The band is well known for such songs as "Dance, Dance," "Sugar, We're Going Down," "This Ain't a Scene, it's an Arms Race," "I Don't Care,", "Thnks fr th Mmrs", "America's Suitehearts", and "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)". They have currently released six albums and have had better than a dozen singles total.

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}}'' and one ridiculous amount of Michael Jackson references (for their cover of "Beat It"). 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.

* BreakUpSong: It's more which ones aren't technically entirely break up songs. Or which ones aren't break up songs at all, but are written in a way that reads as one.

* {{Emo Music}}: One of the most contentious topics you'll hear discussed about the band, as the page intro would tell you. Your understanding of emo likely informs whether or not you think emo was a footnote in FOB's story or a defining aspect. In the mid-00s, Fall Out Boy were seen by some as the poster children for "emo pop", described as a style mixing the gloominess and hardcore punk elements of emo with catchy pop punk. That being said, a lot of bands including Fall Out Boy were lumped into that categorization and mocked to the point where that categorization would be considered a smear rather than an accurate assessment of their genre. As mentioned in the note on top of the page, Fall Out Boy took influence from early emo acts such as Braid (The title of Grand Theft Autumn is a direct reference to a Braid song of the same name), but the band started swerving from that path as soon as Infinity on High, even as soon as From Under The Cork Tree if you're feeling charitable. The early emo influence fell out in favor of general pop rock with a particular emphasis on the ''pop'' and [[GenreRoulette experimentation in other genres]] by way of incorporating elements of hip-hop, electronic music, and others. Even with the early emo influences, Fall Out Boy never considered themselves an emo band and often rejected being lumped in with the other bands that got put into the category around the mid-00s, even calling the tendency out lyrically on Thriller[[note]]Make us poster boys for your scene, but we are not making an acceptance speech[[/note]] and the entirety of "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race".

* FunWithAcronyms: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] by "w.a.m.s." Not only is "wams" not a word, but the band has also never said what it stands for, making it an entirely pointless acronym (although some have speculated that it stands for "Writer/Actor/Model/Singer", though the band rejected this notion).

* TheFunInFuneral: Patrick tries to make the guests happy and make them sing at Pete's (apparent) funeral in "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race".

* GaniaxEnding: A few songs end with strange chant-like poems as a last verse. One of the most odd examples would be 'Twenty Dollar Nose Bleed' which is an upbeat pop song otherwise.

** If anyone is willing to explain what "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me" has to do with ''[[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire hunting]]'', please [[IncrediblyLamePun enlighten]] us.
** And if anyone can see the connection between [[StalkerWithACrush the lyrics]] of [[IntercourseWithYou "Sugar We're Going Down"]] and human-deer hybrids, that would seriously en-[[IncrediblyLamePun deer]] him/her to us. (The band originally kept getting video concepts that made just as much sense but were woefully generic, including one involving a pool party, so when the video treatment with good ol' Deer Boy came along, they leapt at it.)
** Let's not even get started with their Young Blood Chronicles series of music videos. Someone should [[RuleOfThree give them]] [[IncrediblyLamePun a hand]] for keeping up with this trope for so long.
** When you make a cheesy basketball themed music video for a song about an unhealthy relationship, then make another video for it focusing on pug doggy shenanigans, then team up with Demi Lovato to kinda remake an *NSYNC music video? it's safe to say your band finds this trope [[OverlyLongGag Irresi]][[IncrediblyLamePun stible]].
* {{Mondegreen}}: Because of Patrick's singing style, [[TheUnintelligible you sometimes won't know what the hell he's saying.]] This has started some common fandom in-jokes such Patrick being a little man, who's also evil and also into cats (by way of "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race") and the unofficial fandom holiday, Heavy Irish Pepper Day (by way of "Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner", which falls on February 4th each year.) The band and other acts associated with have acknowledged the mondegreen based in-jokes, most notably with having their official comeback in 2013 fall on Heavy Irish Pepper Day.
