About Fall Out Boy Merch
In Chicago, 2001, Fall Out Boy was formed by Joe Trohman and Pete Wentz. Trohman overheard Patrick Stump talking about the band Neurosis in a bookstore and invited him to join the band. Initially, Patrick auditioned as the drummer but his vocal talents were soon discovered and he took up the role of vocalist. T. J. Racine and a man known only as ‘Mike’ completed the line-up, on guitar and drums, respectively.
In 2002, the band recorded a demo and in May of that year, Uprising Records released their debut EP, followed by a mini LP, Fall Out Boy’s Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, in 2003. Following the record’s release, Andy Hurley joined the band, whilst Racine and Mike both left. It was around this time that Stump began to play the guitar for the band.
The band’s name is a reference to a character in The Simpsons. The character was the sidekick to Radioactive Man.
