Needs more cowbell.

I have a shirt on right now that says this.

To actually answer the TS, I don't really care about Fall Out Boy. His voice is annoying as all fuck, but that's about it.

fallout boy are good. i mean if writing catchy songs which stick in your head is good. if you're a ****INEEDSHREDINEEDARPEGGIOSINEEDCHORDS guy then i guess they arent that great.

fall out boy is a band that is swarmed by twelve year old girls and old people desperately trying to be cool. Thus, they are very uncool.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Ask yourself since you ssay you can't stand them anymore. You must have made the choice not to like them at somtime and there is probably a reason for that. Me, personally, I don't like that type of music, i'm not bashing the band, I just don't like alot of the new pop/rock stuff that is out right now.

They either seem to be punk or trying to sound like a band from 60s-70s.
#14
They're musically and lyrically shallow. They're obviously aimed towards teenagers, mainly girls.

No, I hate metal but I hate fallout boy.

Why?

Well, there used to be a time when you had to be talented to write songs and get on the radio, but now, it seems, mediocrity is celebrated.

That is why UG doesn't like fallout boy

oh, and that^
#16
I don't completely hate Fallout Boy. There songs are crap but I can't hate them for 3 reasons.
1. Unlike 90% of people getting played on mainstream radio, they play there own instruments and write there own songs.
2. They actually have good tastes in music (I know this because they guest programmed a music video show here in Australia)
3. There name is a Simpson’s reference.
That being said Pete Wentz rivals only Millie Vanillie and Ashlee Simpson as the biggest joke in musical history.

That and, their fans are generally very closed minded and annoying to talk to.

I actually like their music. Some of their songs really do have great lyrics, and they're damn catchy. I just don't like how Pete Wentz just seems to act so full of himself all the time and never misses a chance to be in the spotlight. I think a lot more people would like them if they stopped trying to get the media's attention all the time and just focused on making music.

I like Fall Out Boy...

They make catchy music, sure Stumps not a great singer but they're good at what they do, which is make catchy pop rock/punk.

But meh.
Some people hate them on Wentz/their image/their popularity, atleast some people maybe just don't like them as it's not their thing.
#22
I don't like them, but I definitely don't hate them either. I think I agree with Madcap on this one.
#23
I hate the fact they touch instuments....maybe its cause i like metalcore

Meh, they're catchy at first, but after a little while, the music just loses its appeal. Then it just gets boring and even annoying.

All IMO, of course.
#29
because they sound like the same powerchord mixed around with different lyrics type songs that sound real catchy but sound really boring after a while and don't sound rewarding when you learn them. Something like a Hendrix song sounds rewarding though

To be honest, I think that the whole "OMG FOB SUCK!!Z!!" crap and the haters of the band have come to be much more annoying than the band itself could ever be.

I wasn't referring to those who respectfully present their opinions using valid arguments; it was aimed more towards the ones who offer up the same "BECAUSE EMO IS ****" or what have you argument over and over again.

I think im so awesome because i hate pop bands. Im so non-conformist.

I'm curious, TS, where did you get your statistic that only 2% of UG likes Fall Out Boy? From what I've seen in this thread and others on similar topics, I would guess that it is considerably higher.

What lolcat said about fans of a band calling people who don't like them 'haters' is true; it automatically makes the fans 10x more annoying.

1. The music and lyrics are uninventive and simple.
2. The fans are even more annoying than the band.
3. They are a bunch of sellouts. They've appeared in AT&T commercials.
4. Pete Wentz embodies every quality in pop conformism that I hate.

I'm not saying I don't like it, but musically, it's rubbish. There's nothing technical about it.

loledit: More importantly, there's nothing ORIGINAL about it.
