Fall Out Boy

It's a shame that Fall Out Boy's street cred is crippled by the quartet's association with the dead-in-the-water emo scene and the tabloid ubiquity of bassist/lyricist (and former Mr. Ashlee Simpson) Pete Wentz. See, FOB at their best check all serious rock-band criteria: irresistible songs; Patrick Stump's vulnerable, emotive vocals; and killer players in drummer Andy Hurley and guitarist Joe Trohman. After hitting pop paydirt with 2007's fantastically supple and celebratory Infinity on High, follow-up Folie à Deux was a rushed dud. Surviving an immaculately timed hiatus, FOB reunited and returned to form with last year's Save Rock and Roll, finally able to be just a great band rather than a genre flagship or Wentz's ego vehicle. Perfect pairing is provided by the Hayley Williams–fronted, anthemic late-aughts radio staple Paramore.
