pete's scream vocals on some songs are emo, but that's about it.

  • This is one of the most pointless arguments I’ve ever heard and I love it

  • Even if this is a joke, the arguments lack of musical facts here...

  • "Fall Out Boy is emo" How can you be that stupid? MCR is an emo band, FOB is Not. It's just facts. The 2 idiots on the left are so music-ignorant I feel like they're just arguing this to troll. I mean come on.

  • I am so glad Anthony chose the right side, otherwise it'd be hard to agree with him.

  • What about an episode Sleeping naked VS Clothed

  • Fall Out Boy is emo, pop punk, punk soul, rock, pop, and SAD and there’s no in between

  • I don't consider myself as a FOB fan and I can have better " they were Emo" arguments than those two guys.

  • I better not even bring up twenty one pilots...

  • I love how Katie pulls a reference all the way back to their og first song/album

  • Katie is definitely someone who thinks they are indie

  • I heard of this, I'm one of the biggest Fall Out Boy fans in the world, they used to be emo, not so much anymore

  • They will forever be part of the emo quartet

  • Under the cork tree’s genre is literally labeled as emo 🤷🏾‍♀️

  • This is why I hate labeling bands or anything in general as “emo” “goth” “metal” “rock” “screammo” because someone else is gonna say “nah bich its deathcore tf you talking about?” And it gets into stupid, heated online debates on the genre of a band. Its music, just listen and enjoy.

  • Saying that nothing after 2006 matters is Folie à Deux erasure and I am not here for that

  • It’s when you sit down and think about what they’re saying that it REALLY hits you

  • Jokes aside, emo is a subgenre of post-hardcore. Fall Out Boy does not have that post-hardcore sound that emo bands have, so they're not emo. Thursday is emo. Fall Out Boy is not. The lyrics argument doesn't work, because it would mean that every other genre of rock music is emo, which is not true.
