6 Honest Fall Out Boy Song Titles From 'Under The Cork Tree'
Ah, Fall Out Boy. The patron saints of melodramatic millennial middle schoolers and high schoolers everywhere. Their appeal was not only in their deliverance of high energy beats laced with passive aggressive, cutting lyrics, but also in their tongue in cheek song titles that said a lot more about the band’s brand as a whole than their songs even did. Fall Out Boy just got what it was to be a teenager, to the point where our consciences started sounding a lot more like Patrick Stump than ourselves. Whatever, there are definitely worse things. Stump is the man.
The thing about having such cheeky yet lengthy song titles, though, is that often times, they were sort of misleading. Oh, who am I kidding? Nine times out of ten if a Fall Out Boy song title surpassed four words it was actually just a Mad Hatter riddle. But, the fun thing about that is that us fans knew what they meant without them having to tell us… ish. The song titles are and were like an inside joke and outsiders looking in just aren’t able to speak the language.
So, in honor of their album From Under The Cork Tree turning a whopping 10 years old, here are some of those infamous song titles stripped bare. In other words, here are the honest version of some of From Under The Cork Tree’s longest and most confusing titles.
