Fall Out Boy

The first song on the fifth Fall Out Boy album is called ‘Lullabye/Disloyal Order Of Water Buffalos’. Well, of course it is. And among the rock operatics and ‘Radio Ga Ga’-style chants of “Detox! /Just to retox!” sits one of Pete...

Girls! Stop breaking Pete Wentz’s heart! His rock career to date has been blighted by you harpies, flitting in with your dainty feet and curves, and making him write songs about emotional turmoil, instead of The Big Issues like hardcore-scene...
