I love Fall Out Boy because they understand like nobody else. Now I know full well that every teenage girl says this about every other band, but it's different. Every album, song, line, lyric, and word means a million things. They speak loud and clear to the outcasts and make them feel so not alone. To those ready to jump right off the edge, they have words to let them know they're not alone. To anyone fcked over by another person, or absolutely infatuated with someone to a point beyond comprehension, the boys in Fall Out Boy understand that. And so do all the others that listen to their words. There are bands who are more well-known and loved and famous, and all that crap, but there isn't a better band. Because these guys can leave us high and dry for four years and still when they come back, I don't wanna jump again. Because I feel just what I felt before. It's like lost love: once the one comes back, you're gonna forgive them and feel that connection again. And it'll be more than just crying over old photographs all the time. Fall Out Boy is everything: love, hate, laughter, sadness, anger, bitter, hope, a light at the end of the tunnel, loss, feeling lost, feeling understood, being found. To those who hate them, they honestly just don't understand the lyrics that are sang and how deep they truly run. I'm not just saying that, either. People feel a love for their favorite bands all the time, so why should this be any different? Maybe it shouldn't. Maybe I'm just another "whiny, desperate, burnout teenager begging for attention," but did The Beatles ever tell their fans-- multiple times, in song-- that the die-hards are way more important than any fame they could have? Possibly, I wouldn't have any idea, to tell you the truth. But I can tell you this: John, Paul, Ringo, and George singing Blackbird will never get my heart moving the way Hand Of God does, and that's enough for me. Panic! can't make my throat close when singing about an inescapable rut. Fall Out Boy is the best band in the world-- my world. I'm understood, and this band was and still is the first thing to truly make me feel that. I'll say to my grave that they were the best d a m n thing to ever happen to this miserable, stinking world.
