    Fall Out Boy - From Under the Cork Tree

    Fall Out Boy began making a name for themselves by playing gigs at house parties in their hometown of Chicago.

Take a listen and you'll be hooked.

    Fall Out Boy - From Under the Cork Tree Fun Facts
  • Up until their first concert, the band still didn't have a name. So they asked the audience what they should call themselves and a kid from the crowd shouted out, "Fall Out Boy!" - the name has stuck ever since.
  • From Under the Cork Tree debuted at #9 on the Billboard albums chart.
  • Fall Out Boy is planning three secret shows by the end of 2005 - one on the East Coast, one on the West Coast and one in the Midwest.
  • While most of the song titles are silly and sarcastic, one title wasn't just a goof. The track, Our Lawyer Made Us Change the Name of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued, was initially called My Name is David Ruffin and These Are the Temptations, but their lawyer said they would get sued for doing this!
