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 twelve videos for one album mashed together 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.

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).

* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: After noticing that their past albums tended to have predominantly red or blue color schemes, the band decided to make MANIA a ''purple'' album.

As of February 4, 2013, Fall Out Boy stated the end of their hiatus as they finished their recording of their newest album, ''Save Rock and Roll'', which came out April 16th, bumped up from its initial May release. They then allowed fans to hear the whole album a week early on their [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPa0TZwXH4pJQG1MjDHGX49lhY5jN1LWi YouTube]] and [[https://soundcloud.com/falloutboy/sets/save-rock-and-roll Soundcloud]]. They've released a series of often bizarre and disturbing music videos for each song on the record called ''The Youngblood Chronicles'' and released an old-school punk/hardcore EP, ''PAX AM DAYS'', produced by Ryan Adams. In the summer of 2014, they hit the road as co-headliners with Music/{{Paramore}} for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVWowXll98A Monumentour]], considered one of the most highly anticipated rock tours of that year. In late 2014, they announced their sixth studio album, ''American Beauty/American Psycho'', which was released on January 20, 2015.

2015. After a cryptic trailer release stunt in Chicago area movie theaters that went horribly wrong when they didn't air at the time the band advertised, fans eventually discovered what was next for Fall Out Boy: their next album ''M A N I A'' with the first single ''Young and Menace'' bumped up to release on Patrick Stump's birthday (how nice of them!).

* OverlyLongTitle: They seem to love these. To list Pre-hiatus Fall Out Boy loved these as a means of standing out from the crowd, but eventually dumped them all would probably fill up the page, but one really notable example is after enough people commenting on their 2013 comeback song: long titles made them realize it was getting played out. Despite it being treated as a defining element of the band from some, long FOB song titles started becoming less prominent from Folie à Deux. One of the few pre-hiatus examples of this is: "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)". On the radio, it's usually referred to as "Light 'Em Up" to save time and space. All of this longrunning long song title talk might have given Fall Out Boy a small complex; ''Young and Menace'' was originally titled ''Young and a Menace'', but they removed the "a" thinking that it might make the title too long for people.

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The video for "Miss Missing You". According to Pete and Patrick's VH1 commentary, it was deliberately that way to make the trailer park occupants seem less narmy and also due to a lack of natural light in later scenes.
* DiabolusExNihilo: Let's face it, most people weren't expecting the briefcase to contain [[spoiler: a being that's either a HumanoidAbomination or just pure evil to appear, kill a bunch of people and then get killed (or not?) by Fall Out Boy]]. There was no foreshadowing for this because, according to the VH1 commentary, they only ''just'' decided to set up the idea of there being a darker group besides Courtney Love's and [[spoiler: a sinister being inside the briefcase]] with the final video. The situation is also glaring in that whatever the boys are seeing in the briefcase during "The Phoenix" video is ''definitely'' not what was in the briefcase in "Save Rock and Roll".

Patrick has a case of this when [[spoiler: the little kid who helped kidnap him starts chasing him with an old-school boombox, implying that Patrick knows what it's for.

In the commentary for the "Miss Missing You" video, the evil Patrick hears a girl playing with radio signals and tries to attack until Pete stops him. In the VH1 commentary, Patrick notes the "evil" version of his had been conditioned to hate music and therefore treats ANY music as a BrownNote.

Courtney apparently [[FreudianExcuse had anti-creative ideas drilled into her head when she was younger]] and is leading a group of {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s convinced that the boys are bad news.

This wasn't intended as a TakeThat to any of those things (except for EOWTG, which Patrick acknowledged that he "wanted it burned" in the VH1 commentary), they just burned stuff there was plenty of copies of and/or could be easily replaced.

The band was on hiatus, ([[InsistentTerminology not a breakup]], no matter what your friend tells you they've read on the internet that isn't directly from the band.) During the hiatus, Patrick started a solo musical effort, Pete started a dancehall band turned EDM act called the Black Cards, and Joe and Andy have wrapped up work with rock supergroup The Damned Things (also featuring members of Music/{{Anthrax}} and Every Time I Die). Andy did guest drumming with Enabler and Joe started a new band called With Knives (where he [[HiddenDepths does lead vocals]]).

* SellOut: They've been having this thrown at them since ''Infinity On High'', as they ironed out most of the Emo sound introduced on their second album into more of an Alt. Rock and a more general PopPunk sound. However, the accusations ''really'' blew up post-hiatus with their sound changing to be more Pop and lacking in their main instruments in favor of orchestration and synths. Many see the band as being treated more like a business, as the amount of merchandise produced is ''much'' greater than their music production. This, along with the copious amount of touring, which is one of the reasons they got burnt out in the first place, seems to suggest they don't care too much about improving upon what they did wrong the first time around, and would rather make more money.
