The 10 Best Fall Out Boy Songs Of All Time
Start writing a post

Fall Out Boy is one of those bands that seems like they have been around forever. Granted, the band formed in 2001, but just when you think they've finished writing music they hit you with another album. The band is now known as one of the greatest pop punk/rock bands around, and the highlight of everyone's best emo phase.

Here are my top 10 best Fall Out Boy songs of all time.

1. 'Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy Tonight'

This was the very first song I ever heard of theirs. A friend of mine from grade school introduced me to the band with this song. I was a bit hesitant after listening to it, and then the rest of "Take This To Your Grave," but after a few more listen they grew on me.

2. 'The Music Or The Misery'

"From Under The Cork Tree" was probably the album that truly launched them into fame. Featuring the song "Sugar, We're Goin Down," the band picked up a lot of following. However, this song (only found on the Limited Tour Edition of the album) I think really embodies why artists make music and how music can help through hard times.

3. 'Bang The Doldrums'

Whenever this song comes on my playlist, I never skip it. For some reason I just get caught up in the beat, and it never fails to put a smile on my face. It has a great rock sound to it without too much metal to it (which I personally enjoy).

4. 'America's Suitehearts'

This is one of those summer songs that you can't get out of your head. Off my second favorite album, "Folie a Deux," I feel like this album didn't get as much attention as it deserved in relation to how popular Fall Out Boy had gotten at that point. This should have been one of the best songs to blow up off the album.

5. '20 Dollar Nose Bleed'

This is probably my favorite song off the album "Folie a Deux." The lyrics are a masterpiece and the beat is uplifting and unique.

6. 'My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up)'

I was trying to keep very mainstream songs off the list, but if any band is going to come back from a break with this amazing of an album, the first single off that album must be included in a "best of all time" list. "Save Rock and Roll" was the most amazing album to come back with, and I think the band really found a new sound while still keeping traces of their old punk rock sounds.

7. 'Young Volcanoes'

You know a song is good when it is your mom's favorite song too. It's just a good song, that's all.

8. 'The Kids Aren't Alright'

Yep, none of us are doing OK at all. And this song is like a cry from the soul.

9. 'Jet Pack Blues'

This is just another good song that I think beat out the other songs from "American Beauty/American Psycho."

10. 'The Last Of The Real Ones'

The only song from "MANIA" on this list, but I personally believe this is the best song off that album. It took me a while to listen to "MANIA" and once I did, I still really liked this song the best.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
