I'm going to see them for the first time on Saturday, and I'm stoked! In honor of this, here's my ranking of their albums.
  1. American Beauty/American Psycho
    It's not that I don't like this album; I do. It's just not that angsty Fall Out Boy that I love. Favorite Lyric: "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean any of it. I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa. In between being young and being right, you were my Versailles at night."
  2. Take This to Your Grave
    I know less songs from this one than AB/AP, but the songs I do know, I like more. That's really the only reason this one ranks above it--and because of the classic FOB angst. Favorite lyric: "Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me. Hide the details, I don't want to know a thing."
  3. Folie à Deux
    Many people don't like this album, but it got me through a rough time a few years back. I think it's underrated for sure. Favorite lyric: "I'm a mascot for what you've become. I love the mayhem more than the love."
  4. From Under the Cork Tree
    Amazing sophomore album. Their arguably most well-known song is from this album. Favorite Lyric: "Am I more than you bargained for yet? I've been dying to tell you anything you want to hear cause that's just who I am this week."
  5. Save Rock and Roll
    I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I wasn't a super big fan of FOB before their resurgence with this album. But this album is so GOOD, and it got me hooked. Also, they have my boy, Elton on the title track! Favorite lyric: "Come on make it easy, say I never mattered. Run it up the flagpole. We will teach you how to make boys next door out of assholes."
  6. Infinity on High
    While Save Rock and Roll might be a better album, this one ranks above it because it has most of my favorite songs. It was really hard to pick a favorite lyric, but I have to go with one from my favorite ever FOB song. Favorite lyric: "So hum hallelujah just off the key reason. I thought I loved you; it was just how you looked in the light. A teenage vow in a parking lot, 'till death do us part.' I sing the blues and swallow them too."
