Fall out boy


Fall Out Boy is a band that started in 2001 in a small suburb in Wilmette, Illinois after friends Joe Trohman and Pete Wentz met highschooler Patrick Stump. Stump originally auditioned as a drummer, but instead became the lead singer. At this time, Wentz also wanted drummer Andy Hurley from Racetraitor, but he appeared uninterested and too busy. So instead, they recruited Ben Rose, who helped record their first demo in his basement. Several other members passed in and out of the band, and while Stump began to become uninterested in it, Wentz was becoming more and more excited in its progress. Soon after, the band needed a fill-in drummer, and Hurley rushed to take the spot. Wentz recalls it as one of those “ah-ha” moments, where everything just clicked. Hurley continued to fill in a few more times, and eventually joined the band permanently to be their new drummer. Fall Out Boy continued to play small gigs, none too crowded, until their album From Under the Cork Tree came out, making two Top Hits with “Sugar We’re Going Down” and “Dance, Dance”.

Their star status continued to skyrocket while they played for thousands of people and went on many music award shows. Another album soon came out, Infinity on High, that also continued their streak, but everything ended with Folie à Deux. Recording sessions for it were tough, and as soon as it was released, the band split up into different directions.

Stump released a solo album in 2011, but despite many positive reviews, it was never really popular. Wentz’s new band Black Cards didn’t catch fire either, and eventually, rumors of a Fall Out Boy reunion were spreading. They were confirmed not too long after in February 2013, which also created their new album, Save Rock and Roll, released in April 2013. It was soon made number one on U.S. charts, and they traveled in tours that reached America, Europe, and Australia.

Their latest and sixth album, American Beauty/American Psycho, came out early 2015, and is continuously being sold around the world and played everywhere.

How is Transportation Used?

During their constant traveling for tours, many cars, buses, planes, and boats are used to get to their needed location. Plus, band equipment and merchandise that can be sold are shipped through all previous methods mentioned, along with trains. Fans also need ways to get to their shows, which use modes of transportation.


There were several risks that were taken during the creation of Fall Out Boy, as well as during their time as a band. For example, several current members transferred from different bands that gained a profit (it may not have been much, but it was something). This decision could have been a horrible one, since the band might have flopped right away, leaving the members with nowhere to go. Also, when Fall Out Boy got back together, they risked the chance of breaking up again, or simply not going anywhere with their new albums.


In Georgia, Fall Out Boy makes a huge impact wherever they play. At any stadium they are at, that place receives a large profit, affecting the people here in Georgia, and the people who work there. It's the same at any other city in the world, and the money from merchandise sold also adds up to a total profit. Additionally, many jobs are needed and eventually created to maintain the stadiums, or even other things, such as planes and hotels, that they stop at.
