Fall Out Boy is an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois, formed in 2001. The band consists of vocalist-rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump, lead guitarist Joe Trohman, bassist Pete Wentz, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Since February 2010, the band has been on indefinite hiatus.[1]

Band Members

Though there were a few early line-up changes, the band is best known as having the following members.

Pete Wentz

Pete Wentz (Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III) is the bassist, lyricist, and occasional backing-vocalist of Fall Out Boy. He is credited as creating all of Bandom and is the founder of the Decaydance record label, which began as a subset of FOB's Fueled by Ramen. He was married to Ashlee Simpson until 2011 but is most likely paired with FOB vocalist Patrick Stump in fic. He is also paired with Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance, with whom he became close when the bands toured together on Van's Warped Tour in the summer of 2005; this time period has since been dubbed by fans as "The Summer of Like."

Patrick Stump

Patrick Stump (born Patrick Stumph) is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and primary song composer for the band. He produces records for a number of the other Bandom bands.

Joe Trohman

Joe Trohman is the lead guitarist and backing vocalist, and rarely gets paired with anyone, though he and his wife are occasionally background characters in Pete/Patrick fics.

Andy Hurley

Andy Hurley is the band's drummer and percussionist. Since Fall Out Boy's hiatus he has drummed in the band The Damned Things.
