--> '''Pete''': me and patrick can finish eachothers sentences. this is what makes it so funny when people ask us if we care that you think the the other one is hotter or cooler, or how much everyone makes a big deal about who writes what or is where in photos. we don’t care. that kid is my best friend and the rest of the world could blow up and fall out boy can break up and he still will be.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Back around the time that ''Save Rock and Roll'' came out, the guys stated that they know how to not fall into the pitfalls that they did from 2003-2008 (i.e. making new albums every 2 years, touring constantly on a hectic schedule around the world, and not taking enough breaks in between those). However, you'd swear they haven't, especially since they seem to have developed ''more'' problems, which is starting to affect their music production, as they seem physically and creatively burned out on ''MANIA'' from overextending themselves both by making a lot of music, touring, and marketing themselves to hell and back since 2013.

They have nothing to do with the mascot of the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' game series, Vault Boy, and are named after [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Radioactive Man's faithful sidekick]]. They're often grouped together with Music/PanicAtTheDisco, Music/TheAcademyIs, Music/GymClassHeroes, and Music/CobraStarship, mainly due to being TrueCompanions, collaborating with each other on stuff (music or otherwise) often, and being signed to Fueled By Ramen (and to Pete's own vanity label, Decaydance Records, now known as DCD2).

They have numerous music videos, including one where they pretended to be vampire hunters that went on for about seven minutes (A Little Less SixteenCandles, A Little More "Touch Me"), one with Turk from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' along with ridiculous amount of Michael Jackson references (for their cover of "Beat It"), and eleven videos for one album mashed together into one movie with Elton John as God and Tommy Lee as the Devil (The Young Blood Chronicles). Other notable deeds the band has committed include one of them impregnating Ashlee Simpson ''and'' a model, wearing remarkably tight trousers, almost getting a Guinness World Record for playing a live concert on all seven continents in a certain amount of time, getting a Guinness World Record for doing the most press interviews within a 24 hour time span, being loved by [[Music/{{Blink 182}} Mark]] [[TropeCodifier Hoppus]], getting on ''Series/TopOfThePops'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RdF9_uFFNw with a song]] with a past history of homosexual subtext, and having some really strange lyrics. They also have a comic called ''ComicBook/FallOutToyWorks'', a {{Cyberpunk}} love story with [[GainaxEnding one big mind screw of an ending]]. As is to be expected from them.

** ''MANIA'' is another source of contention on this; notably, "Young and Menace" drew enough criticism for being a poorly executed attempt at EDM that the band were quick to say that it was the only song on the album like that as to not scare more people off from checking out the album. They also had to delay the album by four months, although the final product doesn't seem to show any extra or special effort, which makes it appear that they announced the album before they were very far into production just for the hype and simply hoped they'd finish the album by the date they set (which they didn't).

Some critics have also derisively compared them to Music/Maroon5, a band widely regarded to have "sold out". (See the YMMV page for more on this.)

Some also note that there seems to be a larger emphasis on merch and marketing, such as the production of three separate music videos for one song ("Irresistible"), and constant touring (which was said to be one of the reasons for their hiatus).

** Now we have ''MANIA'' being another source of contention on this, since it has songs that are terribly produced and/or underwritten, 'Young & Menace' being the primary example, as it skews off into directions that they ''never'' should've attempted, like the terrible pitch shifts, the overly-long chorus, and bad instrumentation. The backlash was so big that they were quick to say that that was the only song on the album like that as to not scare more people off from checking out the album. It now feels like they're just cashing in on their success even more than the two albums before it. Not helping their case is that they delayed the release of the album by almost 4 months so that they could apparently work out the kinks, but it not really showing in the final product. When the thing was actually delayed, it felt like they were just writing songs as they went ''after'' announcing the release date rather than being well into production before releasing it, which fuels the cash-in feel of the album. Now they're even ''more'' accused of trying to be Music/Maroon5 than they've ever been; a band that sold out long ago and has been chasing current Pop trends, hoping to stay some semblance of relevant, but is actually growing less and less with each successive album. The only people defending them nowadays are the diehard fangirls, no one else.
